Title and cover art reveal for the new ghost story book by Dale Jarvis!

As many of you know, I've been working on a new compilation of ghost stories, to be published Fall 2017 by Flanker Press. Now, I can reveal the title: "Haunted Ground - Ghost Stories From The Rock."

Even more fun, I'm delighted to be able to share with you the cover art for the book, designed by the talented Graham Blair.  Graham did the layout for my previous book, Any Mummers 'Lowed In, and I'm pleased to have him back working on this new project.

Stay tuned! I'll keep you informed on possible release dates, signings, and live performances, hopefully all coming your way in time for Hallowe'en 2017!

Can't wait till then to hear a good ghost story? Well, the St. John's Haunted Hike is back up and running for it's 20th anniversary! Check us out at

You asked for it, so it's back: The Haunted Hike - Unearthed!

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the St. John’s Haunted Hike! Join the Haunted Hike founder, storyteller, and folklorist Dale Jarvis, for a special behind-the-scenes tour exploring the history of the Hike since 1997. In this more informal tour, Dale will walk you through the research and the background of the stories that have gone into the Hike over the past twenty years, talk about stories which have been changed or replaced, answer your questions about local folklore, paranormal activity, and supernatural belief, and share some stories not featured on the regular Hike. It is a tour for fans of the unexplained, local history, and those curious about how the Hike really works. Bring your camera and your questions!

“The Haunted Hike - Unearthed!” will go ahead regardless of weather, so come prepared! Tour lasts approximately an hour and a quarter.

$20, limited to 16 participants. Pre-registration required.

Tour time:
2 pm, Saturday, June 10th, 2017
