I was at my computer all day yesterday, yet didn't find time to post anything. Instead, I was working on a few dozen pages for my revamped website. It too a lot longer than expected since I forgot to bookmark several websites to gather information about different places open to the public. I still have to tackle brief histories of each place, but I'll get to that eventually.
Research has showed to a painstaking level for the book. But I'm all about historical accuracy so it'll be worth it. Unfortunately, this means there are numerous errors in my "road trips" that will be corrected as time progresses. I'm attempting to find genealogical information for a few places to verify ghostly legends, but that's not proving to be very easy. I have gathered enough evidence, though, to safely say that an article produced in the LA Times about one specific place contains a few errors... and a book by Troy Taylor about Hollywood haunts is riddled with inaccuracies when it comes to one tale in particular (if a 40th birthday party was held for the son of a prominent citizen on the date mentioned, that would mean his mother would have been 3 years old... I doubt even then they started that young).
Otherwise, I've run across some odd bits for future posts and have a busy evening of ghost hunting in store for me, which I'll touch upon tomorrow. For now, I have a few things to hurry up and complete before I run out of time!
