Many thanks to fans who braved the chilly weather to be a part of my storytelling and book signing events in Sparta, TN, yesterday and last night. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the turnout and everyone’s enthusiasm. As always, your interest and support are greatly appreciated; people like you are why I have been doing these and similar appearances for almost 40 years now. I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s events! We’ve only just begun.
It has been a busy yet productive fall, winter, and spring, and new BELL WITCH-related lectures, books, and other items are on this year’s horizon! More on that in the coming weeks. This is, of course, in addition to several other projects I am currently working on.
I will also be talking more about the Bell Witch development I posted recently, regarding an old, 1856 reprinted account of the BELL WITCH that recently surfaced, and its impact on a theory recently popularized by the skeptical community.
Meanwhile, I am leaving you with photos from two BELL WITCH lectures and storytelling sessions I did last fall–one in Sparta, Tennessee, and another at the McCracken County Public Library in Paducah, Kentucky. Enjoy.
At the McCracken County Public Library in Paducah, Kentucky, promoting and discussing the legend of the “Bell Witch” and signing copies of “Ghostly Cries From Dixie” and “The Bell Witch: The Full Account.” It was a fun night, and I really enjoyed hearing everyone’s stories and experiences. I also had a lot fun touring the city the next day.
@ Paducah, Kentucky
Lecture and Signing @ Sparta, TN / October 2016. Actually TWO–a day matinee-type lecture and signing, followed by one in the evening. There is nothing better than the small, intimate setting that a coffee house/bookstore provides. A couple months later, I taught a paranormal investigation class and led an all-night ghost investigation at the same location.
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.
Tuesday July 14th from 10P-Midnight (Central Time)
I will be joining Dave Schrader on Darkness Radio to discuss the legend of Tennessee’s infamous “Bell Witch,” and the cold-blooded terror an entity named “Kate” inflicted on the John Bell family, changing their lives forever.
I’ll be joining Dean on “The Kentucky Ghost Hunter” radio show this Thursday night, May 7th, from 9P-10P Central Time.
