The Haunting of Gallagher Hotel by K.T. Rose is a twisted tale of good versus evil in a hauntingly good ghost story that will keep you turning pages until the end. Rose went to a new level of haunting in this novel.
Riley is a server who has been asked to work for a one-night gig at the Gallagher Hotel. She is one of the few on a concise list of people invited to this special event and she has no idea why the owner asked for her. During the first few minutes on the job Riley is introduced to a handful of special guests including Chris who has plans to work a short stint before grabbing as many treasures as he can and heading to Mexico. With a cast of characters that is quite diverse the evening is set to be memorable for everyone.
I give this story 4 out of 5 stars for its ability to keep me turning pages with new surprises throughout. Some of the plot twists get confusing because there are so many lives intertwined, but overall, the plot carries you through for an eye-opening look at justice and truth in the eyes of a greater being. This story is definitely a must-read for any ghost hunter!
Ricky the raccoon, in spite of having an imagination impaired mother who named him, was having a good run of scavenging. His favorite bistro was the garbage can at Vera’s house. She wasn’t only wasteful, she enjoyed high carb and fatty foods. But that menu had suddenly changed. It was Monday night, a time that raccoons everywhere loved. Garbage was piled highest before the Trash Day Tuesday. To his dismay, Vera had changed her eating habits! All her garbage contained were empty mail order DIET meal containers. No chicken skin, no potato rolls, and NO donuts! This wouldn’t do. He waited for daylight. And in perfect raccoon fashion, chattered his complaint as she walked to her car. “FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, where’s the good stuff?! Have you no soul woman?!” Vera’s new lifestyle emboldened her in many ways. Unafraid of this obviously rabid animal, she called Animal Control from…
That moose is always late and I just checked into his room, but all I found was Gideon’s bible. I hope he is OK, as another moose stole the girl of his dreams. It is kind of odd that her name was Magill, but she called herself Lil and everyone knew her as Nancy. I mean like wtf is up with that and then there is that man, who called himself Dan. Bullwinkle never liked that guy from day one. Bullwinkle and Nancy went over to Dan’s house where he lived with his wife Debbie. Nancy and Debbie were besties and Debbie promised Dan that he could have a threesome with her and Nancy, but that left Bullwinkle out in the cold. Bullwinkle purchased a gun and he burst in on the threesome, while grinning a grin and he said, “Danny boy, this is a showdown”, but that was the…
I’ve had several encounters with raccoons over the years. The first time was in Northern Wisconsin, when I was maybe 13 or 14. We would go with another family to stay at that family’s cabin in Eagle River so we could go fishing (well, they could go fishing; it wasn’t my favorite activity, so I’d keep myself occupied during the day). Some of us found a baby raccoon, which was first named Charlie, then Leo-guy. We’d go out first thing in the morning and Leo-guy was waiting for us. Our mothers warned us not to get too attached, because we were not bringing a raccoon home with us. We finally decided the raccoon had to go when he got hold of the fish that they had caught, and Leo-guy went back to living with his mother.
We grew up near Loyola University on the North Side of Chicago, and when…

Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
*Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.
