THE AUTHOR - TOUR GUIDE
Mindie Burgoyne has been able to attract over 5000 fans to her Facebook Fan Page for Haunted Eastern Shore. She attributes the interest in the ghost tours and the unexpected success of the book (first printing sold out in five weeks) to her ability to build up the fan base through social media. She sees the spin-off successes, like the ghost tours as a result of enthusiastic fans being able to interact with each other on a topic they’re crazy about. “Fans have been organizing their own tours to the sites mentioned in the book, and I’ve had several requests to guide ghost tours, and the first tour we did in Crisfield was so successful, we've added Dorchester, then Caroline and now we're working with Chesapeake College to cover the Upper Shore counties."


NOTE - BOOKS WILL BE FOR SALE: Copies of Haunted Eastern Shore: Ghostly Tales from East of the Chesapeake will be available for sale at the presentation prior to the walking and bus tours. Copies are $17.99 + MD tax = $19.06. Mindie Burgoyne will be happy to sign copies.
