FRESNO, Calif. – In his new book “Paranormal Investigations: The Proper Procedures and Protocols of Investigation for the Beginner to the Pro” (published by iUniverse) author and retired Marine Chad Stambaugh takes readers into a controversial world: the supernatural.
“Paranormal Investigations” shows both the beginner and the professional when and how to correctly operate the different types of equipment integral to a paranormal investigation: cameras, camcorders, voice recorders, digital video recorders, EMF detectors, dowsing rods, pendulums and more. In addition, Stambaugh details the correct procedures for conducting both public and private investigations, including how to deal with clients, what to look for, how to look for it, and how to document an investigation.
An excerpt from “Paranormal Investigations”:
“I’ve taken the best ideas and methods and put them together in what I believe to be a concise and proper way an investigation should be handled. And I’m not talking about the high-profile celebrities on TV who, in my opinion, has lost their way due to the stardom that their shows have given them. If you watch these shows, you’ll notice all kinds of different ways to perform an investigation. Some are good, some are very wrong and dangerous, and some are even just downright ridiculous.”
“People are more and more seeing and sharing their ghost stories,” Stambaugh says. “Even if they never go on an actual ghost investigation, I think readers are interested to see how it’s really done.”
