I think this time I'm the first one to comment and I don't have much to say, except I'm reading Forever Never Ends--REALLY COOL! I wish Creative Spirit was available in the U.S.
Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!

The video looks interesting - unfortunately something seems to be wrong with the sound-card in my computer, so I didn't actually hear any of it, which of course it makes it intriguing.

Rad Hall said...

You know, I wasn't quite sure that the ghost at the end was of eldritch means ... but then the floating stick just sealed the deal right there :)

Creepy manor--- was the fog on purpose or is my monitor doing creepy things?! happy thanskgiving! i.pearson@comcast.net

Monster A Go-Go said...

Effrin Corbin's ghost??? Hmmm... That ghost looked awfully familiar. That ghost was in at least one or two other videos of yours. If that's Effrin, he must be really down on his luck to have be your own personal trained spook.

I wonder if there a goat ghosts? Do you know??? They'd be called ghoats, right?

Why am I up so early---on Thanksgiving? UGH! Ignore me...and have a spirited Thanksgiving! CHEERS!

happy Thanksgiving to all of Scott's followers!!

Isn't that ghost under contract to Stephen King? Some kinda' shady ghostwriting conflict of interest going on here.

I enjoyed the video and getting to see the manor that starred in your book -- and I can't wait until you get the green light to release it in the US -- but I was mostly impressed by the fun that you seem to be having.

As a blogger myself, I've been toying with the idea of investing in some equipment and making some videos of my own for my own blog about Horror Books. But I've shied away from the idea because I don't look at it as fun.

Hummm, something to think about.

Thanks for the contest,

Sharon, the fog is chronic there! Saved me having to rent a machine...

Greg, I have a degree in production but ended up deciding writing was easier than dealing with all the wires. Even a short, non-professional video like this one can take several hours.

Thanks for entering, everyone, good luck on the giveaways that are coming up soon!

@sally jo, it's not really marketing--I am playing. You can't take all this junk seriously!

Don't forget to hit those last few stops before deadline.
