When writing True Haunting, I never imagined a sequel. I believe in nonfiction that the whole story should be told. Instead, my tenant surfaced with untold chapters and I received emails asking about Marsha and how she coped while I was at work. Add to that the fact that I left off the weird tale of my final tenant which I felt did not add much to the original book. All combined, it equals True Haunting 2. I realized that with this additional information a thread of madness and possession took place within the first floor apartment. I also realized that much went on while I was at work and I frankly faced these occurrences with denial. People may not believe that I never interviewed my wife until 40+ years later. Why? Because I really did not want to know about the things that I could not protect her from. When reuniting with my first floor tenant on the set of Paranormal Witness, I was shocked at what I was told about the goings on within that apartment that I was never aware of. In the end, I had a choice. I could rewrite True Haunting into a larger more expensive book, or release a sequel, that I refer to as a companion. I preferred the sequel, as tens of thousands already owned the first book and I could price the True Haunting 2 affordably. I did switch publishers, as my self publisher is now owned and controlled by two traditional publishers that demanded changes, deletions and enhancements. So much for the truth! True Haunting 2, is unaltered with nothing embellished or added. It may or may not contain the 'Boo" factor that commercial publishers enjoy adding, but real paranormal is frightening enough, or at least enough for us! I hope you enjoy it!
