13 O’Clock Episode 20 – Hauntings and Poltergeists with Parapsychologist Steve Mera

Happy 2017! On this first episode of the new year, Tom and Jenny have a very special guest, parapsychologist Steve Mera. Steve has been in the field for more than 30 years and has investigated hundreds of paranormal cases. Jenny even co-authored two books with him about two of his most fascinating investigations, The Rochdale Poltergeist and House of Fire and Whispers: Investigating the Seattle Demon House. On this episode, he talks about both those cases, as well as his career in the paranormal in general, including the differences between poltergeist infestations and hauntings, and what he thinks of popular “ghost hunting” shows. Tune in and enjoy the science behind the spooky.

If You Missed Us on End of Days Radio, Here’s Your Chance to Catch Up!

This past Saturday night, the God of Hellfire and I were guests on a “couples night” edition of End of Days Radio, which also featured husband-and-wife demonologists Kenneth and Farah Rose Deel. You can listen to the whole thing if you want, or you can start at about two hours and twenty minutes in, when our part gets rolling. Not only do we talk about poltergeists, but we also answer some personal questions about our relationship, if you’re into that kind of thing, or are nosy about how we got together. Heh. Enjoy!

Listen for the Sound of Your Master’s Voice: Audiobook News!

So, we had a very productive weekend, thank you very much for asking. Our dear friends Demetrios Pappas (aka DJ Lavidicus of Memento Mori at Independent Bar Orlando) and his lovely wife Jen Draven (of 13th Angel) spent many, many hours at the Hellfire household, enjoying the GoH’s stellar Indian cuisine and recording me reading both The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist and my upcoming magnum opus, House of Fire and Whispers. Both books will be available as audio books in fairly short order, and an audio book of The Rochdale Poltergeist is also on the agenda in the very near future. Gotta say, I had never recorded an audio book before, and I now have nothing but undying respect for folks who do nothing but voice work for a living, because DAMN, it’s way harder than it looks. Much honey tea was consumed, much swearing and mispronunciation was edited out, but in the end, we got two books knocked out over two days. Now all that has to be done is final editing and mastering, and we’ll be good to go. So if you ever wanted to read my paranormal books without actually having to read them, then just sit tight, because soon you’ll be able to listen to my mellifluous tones reading aloud to you in the privacy of your own home/crawlspace/bunker/man-cave.

Oh, and I also recorded an interview about my new book with Aaron Hunter of the Real Paranormal Activity podcast, which will air at 10pm EST on Monday, August 8th, so please listen in! I will post another link closer to the day of the show.

Thank you, and keep it creepy, my friends.

Poltergeists, Panties, and Plasma, Oh My

Just a brief update here with some new links and upcoming goodies, just so you know the Goddess is still around and working!

First up, I’m sure you will remember the book I published not so long ago with parapsychologist Steve Mera, The Rochdale Poltergeist. Well, as a result of that book, Steve was summoned to work on an even stranger case right here in the US of A, the controversial Keith Linder “Demons in Seattle” case! Steve and his collaborator Don Phillips have been to the house and gathered lots and lots of data, and are in the process of making an episode of their UK TV show, “The Phenomena Project,” about what they discovered. More germane to this blog is the fact that Steve and I are collaborating on another book about this newer case! Its working title is House of Fire and Whispers: Investigating the Seattle Demon House, and it’s still in the interview/outline stage at the moment, but we’re trying to get it out in the next few months, while interest in the case is still high. More news as the book progresses! In the meantime, here is a short video giving an overview of the mysterious happenings:

I’m also still working on the erotica stories for my Panty Party Publishing arm; I haven’t been able to put up as many as I’d like lately because of other competing projects, but I have one story called “Island of the Satyrs” almost finished and ready to roll, and a third installment of the Little Dick Superpower series is also in the pipeline. Keep your pervy eyeballs peeled!

If any of you are going to be out and about in the Tampa, Florida area this coming weekend, why not stop by the Endless Night Vampire Ball at storied goth landmark The Castle? Tickets are $18 apiece, doors open on Saturday night at 10pm and it promises to be a grand time. I will be in attendance in all of my vampiric finery, accompanied of course by the GoH, and also by our dear friends DJ Lavidicus of Memento Mori fame, and his lovely wife Jen Draven, of 13th Angel fame. Vamp on up and say hello if you’re in the neighborhood!

And that’s all the news that’s fit to blog at the moment. Until next time, keep it creepy, my friends.
