Well, I got quite a bit more work done on the new book today – the one which will combine my other two books Dark Secrets and Shadows in the Night into one volume.
I have estimated that it will contain well over 200 pages with additional text and new photographs. Its not really hard work, just time-consuming, and free time is something I don‘t have too much of at the moment. This might sound ‘big headed‘, but there is so much interest in this new publication; well, not just this one but in the other two, that I have little doubt it will be a success.
Managed to get to the Post Office lunchtime and there was one letter of particular interest. The envelope told you immediately that it wasn’t a standard book order or some statement or other; but was personally addressed in neat handwriting in pen. (To make it more intriguing, it was addressed to the Society but marked for my personal attention). I decided to take it home to read as something to look forward to; besides, I never like reading personal letters in the street.
It was from a lady near Folkstone who had recently purchased Dark Secrets, and who wanted to share a couple of her ‘ghost experiences’ with me and to ask my opinion on these. She said she also had a ‘ghost photograph’ taken in her house that she wanted to send; but had really written in this instance to make sure her letter reached me and to ask if I was interested.Well, I certainly am as it sounds as if I might get more information on ‘entities’ that seem to make regular appearances at night, as this one apparently does. Its early days and I have not replied yet. Think I’ll ask her for a phone contact number as I simply haven’t got time at present to write prolonged ‘land letters’.
That reminds me, I also intend to bring out a second part to my true ghost stories book, Dark Journey. I have accumulated many new ghost stories, but that has now got to be put on hold until the other three are finished.
Had an email from my friend C. today who wanted to know about ‘recent developments’ and who just could not believe some of the things he’d heard and seen. I’ve said I will explain when I see him (which he promised would be soon) as it was far to complex to explain in long emails.
That’s just one other thing I don’t really have time for at the moment!
