About

Welcome, stranger. Pull up a chair and warm yourself by the fire. The rain is torrential outside and I doubt you would get far in the dark, so you best stay a while. Let us pass the time with a story, for I have such a strange and ominous tale to tell...

Hello, my name is Michael Whitehouse, but you can call me Mike. Over the past few years I've been sharing my horror stories online with over a million readers to date. You might have read some of them: Bedtime, The Melancholy of Herbert Solomon, Forgotten Valentine, On a Hill, and a bunch of others. I've also created a horror podcast called Ghastly Tales which has been downloaded by thousands of people. Ghastly Tales also has a Youtube channel, where I've made a number of short horror films in partnership with several extremely talented individuals. It's been an amazing experience with many of my stories making it onto a whole host of "most frightening" lists. I've been overwhelmed by the response.

I've received hundreds of messages from people asking why I don't upload stories or produce audio horror content and films more often, and why I haven't finished my first novel yet. I'm a freelance writer by trade and while that gives me a good amount of flexibility in theory, in practice the vast majority of my time has been going towards that because, well, it pays the bills. After writing for clients for 12 to 15 hours straight, it's almost impossible to work on my own material.

That's where Patreon comes in.

Patreon is a site which turns you into a patron of the arts. I provide content you like, and in return, you pay whatever you want for it. For example, you could pledge $1 for every story I post. You can use Paypal or any other payment method and no money gets taken off until you receive the story. Just to underline that, I don't get a penny unless I upload the stories, audio horror, or films. You can pledge as little or as much as you like and you can cancel payments at any time.

Now, you might be asking, why should I do that if I can get your stuff for free? The truth is if I can get enough people to buy into my horror stories, then I can put much more time towards creating them, turning out a short story every week and still having time to write a couple of chapters for the novel version of Bedtime.  It's the difference between getting a handful of stories from me a year or several books full. That is what Patreon is all about, fans being able to get more of the content they love by supporting the creators who provide it.

If you want to read my stories for free, you can find everything here:

I appreciate your support and hope to be scaring the hell out of you for many years to come.

~ Mike

Come for a walk through a Glasgow park at night. Watch the trees as they gently sway. Feel the cool air as it washes over you and the statues standing silently on their plinths. Take in the view, the history - the very life of the park. And as you observe this quiet scene, ask yourself, why do I feel as though I'm being watched? You'll find the answer to that question in my next short ghost story "Dear Green Place".
