Hey everyone!! Happy New Year!! It's 2021 already, which I can hardly believe!! This year seems like it's gone by so fast, while somehow also dragging on and on. I hope everyone had a great (and safe) holiday season despite everything going on in the world right now. For a lot of us, spooky season is still in full swing as we head further into the darkness of winter. I've decided recently that winter is the creepiest season for me... there's just something strange about it.

News & Updates
First off, I just want to say another huge THANK YOU to everyone reading this letter, and everyone who takes the time to share my posts and send me messages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! I also post pictures of a lot of these haunted locations on Pinterest, and you can check me out on YouTube for some creepy ghost stories and other spooky content! As you know, I do all of the writing, research, web development, video editing, and content creation for GhostQuest.net myself, and I appreciate your support so much!! It also really helps me out a lot when people share my posts and videos on social media, and leave comments on my blogs and videos!!
December was an exciting month for GhostQuest.net for several reasons. First off, my latest book, The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: Michigan is finally available on Amazon!! This awesome paranormal resource documents over 275 allegedly haunted places, ghost stories, urban legends, and folklore tales throughout the state of Michigan. As I've mentioned before, I do all the writing, artwork, editing, and cover design myself, so a lot of work goes into all this!!
Check out the cover I designed for my new book, too!! It might just be my favorite one yet!! What do you guys think?
My book includes some of Michigan's most infamous and notorious ghost stories, like Al Capone's Yellow Motel Murders, The Paulding Light, and the Bath Consolidated School Massacre. I also go into detail about some of Michigan's most iconic haunted cities, like Detroit, Dearborn, Flint, and Mackinac Island. And even better, you can check out my Haunted Michigan page to get a sample of what's in the book!!
You can also get a copy of my other books, The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: Massachusetts and New York from Amazon in eBook or Paperback!
And one last thing.. if you do end up checking out one of my Haunted Locations Guide books, be sure to leave a quick review on Amazon!! It helps me out so much as a new author!! It's one of the best ways to support my work, and better yet, it only takes a quick minute!! For those of you who have taken the time to leave a review for my last two books, thank you so much!!! It really helps a lot!!
And don't forget, I've also been working on a Video Series on YouTube to go along with my first book, The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: New York!! If you like my books or my ghost stories, I know you'll love these spooky videos, narrated by me!!
So here's my latest YouTube Video for those who haven't checked it out yet about the Top 16 Most Haunted Bars & Restaurants in New York, which may just be my best, spookiest video yet!
I also record episodes for my YouTube Channel early for all my $1+ Patreon Subscribers to enjoy before everyone else!! My next video is going to be about the Most Haunted Colleges & Universities in New York, and I can't wait for you guys to see it! If you haven't checked out my Patreon Page, I have a bunch of other cool stuff on there too like blog posts, polls, videos, and more! Once I hit 20 subscribers I'll begin doing monthly contests and giveaways where you can win cool stuff like books, tee shirts, event tickets, and other merchandise!
