Dark Side Demon Monday – Ghosts

400px-Catrinas_2I’m busy working on a new short story for THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF GHOST ROMANCE which brings us to today’s topic on Dark Side Demon Monday: Ghosts. There are so many different kinds of ghosts in various cultures, from those who act as spirit guides to poltergeists to revenants, who return from the dead to haunt the living. In some cultures the spirits of the dead are celebrated, such as in Mexico with their Day of the Dead on November 2 (which coincides with the Catholic All Souls Day). Since there are so many variations on ghosts depending on culture, today I’d like to ask you two very simple questions.

The first: Do you believe in ghosts?

The second: Have you ever had a ghostly encounter?

As for me, the answer to the first question is a big yes. It’s also a big yes as to whether or not I’ve ever had a ghostly encounter.

One of those encounters was rather frightening and happened in Mystic, Connecticut. You can click here to read more about that ghostly encounter.

The other was not quite as awful and involved the presence of spirit orbs at a family event and also at DragonCon. You can click here to learn more about spirit orbs and see some of the pictures we took.

Thanks for dropping by! I’d love to hear your answers to those questions as well as any ghostly visits you may wish to share.
