Okay, I promise I’m not stepping into Deborah LeBlanc’s territory. I do have a point, and it’s not really ghosts, so bear with me. Yesterday morning I was driving to work, in the early a.m., and listening to my favorite morning radio show, 97.1 zht, the Morning Zoo, with Frankie, DB and Jessica. I have been a guest on their show several times, and so I feel a “kinship” to them. And I think they are funny, too. On this particular show, though, they were talking about a picture they were going to post to the Web site. In it, a little girl is shown freaking out, and she won’t get into the picture. After they take it, they realize why, as a little boy can be seen peering out from between the legs of some of the people in the photo.
Now, they said they were going to post this photo on their Web site, and since the whole story kinda gave me the willies, I went to the site to check it out. And of course, I couldn’t find it. But when I Googled some keywords, looking for it, I happened upon this really cool site that I wanted to share with you!
On this page are some photos that have apparently not been photoshopped or doctored in any way, and the author of the page, Jeff Danelek, explains why in each frame.
Of course, after that I had to spend some time on his Web site, and check out his book, and I have to say I think he has a GREAT site that is an excellent way to pull people in to see his book. You all know I am interested in Web sites, and blogs, and how they work, so this seemed to go with the theme I have been following for the past few weeks. And it was kinda creepy, too, which always intrigues me.
The author intro says this:
I’m Jeff Danelek, an author and all around n’er do well from Denver, Colorado, who specializes in writing about the paranormal, religion, spirituality and a host of other subjects most people try not to think about too much. I don’t think that automatically makes me a kook, but you can go to my bio page and decide for yourself.
So why did I put together this website? I did it because I believe we live in a curious world that entices us to unravel its many mysteries. I also believe that there are people out there who, like myself, wonder about these things and would appreciate having someone to talk to about them. If you feel the same way, let’s start a dialogue! Just check out the articles under the buttons on the left and let me know your thoughts. No serious posts ignored and I promise to try and respond to each query as soon as I can. Enjoy!
I spent quite a while on Jeff’s site, and was interested enough to look up his books and put them on my “to buy” list.
And that, after all, is EXACTLY what a Web site is supposed to do, right? At least an author Web site. I’d never heard of Jeff before, but you can bet I won’t forget him or his creepy ghost photos.
And just by researching this blog post, I found a new author that intrigued me. Which perfectly illustrates what a Web site is supposed to do. So how about you? Any of you find a new author this way, by searching something else, or happening onto their site? What intrigued you about it? Would you buy the book?
Oh, and Happy LATE Halloween…..
