Episode Teaser: She Thrust Her Fists Against the Posts

…and still insists she sees the ghosts.

There Might Be Cupcakes Episode 3 Teaser: my true ghost stories. I have lived in three haunted houses, including my current home. I have had many paranormal experiences in these homes–and elsewhere–with witnesses present. I have even had chilling experiences in two famous American haunted locales: a docked battleship and a tuberculosis hospital. So this will definitely be a two-parter of long episodes–at least. While I write it all down, have fun reading about one of my favorite true haunting, the Borley Rectory (image) at http://www.prairieghosts.com/brectory.html look at the upper left–nothing eerier in my mind than an invisible writer exorting you to attend Mass…(I guess except a an invisible writing warning you not to!) #trypod #podcast #beyourownheroine #carlahufstedler #podcasts #carla #theremightbecupcakes #newpodcast #amwriting #comingsoon #history #horror #newepisode #newpodcasts #podcastpreparation #preparation #England #UK #BorleyRectory #trueghoststories #ghosts #hauntings #paranormal #truestories 👻

Announcement: Podcast Launch

No turning back now! It’s written in stone pixels!

Look! No longer "nascent" and no longer vague. My introvert babble is coming by the end of this month! ❤️ to my digital homes @siteground and #blubrrypodcast. I hope you're excited because I am excited. All my years of taking #commonplacebook notes from what I read have come to fruition. Prepare for strange facts, weird angles to #truecrime cases (filtered through my master's in counseling and #INFJ personality), happy rambling about #books and #readinglife, the funny and not-so-much sides to living with #chronicpain, and talking to my spelndiferously creative friends, some of whom you already fanbliss about. Oh, and, as I continue to edit my first novel thanks to #nanowrimocamp2017, I'll even read bits to you. Because it's that good. And cupcakes are for sharing. Setting up newsletter/announcement list this week, so you'll know when the eccentric introduction episode airs. This is not about fame or money, this is about fun, and old and new friends, and leaving stress behind for just a little while so your true self can play. With me. 🎉 🎈🤹🏻‍♀️ #podcast #podcastpreparation #theremightbecupcakes #carla #carlahufstedler #cupcakes #comingsoon #podcasts #newpodcast #newpodcasts #sharing #storytelling #comingsoon2017 #preparation #beyourownheroine

There Might Be Cupcakes: Reason No. 4

Think about it: granola bar, kale smoothie…even your favorite Starbucks blend in one hand–You could be driving to your attorney's office or working on a group project that suddenly doesn't seem so group-y. But a cupcake? Doesn't matter if it's the boss' surprise birthday party that he threw for himself and made mandatory, or that cookie-sale-launch meeting for your daughter's Girl Scout troop, whatever you might hold in your other hand looks brighter and shinier. And let's face it–usually a box of cupcakes means Girls' Night In, which means 🍷, or you are throwing yourself and whomever you choose (even if that's nobody else) a Netflix and chill 🎥, which means comfort food and/or recreational marijuana for you lucky few (hurry up, VA)…if you are upset eating a cupcake, and have nothing awesome in the other hand…Back slowly out of the room without breaking eye contact, then run. They're pod people. We're here for you. Find one of our safe houses. #podcast #podcastpreparation #theremightbecupcakes #carla #carlahufstedler #cupcakes #comingsoon #podcasts #newpodcast #newpodcasts #sharing #storytelling #comingsoon2017 #preparation #beyourownheroine
