Last Saturday. September 30, 2017, about 30 showed up at the Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula, CA, for a special presentation and book signing. My guest was Brandon Alvis with Apra Paranormal. We discussed haunted Southern California hotels as well as Alvis' new webseries, Ephemera. It seems as though the ghosts may have made their presence known. Sensor alarms were repeatedly triggered throughout the building during our entire presentation.
Last September 23, 2017, I gave a presentation and signed books at Dark Delicacies, located at 3512 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505. A sizable crowd turned out and we had a great time.
Susan Slaughter of Ghost Hunters International and Steve Gonsalves of Ghost Hunters dropped by for a visit. I think you can tell that I was thrilled to see them both. I took my first selfie! Thanks Dark Delicacies for hosting the event!
