Just wanted to alert everyone that my new book is now available in paperback. The Ebook version is set to release on the thirteenth of this month.

The paperback version features 176 pages and almost 35 thousand words. The Ebook comes in at around 120 pages.  The book also contains several pictures. The cover artwork was done by Michael Payton. What is interesting about the cover is that the stick structure in the background is from a real structure I found and documented. Michael was able to use the picture and his vision to paint it into the cover art.

The book covers well over twenty common questions, on a wide range of topics, they are answered in a lot of detail about the mysterious creature we call Bigfoot. This book also offers helpful insight to Bigfoot enthusiast, as well as seasoned researchers of all levels. Drawing on my almost thirty years of personal field research, I try to presents the answers in a practical, valid and logical manner. If you are interested in the worldwide phenomenon we call Bigfoot, then this book will aid you in your quest to not only discover Bigfoot but to understand more about them.

Here are links to both versions

Today I want to share with you a children's book written and illustrated by Pete Macomber. The title of the book is What Bigfoot Says. In the book young readers learn the different sounds Bigfoot makes while it lives and plays out in the wild. This book is available for free through the Kindle Unlimited service or $1.99 if you want to purchase a copy for your electronic device. This is a good way to get young people excited about Bigfoot by reading with What Bigfoot Says!

I also want to share a short interview I conducted with Mr. Macomber and share a few pictures from the book.

The Manzo Shepherd Case
“Murder and Mayhem in Bloody Harlan”
Story by  Tony Felosi

The story of Manzo Shepherd and the events that spawned one of the most infamous trials in Harlan County history started on Black Mountain. At 4,145ft it is the tallest peak in Kentucky and one evening in late April 1942, was the location of a brutal murder.

Within one month of the murder of Joe Christian, a taxi cab driver, Shepherd  would be shot in a crowded courtroom of 300 people and his accomplices, Sherman Clouse and Howard Hensley, would both eventually get life sentences to avoid the death penalty.

Shepherd was killed By Jack Heaton nephew of the murder victim who within 9 months would be set free. Here is a short article describing the events in the courtroom when Shepherd was shot.

Kronos Rising: Diablo
A Review By Dorraine Fisher

Max Hawthorne, the author of the famous Kronos Rising series has done it again with his latest book, Kronos Rising: Diablo. A carefully-crafted fiction about the Diablo Caldera, a volcanic island off the coast of Cuba encasing a giant salt-water lake that has long been the secret home of some terrifying monsters of the deep since the Cretaceous Period. But their imprisonment in this secluded lake is about to come to an end, and a nightmare is about to be unleashed into the open ocean.

This time around, in this intended prologue to the series, Max spins another harrowing, action-packed monster tale, painstakingly researched, and rich in scenic and historic detail, while delivering the same true-to-form, page-turning intensity as always. And all this in this comparatively short novella.

If you’re not familiar with the Kronos Rising series, this is a great book to introduce yourself. And if you’re already a fan, this book will fill some gaps in the story line you may have been looking for. Either way, it’s certain to not disappoint. It’ll keep you pinned to your seat and wanting more.

Story Over View -

Brian Kingston, a captain with good intentions but a heavy drinking problem, jumps at the opportunity to make more money than he can imagine on a deep-sea dive aboard the search and rescue submarine, The Betty Loo. He quickly discovers just what he’s gotten himself, and his crew, into. The Betty Loo will be going to suicidal depths on a mission to rescue The Peacemaker, a sub once thought to be unsinkable. After receiving an anonymous threat on the day of departure, Brian is left with no choice but to continue on the mission. 

But the depths of the sea aren’t the only problems ahead. Upon arrival to The Peacemaker, he realizes that though not all the bodies are dead, there is no one to rescue. The crewmembers, both old and new, have to trust one another and fight for their lives against the adapting undead or join them in the floating graveyard that is The Peacemaker.
Review -
Wow! The detail in describing the attacking zombies is second to none. As the zombies snap and rip the flesh of their victims it creates a good visual in your mind.
The author does an excellent job at creating the state of despair and just general creepiness. Romero would be proud. 
What I guess I found most to my liking, other than the zombies, is that you get a good feel for the characters, their background and life issues that got them to their point in the story.
After reading their background, you can understand why some of them live in the shadows and partake of such suicide missions.
Imagine the feeling of being in a submarine full of zombies and under the darkness of the sea. The premise of the story is one of the factors that sets it apart from the crowded zombie field. 
If you like zombies and who don't, this should be a good read for you. The zombie craze has caused a lot of subpar products to be released to the market, I'm happy to say this is well above most of them.

Sharon Day's New book
Strange but true

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines. Get Dorraine's book The Book Of Blackthorne!

More Than Just An Unusual Childhood!!!
Sharon Day’s Book "Growing Up With Ghosts"

Truth really is stranger than fiction. And Sharon Day’s book Growing Up With Ghost surely ranks among the highest for strange but true stories. She chronicles her childhood from her earliest memories of her experiences with ghosts in a house she and her family occupied in Northern Virginia in the 1960’s and 70’s

Most people who’ve had experiences with ghosts in fleeting moments often have trouble processing what they’ve seen because maybe they understand too well what "normal" is supposed to be. But Sharon Day grew up with a different definition of normal, and took it and ran with it. She was a child, not traumatized at all by her experiences, but molded and shaped by the wonder all around her during those years.

In her book, she takes you through the strange journey of her day to day life of this quirky, often bewildering, but only sometimes scary world of spirits and unusual events that unfolded as she grew up in the 250-year-old house with her four siblings.

Growing Up With Ghosts offers a clear picture into what has shaped and molded the author of the popular blog, Ghost Hunting Theories, and what drives her to find answers in her paranormal research to this day. Growing Up With Ghosts is a great tribute to that and well worth the read for ghosts lovers or anyone else looking for entertaining reading. I highly recommend it. It won’t disappoint. *********DF

Face To Face With A Legend
Behind The Creation of J.M. Bailey’s "Eve"

TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.

Have you ever wondered what’s behind the creation of a good story? Where it came from and what it took to breathe life into it? I’ve seen quite a few stories about bigfoot or bigfoot-type creatures, and I was disappointed nearly every time. They were mostly just horror stories about a creature on a killing spree. A monster of folklore. Not the sasquatch we’ve come to understand and love through research and observance.

So when I read "Eve" by J.M. Bailey I was awestruck. Finally a story that presented a little magic and wonder to the idea of our hairy friends. No evil monsters here. Just something closer to what we all believe them to be: peaceful, tolerant, and possibly possessing a sense of "humanity." In this story, set in the wilderness of northern California, the main character, Anna, finds herself stranded in a remote area of the mountains. And as she struggles with her survival situation of washed out roads from torrential rains, she comes up against a legend she’d always imagined, but never dared to think she would ever see.
Samuel Sasquatch by Anthony Paolucci
Samuel Sasquatch
written by
Anthony Paolucci
I received this book a couple weeks ago and finally got some free time to read it. I enjoyed the book, even though it is directed towards children, it was still entertaining for me.
You get a glimpse of the mischievous and adventurous behavior of a young sasquatch named Samuel. Samuel finds many humans to attempt to interact with but most run away in fear but he does not give up. Samuel has a goal to make some human friends so he keeps trying.

The book has a very touching ending that is sure to tug at your heart strings just a little. 
Samuel Sasquatch is relatively a short book clocking in at only 28 total pages, including art work, but the art work is well done and compliments the story nicely.

So I would recommend this book if you have kids or just want a quick enjoyable read for yourself.
It is a hardcover book so it is sure to last for years and could be passed on to grand kids. It would also make a great bedtime read for you and your children.

Stranded In The Company of A Legend?
J.M. Bailey’s "Eve" Is A Winner

Book Review by TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher 

I’m always on the hunt for stories about sasquatches that have a little bit different spin and flavor.

I’m often not too enchanted with bigfoot movies that portray them as being evil monsters on the hunt for humans to kill or eat.

So I was more than happy to read Eve by J.M. Bailey. This bigfoot story is, if you’re a believer, one that’s great to imagine could happen to any one of us. A young woman, Anna, decides to go hiking in the Northern California wilderness in the more volatile weather season only to have her access road be washed out by rain. Stranded miles from civilization, she’s faced with a difficult dilemma of survival when she suddenly notices an odd "tree stump" in the distance and the "most rancid, curdling stench" she could ever imagine.

Could it be?

Yes, it is. Eve is one of the more idyllic bigfoot stories in its very charm and scope, and lends a soft side to our hairy friends that many of us can relate to. And it serves as a reminder to revere and respect nature and all those things we don’t understand. As Anna experiences such horrors like being pursued by a giant male and the wonder of human-like compassion from "Eve", this story chronicles a young woman’s journey of discovery. She vows to learn as much as she can about these creatures as she knows they could, at any moment, disappear into the forest forever like legends often do.

I recommend this book to anyone who believes. But I would not recommend it for young children due to some adult language content.

All in all, I found it to be a beautiful story, fast-paced and full of insight. Definitely a winner. ******DF

Horror or Hoax ?
The Big Hoax of the Amityville Horror!
By TCC Team Memeber Dorraine Fisher
            The Amityville Horror, starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder back in 1979 was one of the most famous cult-classic horror movies of all time. It was based on the best selling book by Jay Anson, The Amityville Horror: A True Story that had been published in 1977.  And that was the main reason movie-watchers flocked to theaters in droves to see the film. It was said to have been based on a true story of a house haunted by demonic spirits in Amityville, New York after six people had been brutally murdered there.
            On November 13, 1974 Ronald and Louise DeFeo and their two sons and two daughters were shot to death in their beds in the house at 112 Ocean Ave. After their one surviving son, Ronald Jr. (Butch) DeFeo was arrested, convicted of the crime, and sent to prison, the house was put up for sale.
George & Kathy Lutz in the late 1970’s

            In 1975, George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into the house. But not long afterward, they claimed some horrifying things took place there. Icky green slime oozed from the ceilings, an unidentified force ripped doors from their hinges and slammed cabinet doors, they were attacked by a swarm of insects,  and a demonic face with glowing red eyes looked into their windows at night and left cloven hoof prints in the fresh snow.
            In an attempt to stop the activity, it was said a priest was called in to bless the house only to find himself with painful blisters on his hands. He promptly left after being told by a demonic voice to “Get out!”
            A local TV crew reported the strange goings on in the house. Numerous ghost hunters and psychics were called in and all came to the conclusion the house was possessed by some kind of demons and that only an exorcism could solve the problem.
            The Lutzes promptly left the house and helped Anson with the details as he wrote his book.
  Many people doubted the story, though Anson and the group still presented it as truth. 
            But as time passed too many holes were found in the story and larger questions were raised. It seems with all the horrific activity that supposedly took place in the house during that time, the police were never called. And when a researcher Rick Moran checked into the story about the demon peering through the windows and leaving hoof prints in the snow, it seems there had been no snowfall reported at that time. He found this along with nearly a hundred other discrepancies and inconsistencies. Moran  also questioned Father Pecoraro, who had blessed the house, and he claimed he never saw anything unusual in the house.
            And in spite of all this, the Lutzes stuck to their story as they collected large sums of money from from their rights to the film and book.
            But it all finally unraveled when Butch Dafeo’s lawyer, William Weber, confessed that he and the Lutzes had created the tall tale together. Weber had made up the story in order to get a new trial for Dafeo while the Lutzes continued to reap the monetary benefits. But none of the reported events ever took place. George Lutz still maintains the story was mostly true but has never presented evidence to prove it.
The so-called paranormal experts and psychics who had validated the story ended up embarrassed and humiliated by their determinations.  And to this day, many people still don’t know it was all a big hoax. *******
