New Book From The Weird New Jersey Guys: Weird Encounters: True Tales of Haunted Places
The new book is all based on US hauntings. Here's some information on what it's about from Amazon:
"Scarier and stranger than any multiplex horror movie, Weird Encounters features more than 75 supernatural stories contributed by writers from across the country. Compiled by Joanne M. Austin, editor of the hugely successful Weird Hauntings, this chilling anthology tells of “Historic Haunts,” and “Hostel Environments” and conjures up a host of phantasms, paranormal pranksters, and devilishly destructive spirits-like the deceased owner of an Illinois inn whose ghost gets fresh with his female patrons and the bridge in Mississippi that's haunted by a serial murderer and his victims"
What I like about the last book it's written with a sense of humor. Just like Anthony Bourdain's books (Love his books too!). It makes the reading much more enjoyable. Weird NJ has books out on many US states and Europe.
For those who want to know "who they are"? They have a "special" on their website for a free magazine (you just have to pay shipping).
"If you've never read an issue of Weird NJ and are curious as to what it's all about, we have a special offer. We will send you one FREE copy of our magazine for you to review and keep. You just pay the $2.50 postage to have your issue delivered to you. More info here… Or, If you prefer to order by mail, you can send a check for $2.50 payable to Weird NJ, to Weird NJ, PO Box 1346 Bloomfield, NJ, 07003. Be sure you include a note that says, "I want my free issue of Weird NJ."
Can't wait to start reading this book!
*Plus Ryan Buell and Joanne Austin will be both at the Paranormal Books and Curiosities on Sept. 25th (this coming Saturday) in Asbury Park, NJ from 3-6PM for Book Signings.
