DID YOU MISS PARANORMAL EH?’S ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW? GRAB A BEER AND LISTEN HERE!

It’s hard to believe a whole year has passed since Paranormal, Eh? made its debut. What’s really odd is I remember the debut episode—I listened to Episodes 1 and 2, in fact, from my apartment inProvincetownat the Norman Mailer Writer’s Colony. It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year, and I’m honored Terry asked me to be on the show with the gang from Our Haunted Lives and some special guests like Occult Specialist Nathan Schoonover, and we talk about the Amityville Horror, hauntings, and more! Plus, hear what’s been up on clips from his best shows and what’s coming up for 2012 on this special show!

You can listen to the anniversary show right on Paranormal, Eh? Radio here:

WHO GOT PARANORMAL EH?’s COVETED ZOMBIE BEAVER AWARDS THIS YEAR…AND A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

I had fun with new friends and old last month when Paranormal, Eh? radio out of Canada announced the winners of its coveted Zombie Beaver End of the Year Awards for 2011.

I was invited to call in, have a few laughs, hear about the great things coming up for friends like Frank Todaro of The Invisible World and Nicole and Angel of CT Soul Seekers…and make a very special announcement about what’s on my horizon for next year!

You can listen to the show, hear the winners (and a few jokes about the October snowstorm and blackout), and my special announcement—right here!

MISS ‘WHY GHOSTS LOVE ME?’ FUNDRAISER? PIX AND VIDS HERE!

Thanks to Jennifer Strickler Cole for this fantastic pic! I don't exactly know what they're doing--trying to scare up ghosts?--but here they are, left to right, Frank Todaro of The Invisible World, Terri J Garafolo of Entities-R-Us, Nicole Hall of CT Soul Seekers, Mike Mafara of CPEAR, Nathan Schoonover of various paranormal and TV programs, Angel Ortiz of CT Soul Seekers, and Andy Siedel of Indy Para.

Why Ghosts Love Me at St. Peter’s Masonic Lodge #21 in New Milford, Connecticut was a huge success! If you missed it, here’s photos and video.

Frank Todaro, of The Invisible World, and Nathan Schoonover are ready to go!

Nathan Schoonover of A&E’s Extreme Paranormal, Travel Channel’s Paranormal Challenge and The Ghostman & Demon Hunter Show was on hand for spooky stories and Halloween fun. The presentation included ghostly stories and paranormal evidence with guest speakers Nicole Hall and Angel Ortiz of Connecticut Soul Seekers, Terri J Garofalo of Entities-R-Us—ghost hunting comics—Donna Parish-Bischoff of Indy Paranormal and Frank Todaro of The Invisible World Radio. I was there signing copies of my book, Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—Tales from Haunted Disney World, and was joined by fellow horror short fiction writer Stacey Longo, also of New England Horror Writers Association.

Proceeds from all sales and admission went toward the upkeep of the historical St. Peter’s Lodge.

The entrance to the lodge. The Masons did a great job decorating the outside! Carl Keyser, of the lodge, is facing the camera; he also did the event’s flyer.

Billy Mo Buckbee, longtime friend and member of the Lodge, created this cemetery to the right of the stairs.

Nathan had tables for presenters on reserve.

The alcove where presenters set up their tables. The stained glass windows are just so gorgeous; at last year’s event, this area was cordoned off.

Dinner of champions! Seriously, they have good food available at these events. That burger was delicious. Just rare enough to be juicy.

You know, clowning around… Billy and Nathan or Obadiah Stane and Tony Stark?

You just gotta love a changing portrait!

What was cracking us up about these portraits was that Nathan said they took down a couple of portraits of lodge members and put these there instead.

Taking a break outside. The jack o'lanterns were a great touch...and kept Sam away, of course (points if you know what I’m talking about). They were carved by Lodge members Carl Keyser and Billy Mo Buckbee.

Thanks to Jennifer Strickler Cole for this fantastic pic! It looks like they’re finally ready to begin!

Frank Todaro delivers his "Campfire Stories," which is a popular segment of his show, The Invisible World.

…because neither Nathan nor Frank can go very long without mentioning either thing…

Nathan gives his opinion on a Campfire Story.

This is the ghostly bride Billy hung from a lamppost. It reminded me of Miss Havisham.

The St. Peter's Lodge silhouette on one of the pumpkins. Carl Keyser did this. It rocked, yes!

Nathan's second biggest fear: Sharks. His first? Trolls.

Good friends Michele Ingram (left) and Maureen McFarlane (who does all my headshots) joined us for the night!

Chilling out on the back porch. It had been a hot day, and I'd been running around so much that, when the night set in, it was refreshing to sit outside.

I cleaned up the kitchen and set up coffee for the next morning. I didn't hit the sack until 5:30 a.m. Sunday.
