Book Review: One Bed Over: A Hospital Haunting by Alex Matsuo

Believe it or not, this is the 46th book I've read this year (so far). I've been keeping count on Goodreads, and have been known to binge book series on Kindle Unlimited, which is what makes that count go up so fast, I think. 

Anyway, paranormal peeps are going to want to read this one: if you’re a fan of Haunted Hospitals, then you may have seen Alex’s story featured in S3, E12, “It Followed Me Home.” But what TV can’t really give you in a 15–20 minute segment is the whole story of what happened when the author suffered a traumatic accident involving a 25-foot fall, ended up in the hospital for quite some time, and while there, encountered an angry spirit who followed her home. 

While HH covered Alex’s story really well, you will definitely want to read her FULL account. It’s riveting and rich, and I really appreciate Alex’s transparency about her life, what she went through, and what she took away from it.  

Another plus to this book is the author’s voice: this is accessible, intimate reading, like she’s telling you her story in person over a coffee. A true joy to read! And while you're at it, check out the author's cool site, The Spooky Stuff.

You can order her book on Amazon in either Kindle format or paperback, read for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription (at the time of this writing), or, like me, get a signed copy from the author if you see her at an event. 

It was so nice meeting Alex and getting up a signed copy of this book at ConCarolinas 2022.

The Conjuring House Has Sold!

We have all spent months wondering what was going to happen to Andrea Perron's beloved former home when it was listed on the market for $1.2 million, and we now know the answer: the property known as the "Conjuring House" has sold for more than its asking price, for a whopping $1.5 million!

The historic three-bedroom farmhouse at 1677 Round Top Road, built in 1736, was the home of the Perron family for a decade starting in 1971. While there, they experienced a series of manifestations, haunting activity, and most unsettling, the mother of the family was attacked by a spirit. Andrea is fond of saying "It's a portal cleverly disguised as a farmhouse." The home and the events therein became the basis for the first movie in The Conjuring movie franchise, loosely based on the events as told in Andrea Perron's trilogy, House of Darkness, House of Light.

The new owner, Jaqueline Nunez, intends to continue running it as a paranormal business. She will be honoring the existing bookings through the end of 2022 and will be adding day tours and other events as well. She has the Perron family's blessing, too, as you can see in Andrea's interview with the new owner on her radio show/YouTube channel, linked below.

The paranormal world has made a collective sigh of relief, if reactions I've seen online are anything to go by. All I know is that if my friend Andrea is happy with it, then it's a good thing, and I congratulate the Heinzens on the sale, the new owner on her purchase, and I wish everyone the best for the future of the property.
