Mindie Burgoyne has been able to attract over to 4000 fans to her Facebook Fan Page for Haunted Eastern Shore. She attributes the interest in the ghost tours and the unexpected success of the book (first printing sold out in five weeks) to her ability to build up the fan base through social media. She sees the spin-off successes, like the ghost tours as a result of enthusiastic fans being able to interact with each other on a topic they’re crazy about. “Fans have been organizing their own tours to the sites mentioned in the book, and I’ve had several requests to guide ghost tours, and the first tour we did in Crisfield was so successful, we added Dorchester, and now Caroline."

The Caroline Heritage tour is being co-sponsored by the Caroline Economic Development Corporation's Office of Tourism. Seating is limited to forty people, and spots have sold very quickly in the past so make your reservation today.
