ANNOUNCEMENT 3: This blog is going on hiatus for a few months. With all the promotion for “Haunted Missouri,” and the research and writing for my next book of paranormal stories, I have to take a break. Fresh “From the Shadows” entries will resume this fall. Stay tuned!
But, please, if you have any stories of the paranormal, let me know. Even though I’m taking a break from this blog, I’m still writing the book; your stories will be welcomed. I can always be reached at email@example.com.
