Haunts of Old Louisville

Just received this press release from our pal David Dominé in the mail today:

David Domine's Fourth Book Is Released

McClanahan Publishing House is pleased to announce the publication of David Domine's fourth book, HAUNTS OF OLD LOUISVILLE: Gilded Age Ghosts and Haunted Mansions in America's Spookiest Neighborhood. This is the third volume in the popular “Haunted Old Louisville” series, and there are two more yet to come. David’s first book, GHOSTS OF OLD LOUISVILLE: True Stories of Hauntings from America's Largest Victorian Neighborhood, became something of a local phenomenon after its release in 2005 when Publishers Weekly picked up on its unusually high sales numbers and reported nation-wide that “something downright spooky” was happening in Louisville. In its first year alone it saw three printings and sold over 10,000 copies, making David one of the most successful authors of non-fiction in the state. In 2008, his books were featured in the October edition of Southern Living in conjunction with the ghost tours and history and architecture tours he started to promote heritage tourism in Old Louisville, one of the largest historic preservation districts in the nation. David’s stories are unique in that he uses reportedly true tales of hauntings to inform readers about the hidden past that surrounds them.

The release of HAUNTS OF OLD LOUISVILLE was celebrated on August 22 during an autograph party at the Inn at the Park in Old Louisville but a series of book signings has been planned over the next few months. The first official signing will be held at the Frankfort Avenue Carmichael’s at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 3.
