Why do I think my home is creepy? by Barbara Edwards #Halloweenbloghop #Giveaway

It’s no surprise that living in Connecticut contributed to my interest in the paranormal. this small state is a hotbed of weird and unusual happenings. Where do I start?
Snarlolgy Halloween Blog Hop Yellow 2Many towns have cemeteries that host grave from the early 1700s. Settlers had their own superstitions that they brought from their countries of origins. When a town had reports of a family dying from no known cause, the village elders and family concluded it was a vampire. the first girl who died was dug up and her bones burned tot stop the deaths. Strangely, it worked. Hmmm.
A sandbank collapsed to reveal coffins buried away from consecrated land. When open the coffins held skeletons with he bones rearranged. The femurs were on the chest in the shape of a cross, the skull, placed on the pelvis. This was a European belief to keep the dead from returning as a vampire.
Many cemeteries like the one in Burlington have a resident ghost. This one is called the Green Lady. No one knows if she is buried there or if her murdered body was dumped in the swamp where she hovers. She cries for justice. My sons actually went there to debunk the legend and got scared spit-less by her screams. or maybe they scared each other.
How about the famous Charter Oak? when the first farmer plowed the land around the massive oak, the local Indian Chief approached him to ask the tree be left to grow. The reason? It was vital to their magic ceremonies. The farmer wisely let it alone and it became a part of history.
Have you heard of the Moodus moans? loud sounds come from under the earth at random times. hunters have looked into caves, but found no real reason for the sounds.
The Connecticut Trail from the Boston area to Windsor and Hartford is haunted by those seeking a new home who died and were buried in graves long lost to memory.

Dudleyville, CT

Dudleytown is famous for its haunted memory. the town had a history of madness and no longer exists. People ofter visit the site and return reports of odd feelings, an atmosphere of fear and loathing.
How about the beach on the Long Island Shore where the British chained convicts to rocks at low tide and left them to drown when the tide came in. People hear their screams of anguish when the tide is rising. Creepy.
Did you notice I didn’t give you the names of the towns? Many residents don’t want to have their town known for paranormal activity. I can respect that. I don’t want anyone checking out my house because its haunted.
I’m learning more and more about my home state as I continue research on “Jacob” my next Rhodes End Series book and “Daniel” the following book.

Since we’ve been talking about promo for what seems like forever, I shared my last post. I hoped to save you all some time. And I got a number of thanks. One of my friends mentioned another spot I use often called romance books4us that I forgot.
Awk. I then realized I have a slew more places, some you’re familiar with like Facebook and Twitter. Others like Triberr are not so popular any more.

Each of these places is special. Check out what you think will help.
Ask if you need more information.

Guess where I found promo by Barbara Edwards

Alright, I wanted a catchy hook to drag you to this post.
I’m sharing info with you today.
It’s not easy to find those promo sites where you can post your new release, get a review or cheaply send tweets to thousands.
I didn’t purposely collect so many places.
When I knew my short Christmas story, Dixie’s Gift, would be released this autumn, I started collecting places. Theses are all from my twitter feed. Every one of them followed me and I followed them back. When a likely place popped up, I added it to my favorites with a bookmark.
Yikes! Little did I know I’d find such a varied treasure lode.
I’m not saying I’ve used them all, or recommend one or the other. I’m saying I checked all of them and am using a few I found good for me.
So, with my best wishes, here:
