It’s one day to Halloween! I am sucker for Halloween movies, or rather ANYTHING festive. It’s still not Christmas, but I love it.
I’ve been looking forward to Houcs Pocus, Casper, and ABC Family’s 13 nights of Halloween. For those not in the US, sorry for being so specific. One thing I love though, that all countries can appreciate, are cemeteries.
I don’t love them for the morbid sentiments they represent. I don’t really love current cemeteries either. I love the history in older plots. Europe has amazing old cemeteries. So do a lot of the older states in the US, those pre-civil war. Granted, it’s neat to see a lot of the old west headstones too, like Calamity Jane. History is everywhere and sometimes the dead are the best ones to tell the story. What the story is though, can be a mystery.
I have a new release coming out tomorrow. Garden of Souls. It’s part of the Spooktacular Seducations Anthology. The inspiration behind my story is actually my old neighborhood. The cemetery I envisioned is very real, and so is the carriage house. Granted, I don’t think the carriage house I used to babysit in was really haunted. Well, that’s what I tell myself these days 🙂
So here are some photos by my dear friend Cheryl Fundakowski. I would hug her for taking these photos of Hillside Cemetery. I just don’t live close enough. It has civil war veteran’s buried here among so many more.
Stop by tomorrow for a whole bunch of giveaways for the new release.
