    That is one creepy cover! Definitely promises some tales that could keep a reader up at night!

    I always figured Big Foot made the most sense of all the mysterious creatures. I always assumed he’d have enough human qualities to want to refrain from joining civilized society.

    I never knew that about tomatoes!

    I spent a lot of time Big Foot hunting in my youth too. What is it about our generation, the new drivers license, and piling in cars for – whatever reason? My kids learn of the stories surrounding our woods and creeks, and honestly believe – as I did at their age – that “adults” know nothing about the kissing points, drinking coves, Big Foot hide-outs.

    Those were all great wives tales Juneta. The book sounds cute. I’ll bet its fun to write!

      LOL, I don’t know. We went ghost hunting too visiting cemeteries at night so go figure. And yes we did see some unexplained things or we scared each other enough we thought we did. Thank you. I have put the book on back burner for now while I work on my space opera. That is the one I hope to finish this year and then maybe work on the bigfoot one.

    Big Foot does capture the imagination! How brave of you to go off hunting in the middle of the night. What was the smell like? I’m really curious.

      LOL, not brave really, we were having fun and at that age, you don’t think about what could happen but looking for an adventure and fun. Smelled like rotten eggs and dirt in some ways a very earthy smell, not a dead smell. And it lingered for hours in the areas before dissipating.

    LOL, how exciting to have been in the middle of it all. And yes, numbers make the scare much easier, but I’d have been looking over my shoulder the whole time while pushing that car out of the mud. No, better yet, I’d have done the driving! LOL

    Great old wives’ tales. I’d say most are right on and work!

      We had a lot of fun as teens and YA when I was growing up.

    Big Foot was my first introduction to the world of cryptozoology, and I’ll always love hearing about him. For the longest time, I had a story I’d torn from a magazine (can’t remember which one, but it was a big, respected one) about people’s personal experiences with him. It had an illustration of a woman dressed like a banana and being peeled by Big Foot. Also, I didn’t know about tomatoes helping prevent sunburns. Good luck on that story. It sounds great! And thank you for participating today and helping to spread the word about Bruised Souls!

    Those are the best kinds of adventures for teenagers!!! And so spooky!
    The big foot legends are fascinating – and we have a lot of unexplored forest areas!!

      Yeah they were fun as teen and YA. Did a lot of driving and cruising around the countryside.

    Even if you didn’t see him, at least you had fun scaring yourselves.

      LOL, we did. We ran the back roads, got stuck in the mud had to push the car out of knee-deep mud. There were six of us, so three sat in front three in the back of an old 67 Ford 4 door. Good thing or we would never have pushed that thing out of the mud that night.
