Hallowfields Ghost Hunting Academy

Hallowfields Ghost Hunting Academy is my newest website. I’ve been working on this project since mid-2017.

HallowfieldsThe concept is simple: It’s an educational site for paranormal researchers, with entirely free courses.

Initially, I’d planned a generic name: Ghost Hunting Academy. One of my publishers secured that URL for me, and we set up a basic website.

Then I realized the name was too generic. It could be forgotten easily, orĀ  confused with similar names like “ghost hunting school,” and so on.

After a few weeks’ thought, the name Hallowfields sounded good to me. It’s a little of Halloween, mixed with fields of paranormal study.

I decided to launch the site shortly before Christmas/Yule, and settled on today – December 15th – for the opening of the site. (It sounded good at the time.)

Well… it looks like I was a little too optimistic about the work involved. But, I launched the site today, anyway.

Full moonThe text for the first course, the 2017 edition of Introduction to Ghost Hunting, is complete and at the Hallowfields site.

The course has many new, free downloads – mostly worksheets – as well.

So, students can start the course immediately, and complete it. They’ll even receive a printable certificate/diploma at the conclusion.

But, that course doesn’t have all the bells & whistles I’ve envisioned. In fact, I’m currently working on videos to supplement it.

Those videos will probably start arriving at the website next week.

A software glitch delayed today’s video recording. But, I finally found the problem. Now, the first video – a very short one – is in the first lesson of the course. It’s a start. I’m feeling victorious.

I’ll add more free worksheets in the next couple of weeks, too.

At the start of 2018, I’ll be juggling books – mostly updates/revisions of my older books – and adding more articles and videos at HollowHill.com. I’ll create more courses for Hallowfields, and… I’m still not sure what I’m doing with the Mandela Effect site.

Mostly, I’m excited about the coming year, as I look ahead to 2018. I have the feeling it’s going to be a fun year.

I hope you’re enjoying a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, and a joyous… well, whichever holiday/s (if any) you celebrate at this time of year.

New Freebies Are Here

GhostbatFor Halloween, I hope to update all of my freebies. They include reports, checklists, and worksheets for ghost hunters. I’ve also updated some of my fun handouts from past Dragon Con presentations.

Most of them are ready now, and the files are at Google Drive. Anyone can download these freebies, so it’s okay to share those links with friends.

The list of 2017 freebies (with links) is at this site, on my Free Downloads page.

The same list is at Hollow Hill, as well, at http://hollowhill.com/downloads/

I’ll continue working on the remaining updates, plus some new freebies for this year. (Most of those won’t be available until late October 2017, because I’m also updating some of my books. And giving media interviews. And investigating more haunts. Yes, it’s a busy time of year, and tremendous fun!)
