Rainbow Snippets

I’m off to Rathacon in a few and then I get to drive in a monster storm to go home for Mother’s Day. That should be fun. Head desk (I never actually go home for MOther’s Day but I’ll be house sitting for my brother the whole week).

And oh, since this came up last week, These Haunted Hills is a WIP so yeah if you see any typos or the like, please feel free to point them out. I will not be offended and will be thankful since I was obviously blind to them!

We’re still in the truck here. For contest, Brendan has told Josh he doesn’t want to talk about ghosts any more (as a) he’s trying to order his thoughts for his novel and b) he’s freaking himself out).

“I’ll have to find something else to talk about. Maybe something not geeky. I’d hate to give you the wrong impression.” Joshua smiled.

Brendan suspected he already knew the sort of man Joshua was. Hell, he liked Josh’s geekiness. “Do we even have non-geeky things to talk about?”

“Sure, we can talk about who makes better beer, us Germans or you Irish.”

“I have one word for you: Guinness.” Brendan grinned.

“And I have one for you, Weihenstephan.”

So yeah I didn’t get a chance to read in the last two weeks. It’s been too busy. The steampunk symposium was a great time and I might get a chance to do something creatively with it next year. Fingers crossed. Then it was finals and graduation today. I’m still exhausted. So the only thing left for me to do is edits but I can do that and comment too.

I’m picking right back up with These Haunted Hills. Brendan and Josh are in the truck leaving the haunted hotel.

(Brendan) “Could it have gone really bad in there? You know, like in the movies. Can these ghosts possess someone?”

Joshua wrinkled his nose, not answering right away. “There have been documented cases but not from a simple ghost hunt, at least not that I’ve read. Usually it’s either someone living in a haunted house for long periods of time or more likely a medium who can actually talk to ghost, if you believe in that sort of thing. They often invite the ghosts to pass through them or use them to communicate and that seems to go badly. What you need to worry about more is picking up a hitchhiker. It’s been known to happy. You go into a haunted house. The ghost likes you and goes home with you.”

Brendan cocked up his eyebrows. “You didn’t think to mention that beforehand.”

“I’m pretty sure it was in one of the original emails. Of course, not being a medium, I’ll have no idea if either of us are going home with a supernatural plus-one.”
