Is it Halloween yet?? Right behind Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I’ve always been fascinated with ghost stories and the like, and Halloween is all that plus candy, so how can you go wrong?! I can remember in elementary school, the Thirteen Alabama Ghosts and Jeffrey, along with all the other “13 Ghosts” books, were in the back left corner of the library right under the window. I loved reading about spooky stories that took place in my own state. And now, author Greg Starnes has taken this a step farther, with Hollers From The Hollows: Ghost Stories and Spooky Tales From DeKalb County, Alabama. I had the pleasure of taking some head shots of Greg last month for his book, and it’s now available for all you supernatural connoisseurs, such as myself! I’ll be picking up my copy at The Art Nook in Fyffe this week! You can also buy this collection of tales at The Book Shelf and Chamber of Commerce in Fort Payne, Kamama and Mentone Realty in Mentone and the DeSoto State Park country store. If you’re not local, it’s available on Amazon, as well! As someone who’s driven around looking for old cemeteries and ghost towns (yes, we kinda sorta found one!) I am so excited to get my hands on this book! And make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Greg’s next book, A Secessionist Christmas Carol , a Southern take on Charles Dickens’ classic story and check out today’s Times Journal for an interview with Greg! I’ll leave you with a couple photos from Greg’s shoot, and you can find another of my photos on the back cover of the book!
