My Gambling Ghosts Series is about roaming spirits who like to play poker.
At the moment I’m working on a seance scene in, A Viking Ghost for Valentine’s Day.
It’s great, ghouly fun. To give the piece resonance I researched seances. Here are my top three finds:
One – Spirits Like Flowers
… especially white roses. Flowers do add a touch of the Gothic to the scene. Very cryptic.
Two – Candles are a Must
The number required and color vary in my sources, but candles are a “must-have” in a seances. Ghosts are drawn to the light. Or so they say. And I wouldn’t want to make lite of that.
Three – Good Manners Rule
Best practice for seances include opening with a protection prayer/chant and closing with a proper thank you.
While none of these points surprise me, their lack of surprise did. If that makes any sense.
I searched for enchanting secrets to bring back the dead, dark, luscious details to reach into the unknown … a shimmering glimpse of other dimensions. But instead I found flowers, candles and etiquette.
It sounds like a cheesy date:)
