I'm writing a book about ghost stories in the towns along the Missouri River and would like for anyone who has experienced ghostly encounters to share their experience for possible inclusion in the book. I am particularly interested in Brownville, Nebraska City, Plattsmouth, Omaha, and the smaller towns north of Omaha (but still along the Missouri River). I do not want folklore; I want actual experiences, please. I will then write a short story based on your experience (possibly including details from other people if I get more than one person telling about the same place).

If you would like to share your experience, please send an email to ghoststories7@gmail.com with the following information:

* Your name
* Whether or not you want your actual name used in the story
* Your phone number (in case I need to call to clarify details)
* Where the event happened (address)
* When the event happened (day or night, year, month, etc. -- as much as you can remember about the time of the event)
* Description of the event
* Who or what you think is doing the haunting and why
* How many others were with you when you experienced the haunting and whether or not those people had the same experience
* Any other details you would like to include

And I need for you to please state clearly in the email 1) that you are giving me permission to use the information, 2) that you expect no payment in return, 3) that you understand a short story will be created based on your experience, and 4) that your sending me the email and typing your full name at the bottom of the email is your digital signature attesting to the statement.

Thank you very much! I'll post a message here when the book is published.

Hi Everyone!

I've gotten a good response to my request for ghost stories, and I appreciate everyone who took time to share their stories with me and answer my follow up questions. But my publisher is asking for more stories! Please -- if anyone has stories to share of paranormal experiences in the towns and cities in Nebraska along the Missouri River, I would be very grateful.

Thanks so much!

--Melissa
