Spring 2016 Update

It’s amazing how I can be shoveling January snow one day and observing Memorial Day the next. Time moves too quickly. I wish it would slow down or, better yet, recycle itself. For that matter, I wish I could, too. The past few months, while exciting beyond words, have kept me super busy.

I still have several books in progress, but I’ve decided to keep them on the back burner while I pursue some exciting new opportunities. But of course, “back burner,” in my realm, only means putting the book together (typesetting, layout, pagination, TOC and index, cover design, and so on). I write the books in my head, then commit them to memory; I save the dirty work until later.

Exciting things are happening behind the scenes, and will continue to happen on into next year and beyond. Hint: Keep an eye on the Appearances page and watch [some of it] unfold. That’s all for now.

New Bell Witch Lecture and Paranormal Investigation at The Thomas House

, , , , , ,

November’s Bell Witch lecture and overnight paranormal investigation events at The Thomas House in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, went great. I would like to thank everyone who came; I couldn’t have asked for a better audience! The events proved popular, as three nights completely sold out and one night almost sold out.

Since then, I have received a steady stream of e-mails from people who couldn’t make it in November. I want to ensure that every person who wants to hear about the Bell Witch gets to do so–from me, and in person. So… Continue reading

New A&E TV Series — “Cursed: The Bell Witch!”

Tags

, , , , , , ,

I’m proud to be a part of A&E’s new fall TV series, “Cursed: The Bell Witch!”

This show goes where other productions wouldn’t go, and sheds much-needed light on one of America’s most terrifying ghost stories. The top-notch crew and other cast members went above and beyond in making sure the legend was “done right,” and it was both an honor and a pleasure to work with them.

I am unable to comment about the show’s plot or other details at this time, so I will leave you with A&E’s “first look” video of “Cursed: The Bell Witch!” Look for the show to begin airing in early October.

Here are a few upcoming events where I’ll be discussing the Bell Witch:

  • Red Boiling Springs, TN, October 9th and 10th, The Thomas House Hotel. I will be in a panel discussion with two other cast members, Sue Clifton (fiction author and ghost hunter) and Angel Leigh (psychic messenger). This is part of the Third Annual Sue Clifton / Pat Fitzhugh Paranormal Get-Together. Rooms are going fast–hurry! Oct. 10 is now SOLD OUT; a few rooms still remain for Oct. 9.
  • Red Boiling Springs, TN, November 6-7 & 13-14, The Thomas House Hotel. An intimate, one-person dinner theater lecture and book signing, entitled, “The Bell Witch: The Full Account: The People, The Legend, The Sprits, The Lies.” Dinner begins at 7 each night, with the book signing to follow. Additionally, registered overnight guests are eligible for an overnight paranormal investigation of the Thomas House, led by Pat Fitzhugh. Reservations are required. For details and info abount how to reserve, click here.
  • Memphis, TN, March 18-20, 2016, Hilton Memphis East. This is for MidSouthCon 34, one of the world’s largest sci-fi, art, gaming, and paranormal conventions. I will be participating on several panels, giving a lecture presentation or two, signing books…and who knows what else! Convention registration will begin shortly, and I will post more details then.
