Ghosts: The Haunted Stanley Hotel

Readers, here’s a scary recounting of ghostly events, first hand, from the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO.  It is said to have inspired Stephen King to write The Shining (although the film exteriors were shot at the Timberline hotel in Oregon, the interiors, in England).  The Stanley has quite the haunted rep, and after reading this story, I can see why! Read and learn:

  1. Jan, I plan to write a couple more of my true crime stories soon. Beyond this I want to blog a fictional love story I wrote a few years ago. It is a big story with 133,000 words. Do you know if I can load the entire book here on my page or should I do it in 10,000 word segments? Pat. BTW I love your stories.

    • Hi, Pat: Actually I think 10,000 word segments is much too large for blog posts – it’s kind of geared to shorter pieces. But you could serialize your story and do it in smaller segments – that would work – in my opinion. Best wishes for success – and thank you for your kind words! 🙂
