A SUTTON-BASED magazine which explores the paranormal, horror films and much more is gaining a world-wide audience thanks to a decision to go digital.

Paul Stevenson, who is the editor and founder of Haunted Digital Magazine, had been running a print version of the magazine for more than two years from his home in Sutton.

But increased printing and distribution costs meant that earlier this year Paul took the decision to publish online.

He said: “It is doing well. Unlike with print it is not stuck on the shelf waiting to be bought. It’s available all over the world.”

Paul, who is a father to four-year-old twin daughters, has previously worked as a salesman and a freelance writer before deciding to create the magazine.

“I’ve always had a healthy interest in the paranormal,” he says. “I remember watching Dracula when I was a kid and I have always liked hammer horror.”

Paul describes himself as ‘a sceptic who is willing to be convinced’ and the magazine covers everything from horror films to historical features and ghost hunting. He is also keen to get young writers onboard so that they can see their work published.

The magazine is available on tablets and smart phones and can be downloaded via the website www.haunteddigitalmagazine.com. You can also follow on Twitter @hauntedmagazine.

Anyone who downloads it will be sent a print version of one of the back copies. All you have to do is write CHAD PROMOTION in the comments box. Magazines will be sent out on a first come first served basis.
