So… why another newsletter?
I’ve tried making a newsletter a few times in the past and not really had a lot of success (mainly because of my lack of consistency.) The last time I sent one out, enough people* reported it as spam so Mailchimp locked my account.
I may have ragequit at the time. And lost all my email addresses. I’m not proud of this.
But personally, I’ve had problems with newsletters mainly because I have trouble looking at my author brand objectively - ie, I haven’t known how to handle information delivery- what’s the difference between blog, podcast, patreon email, and newsletters? Do I put the same stuff out on each one? Vary it?
But I am not taking into account the fact that Y'ALL are very different people. Some want to read a blog, OR subscribe to a podcast, OR support via Patreon, OR subscribe to a newsletter. So if you don’t want to/can’t support my Patreon, but you like newsletters, how will you get my info? So I’m trying it again.
What will you get in this newsletter? I will be putting in news about me and my projects, coupons, giveaways, and other opportunities, and, interestingly enough, this platform (Revue) is connected to my Twitter so that I can grab interesting things from there to include here. I can also easily link videos and podcasts to make sure you’re connected to all the stuff I’m doing. I think that’s pretty cool.
So welcome to my newsletter. I hope you subscribe. It’s free for now, but I may do a paid version in the future. No idea. This is new for me. But if you want to support me, you can do so by using any of these fine platforms:
Patreon (for exclusive content, early release of podcasts, and podcast archives)
Jemi (for exclusive, personalized pep talks)
Ko-Fi (if you just wanna buy me a coffee)
- Buy my books from an indie bookstore or a powerful monopoly (affiliate link)
*my newsletters are opt-in. Always. I will never just throw you on a list, because I hate it when it happens to me. I once just exchanged an email with an author and then boom, I was on her list. I did not appreciate that.
