Running late as I was traveling across three states today. And now my laptop can't access my wordpress blog (and the reset password link isn't working so my dreamwidth account it is)


Still working on These Haunted HIlls I've dragged some ghost hunting books on my area along with me on the trip. Fun research! Speaking of research I did skip over Josh telling Brendan about the history of the hospital though it did lead into them talking about Brendan coming out to his fans which is where the snippet picks up.

“I can’t imagine coming out to an audience of millions.” Joshua rubbed his arms, chasing away a sudden chill. “Hell, it took me three years to come out to my parents.”

“Were they okay with it, if that’s not prying?”

Joshua wave him off as he topped the curb, leaving grass behind for the cracked asphalt of the parking lot. “They heard me angsting about it on the phone with Travis. I woke up the next day to find a new starship Enterprise on the kitchen table with a note from Dad saying they’ve known for some time I was gay, that they loved me, and that they thought Travis, my boyfriend at the time, was cute. My parents are pretty awesome.”

I know I owe comments from last week. My internet has been hooking up at .09 mbps so welcome 1998. I can't load much of anything. I'm back up to a full .6 mbps today (when it's actually on) so hopefully I can do better! (But no accompanying picture today because there's no prayer of even loading the page let alone uploading anything).

I'm still working with These Haunted Hills. I've skipped ahead just a little to the next chapter where Joshua takes Brendan to the Ridges (the Athens Lunatic Asylum) to talk ghosts. It's a tad over six sentences (I think it's 8, just like last week.) This time they're out of the graveyard and going up to the asylum itself.



"We have a vague pentagram of cemeteries in Athens. You might want to Goggle the spiritualist movement origins of the city. I could take you up to the weeping angel statue, right up from that coffee shop we were in, but she’s not the cool Dr. Who kind of angel.”

Brendan chuckled. “You are such a geek.”

“As advertised.” Joshua thumped his chest.

“I’ll be happy she’s not a Whovian angel. I’m not up for quantum locked villains on our first day.”

“I’m definitely not the only geek climbing this hill.”

“No, you are not.” Brendan shielded his eyes against the afternoon sun. “This place is huge. I can’t imagine being locked up here.”

Missed last week because I was at the steampunk symposium in a hotel with the world's most unreliable internet and then went right into finals week so I wouldn't have had time to read anyone's. Technically I'm at graduation today but I'll have the rest of the week to read.

I'm still working with These Haunted Hills. I've skipped ahead just a little to the next chapter where Joshua takes Brendan to the Ridges (the Athens Lunatic Asylum) to talk ghosts. It's a tad over six sentences (I think it's 8)

Brendan stared at his feet, toes near a cracked, small boxy headstone bearing only a number. “They didn’t even give them names, not even in death.”

Joshua swallowed hard. He hadn’t planned to bring Brendan to the Ridges’s cemetery when he drove the man up to the old asylum. He didn’t want to stir up shit memories for the man. Coffee at the Donkey cafe had gone well. Brendan didn’t fuss at all as Joshua helped him put the sites he most wanted to see in a logical order for them to attack them. Better yet, once he’d settled down and realized Joshua truly wasn’t going to fanboy all over him, Brendan chatted with him like they’d been buddies for years. He didn’t want to lose that. “No, there are records somewhere with the names but no one came to claim these poor people.”



This is from the above mentioned graveyard. You can see the numbered headstone in the back (though Margaret's family at least gave her a named stone too). I pulled the freaking corn out of the grave before I left her.

Still continuing with These Haunted Hills. And happy Earth Day!

The snippet begins with Brendan laying out his plans for his ghost hunting trip.



“I had more thoughts on what I’d mot like to see beside Crooked Pines. You can decide how best to tackle them and if it’s worth trying.”

“Sure. Actually, if you want, we can drive into Athens. I can show you the Ridges which is a must-see and we can grab lunch or a coffee and sit down with your list.”

“That sounds good. Have to admit, I’m a night owl. When you said to meet here so early I was aghast,” Brendan chuckled.

Joshua snorted. “Not my idea either. Blame the scout masters.



Here is a shot of an upcoming scene where they're at the Ridges cemetery (yes these are tombstones for the patients of the Ridges (actual name Athens Lunatic Asylum)). They are unmarked except for a number which in theory matches up with a name in the files.

Still continuing with These Haunted Hills, still not writing nearly enough for Camp Nano. Sigh. This picks up after Brendan shows disbelief that the ghost haunting the cave is that of a 1920s lady (and that is the real haunting ascribed to the area and Joshua's answer below is about as best we have as far as answers are concerned. (and sorry I think it's 8 sentences today, is bad).


“I agree though this was a popular place at the turn of the century with various lodges and small hotels in the region like the one we’ll investigate. There was even a small town near here but it's long gone. While many night time hikes have reported seeing the lady, even ones not here specifically to ghost hunt, I’ve not see her nor have I found any records of anyone dying here.”

“Do you always look into the records for the haunted you investigative?”

“Yes, I’m first and foremost a scientist. I like collaborating evidence. Here at Ash Cave the best I can do is say it’s highly likely to have seen some death, but none I can document. I do have some evps I can let you hear.”

Brendan straightened, eyes bright. “Really? I’d love that.”




Here's a little proof of the long term activity in the area. Some of these date back to the early 1800s but the one here is turn of the last century. For some reason we feel the need to carve our names into everything.

Still continuing with These Haunted Hills which I've not been having as much time for in Camp Nano as I would like (both camp and nano end up in the all-time worst months for professors). It picks up where we left off last week where Josh outs himself to Brendan (almost immediately and much to his chagrin. Well he IS nervous about meeting one of his idols).



Glossing over my runaway mouth, back to Ash cave which got its name for all the mounds of ash found here, we think it was from the long term use by the Native Americans, probably the Shawnee or Wyandotte. But it was used by White settlers, too and even as a pulpit. So there is some interesting history here.”

“Is the haunting one of the Shawnee?”

“There have been a few evps that might suggest that but the ghost most commonly seen here is a woman who looks like she’s from the 1920s.”

‘Really? A lady in twenties garb?”



And here, Ash cave from the far rim.  photo DSCN0082_zpsfq1vt3em.jpg

I think I still owe some comments from last week. Sigh. It's the last month of the semester which always turns into insanity and Camp Nano starts today! I will be working on this story for it (in part, I have two projects).

I'm sticking with These Haunted Hills and Brendan has just asked Josh to tell him about Ash Cave. It's slightly over 6 sentences but they're short and I wanted it to make sense....


"The cave is about seven hundred feet long and about a hundred deep. The waterfall cascading around us is from the east fork of Queer Creek.”

Brendan arched one of his eyebrows. “Really?”

Joshua shrugged. “Didn’t name it and I’m sure it means the strange sort of queer, not the me kind.” His face flamed. “Did I say that out loud?”

“You did.”



And here you go, Queer Creek spilling over the rim of Ash Cave.

Doing this on the fly today, just back from the Ohio Academy of Science: Science Fair (as a judge) and zooming off to a friend's play.

I'm sticking with These Haunted Hills This takes place directly after Brendan got a little uptight about being fan boyed over and Joshua assured him there would be no overt fanboying.


Tension relaxed in Brendan’s bearded jaw. “Thanks. I would love to go on a ghost hunt if you can arrange that.”

“Definitely. We can take you to a couple of places, the Moonville tunnel and of course the Crooked Pine hotel because that’s where we’ll be concentrating our efforts. I think it’s perfect for what you’re describing as the plot of your novel.”

“Excellent. So tell me more about Ash Cave.”


And here is inside the Moonville tunnel, some 'street art' of one of the ghosts that supposedly haunts the tunnel (she was killed by the train that ran thru the tunnel. I took this one on my own ghost hunt here. BTW, the hotel which will end up the haunted focus of the story, however, doesn't exist in the real world).

I'm continuing with These Haunted Hills. This is picking up where last week left off with the bit of tension as Brendan realizes Josh is one of his fan boys. Also Josh's ghost hunting partner is in need of a name which is why she's still just () in the text!




"I was thinking that after this we can go somewhere, maybe grab something to eat or drink and go over possible places and the best way to go about viewing them. Also if you want to go on a ghost hunt with me and my team mate, that can be arranged but I warn you, () is a fan girl too. She’ll behave herself though.”

“I’ll hold you to that.”

The mirthless quality to those words created a shiver along Joshua’s skin

I'm continuing with These Haunted Hills. I skipped a little bit here where Brendan realizes Joshua has recognized him and Joshua was telling him his students were around (Mostly because I need to ask my friend who is the naturalist there if students are allowed to do research in this area. I might have to change that part). It's slightly over 6 sentences but they're short and I wanted it to make sense. It begins just after Joshua being nervous that he's upset Brendan because he's recognized him.


“I’m used to being recognized. You haven’t acted like an obnoxious fan boy who thinks he owns me so we’re good.” Brendan’s gaze swept over Josh, lines tightening around his eyes. “Are you though?”

“What? A fan boy? Yes actually.” Josh smiled. He wasn’t going to lie to his man. “I love your books but you hired me and I owe it to you be professional.

As I'm rushing about to leave on Spring Break (Really? ALREADY?) I won't be putting up any pictures of the Haunted Hocking Hills this time and I probably won't get to anyone's post until much later (heck this might be late depending on when the thread goes up). I'm continuing this right from where it left off last time with Brendan and Joshua getting introduced to each other.




“Dr. Zimmerman?”

Joshua already knew Halloran had one of those deep James Earl Jones voices but hearing it here when it was just them and not a crowd of fans made Josh’s knees go wobbly. Joshua held out his hand. “Mr. Halloran. I’m glad you found your way out here.”

His lips twitched slightly, almost smiling as he shook hands. “The trail is paved the whole way so even a city dweller like me won’t get lost.” He turned to look at the water rushing over the lip of the fall. “It’s quite beautiful. It’s hard to believe this much wilderness exists to close to Columbus. It’s little more than an hour from where I live, and yet I was barely aware this was here.”

Since it was freakishly hot yesterday, I hiked out to Ash Cave myself where chapter two of These Haunted Hills is set. So did everyone else in SE Ohio apparently. Still a nice time to decompression and get in touch with nature. I'm picking right up from where I left off last week where Joshua's inner monologue clued us in as to why Halloran is so depressed and is hoping that Halloran's son's death isn't the reason the man is reaching out to ghost hunters. (also I'm going to have to change Christian's name as it's too close to Kristen, his mother. Granted people do that in life all the time but I wonder if it'll be confusing in print).

So have a pic of me going into the cave area.  photo DSCN0042_zpsp5lojaoa.jpg

And if you want to see even more pictures from yesterday head here.

And oh, the snippet ran a couple sentences long just to finish out the thought...


Joshua knew psychic mediums. One ran across them in the ghost hunting business but he wasn’t one and definitely didn’t want to have to get into that with one of his idols. Still, Halloran had asked to see the haunts of the hills rather than invite Joshua to ghost hunt in his Dublin home. It had to be for a new series, right?

As Halloran closed the distance between him, he took off his sunglasses acknowledging the shade the evergreens provided the area. His eyes were blue, a blue Joshua had wondered if they were contact-enhanced when he first seen it on B.A. Halloran’s various online hangouts. Now, up close, they looked real. Sure they could still be contacts but somehow he didn’t think that a man in Halloran’s position would bother. Joshua’s mind flashed to the Abney Park song Rosie and Max. Max’s description worked for Halloran.

I'll be in and out this weekend so I might be slow to comment. I'm trying to get some of the jewelry making I have waiting on me done. It's insane the sheer amount of beads and crap I have so I'm going to a crafting party because I obviously need supervision in order for me to finish things.

I'm continuing with Joshua's point of view where we learn key things about Brendan I didn't have in Brendan's point of view (but explain why Brendan is so depressed). I'm ahead of myself with the picture. They'll be heading here, the Ridges, the Athens Lunatic Asylum (the original name). It's a beautiful, very haunted asylum that originally wanted to be a a nurturing place to help the mentally ill (but you can guess that's not what ended up happening). It's now the art gallery for Ohio University. There's a crap ton on the hauntings online if you're curious. I head over here often.

 photo IMG_3332_zps8u3pinke.jpg



We're picking up immediately after Joshua sees Brendan waiting on him to finish with the Girl Scouts at Ash Cave.


Now that Halloran was here, Joshua found he couldn’t close the distance between them. After several emails setting up times and places to go ghost hunting, Joshua had enough clues to suspect Brendan Halloran was B. A. Halloran, author of one of his favorite YA fantasy series. An unrepentant geek, he would be lying if he said that realization played no role in accepting this job. He had spent more hours drawing fan art of Kiyomi Fujita and John Archer than he wanted to think about, no regrets though.

However, knowing what Halloran had been through in the last few years made him nervous about meeting the man and even more nervous about why he wanted to go ghost hunting. Was it really for a new series or was he trying to contact little Christian. Joshua had no idea what losing a child would do to the soul, didn’t even want to imagine it.

I'm sitting here moving slow as the weather keeps bouncing from 60 to 20 degrees and the arthritis isn't impressed. It's supposed to be 60 today so I might haul myself out of here and go hiking in the area I've been posting about for the last few weeks. This week we're still in These Haunted Hills but I've moved ahead to ch 2 so we can meet Dr. Joshua Zimmerman (whose doctorate is in ecology), ghost hunter, steampunker, geek. We meet him just after he finishes a talk to a bunch of girl scouts as a favor to the naturalist who works in the park. As it so happens the unnamed (in the story) naturalist is my friend and partial inspiration for Josh. I've borrowed his website for Josh. If you'd like to see the real website, head here. Haunted Hocking Most of the action will be set in Jackson, Vinton, Meigs and Athens county. I live in Jackson. And if you're poking around the site thinking hmmmm that's a lot of dirt roads, you're right. I live where pavement isn't really a thing.

And oh this area Stroud's Run State Park is what got me thinking about this story originally. There is a haunted cabin in the park (Athens county if you want to look up the story).

 photo stroud_zps7yepga2x.jpg


So let's meet Josh.



As the girls were herded down the trail, Joshua spotted a couple other hikers inspecting Ash cave. One man watched the water splashing down over the lip of the shelter cave. A Star Trek ball cap in science blue shielded much of his face. Sunglasses and well-kempt beard in deep walnut completed the obfuscation of his features, and yet Joshua knew who he was but only because he was expecting Brendan Halloran. He’d asked the author to meet him here because he thought that if Halloran was going to write a book set in the area he should see some of its most beautiful parts. Halloran wanted ghosts, and Ash Cave could provide those.

It's been another long week of not getting nearly enough writing done but at least I made a wee bit of progress but not much on These Haunted Hills. I'll be picking up right where I left off last week but I think next week I'll jump a little ahead to Joshua.

But first another picture of Brendan's first destination in the Hocking Hills, Ash Cave.
 photo hocking-hills-state-park_zpsvsrkevlg.jpg



We're picking up with Brendan going to the titular website to check out local haunted locales and the man who runs the ghost hunting site. I went a couple lines over this time because it helped firm up who Brendan is and why he's in a lonely cabin in the woods.

Brendan brought up the These Haunted Hills website to see what he should look at first. Dr. Joshua Zimmerman’s picture was in the upper corner. One sign that Brendan wasn’t completely dead inside was how cute he thought Joshua was. Almost too boyish to be believable as an accomplished PhD. teaching ecology at a local university, his picture looked more like he was an undergrad. It could be an old one or that bright smile belied the amount of years behind it.

What Brendan wanted to see most was Crooked Pines, a former lodge that was now abandoned and theoretically too haunted to be reclaimed. There was a story in that, Brendan needed to dig it out. His agent still wasn’t sold on him writing a more adult ghost story but it had been three years since the end of his young adult series. He’d written nothing, though the adventures of Selena and Will had generated more than enough money to live his life out a couple times over.

I'm still sharing from There Haunted Hills. I'd better get back to writing it! I'm struggling to write anything right now. I have a rough semester this time out and by the time I get home and do all the work I have to do, I'm too tired to write. Sigh.

This picture is jumping ahead a little to where Brendan will first meet Joshua. This is Ash cave in the Hocking Hills, near Logan, Ohio.

 photo ash-cave-hocking-hills-state-park_zps4vzoxcjh.jpg

The snippet continues directly from when he got his coffee and has sat down on the futon to try and settle in (and it finally hints as to why he's in this cabin in the woods, other than as a potential site to commit suicide in).

Flipping on the TV, he reassured himself there was actually a functioning satellite and ditto the wifi for the computer so there wouldn’t be some Overlook-The Shining isolation driven craziness going on. Brendan powered up his computer, wondering if he should remove the paperweight of a galaxy he had as a wallpaper. Kristen had shared her opinions on it the last time she had seen him, and they had been as negative as they had been loud. He pushed it from his mind. He checked his emails, let Kristen know he’d made it safety. He saw no emails from his agent, his best friend Jonathan nor the man who he’d hired to show him around to the haunted sites in the Hocking Hills and the surrounding towns.

I'm continuing with These Haunted Hills even though the work on it is STILL very slow.

This is Queer Creek (no, really) that wends its way around the Hocking Hills and is part of the various small waterfalls.

We're still with Brendan this week (Maybe next week I'll fast forward to Joshua's pov). This snippet is directly after last week's and it showcases Brendan's mental state at the start of the story.


Brendan could see giving in to the grief in a quiet place like this. They wouldn’t know until his month’s worth of rent was up. He shuddered and forced himself away from the window. He busied himself with unpacking. He braved the lashing rain to grab his computer bag and three canvas bags of groceries out of the car. His mood lifted to an inch above the floor once he filled the cabin with the scent of coffee.

I'm continuing with These Haunted Hills even though the work on it has been very slow (as I've been working on edits for a vampire thing which I might start sharing again as I really need fresh eyes on it).

Brendan is bisexual which will be known by the second chapter. I'm using Tom Mison (from Sleepy Hollow) as body/face inspiration for Brendan though I'm not sure yet if his hair is shorter or longer.

 photo tom_zpsyktii0h8.jpg

This takes place directly after last week's snippet and I ran over 2 sentences so the thought is completed (as a reminder, Brendan has come to the Hocking Hills and is renting a cabin for a month).


He peered out one rain streaked window. All he could see were trees, mostly pines with something that was covered in blooms, dogwood maybe. The green isolation he’d chased after surrounded him. Those second thoughts skyrocketed. Kristen hadn’t wanted him to come. She didn’t trust him alone. Brendan knew his ex had reason to worry. Both of them were mired in grief and three years hadn’t moved them past it.

For the first snippet of the new year I'm doing something I've never done: sharing something brand new in its raw form. Literally I have only about six paragraphs of this one but its one of the projects I want to finish this year, something close to contemporary. Okay there are ghost hunters in it but done in a realistic way (okay, one of the leads (not in this snippet) is based very loosely on a friend here who is in fact a ghost hunter). It's called at the moment These Haunted Hills and is set where I live in Appalachian Ohio, the Hocking Hills (technically I live a bit south west of here but I can be here within the hour). Brendan is a man whose been through a lot and is an author of a popular middle grade/YA series whose come to the hills to investigate ghosts for his next, more adult novel but more important, he's running from his problems.

This is what I had in mind for the cabin in the snippet. This is from Crooked Creek Cabin rentals which is in the area.

 photo hocking cabin_zps1dzi8fdc.jpg




Brendan second guessed his decision the moment he walked through the cabin’s front door even though it was exactly what he wanted: a cabin in the woods. The cold spring deluge that lashed him from car to porch hadn’t helped matters much. To Brendan the shower embodied perfectly the condition of his mind and soul.

Leaving his bag on the doorstep, Brendan took in his home for the next month. It could almost be called cute in a rustic sort of way. The loft bedroom perched above the open concept living area and kitchen.

Happy new year's everyone. I'm trying to be hopeful that 2017 will be a better year but the logical side of me says, fat chance.

I found a little bit of the New Year's celebration from Soldiers of the Sun for today (and it gives me a little leeway as I've been doing a lot of my holiday writing for friends and not working on anything new per se).

It's the first mission for the demon hunters, Caleb Agni and Temple (all three are lovers) and Temple's newest partners in the Soldiers of the Sun, Jo. They're protecting a New Year's eve party (in the 1930s) from demons.

Caleb pulled out his pocket watch. “If nothing else there’s only an hour until the New Year. The party probably won’t last much longer than that.”

“I hate dress shoes,” Agni said, wriggling his foot at Caleb in emphasis. “The party has already lasted too long.”

“This is why Temple calls you grumpy.”

“He does that to irritate me because he enjoys it. I could have thought of many far more enjoyable ways to ring in the New Year than this.” Agni’s expression clued Caleb in to what he had in mind. Given his partner’s extensive knowledge of certain sexual texts from India, Caleb felt very sad to be on duty at this moment.

BlurbCaleb Davies and Agni Pradesh are worried about their teammate and lover, Temple Chevalier. Not only has he lost his long-time partner, Fu Li, but he nearly died fighting a demon himself. Also, Temple isn’t sure he’s ready for a new teammate after Li. Caleb and Agni are even more concerned that their three-way relationship with Temple exists less because he loves them and more because he’s hiding from the pain of Li’s loss.
1932 shapes up to be a terrible year for the Soldiers as they welcome the New Year fighting demons and then end up investigating a case that pairs them up with the Knights Templar. This would normally be a good thing, but it forces Temple to face his painful past. Worse yet, the case leads right to Astaroth, a Prince of Hell, who might prove to be an unbeatable foe.
