The Time for Ghostly Tales Is Just Around the Corner
It’s time to get ready for ghostly tales, and we have just the books for you. We are celebrating the upcoming Halloween season with a GIVEAWAY of one book of your choice! (Enter at the end of this page.)
Horror fans will delight in these terrifying tales about haunted locations, all based on reportedly true accounts. One of my favorite aspects of ghost stories is that they often provide a fascinating look into local history. Many of these chilling tales stem from catastrophes, crimes, or tragic accidents.
The short stories are ideal for quick reading, and they are sure to captivate even the most reluctant readers. Share them with friends around a campfire, or try them alone at home—if you dare!
Ghostly Tales of Iowa, by Ruth D. Hein and Vicky L. Hinsenbrock, is a collection of 24 chilling stories about encounters with the supernatural in Iowa. With a mysterious ghost that communicates by knocking, the spirit of a witch that tries to lure children into the basement of an abandoned home, a love triangle that ended with three tragic deaths and one tormented ghost—Iowa is one of the most haunted states in America. Dive into the most surprising tales of the Hawkeye State!
Ghostly Tales of Michigan, by our very own Ryan Jacobson, features 27 scary stories about encounters with the supernatural in Michigan. A place so haunted it was featured on national television, a heroic specter that saved a man’s life, an April Fool’s joke that revealed the presence of a dog-like monster—this collection of ghost stories represents the freakiest tales of the Great Lakes State!
In Ghostly Tales of Minnesota, by Ruth D. Hein, you’ll get acquainted with 33 stories about encounters with the paranormal in Minnesota.

Ghostly Tales of Mississippi, by Jeff Duke, is a collection of 14 terrifying accounts from the Magnolia State.
