There has been a lot of talk lately amongst authors and readers about newsletter emails. More specifically, readers being inundated with them.
As authors, we try to find ways to engage with our readers.
We LOVE you and want to keep you informed and up to date on our books, upcoming releases, etc. It isn’t easy trying to reach everyone. So we utilize Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and yes, newsletters.
In a recent discussion with a reader, I learned that she rarely opens any of the dozens of newsletters she receives on a daily basis. I have to think there are lots more readers out there, just like her. You all simply do not have time to pour through dozens of emails every day. Heck, I don’t have time to pour through all of the one’s I’ve signed up for either.
I do have many readers who will always read my monthly newsletter email. But I have far more who don’t, and that is okay! I’m not knocking you and I’m not knocking the use of newsletter emails.
So I’ve decided to make a few changes for 2017. I’m only sending out newsletter emails on a quarterly basis. However, I am going to be using my blog and Facebook to communicate with you on a regular basis. Oh, it might not be quite as pretty as my newsletter, but I think it will be easier for everyone, including me, lol
Blog Vs. Newsletter
So if you would like to stay up to date with new releases, upcoming events, etc., you can follow me here on my Cheeky Wench Blog. Just click the ‘subscribe’ button on the right hand side of the webpage, enter your email, and you’re all set.
In the future, when I run a contest, I won’t force you to sign up for my newsletter. I’ll have other easy things for you to do to participate and enter.
