Repost from @zombies.vicki using @RepostRegramApp - This is going to be such an interesting read! Haunted By History is the perfect book for folks coming to my historical house! Thanks so much to Craig Owens from @bizarre_los_angeles for such a cool book. Maybe next he’ll come to my house someday. It’s 175 years old and there was a murder! Just sayin... #delaneyhouseinn #murder #hauntedbyhistory #haunted #hauntedhotels #history #truestory #historical ....👻👻👻👻👻👻 (Thank you, Vicki...Hopefully, I can visit your house someday soon.

Earlier today, I checked into Julian Gold Rush Hotel. The owners put me in Haunted Room 10 without my asking! Now that’s service! My HAUNTED BY HISTORY presentation starts at 7 pm so I need to get ready. I’ve already met some very interesting people here. One hotel guest from San Diego even had me autograph my picture in the Julian newspaper! I’ll try to post an update a little later. #hauntedbyhistory #julianca #hauntedhotel #craigowens #bizarrela #bizarrelosangeles #selfietime #bibliophile #newbook #paranormal #ghosts #history #wishyouwerehere #hauntedroom

Q: Do you consider yourself a photographer, an author, or a paranormal investigator?….............................A: I consider myself a paranormal researcher first. After that, I’d say I’m a photographer, paranormal investigator, and author in that order. A paranormal researcher investigates (and questions) everything: property history, employee and eyewitness paranormal testimonies, media claims, ghost hunting equipment, nonbeliever explanations, paranormal author’s claims as well as the claims made by other paranormal investigators/teams. I’m definitely a researcher, which is a rare bird. It’s like being Mulder and Scully wrapped into one person. But one has to have that balance in order to separate folklore from fakelore. The main thing is to keep the history real. It helps to discern which ghost stories are credible and which ones aren’t. Researchers help owners understand their property more than investigators because their focus covers many facets (renovations, the financial ups and downs through decades of different owners, documented deaths, etc). Researchers are also very beneficial to investigators. The photos are fun and serve a unique purpose all their own, but I’ll have to write about that process in another post.👻👻👻 You can purchase HAUNTED BY HISTORY VOL 1 online at Bizarrela.com and Amazon. Hotels covered: Hotel del Coronado, Victorian Rose B&B, Julian Gold Rush Hotel, Mission Inn, Alexandria Hotel, Pierpont Inn, Banning House Lodge, and Glen Tavern Inn.

Here’s another photo that didn’t make it into my book HAUNTED BY HISTORY VOL. 1. We were shooting in the courtyard of the Banning House Lodge, which is said to have paranormal activity. I had my doubts that the quiet B&B on Catalina Island was haunted before we arrived. I’ve since changed my mind, although I don’t recommend the “Haunted Catalina” books that are sold on the island. Even the Two Harbors locals don’t think much of them. Model: Jennifer McPherson; MUA: @Serrano beauty. Find out what happened during our shoot by purchasing your own copy of the book on bizarrela.com or Amazon.

Conjuring up the ghost of Kate Morgan at the Hotel del Coronado. Although she didn’t make her presence known in the lobby, the model staying in her room received a mystery phone call around 5 am with no one on the other line.

“Shoot! Or we’ll shoot!”
Here’s a behind-the-scenes photo for HAUNTED BY HISTORY VOL. 1 taken in one of the haunted rooms at the Pierpont Inn’s Vickers Estate in Ventura, CA. The theme revolved around a fictional 1910s movie serial about the evil Black Widow, her rogue army of thuggish Spider Mites, and a cheesy robot interfering with the wedding plans of two world adventurers. While the theme was goofy and over-the-top, it stirred up paranormal activity, which is what I had hoped for—since the Pierpont has, from a historical POV, an Old Hollywood silent film connection. Every day that passed during our four-day shoot, the activity grew more pronounced. It even broke out in my home approx. 100 miles away —
on our third day at the Inn! Coincidence? I’m not sure. This photo was taken near the beginning of our shoot and does not appear in the book. It is still a fun picture. You can read about the Pierpont Inn’s real history, its haunted history, and the results of our photo shoot in my book! It is available at bizarrela.com, Amazon, @themysticmuseum @kingrichardsantiques @valleyrelicsmuseum @skylightbooks @papermoonvtg @theglentaverninn and Heaven’s Gallery in Ventura! Models: Jeremiah McDonald, @cutelatinguy , @nadialanfranconi , @marshswing , and Sean McHugh. #hauntedbyhistory #craigowens #bizarrelosangeles #bizarrela #coffeetablebook #roguesgallery #vamp #blackwidow #villainous #ghosts #paranormal #buythebook #venturacounty #steampunk #venturaca #hauntedhotel #pierpontinn #oldhollywoodglam #vintagephotography

There are very few stones that I didn’t turn over and look under when researching Southern California hotels for my book HAUNTED BY HISTORY. I fact-checked each hotel’s history...and spent years tracing the ghost stories back to their origins. I even ran my own experiments on location (aka. Photo shoots and audio surveillance) to see if I, too, could conjure up similar paranormal activity. As a result, I ended up creating a book that is revisionist...not just in history but also in its paranormal claims. I even showed the absurdities of some of these past claims by staging them (like this photo)! Because of all of the wacky claims made over the past 30 to 40 years, I felt compelled to set the record straight for posterity sake. And while I don’t have the answers to all historical or paranormal questions about these hotels, I guarantee you this: once you read the book, you will know as much as most historians and be several steps ahead of most paranormal investigators. I’m also willing to wager that right now—at this very moment—you probably believe in at least one urban legend that was made up for marketing sake...only you don’t know it! .....So buy my book and let’s talk about it!!!!The book is available at bizarrela.com, Amazon, @themysticmuseum , @papermoonvtg , #skylightbooks , @valleyrelicsmuseum @glentaverninn #hauntedbyhistory #craigowens #bizarrelosangeles #bizarrela #paranormal #ghosts #ghoststories #thehauntedtruth #urbanlegends #iwanttobelieve #hauntedhotel #losangeles #sandiego #julianca #ventura #santapaula #dtla #catalinaisland

I strongly encourage you Valley Bizarros to visit the museum and buy my book there if you want to see something unique and different! Why? Because you’re getting a killer book and supporting a Valley treasure that survives on donations and gift store sales.) #coffetablebook #christmasgift #amazon

Here is a photo that almost made it into HAUNTED BY HISTORY, but it got nixed in the last edit. Kind of wish I had room for it. Taken at the Hotel del Coronado. As usual, when I wasn’t hunting ghosts, I was shooting Old Hollywood style photos that told a story and established the location as its own character. I was mimicking Hal Roach and Billy Wilder while there. Models: KC, @amberkloss, @richalpern and @misterwillett.

Repost from @nature_ninja - Down the rabbit hole with @bizarre_los_angeles. Couldn’t have asked for a better adventure day.
#urbexadventures#bizarrelosangeles#griffithparkghoststories 👻👻👻(Craig’s note: One of the good things about the release of my book HAUNTED BY HISTORY is my being able to make new friends among buyers. Alex attended my first book presentation back in August and we’re already having adventures together! Recently, we scouted the allegedly haunted areas of Griffith Park. We did, however, skip the “haunted park bench” because the claim is a hoax. Looking forward to our next hiking adventure with you, Alex!Next time and location we’ll bring ghost hunting gear!) #hauntedbyhistory #bizarrelosangeles #bizarrela #haunted #zoocage #graffitiart #craigowens
