“Ghost Adventures” Star Nick Groff is hitting the 2012 Scarefest in full force. Groff’s new book “Chasing Spirits: The Building of the Ghost Adventures Crew” will be debuting at the Con and will be available for fans to purchase and have signed at the event.
“Chasing Spirits” gives readers a behind-the-scenes view into the forming of the Ghost Adventures Crew. Groff offers a look into his personal background in both life and the paranormal as well as taking the reader on the ride to get both the original documentary and the hugely successful Travel Channel series “Ghost Adventures” off the ground. The book will take readers into the struggles to film the original documentary on a shoestring budget and the changes it took to turn the project into a weekly show. For fans of the wildly popular show, it is a look into how Zak, Nick and Aaron met and became partners and for anyone interested in film and television projects, it is a look into the in’s and out’s of trying to get a project off the ground. The book is well written and doesn’t pull any punches. Groff is simply relating events as they happened and one gets the sense that if you went up to him and asked him to tell you the story, this is exactly how he would relate it. The book should be a great read for anyone who is already a fan of the show or those looking to learn more about the paranormal. Another great feature of the book is the “Questions Fans Ask” sidebars in which Groff addresses some of the more commonly asked fan questions in each chapter. Additional features include a history of some of the locations the Ghost Adventures Crew has investigated , a Paranormal Investigation Equipment section which details numerous pieces of investigative equipment and the of history about each item, and the Appendix, which lists a host of paranormal websites and investigators for those who are interested in learning more. “Chasing Spirits: The Building of the Ghost Adventures Crew” is a “must-read” for any fan of the show and anyone interested in the paranormal. The book is published by New American Library/Penguin Books and will be released on October 2nd, but attendees of the 2012 Scarefest can have the opportunity to pick up their copy of the book at the Lexington, Kentucky event from September 28th-30th.
Scarefest attendees will also have the opportunity to see Nick Groff perform live songs from his CD “The Other Side” at the First Annual Scarefest Concert on Saturday, September 29th at the Lexington Convention Center. Groff will also be around the entire weekend at the Scarefest Expo meeting fans and signing autographs.
