Meet Robert Pruneda: This Week's Treasured & Tipsy Timeslip Traveller

Image
Travel and make-believe go hand in hand. Whether we're in the present or the past, in a haunted castle, an enchanted forest or a broken down building, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and traveling the world can bring the imagination to life.

Please join this week's guest, horror author, Robert Pruneda, as he takes us on a spooky journey into the haunted places of the United States. #Amityville #TheStanleyHotel #TheQueenMary #MuseumofDeath #ClintonRoad #Alcatraz Island #Travel #AuthorInterview #TreasuredTipsyTimeslip #RachaelStapleton #RobertPruneda #Horror

Let's Talk Witches and Magic with Best-selling Author Marie Lavendar

There are so many places throughout time I want to visit that is was a challenge to narrow it down. While my novel is classified as military science fiction, like all things, its roots are buried in the past in more ways than one. My first stop on my epic journey would be to witness the Battle of Tours in France in 732 AD.
I pick a battle because the main character in my story draws …
