Tons of Festivals

The year is almost over. I’ve been so busy and I hope that 2015 brings me at least an equally busy year.


A few weeks ago Burial Day Books was a vendor at the Chicago Ghost Conference . Our table was positioned next to Svengoolie! Unfortunately, Svengoolie was so busy meeting his great fans that I didn’t get a chance to introduce myself. My husband did get this awesome picture with him!





The highlight of my night was a lecture with the amazing Alexandra Holzer. Alexandra Holzer is paranormal research royalty. Her father Hans Holzer wrote over 100 novels on the paranormal and he appeared in multiple television programs even hosting his own. I will post a separate blog on my experience during the lecture. It was a true joy. I wrote so much during that brief time.



Then, last weekend Burial Day Books was a vendor at the Chicago Paranormal Film Festival. I met some great folks there, including the team that runs the Path to Bachelor’s Grove website. If you don’t know what Bachelor’s Grove is…Google it. Seriously. Like, do that right now. I didn’t get to see any of the films during the festival, but I did see the first place film afterwards, Bachelor’s Grove, The Movie directed by Ricardo Islas. If you would like to see it you can find the full film here on YouTube. Support indie horror!



This Saturday, December 6th Burial Day Books will be a vendor at the Chicago Book Expo at Columbia College. If you’re around come on down and visit us!
