'Phantoms and Monsters' Needs Your Help!

I have never been good at asking for anything. In the past, I've posted mundane requests for donations and without much success...though, I truly appreciate the few donations I did receive. Now the situation has turned a bit more serious. Frankly, 'Phantoms and Monsters' cannot survive under the current format unless I can monetarily justify the effort, expense and time I'm putting into it. For 4 years I have continued to provide free up-to-date paranormal and alternative information...hopefully to the satisfaction of my readers.

Yes...I know I promised that the newsletter would remain a free service, but that may not be possible in the near future if my situation does not change. If I do go to a paid subscription format (NOTE: Kindle subscribers already pay) the blog and newsletter would no longer be free and the wiki would be shutdown. The other possibility is that I'd simply stop posting the blog, period. I do not want to do this...I enjoy the current arrangement. But times are tough for all of us and the circumstances dictate action.

How much do you enjoy receiving 'Phantoms and Monsters'? Is it worth a few bucks for a daily update of the strange and unusual occurrences in our world? Like I stated previously, I am not good at asking (or pleading) for anything...let alone money. There are several ways you can show your support. You can donate through PayPal ('Donate' buttons are located on the blog or go to the PayPal homepage and send the donation to my user email - ), send funds by mail or you can place an order through our online autograph shop (NOTE: 'Phantoms and Monsters' readers will receive a 20% discount plus an additional signed item I'm sure you'll enjoy when you place an order)

I truly hope you will consider endorsing 'Phantoms and Monsters' continued free service to the public. Thanks...Lon
