Halloween in March? Why not.

The groundwork has been laid. The characters are in position. Let the haunting begin! I'm excited to start into the actual "Ghost" part of The Ghost of Spring. To keep me in a spooky mood I've been reading ghost stories, listening to spooky podcasts, watching scary shows all month. It's like Halloween in spring!

Who do I turn to for my spookfest?

Stories - Darcy Coates. Her short scary stories are amazing, and I'll never look at mannequins the same way.

Podcast - Lore by Aaron Mahnke. Because history is stranger than fiction (shiver). I also like Unexplained by Richard MacLean Smith (and he has a warm British voice to make it extra awesome.)

Scary shows - honestly, this one is a hard one for me. I do books and podcasts much more easily than shows, maybe because then I can make it as graphic as I want in my brain. Favorite ominous shows (and you're all gonna laugh cuz I'm a wimp!) Arachnophobia, (please note I love spiders and rescue them all the time, just the creepy crawlies you get while watching is great.) Jaws, (I also love sharks, but I think that the human interactions in this movie are just as scary as the monster.) Watcher in the Woods, (Bette Davis scared me when I was a kid.) And my daughter made me watch Spooky Stories to Tell in the Dark (which freaked me out even though I'm a "grown-up" now as much as the books did when I was a kid.)

Wishing you a Spooooooooky Spring this year!
