SKELETONS SOLD AT PTOWN’S EAST END MARKETPLACE

The East End Marketplace in Provincetown--a cozy place to hang out on a cold winter day!

I’m pleased to announce that Provincetown’s East End Marketplace is carrying copies of Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole: Tales from Haunted Disney World.

The East End Marketplace is located at 212 Bradford Street (at the corner of Howland Street) and is open year-round. It features a grocery and a selection of local wines, and their specialty is homemade food, such as Apple Crisp (to die for), meat loaf, macaroni and cheese and pot pie. Their terrific deli offers breakfast sandwiches, subs, and soups made to order.

In addition, it’s a local hang out. There are tables to eat at, and it’s not unusual to see people stopping in just to chat.

If you’re up in Provincetown, be sure to stop in and say hello!

I love this picture of Gary with the books at the counter!

PARANORMAL, POE, AND GHOSTS IN DISNEY ON THE INVISIBLE WORLD

In October, I was featured on Frank Todaro’s Paranormal Internet Radio Show The Invisible World.

Recently, people have been dropping me e-mails asking me where they can find it. I looked back through my posts and realized I’d never posted the re-play, so here it is!

The Invisible World explores paranormal news and features guests discussing all that’s happening in the paranormal—be it UFO sightings, cryptids, ghosts and hauntings, conspiracies, and much more. Frank features guests from all walks: writers, investigators, psychics, and paranormal celebrities. The hour-long show is always entertaining and features psychic Lady Fontaine as well.

Support Frank and head on over to The Invisible World at www.blogtalkradio.com/theinvisibleworld and check out Episode 33—you can play it right from his page. Extra bonus? Nathan is featured on Episode 31. Or…you can just click & listen below!

SKELETONS IN THE SWIMMIN’ HOLE WENT GAGA…

These gals had awesome costumes! Got them posing with the book...

…for Halloween at The Lumberyard Pub in Redding, Connecticut. We had a signing going on while people in costumes had their faces painted and partied the night away. It was totally fun! Here’s pix from our night (wish I’d gotten more)…

I thought the cobwebs on this light were kinda interesting...

Outside display. I LOVE the purple lights and was glad I could capture the mood with my camera!

The Lumberyard has awesome food. I had chicken fingers and fries.

I LOVED these guys' outfits!

Of course, I had to have my picture taken with Tigger!

The whole reason I bought the Twister costume was for the bag. Yes, I'm a bag girl. I own no shoes, but a TON of bags!

Jen, the owners' daughter, was a lumberjack.

I thought the ax was a nice touch!

Chilean miners were actually pretty popular. Here's one with Tigger.

We got to enjoy a bonfire!

Here's me in my costume!

PIX: SKELETONS UNMASKED AT THE ANNEX!

Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole – Tales from Haunted Disney World‘s last signing of 2010 was held at Annex Comics and Cards on Broadway in Newport, RI. Here’s photos from the event! Enjoy!

There's so much fun stuff all over Wayne's place. It's a great big colorful piece of eye candy!

Zombies are huge at the Annex. Live in Newport and a Zombie Freak? Don't miss ZOMBIE FRIDAYS!!

Wayne has so many things to look at in his shop! It's like going to a huge art gallery.
