1st Novel in the Series Updated

Minor changes have been made to the novel DARK NEIGHBORHOODS. For example: typos, punctuation errors that I found while correcting typos, some dialogue which I omitted in the update because I thought it was superfluous or was tangential to the plot, a couple of technical terms changed, and very minor characters combined or omitted in Chapter 11. Amazon-Kindle has probably notified you. In case you did not receive or open the email from them, do the following:

Go to Amazon-Kindle.
Sign in with your account number.
Go to Manage Your Kindle — it will show you what you downloaded.
Type the title (DARK NEIGHB0RHOODS).
Next to the title in blue will be Update Available.
Be sure your device (iPad, Tablet, computer, cellular phone, Kindle reader) is turned on.

Fortunately, Amazon-Kindle, knowing that writers are human and capable of making errors, allows us to make changes — either major or minor. I think that mine are considered minor because the story remains the same. I just hope it will move a little faster in the updated version.

Thank you very much.

Two Haunted Farmhouses in the USA, One Haunted Hotel in China

The Hardin farmhouse in southern Illinois near the university town of McAbee and the Reuter farmhouse near the Mississippi River in west central Illinois may not be haunted by ghosts in the traditional sense. Nor is the campus hotel on university property in northeast China. However, they are the sites of some deadly visitations by age-old entities that appear to be much more threatening than ghosts. As you noticed on a previous post to this blog, the Ouija Board party in the Hardin farmhouse, which only two people out of the five people in attendance have so far survived, is where it started in DARK NEIGHBORHOODS. Dr. Harper Paget also encountered these creatures that have been enemies of his ancestors for centuries on the university campus — in the hotel where he was living while he taught there — in DARK CORRIDORS. The question is . . . what will happen at the Reuter farmhouse located in the Warrick Bottoms near the small town of Warrick where he and Corey Braedon (see last post) grew up?
