Hey everyone! It's February already, which means we're already through the first full month of 2021! I hope this year is going better than last year so far for everyone, and I hope everyone had a great (and safe) New Year despite everything going on in the world right now. Here in New England, the trees are still bare, the sun sets early, and spooky season is still in full swing for some of us!!

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! 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!!
As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as much this last month... but that doesn't mean I haven't been hard at work rolling out some exciting new changes and updates in the background!!
So what's new? Last month I decided to take some time away from updating my Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: Texas page to scour the internet for haunted locations I hadn't added to my database yet. So far I've added hundreds of new haunted locations among all 50 states in my haunted database, which has turned into quite a lengthy project... though it's definitely worth the time!! Some of these locations I've discovered sound so interesting, I can't wait to go back and write about them later!!
As I go through each haunted state adding locations, I've also decided to make some updates to the website's background code so that things load faster, and look better. These changes will also make it so that I can add a "search" feature to GhostQuest.net sometime in the future. Let's start 2021 off looking and feeling fresh!!
Unfortunately though as some of you have noticed, that means I have less time to write about the locations, so I've been posting a lot less. I'm hoping by the end of the month I'll be finished finding new locations, and can return to making new videos and working on my Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: Texas.
And after all this extra work, I might be able to move GhostQuest.net up a notch from "one of the internet's largest paranormal databases," to "the internet's actual largest paranormal database." It's a milestone I've been shooting for now for quite some time, and hope that soon GhostQuest will be the #1 online resource for paranormal investigators and enthusiasts. And I couldn't have done it without you guys!! So thank you all again so much for taking the time to support me and my work, especially those of you who support me financially on Patreon (all 4 of you)!! After losing my job last year the donations help me out so much when it comes to keeping GhostQuest.net up and running! Thank you guys all so much!!!
On that note, my YouTube Channel where I do some awesome, spooky ghost story narrations is also on the back burner until I finish up this project. Although I didn't release a new video on my YouTube, I did release a new one exclusively for my awesome Patreon followers, which you can access for just $1! For those of you who don't follow me on Patreon, I'll be posting it to my YouTube Channel in the next week or two, so keep an eye out for that, and be sure to subscribe if you haven't already!! And for those of you who haven't checked out last month's video, here's a link below!!
It's about the Top 16 Most Haunted Restaurants & Bars in New York, and it may just be my 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 about the Most Haunted Colleges & Universities in New York is already up, 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! My $5 patrons also get free copies of all my upcoming eBooks, and for $10 you get free signed copies of all my upcoming paperback books as well!! To those of you guys who do support me on Patreon (all 4 of you!!) I just want to say a special THANK YOU for helping out, especially in these trying times! I work really hard to put out the amount of content I do on GhostQuest.net, and your contributions towards my hosting and production costs help out so much!!
Well, that's it for the GhostQuest.net February, 2021 newsletter! Thank you all again so much for subscribing and supporting GhostQuest.net! Have a spooky February!
