I send a periodic newsletter–only 3 to 4 issues a year, so no need to worry about a mailbox full of spam–keeping people up-to-date on what’s going on with my work. And to make it worth my subscribers’ time and effort, I run contests with prizes specially chosen to make booklovers happy.
Important note: Because my service provider is dedicated to preventing spam, you will receive an e-mail asking you to click on a link to confirm your subscription. If you don’t do this, you won’t be subscribed to the e-newsletter, nor entered in the contest, and the spam police will not let me remind you. Somehow, professional spammers do not seem to operate under these constraints. Sigh.
Back to the good stuff. All my subscribers are automatically entered in all my contests, for as long as they stay subscribed. There’s no rule against repeat winners, so stick around and maybe you’ll win something fabulous!
