"Home Haunting for Mere Mortals" A How-To Book
This 210 page book is ready to publish. It's a complete guide to create an amazing Halloween event, LARP or home haunt.
There has long been a need for a definitive book to help someone create an outstanding Halloween event, walk-through haunt or even a LARP (Live Action Role Play) event. This needed to be more than a simple project book and needed to teach design concepts and give you inspiration to "think outside the box" and create new things. This book needed to be valuable to a beginner or an advanced craftsman. It should provide techniques that only require basic tools found in a handyman's garage, and not require an electronics lab or machinist's shop!
This is the book I WISH I could have had when I got started making my haunt!!!! The book will help you create a spook-tacular haunted event, and save you tons of time and money!!!
My name is Roger Hayes and I've been running my award-winning haunt, Hayes Haunt, for many years. My haunt has been featured in local newspapers numerous times and even received the Home Haunter's "Best Walk Through Haunt" award in 2011. I love Halloween and all things creepy and scary!!!
I've been writing and developing the information in this book for over six years. The book is finally complete and ready to print! It's chock-full of ideas and methodology, and features over 800 photos and illustrations. This 8 1/2 x 11 soft bound book teaches you how to:
- Design a haunt from scratch.
- Make a custom haunt layout
- Direct foot traffic through your haunt
- Add details to give your haunt a sense of realism
- Use lighting to enhance and set the moods
- Build a variety of coffins
- Build a monster from head to toe
- Build an entire graveyard
- And MUCH MUCH MORE!!
We're super excited about this project! But in order to get this information out to haunt enthusiasts everywhere, we need your help. Your very survival in the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse may depend upon it!

Risks and challenges
There is little risk in supporting our project. If we don't achieve our goals, then backers are not out any money.
