Do you care if you’re lied to?
In the real world we avoid letting people in our lives who are dishonest and abuse our trust. We go to great lengths to make sure to protect ourselves and are careful with whom we let it. Then we hear a good ghost story, and it all drops away.
There is a difference between retelling an urban legend you think might be true and getting into a ghost story everyone knows to be fiction. The pressure to produce paranormal media has introduced a different kind of liar. The line between folklore and fiction is getting ever thinner, but you care?
So do you still care if you’re lied to?

We’re still knee deep in the #hauntedlove project, so we’re especially looking for ghost stories with a love twist.
