Founded on the confluence of two rivers, Kansas City is a place of history, mystery,legend, and lore. The city helped settle the West as the gateway to the Oregon and Santa Fe Trails, and when the railroads arrived, it was considered the Crossroads of the Country. During the Civil War, the Missouri-Kansas border became the first battlefield in the bloody conflict. The Kansas City Stockyards put the city on the national map, as did the horrific massacre at Union Station, Kansas City jazz, and the crime and corruption of the Pendergast era and the years of Prohibition. With all that history, is it any wonder that Kansas City is one of the most haunted cities in America? Take a trip back in time to the early days of the city and discover how the events of the past created the hauntings that still linger in Kansas City today. Go behind the scenes of the most spirited places in the region with author Becky Ray as she reveals a colorful collection of favorite haunts, stories you’ve never heard before, and takes you behind locked doors for the true stories behind some of your favorite local haunts! You’ll be shocked and terrified by historical tales of crime and murder with lurid stories of gangsters, killers, thieves, and cold-blooded murderers that haunt the stories of the Bobby Greenlease Kidnapping, the Union Station Massacre, Kansas City Strangler, the Bridge Murder Case, the Prospect Corridor Killer, and more! Then search for the phantoms of the Savoy Hotel, the Muehlebach, Hotel President, the Folly Theater, Power and Light Building, Epperson House, Sauer Castle, and even journey out beyond the city borders to the Belvoir Winery and Inn, Vaile Mansion, Elms Hotel and Spa, Glore Psychiatric Museum, and much more! Part history book, part true crime thriller, and part ghost book, this volume is sure to have you looking over your shoulder as you turn the pages at night!

Tune in on Wednesday, April 15th at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT for the scoop!
A deep dive into the undersea netherworld of sea serpents, lake monsters, surviving dinosaurs, genetically altered mutants, and legendary aquatic creatures.
The ocean alone takes up 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, with countless lakes, rivers, ponds, and streams covering much of the land, but what lurks beneath the water? For centuries, sightings have been made of huge, marauding monsters swimming the world’s oceans and lakes. They include Scotland’s legendary Loch Ness Monster; the United States’ equivalent, Champ, of Lake Champlain; and Canada’s long-necked denizen of the deep known as Ogopogo. These, and many more, famous monsters of the world below us also include giant squid, massive octopi, and even the legendary Kraken and the fabled mermaids of millennia long-gone.
Whether scaly or slithery, massive prehistoric dinosaurs or mutant serpents, Monsters of the Deep catalogs nearly 100 accounts of eels, alligators, reptiles, giant squids, snakes, worms, deadly fish, and cold-blooded creatures of all manner and ilk. It reveals the astonishing extent to which lake monsters and sea serpents have surfaced throughout history to terrify, perplex, and amaze those who have crossed paths with monsters of the unknown.
Nick Redfern is a full-time author and journalist specializing in a wide range of unsolved mysteries, including Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, UFO sightings, government conspiracies, alien abductions and paranormal phenomena.
He writes regularly for the London Daily Express newspaper, Fortean Times, Fate, and UFO Magazine.
His previous books include Three Men Seeking Monsters, Strange Secrets, Cosmic Crashes, and The FBI Files. Among his many exploits, Redfern has investigated reports of lake monsters in Scotland, vampires in Puerto Rico, werewolves in England, aliens in Mexico, and sea serpents in the United States. Redfern travels and lectures extensively around the world.
Originally from England, he currently lives in Dallas, Texas.
Harvey, on being a Sensitive: ‘As a sensitive it can be a burden at times but I have learned to live with my abilities by controlling them. I taught myself decades ago how to turn them on and off. People always ask me how I do what I do and my response,” I practice, practice, practice”. The more you use it the more accurate you become. The biggest block to progress is self doubt. Many people second guess the information that comes to them and over filter it. By the time they are ready to share the info it has become overly convoluted and makes no sense. I always say what comes to me no matter what it is, especially, if it means absolutely nothing to me but 9 out of 10 times will mean everything to the person I am reading’.

The Annunaki Connection
Available March 1st, 2020
Connects a diverse range of new and existing theories about the Anunnaki, offering a definitive guide to the Anunnaki while exploring their possible connection to humanity’s past, present, and future.
Over 6,000 years ago, the world’s first civilization, the Sumerians, were recording stories of strange celestial gods who they believed came from the heavens to create mankind. These gods, known as the Anunnaki, are often neglected by mainstream historians. The Sumerians themselves are so puzzling; scholars have described their origin as “The Sumerian Problem.”
With so little taught about the ancient Sumerians in our history books, alternative theories have emerged. This has led many to wonder, What is the true story behind the Sumerians and their otherworldly gods, the Anunnaki? In The Anunnaki Connection, Heather Lynn connects a diverse range of new and existing theories about the Anunnaki, offering a definitive guide to Mesopotamian gods while exploring what role they might have played in engineering mankind. The Anunnaki Connection traces the evolution of gods throughout the Ancient Near East, analyzing the religion, myth, art, and symbolism of the Sumerians, investigating:
Who are the Anunnaki?
How accurate are the current Sumerian text translations, and how do we know for sure who to believe?
Is there a connection between the Anunnaki and other ancient gods? What about demons?
Where are the Anunnaki now? Will their possible return spell the end of our world?

About Jo Wilde
Jo Wilde lives on a small farm in Waskom, Texas, right on the border of Louisiana, with her husband and their three children. She is a stay-at-home mom and is earning her BA in English.
Growing up, Jo lived in a time when women were to be seen rather than heard. This notion didn’t sit well with her. She often found herself in a pickle, speaking her mind, attending outrageous concerts, hanging out with the cool kids, and pushing the limits of what society deemed as acceptable.
Now that she’s settled down and has a family of her own, she saves her inner rebel for her books. Jo loves writing stories about strong, spunky female-roles that don’t take any bull and makes no excuses. She is best known for her young adult book, The CROSSING. And she promises there are more coming soon!
