  1. When I was a child my friend and I saw my great grandfather (as a ghost) sitting in his favorite chair.

      Oh, I bet that was an interesting sight. I hope you were not scared. I bet he came back for a visit to say hello.

    1. Nancy,

      Thanks so much, Schiffer did a great job on it. We were going for a eye-catching cover. Some of these locations gave us just that. My favorite is the train in the graveyard. The others are Exchange Hotel, Michie Tavern, Tuckahoe Plantation, Oakland Cemetery in Louisa, and the front gate to Jerdon's Castle.

  11. I've never seen ghosts, but have been to haunted mansions and know people who swear they saw a ghost. I enjoy ghost stories and others that give the flavor of traditions passed down from generations. Like the game of Telephone, everybody adds their own twists to jazz up the tale. Some of the tales are pretty tall, like stories about fish and the big one that got away.

  12. I love the cover- and I'm intrigued by everything paranormal. I once saw a spirit in Charleston, SC but didn't realize it at the time- until discussing it later and found out nobody else in the group had seen him. It leaves a definite imprint on your psyche.
