“Paranormal Witness”

Paranormal_Witness

I didn’t start watching the hit SyFy program “Paranormal Witness” until just before its fourth season began to air. I set the DVD to record all episodes of it so I could catch up on what I’ve missed over the prior three seasons. Most episodes that I’ve seen deal with hauntings/ghosts. But not all. I’ve also seen an episode devoted to a very famous UFO sighting/abduction case. And, part of an episode that I watched yesterday was devoted to something of great interest to me – a werewolf case.

Growing up, werewolves terrified me. I could cope easily with anything else – ghosts, vampires, demons, zombies (which I’ve never been much of a fan of) genetic mutants, etc. But werewolves would give me horrible nightmares. Now, I work with my wife on the hit werewolf webcomic “MoonWraith“, and have written some werewolf literature, too. At some point over the years I’ve gone from being horrified of lycanthropy to being fascinated by it.

The “Paranormal Witness” episode in question was Season 2 Episode 10. The first half of it was titled “The Cabin”. It happened in London, Ohio in 1981, or 1982. I grew up in Marysville, Ohio, which is only about half an hour’s drive from London, Ohio. When the events covered in that episode of “Paranormal Witness” took place, I’d have been 6 or 7-years-old. I was never aware of this case until watching that episode of “Paranormal Witness” yesterday. Had I know about those goings-on as a child, I might still be in therapy, given my extreme werewolf phobia while growing up!

Now, as a 40-year-old adult, I find the case of great interest – both on a personal level, and a professional one as a bestselling, award-winning author of horror, and the paranormal. I don’t want to give spoilers of the episode here, and take anything away from “Paranormal Witness”. So I’ll only say here that the case involved a young family, who lived in a fairly secluded place, surrounded by woods, being stalked for months by what may well have been a werewolf. What the husband and his friend were shown at the close of the case gave me serious chills!

Given my interest in topics such as this, I want to, once again, extend an invitation to anyone reading this to contact me with any such sightings/encounters of your own. It needn’t necessarily be a werewolf sighting, either. I’m interested in all areas of the paranormal, and cryptozoology. Please get in touch via the “Contact” page on my website.

Halloween Is Coming

Protect_Yourself_Final_Cover

Halloween is just around the corner – a little over a month away. Given that, now is the perfect time to check out the paranormal self-help book “Protect Yourself: A Handbook for the Recognition of the Supernatural for Defensive Purposes“, by my good friend Eldritch Thorn.

The link I’ve included above is for Smashwords, trying to cut out middlemen, and boost direct sales for my friend. But the book is a bestseller over on OmniLit.

The book covers a wide array paranormal creatures, from Angels to Zombies. Check it out!

“Protect Yourself” By Eldritch Thorn

Eldritch Thorn is a fellow Umbral Press author and friend. He was the first person that Desiree and I extended an invitation to publish when we launched Umbral Press. “Protect Yourself” was written and released by Eldritch Thorn before Umbral Press opened its doors. Even had the book been ready after Umbral Press opened, it isn’t something we’d have taken on via the publishing house. “Protect Yourself” is non-fiction, and that’s something we aren’t publishing via Umbral Press. However, as Eldritch Thorn is a friend, I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know about this bestselling book by him as Halloween is approaching.

Protect_Yourself_Final_Cover

You can find “Protect Yourself” here. It’s a paranormal self-help book that deals all a wide variety of supernatural threats – astral entities, vampires, dragons, werewolves, demons, zombies, ghosts, etc. There’s even an entry in the book on angels.

Eldritch Thorn is a bestselling pagan author of non-fiction, and hardcore erotica. Follow the link for “Protect Yourself”, and you can search for his bestselling erotica novel “Lovers’ Veil”, and find it on the same site. Eldritch Thorn has years of paranormal investigation experience. He knows what he’s talking about in “Protect Yourself”! Some of the things talking about in the book are from his own, personal experiences. Most of what he discusses along those lines in the book are not pleasant! It’s because of things such as those that he wrote the book.

So, if you, or someone you know, is coping with a supernatural threat of some type, grab a copy of “Protect Yourself”. It may well hold the key to solving a bad situation.
