Even though my bio is not on the website yet, I’ve been confirmed as a guest for the paranormal track at Imagicon this year, May 21st-23rd in Birmingham. We had such a great time last year, I’m really glad to be able to go back and do it again. My friend, author Van Allen Plexico is confirmed, too, so I’m looking forward to seeing him and all the other good people in Birmingham. This is only the 2nd year for this Con, but it’s already growing and getting better and better. And I’ll get to sign Haunted Marietta this year!
Haunted Marietta is selling quite well and getting enthusiastic feedback! Amazon has it on sale for $14.35 and has only two copies left; they say there are more on the way! Eddie Hunter, of the blog ‘Chicken Fat,” gave it an excllent review online, and I received email from a former classmate far away in Pennsylvania saying that she really loved the combination of history and the paranormal! I’ve had a signing at Barnes and Noble and I have one tomorrow at the Norcross Ghost Tour in Norcross, GA and one at Eagle Eye Bookshop in Decatur on Friday. Not bad for a book that has only been out 5 weeks…

Doctor Hans Holzer, widely regarded as “the Father of the Paranormal,’ is dead at 89. He died at home in Manhattan on Sunday.
For over 50 years, Dr. Holzer traveled the world, collecting stories and investigating ghosts and haunted places. He developed many of the protocols still used in paranormal investigation, and coined such terms as “sensitive” and “beings of light.” He had hundreds of television appearances on such early paranormal shows as “In Search Of” and many others, and authored over 145 books. It would be hard to think of anyone more influential or more respected in the paranormal field.
In recent years, Dr. Holzer’s health had begun to fail and he was unable to travel.
Dr. Holzer will be sorely missed. His daughter, Alexandra, is carrying on his work.
I am more proud than I can say to share this official press release with you. PLEASE Go check out the journal and tell me what you think, even if you are not into the paranormal!
March 1, 2009 – Today Nexus World Publications introduced its premier issue of The Journal of Anomalous Sciences, a new, state –of –the –art, bi-monthly, electronic magazine (eZine), filled with beautiful graphic artwork and stunning photography. The journal’s intention is to present the anomalous sciences in a showcase that will present the facts about new and wonderful discoveries in a format that will not only entertain the reader, but captivate and inform them on the latest discoveries and theories; in depth and thought provoking detail.
“The Journal of Anomalous Science’s sole mission is to present all the anomalous sciences that are researched and investigated by thousands of people, as the sciences they truly are – with opposing points of view and information that may not only surprise you, but spark your imagination!” said Jari Mikkola, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the journal.“The Journal of Anomalous Sciences is designed not only to attract a highly demanding audience that seeks the truth behind the information, but to allow that audience to decide for itself and make its own decisions about what to believe and what’s important.”
Research and analysis within the journal is presented in such a ground breaking manner that it is bound to open the mind, allowing readers to look at the anomalous sciences in a different way, opening new doors to bring these sciences into the mainstream, where before we could only use our imagination.
Subscribers will be able to enjoy the journal in three formats: by downloading the journal as a PDF file, to print or read at their leisure, as on-line web pages with the familiar look and feel of the web, or by enjoying the newest “flip” technology, which gives the reader a virtual experience of the familiar way of reading a paper magazine, while allowing a photograph to come to life with a video and audio experience one cannot get from a hard copy.
The eZine format will be a standard feature for subscribing members, with discount subscriptions available to organizations and groups. World Nexus Publication is making their premier issue FREE to everyone so that they may experience all the value and beauty of this full-color journal for themselves.
