News & Updates
First off, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone reading this newsletter, and everyone who takes the time to send me messages on social media, and interact with my posts! I appreciate you all so much!
Over the last month I've made a lot of exciting updates to GhostQuest.net, and have some exciting news to share with you all!! Firstly, I'm continuing work on my Folklore and Haunted Locations Guide: Michigan, which now contains a list of almost 400 allegedly haunted locations. You can check them out by clicking here, and share your own stories by leaving a comment at the bottom of the page. Or if you know a location I may have missed, you can let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I also released four new YouTube Videos this month, and you can click the link below to watch the most recent one!! If you enjoy it, please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel for all my future creepy content updates, and leave me a comment!! It would really help me out a lot!!
I've also been posting a weekly Blog about some of the awesome, spooky locations I write about on my New York & Massachusetts pages, in addition to adding new pages for each of the major cities in each of those states! What this does is allows users to see a much smaller page with information relevant to only that city, instead of listings for the entire state. This allows me to add more details about each individual location, including pictures, a widget that allows people to "rate" the location, and a section where viewers can leave comments or share their own stories. Over time I'll be creating a page like this for each city, and eventually one for each location too! In the meantime, check out this example for my Salem, Massachusetts Page!
And now for the really exciting news!!! As many of you may remember, last year I began working on my first book series: The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide, which covers a list of allegedly haunted locations in each state throughout the United States. My first book, The Folklore & Haunted Locations Guide: New York is well on it's way to being published, and has just received its final round of edits!! Later this week I'll be meeting with my publisher at Raven's Quill Publishing to go over the final publishing schedule, which means I'll finally have a release date to share! Marissa at Raven's Quill has also designed a few different covers which she'll be showing me during our meeting, and which I'll be posting on social media for my followers to check out! I'll also be posting a poll on Patreon and Twitter where you can voice your opinion and let me know which cover you like the best!!
Last month I also reworked the GhostQuest.net Patreon Page to include some exciting new blog posts and videos, and a brand new Founder Tier! Starting now, all of my Patreon supporters will receive early access to all of my blog posts and YouTube videos, as well as getting to vote on upcoming content, and more! So you'll get to see my blog posts and videos a whole week earlier than everyone else! Plus, once I reach 25 followers on Patreon I'll be doing a monthly giveaway where you can win awesome prizes, like gift cards, event tickets, hoodies, tee shirts, autographed merchandise, and all kinds of other stuff!! Additionally, those who join our Founder Tier ($3+) will receive a special shoutout on all my blog posts and YouTube videos as a thank you!! So if you haven't already done so, please consider supporting GhostQuest.net on Patreon to help me cover some of the costs of hosting my website and delivering all this awesome content! Over the last several years GhostQuest.net has quickly become one of the largest and most valuable online resources for paranormal enthusiasts... but it's a HUGE project for just one person, and I could really use your help!
In recent months I've started posting more stories, pictures, and other fun updates on social media, which have received some great feedback from you guys; our awesome Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest followers! So first off, thank you guys for your support! I love hearing from you, and reading your comments and messages. I've also been posting some new videos to my YouTube Channel, so be sure to like and subscribe if you haven't already.
Lastly, I'd like to give a special shout out to my awesome Patreon followers (all 4 of you), who help to cover GhostQuest.net's monthly hosting costs! By making a small $1 monthly pledge you can really help me out with these costs, and for $3, you can become part of the "Founders Tier," which receives a special shoutout at the end of all my blog posts and videos as a special thank you. Believe it or not, the cost of running and maintaining such a huge website really adds up! Once I reach 25 subscribers on Patreon, I'll also be doing a special monthly giveaway, where patrons are automatically entered to win awesome prizes, like tee shirts, hoodies and apparel, gift cards, event tickets, and other awesome merchandise!
Well, that's it for the GhostQuest.net March, 2020 newsletter! Thank you all again so much for subscribing and supporting GhostQuest.net! Have a spooky Spring!
