The Blackwell Ghost 

Best I can tell, the Blackwell Ghost is a mockumentary, but only the director actually knows for sure if the ghost's part is for real or staged.

Water Never Boils in Bayou Wyrdbury: A Dracula Story 

I'm looking for beta readers for the first chapter of my next book, Water Never Boils in Bayou Wyrdbury: A Dracula Story. Expected release date of Halloween 2021.
