Contests & E-newsletter
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!
The prize for my current contest is an old favorite--get a character named after you! I'll be starting work on on the ninth Faye Longchamp mystery soon, and I'll be naming people left and right. Maybe one of those characters will have your name...but be aware that I don't promise that you'll be a nice person, nor that you'll even stay alive. I have "killed" a contest winner in the past. Well, I killed a couple of them, actually. Enter at your own risk...
