Looking Forward to 2016

Hi folks...I invision 2016 as a year of growth for Phantoms & Monsters and other interests that I'm involved with...in particular Arcane Radio, P&M Fortean Research & Astral Perceptions International. I also want to reassure you that the newsletter will continue as a regular publication w/o subscription fees.

It would be great that readers / friends / colleagues spread the word about the newsletter. Increasing the subscriber list will make it easier to entice sponsors and encourage writers to submit their material.

For years, I've tried a variety of advertising schemes in order to raise revenue. Unfortunately...these programs tend to add inconvenience to the readers and drive away interest. Some of these advertising platforms performed very well and generated decent earnings, but significantly slowed down load times and browsing viability. So I've decided to leave it up to the readers. If you feel that I'm providing a decent product, then you determine how much it's worth to you.

I will continue posting links to Amazon.com products, in particular books, because it integrates well with the format. Anytime you use one of those links, any items you purchase while browsing Amazon.com during that session, will generate a commission to Phantoms & Monsters.

Mobile application availability of Phantoms & Monsters material will be taking a huge step forward in 2016. There will be free and fee-based applications available (will announce releases), including a few neat wrinkles.

Arcane Radio will also see technology and presentation development. Do you have suggestions? Let us know.

All in all, with current & new investigations, there should be a lot to look forward to. Thanks for reading & listening. Lon
