If you ever wanted to know why houses were haunted … what kind of spirits go bump in the night … and who you’re gonna call, a new book on haunted houses may be just the thing you need!

Totally Scared: The Complete Book on Haunted Houses co-written by paranormal writers Dawn Colclasure and Martha Jette is brimming with stories of people who have lived in haunted houses, and the ghosts who haunt them. Totally Scared will send shivers down your spine as you read about such famous and infamous haunted spots as the Lizzie Borden house and the Amityville house, the Bell Witch and Asa’s ghost, as well as a look at some of the most haunted locations in the world.

This book endorsed by Alexandra Holzer, daughter of the famed paranormalist, Hans Holzer, also offers inside information on what paranormal investigators do when investigating a haunted house, the equipment used, how to obtain proof of a haunting in your home, and certain clairvoyant specialists who use alternative means of cleansing a home. Additionally, stories of true Hollywood hauntings are included, as well as how to create your own haunted house for fun.

"The material in this book helped me to understand haunts better and come to terms with my own experiences of living in haunted houses," Colclasure said.

"The paranormal realm and particularly hauntings is vast and much more common that one might believe," Jette explained. "Although I have had personal experiences in this area, researching this book provided an opportunity for me to grow much more in my own knowledge on how and why a home may be haunted, and what can be done about it."
