Haunting Hour Podcasts Starting Back Up!

Hey guys! It’s been a bit and a long emotional journey but finally I have found a place to live. I am so very lucky to be able and record in my own room which is so foreign to me that I was in shell shock for two days just staring at the beauty. My own room for art, and recording. While I have a long time ahead to be able and replace all of my things, I am grateful that I have been able to replace my microphone.

For those of you left in the dark, I was caught in the floods in Dallas and my home was completely destroyed. I had to live in hotels until this week and finally am able to get back to a normal life.

I’ve been trying to decide when the big day will be that I can finally start releasing more episodes and believe that I can start on either the first or second week of October. Just in time for the spookiness! Needless to say that I am ecstatic for my favorite time of year to begin. While most of my holiday dĂ©cor was destroyed, I can at least carve pumpkins and maybe string up festive garland. Oh and movies. Lots and lots of creepy movies. This time of year is just the best and I love it!

Of course as most of you know, I’m not one to keep up with social media and I’m a bit of a hermit but I do so love to write and make podcasts for all of you. Know that your dark story mistress is back babyyyy and we’re all about to get our spooky on again.

This week’s adventure in flood land

Not going to lie, this past month has been hard. Our entire (very up to date vaccinated staff) office got the new variant of COVID. No one in Dallas is talking about it, but several of my buds working in hospitals have said they’re filling capacity again.

So. That was fun.

My new hire was a complete bust. It was a hard lesson learned not to purchase work attire for them before seeing if they stay.

It took a couple weeks, but finally got a new hire and man she seems great. Here’s hoping.

Because I had to hold down the fort while people were in quarantine, I ended up getting it myself. But I can’t shut down so I had to power through, take meds, sanitize everything several times a day and warn customers. Let’s just say burn out was putting it lightly as to what I was feeling.

Oh, and it was great getting a one star review because I wasn’t able to answer the phones and a lot of text messages. đź‘Ť

Thank goodness they removed it after I explained the situation and apologized. It was just exhausting. But finally, we were able to get things back on track.

So the new girl was hired, business was running smoothly, and I got to spend an awesome weekend with my daughter.

Then it happened.

Around 3:00 a.m. I woke up to my entire downstairs flooded.

My life was down there. My daughter’s life was down there. I managed to save computers (at least I hope, I have been leaving them off just in case.)

I was in shock most of today, trying to dig through what I could salvage. I had to be really careful because flood water contains sewage.

Literally 90% of her stuff was not salvageable. A good 60-70% of mine was also not.

The most devastating thing was my recording equipment. I can’t even think about that without feeling like I’m about to cry. I just bought that equipment and it’s gone.

And this isn’t even everything. It’s all I have the heart to post. For my recording area.

All my downstairs furniture, specialty cooking ware, food, craft supplies, art supplies, easels, paintings, the list goes on. Several thousand dollars gone. Just. Gone.

I can really use some good vibes guys, and virtual hugs.

Take care everyone. Hope all is well with you.

Love Grey

Thursday Vibes

Hello fine people of the internet! I find myself getting more and more excited as the hot months begin to pass. It’s barely halfway through August and I can feel my excitement for Halloween mounting.

If you haven’t already checked out our visit to Camp Chrystal Cove, you can find them here: https://soundcloud.com/cagreyson Our last day is coming soon, so you better catch up!

I’m polishing up my final tale to record and then we will all gather around the campfire, gorge ourselves on s’mores, and shiver with delight as we try not to look over our shoulders─ too much.

With that being said, we’ll return back to our normal podcast of the creepy, spooky, and downright terrifying stories of urban legends, mythologies, and the supernatural. Have a great Thursday guys~

Stay creepy.

New Podcast Coming Tuesday and Other News

Hey, hi, hello─

First off, please don’t go drown in the lake or burn off your eyebrows this weekend, K? K.

I’m releasing my next podcast this coming Tuesday and super pumped that I’m getting to cover urban legends again. If you aren’t familiar with my work, you can check it out here. These episodes (in between our horror tales written by yours truly) focus on the supernatural, horror, urban legends, creepypasta, and bizarre mythologies. There’s something magical about the world holding mysteries that can’t be explained. For me, that world is the world of the unknown─ and not just any unknown, the kind we grew up with as warnings for children. Specifically, tales of the boogey-men. It really drew me in and fascinated me, that a creature could spirit me away into worlds unknown.

What waited there, I wonder?

My mother loved the tale The Pied Piper of Hamelin, we would read it often when I was a kid. I would think on these kinds of stories many times. Where had he taken them? Had the Pied Piper really been a demon tricking the townsfolk by sending the rats into the town─ and then, acting as their savior? Even stranger is that to my surprise and delight the story was actually based off of historical records! So now, even as an adult I find myself intrigued and wondering just where did the children go and who was the Pied Piper?

If you’re interested in real-life horrors, I also cover hauntings and the terror that the supernatural have brought into other people’s life. The creepy, the spooky, the downright sinister corners of the world.

Anyway~ This coming week we’ll cover one of my personal favorites The Black-Eyed Children, along with a few other disturbing urban legends. Join me as we uncover spine-tingling tales of terror─

That is, if you’re brave enough.

“Let me inside, please.”

Pleasant dreams all.

The Haunting Hour Episodes 2 & 3 are out!

So if you are a little out-of-the-loop, The Haunting Hour podcast is back on the air! I kicked off the new season with a short story called “My Family Is Falling Apart.” They will be released in four parts, the last to be released soon.

Synopsis:

My Family Is Falling Apart is an audio thriller that follows the aftermath of a family torn apart. The main character, Tom, doesn’t want to let go and lose hope that one day Jenna may come back. In the midst of all that has happened Tom and Jenna’s daughter, Karis, begins acting strangely─ claiming to see monsters in her room. Of course all children go through that, especially when they experience divorce. Tom believes it is a phase that will pass─

Until he sees the creatures too.

Come along for the ride as we discover the sinister truth behind Our Family Is Falling Apart.

News! Podcasts, they are a comin’

So, if you’ve been keeping up with the new stuff recently I’ve been releasing my podcast shows again! You can check them out here.

It’s been a long journey getting to where I have now vs. where I was at a few years ago. Getting my life balanced has been a real struggle. I know that what I’m doing with the podcast can be seen as a hobby, but rest assured I pour my all into these when I make them.

I really want to transport the listener to somewhere else for a short time─ something haunting and beautiful to escape to. Or to nerd out together over the creepy, crawly, supernatural goodness. I really want to thank you all for taking time out of your days to listen to my audio-shorts and read my stories. It certainly means the world to me.

I will be releasing these every other week on Tuesday mornings. I’m working on nailing down a time, but I’ll try to have them up before 8:00 a.m. CST. Part three of this series will be up Tuesday, April 12th so don’t forget to catch up and listen to parts 1 and 2! Feel free to peruse my older productions as well and I hope that I can provide your mind with a sense of child-like wonder delving into these mysterious worlds.

xoxo,

The Haunting Hour Podcast Returns and Other News

It’s a Wednesday morning and I’m at my desk wondering how on earth I got here in life. It’s an odd feeling working in such a male-dominated industry and yet, so fulfilling. It’s a buzzword these days ‘male-dominated’ and I think it goes without saying people are probably a little tired of hearing it. But in an industry like HVAC (unless you are mainly on the supply side) there are very few female workers.

It can get stressful and yes, extremely challenging with customers that are not used to not only ‘retail workers’ (I use this word very loosely because we run a unique business) not knowing what they are talking about, but especially female employees. At the end of the day though, helping others brings a certain joy into my life that I never knew could exist.

Unfortunately running a business also means less time to do a lot that I would like to do. Curse you, sleep─ I wish that I didn’t need you! I was tremendously excited to get my new podcast equipment this past Christmas and to also get my sound booth up and running. While I’m not 100% sure that I will be able to do a weekly show, I would enjoy making the show an every other week release.

If you’re not familiar with my past work, you can find my podcasts here, and my writing here.

If you’ve been following me on Twitter you’ll know that I sometimes do story threads! I will probably try and put those up on this website so you can follow what is going on. If you’d like to participate on a vote just get notifications set up so you can see when to make the magic happen.

So these are just a few things to expect from a girl that really likes to get spooked and fascinated by the unknown. Buckle up buttercups, we’re all in for a fantastic spooky ride! Happy Wednesday ❤

xoxo-

Grey
