Looking forward to it :)
Bedtime is currently the number one story on Creepypasta.com, with On a Hill in second, and The Melancholy of Herbert Solomon at number eight. I’ve been feeling really ill the past two weeks and a bit down, so the fact that all of you have supported me to that degree makes me smile and look to the future. Thank you to each and every single person who has taken the time to read, share, comment, rate, or discuss my stories. It means everything to me. You’ve all given me a voice I never had before, and that is a gift I can never repay.
Been too sick this week to get much done, but I have posted a new chapter to my How to Write a Horror Story guide for anyone out there who is interested in learning my approach to horror. I’ve written a few further chapters, so I will post them soon as well, along with a new story I finished called Grinder. Hope you’re all doing well :)
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!
Once again it’s time for my monthly announcement where I whore myself out to my readers. If you enjoy the stories I write and want me to upload them more often, the best way to make this happen is to support my Patreon campaign. I’m trying to raise $500 which will guarantee 3-4 stories from me a month. How does it work? Let’s say you pledge $1, that means that when I upload a new story you automatically donate $1 to my Patreon account. You can cancel this at any time and can even put a cap on the amount where you choose to only support so many stories per month.
If I can reach my $500 target then I’ll be able to cut down my workload and focus on writing. In return, you get to be a patron of the arts and know that you helped make each and every story possible - not to mention getting several stories a month from me. This will mean the difference between me producing a few stories and several books worth a year. As a Patreon contributor you’ll receive bonus stories, not to mention free eBooks for anyone contributing over $10 per story.
To those who have already contributed, I can’t thank you enough, your support means the world to me and I hope I can repay the favour by scaring the hell out of you for many years to come :)
You can find my Patreon campaign, HERE. If you are clicking the link that means you are automatically awesome.
"Author Part II: The Nursing Home" by Michael Whitehouse
*If you haven’t read the first part of this series, you can find it here*
The next six weeks were filled with self recrimination and sleepless nights. I was continually haunted by the sound of that poor child crying in the night, and of what I could have done to protect her. Shamefully on my part, my guilt was eclipsed by the fear of what those two dreadful words seemed to promise: “You Told”. My days were increasingly engulfed by thoughts of someone watching me - eyes staring out from around corners, whispers in the dark. The paranoia was only fuelled further by the apparent lack of details; the police had released little information about the dead family, and had yet to even declare their deaths the result of murder, which I was certain they were.

Nominated for a Parsec Award!
