You never can tell with ghosts…

Oysterville Store, October 4, 2014

Seeing my name in print is always a bit startling, even when I expect it. Seeing it in handwritten print on a sign on the front door of the Oysterville Store the other day was not only unexpected but delightful! Right there in Greg’s distinctive printing! And in red!

It is, of course, the announcement of the book-signing event for Ghost Stories of the Long Beach Peninsula – this Saturday at 5 o’clock. “Sydney’s spooky stories told in Oysterville Store” it says. Hmmm. I’m hoping that the ‘t’ in ‘told’ might turn out to be a misprint. Maybe it should be an ‘s.’ You never can tell with ghosts…

For sure I’ll be introducing the ghosts in the book and telling a bit of the back stories about them and the people and places they haunt. Since three of those places are right here in Oysterville, there is always the possibility that there will be an unexplained visitor or two at the store that evening. Or, if we are lucky, some of the folks who have had first-hand experiences with these spirited souls will tell their side of things.

Available NOW!

The book, of course, is more about the history of this area than it is about spooky stories. In some ways that probably makes it more shivery. The stories occur locally in recognizable places and are about real people (some you may even know) interacting with known or unknown people (or things) from the past.  There’s always the thought that you, too, could have a similar experience. Or maybe you have had and will share your stories on Saturday!

I’ve always thought that there might be the possibility of a sequel to this book. You never can tell with ghosts…

    Hey Sydney: I’m so glad the event was well-attended. Sounds like you (and Greg) wowed the crowds! Sorry I couldn’t be there — I was marching in the Dia de Los Muertes for Jimella and my mom: the Tucson event that draws 20,000 or more to honor friends, family, and all beloveds who has died.
