Today is Sunday and that means newsletter day. I have an author newsletter that I’ve maintained on a weekly basis for several years now, and is, if I’m being honest, one of the big reasons this blog has seen so little activity in the past while. As I said in this week’s newsletter, talking here about my writing is speaking into the void, but when I do it there, I’m know I’m talking to the people who purposely subscribed and WANT to see what I have to say.
But that doesn’t mean this blog should suffer. Hell, I could use this space to bring more people to the newsletter, which you can subscribe to right HERE.
I should warn you, though, I say “fuck” a lot in my newsletter. Because it’s my newsletter. I got an unsubscribe once and under “reason given” they put “inappropriate content” and I remember thinking, “Um, it’s MY newsletter, it’s got my name on it and it’s written by me. Shouldn’t I be the one to decide it the content is inappropriate? And if I’m talking about ME, what could be more appropriate…?” And then I stopped caring because that person wasn’t going to buy any books anyway, and I guarantee they only got there in the first place through the Prolific Works site, which gives away free ebooks in exchange for newsletter sign-ups. So, whatever. They got their free book.
And that really is the best place to learn what I’m working on, what I’m going to be working on, what goals I’ve set, how I’m progressing on said goals, and to see my junk. Every week I show and tell another item of interest from my collection. This week it was my RUN-DMC Funko Pop! collection.
I do intend to keep up on this page, but the newsletter really is the best place to keep actually UP TO DATE. It’s free, it’s weekly, it’s HERE.
I hope to see you there. And also keep coming back here so I have a reason to keep posting.
