“On the first day of Halloween, my true love gave to me…”
Okay. I’m being silly. October is such a fun month, I can get a little giddy.
Starting Friday, October 19th, I’m celebrating 13 Days of Halloween, with treats. The inspiration came from my very good friend (and sometimes debating buddy), researcher Robin Lynn Pyatt Bellamy. She’s been sharing her own 31 days of Halloween. (Obviously, Robin was better prepared for this month than I was. I’m very impressed!)
Every one of those 13 days, I’ll have a fresh, new treat for you.
Most of them will be little treats, with just a few bigger surprises.
Everything will be free… on that day, anyway, so don’t miss a single day. (I’ll post links at Facebook and at Twitter, to remind you. Or, you can subscribe to all of my site updates, in the form on the right side of this page.)
Here’s what I said when I launched this Halloween freebies idea:
Here’s what else you need to know:
When a Kindle book is free, download it immediately. The Kindle books will be free for one day only. The day before and the next day (and every day after that), that book will probably be sold at its usual price. (That’s important, because the book may be available one or two days before the free day. Wait for the free day, unless you absolutely, positively must have the book immediately.)
Note: Now and then, Amazon.com may change the price of my Kindle books. Except for the day (or days) that I say a book must be free, the pricing isn’t fully under my control.
However, some other treats are available one day only, too, so don’t miss a single day. When they’re gone… they’re gone.
On most days, I’ll feature a mini-podcast. That’s a brief chat, about five minutes long, about some aspect of ghost hunting or paranormal research.
Sometimes, I’ll include worksheets or reports. I may make a few videos before the month is over, as well.
I’ll update this page with the links, as they’re available. And, due to Kindle availability issues outside my control, I may shuffle the predicted products, so there’s a fresh treat every day.
These are the freebies…
Friday, 19 Oct – Baseline Yourself for Ghost Hunting – Mini-podcast – Instruction sheets (PDF).
Saturday, 20 Oct - Ghost Hunting – Keeping Tragedy in Context – Mini-podcast – Report (PDF).
Sunday, 21 Oct – Sundays, Rapport, and Unintended Provoking – Mini-podcast – Report (PDF). (You can still listen to the podcast and read the summary, but the PDF was a one-day-only offer.)
Monday, 22 Oct – Evaluating Famous Haunts for Great Ghost Hunting Results – Mini-podcast – Report – Sample Worksheet (PDF).
Tuesday, 23 Oct – Ghosts: What They Are and What They Aren’t - Mini-p0dcast – Free Kindle book (free on Oct 23rd only).
Wednesday, 24 Oct – Ghost Hunting Events – Getting the Most from Them – Mini-podcast – Report – Worksheet (PDF).
Thursday, 25 Oct – Haunted Cemeteries: What to do before your investigation – Podcast – Report – Worksheet (PDF).
Friday, 26 Oct – Ley Lines for Ghost Hunters – An Introduction – Free Kindle book (free on Friday, Oct 26th, only).
Saturday, 27 Oct – Ley Lines for Ghost Hunters – MindMap – Printable mindmap (JPG).
Sunday, 28 Oct – Preparing for Ghost Hunting in Haunted Cemeteries – MindMap – Printable mindmap (JPG).
Pre-loaded before Hurricane Sandy’s arrival, and auto-scheduled to appear, day by day:
Monday, 29 Oct – Everyday Ghost Hunting – Report (PDF) and printable mindmap (JPG).
Tuesday, 30 Oct – Halloween Ghost Hunting Checklist (PDF)
Wednesday, 31 Oct – Walpurgis, the Other Halloween – Report (PDF).
I’ve had fun with this. Sure, it’s been a lot of work, but it’s the kind of work I enjoy.
And, there will be more books (each free for a day) in the coming weeks. The hurricane affected my original plans, so a few scheduled books weren’t completed in time. However, I’m pleased that I could create at least one daily treat for all 13 days.
Happy Halloween! Happy Samhain!
Thank you to everyone who downloaded the free books, shared the link with friends, “liked” the book at Amazon, or left a positive review. With your help, Ghosts – What They Are and What They Aren’t became a #1 best-seller after two days (regular price) plus the free day. My Ley Lines for Ghost Hunters book also became an instant best-seller.
Several other books are near completion and will be released in November and beyond.
Here are some screenshots showing Ley Lines for Ghost Hunters – An Introduction soaring to the top of the charts:
