How do I submit my own ghost story to Castle
You can submit your story
through any of the links located throughout Castle of Spirits.com.
The easiest way
is to go now to the front page and click on the "SUBMIT YOUR OWN GHOST STORY"
link on the front page
send me stories via e-mail?
very idea of Castle of Spirits is for ghost stories to be readily
available to the public on the website, which for most, is the most
easiest and convenient (and kinda fun) way to view something regularly,
hence the ghost stories on Castle of Spirits.com can be very easily
accessed on the site and are regularly updated. The newest ghost
stories are always available off the front page. So please visit us
regularly for updated stories and you can read as many as you like for
absolutely free!! And by the way NO, we can't send you out stories via
I Submitted a ghost story:
why wasn't it accepted?
- how do I find it on the site?
- has it been accepted?
- when will it be put up/when will I see it online?
we cannot accept all ghost stories submitted to us and having the best
known ghost story site on the net requires us to be a little picky
about the stories we do publish.
There is more about this written on the "SUBMIT
STORY PAGE" which you may have looked over when you submitted
your story. You might like to go back and review the suggestions and
tips and hints for submitting your story and see that you met all the
on average usually appear within one to two months. I do sometimes get
a little behind (sometimes my life gets in the way you know!) so you
may have to wait a little longer.
During the months of Halloween, usually running from September until
November, we get bombarded with stories, enquiries, media etc. (Castle
of Spirits.com has over 2 million viewer per week!!) so your story may
take a little longer to appear.
your story is accepted for publication on Castle of Spirits.com, we
simply do not have the time to notify everyone of the acceptance and
location of their story. We've made it easy for viewers to search for
their story using one of the search boxes as seen above, or keep
visiting the website and looking through the latest stories off the very front page to see if your story
Your stories are fake! How do I know that your stories are true?
have stated a few times throughout the site that we don't know that the
stories are all true, it would be quite impossible to provide the proof
to show that every story is completely true. What we do is try to
believe in people who want to tell their own true story, and also place
other stories that are of interest and are in line with the theme of
Castle of Spirits, but may not be true, on the site for your viewing
there are a lot of people out there who really HAVE endured a scary
paranormal experience and you never know if that's the story you just
read or not.
Keep an open mind and don't believe everything you read!!
you hurry it up with the stories already on the site?
Where are the stories
What's Going on with the stories?
Why oh why aren't there any new stories?
My life is in ruins, the stories aren't updated?
I mention that I'm stressed about the lack of new stories??
Ahhhhhhhhh the problem
with the story updates.
Well now, first of all.......................don't be so impatient! LOL
did I mention that this is a FREE website?
yeah, think I did....well ok if anyone out there would like to pay to
see the stories, by all means I will sit and update the stories all day
long for you guys and hec, I'll go all night long as well....but you
know what that means don't you.....yes, you got it....your gonna have
to payyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to visit Castle of Spirits. So shut up and wait
for em LOL
Rowena does her best to keep up with the thousands of stories submitted
per month, however she does do a lot of other things such as work, work
and oh yeah.....work. You see she needs to work to support such a site
along with also running the Australian Ghost Hunters Society, attending
to family needs, feeding the dog, running around after ghosts, filming,
answering annoying e-mails, swearing...there's lots to do in a day ya
Sites like this aren't free to keep online you know and someone has to
pay for it...yes yes, you guessed right, its all up to little ol Rowena
to do it all *sigh*.
So, therefore she sometimes she has other problems or other things to
do that may be more important and cannot update the stories as fast as
- if there IS a major problem, watch out for the front page as there
will be a notice saying that you may or may not see stories updated as
quick as you'd like.
Hey you guys....you do realise if you send in a million e-mails asking
"why aren't the stories updated for (enter month here) yet?" Rowena has
to attend to these e-mails rather than updating the stories....so, if
you don't mind...give it a little time, and a little patience and
she'll get there, eventually
keep your cool and remember that Rowena always does her best to update
whenever she can as soon as she can. After all, the site has been going
for over WELL over 10 years and never really fallen too behind yet!
Can I use some
of the stories off your site?
The problem with using
stories off Castle of Spirits is:
The site is one of the most
popular and famous Ghost Story sites on the net. We have a lot of
regular viewers and dedicated fans. If you choose to use anything
(including stories) off the site and reproduce them then you may find
the fans of Castle of Spirits get angry, which makes Rowena angry and
if you haven't sought out any permission for use of the
stories........well sometimes, just sometimes, your site may be pulled
offline by your ISP.
hate to be so harsh about this but Castle of Spirits has taken well
over 10 years of my life and hard work and effort. I simply DO NOT
appreciate anything stolen off my site.
I am setting up
a Ghost Story site - how do I get stories for my site, can I use your
stories for my site?
off, to start my own site ....besides a little luck, and getting in way
way early, I first asked around ......I asked all my friends and family
if anyone had a ghost story I could use and guess what!!? Nearly every
single person had one. Whether they believed in ghosts or not, they all
had one. So if you plan on setting up a ghost story site, I suggest you
put up your own original stories that your friends and family have
supplied. As for using stories off my site, please refer to the above
I change something in my story that is on your site?
- Can I change the e-mail address
- Can my story be removed
- you can alter your story once its online.
if you submitted an e-mail address with your story, we suggest that you
use a HOTMAIL or other web based e-mail address (this information is on
the submit story page too) as you may find out you will get spammed by
all those annoying spammers that have nothing else better to do.
put a limit on the amount of times you need your story changed. Some
people think it's fun to change their e-mail address around once a
month or add more into their story (such as updates). Can I please
explain once again that I simply do not have time to continuously do
things such as this and give up my time updating the stories and
helping out others, so please be considerate with your changes :o)
If you do need your story altered or taken down please use the "CONTACT US" form and we will
alter or take it down off the site it for you, no problem.
use the search box (as mentioned above) to locate your story first and
be prepared to please supply the URL directly to your story (makes life
a lot easier for me!).
Here is my
ghost story which I've attempted to squish into your contact form
of Spirits.com only accepts stories from the "SUBMIT STORY" form.
will not accept stories any other way unless you ask first (some
exceptions are made for stories with photos/drawings or other media).
If you need to ask permission on how to submit your story please use
the "CONTACT US" form.
Can I have the
e-mail address of the person that wrote [story name here] so I can
we don't hang on to everyone's e-mail address. So unless the e-mail
address is included on the story, I cannot supply this to you. I also
cannot give you a name or any other information. The only information
given to us is already in that story. Some story submitters wish to
remain anonymous, and we like to honor that request.
friend has a really spooky story - I have a really spooky story - My
dog has a spooky story, someone who I know has a spooky story, E-mail
me back if you want it ok??
Argh, ok, ok, once again stories are only taken
through the "SUBMIT STORY"
form. Please use it! LOL
