Blogging. Is very 2010. Let’s do something better/easier/more fun.
Mobile Ghosts and Haunted Mobile have a new FB page — just for ghosts, Mobile’s haunted events and the odd things that have happened to me while working on the ghost books, the blog or when I’m out and about helping people with ghost situations.
Today a comment was submitted about a true Battle House Hotel experience, and I did not want anybody to miss it — here it is as a guest post, with thanks to Serena for sharing it with us!
“I stayed at the Battle House Hotel a couple of years ago, and had a rather chilling experience myself!
I was with a couple of friends and everyone had been drinking, so went to bed pretty quickly and slept through the night. Everyone went to eat breakfast early that morning, but I stayed in bed. When I woke up around 10, everyone was still gone. I laid there but noticed I was hearing something in the bathroom. Somehow it clicked in my mind that the water was running. The sound stopped, but then it started up again. I was completely startled and just ready to get out the room, after sitting there stunned trying to figure out if I was really hearing the water running.
It was one of those things where you know you are really hearing physical vibrations, not just conjuring something up in your head (especially since I wasn’t scared the night before; why would I be on edge when I woke up in the morning.) Anyways, after reasoning with myself I decided I was too spooked to stay in the room, got dressed quickly, and fled that hotel room to wait for my friends!”
If you’re making plans for a busy December holiday season — especially for family gatherings or people visiting from out of town — you’ll be happy to know that Mobile has a new paranormal option.
Church Street Graveyard, the Fort, Bienville Square — Spirit Expeditions invites you to get up close and personal with any lingering spirits in our very haunted, historic downtown area. Your tour host is Tom Rouse, musician, author, investigator and skeptical ghost enthusiast.
Find out more by visiting the website (linked above) or give Tom a call at 1-855-99GHOST.
I am currently NOT at the Spanish Fort Books-A-Million. I am really sorry if this causes anyone any hassle or inconvenience.
I arrived to find them unaware of my signing, and they had NO copies of my book on hand to sell, much less sign, had I stayed.
Again — really sorry, you guys! My apologies!
If you already have a copy and are in the area, I’ll also be very happy to talk ghosts, give you a signed bookplate or just visit if you drop in. A blog reader submitted a comment last week about dealing with ghost troubles, and I replied to it — but worth repeating here that there is help available. So I’m happy to talk with you about that, too. Hope to meet you there!
Sharon toured some of our ghostly locations, took gorgeous photos and filed this for Al.com, which also features special ghost star, Mobile Ghosts blog favorite pal, the great James Rosier… great job!
You guys, I found out late this afternoon that BAM wants to reschedule the signing for this Saturday, the 12th, at the Spanish Fort location. It will now take place in November.
The signing on the 26th of October in Mobile, as far as I know, is still on. But I’ll let you know if that gets changed, too.
