Monday Smells Like Onions Wrapped in a Newsletter
I promised you some new stuff, didn't I? Well, as of today here in Martha-Blog-Land, we have a signup sheet for my Author Newsletter! Applause, please~this represents the endeavors of one entire tech-impaired morning!
More on the newsletter later, but first... YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS!
The fire was getting hotter and it was everywhere, on the machines and the tables and all our work was burning up and the smoke was so thick and the smell was just terrible, black from the oil and the goods and the smell was so strong, and there was also the very horrible smell of burning hair, and all those girls were pushing and pushing together. ...You couldn't BUY a narrative voice like this. It's so genuine. My hat is off to Ms. Weber, and I look forward to picking this one up (Farrar, Straus & Giroux~2006).
I tried to get to my sister but the flames caught on my hair and I was getting burned and I had to go back so I went back to that door Mr. Kaplan had unlocked, and he was gone, there was nobody else near me now and there was nothing behind me but flames, like a wall of fire, and I went through and went up the stairs to the tenth floor and there was nobody there, they had all saved themselves already.
And as for the other thing~I've been laboring all morning figuring out what will be the best e-newsletter service to use on this blog and my site when it's launched (very soon~I've seen the beta site and I can't wait!).
I STRONGLY believe that writers ought to keep in touch with their fan base and should NEVER take them for granted! You're not just a bunch of drones putting down money for my books, you are thinking, breathing humans! (I hope so, anyway.)
So~thanks to advice from the lovely Lynn, a life coach at BloomNGrow.net, I have signed on with EzEzine. I recommend it to anyone who is planning to use a newsletter for their site. (The signup sheet will look better on my site, but Blogger made it all funky. I'll mess with it more later, but my brain is a mashed potato right now.) So~DRUMROLL, PLEASE!
