At the start of this month, I spent a couple of days in Sleepy Hollow, New York. It and neighboring Tarrytown are very pretty. For a guy like me, the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery was the main attraction, partly because it’s where Washington Irving, the author of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” lies buried. I paid my respects to the great American writer and told him that I had named my publishing “cottage” after his character, Brom Bones. He made no objections.
One reason I went to Sleepy Hollow was to have a picturesque setting to make a video announcement of the next Brom Bones Books release: Entranced by Eyes of Evil: Tales of Mesmerism and Mystery. The book features stories about evil hypnotists–or characters who suffer the consequences of dabbling in hypnosis. There are 18 tales, the most recognizable authors being Edgar Allan Poe, Louisa May Alcott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Ambrose Bierce.
Entranced by Eyes of Evil should be available in just a few days now, and here’s the video I had made in Sleepy Hollow to announce its arrival. Below that are some pictures I took there.
I’ll let you know when Entranced by Eyes of Evil is available for purchase.
