Sweetgum Press Needs More Missouri Paranormal Stories

The editor is holding the collection until she has a good sampling of stories. Examples of what's been received so far:
"I received one on the Light at Senate, and that was a very short piece, like a summary anecdote; one ghost experience that was connected to opening an attic; one ghost story about sounds and feelings at night.
One person described, in person, an experience to me--having a section of the house get colder and colder while the rest of the house was warm; the family associated it with evil and that sounded like a good explanation at the time. She may submit a piece about that."
From the previous blog post:
