1. I recently moved my email subscriber list from Feedburner to MailChimp. Let me know if you have any problems with the way the posts are showing up in your Inbox. And, as always, it’s easy to unsubscribe if you need to–and I promise never to share your email addresses or spam you in any way. You get no more than what you signed up for.
2. If you look at the sidebar on the right, you’ll find that you can now sign up for my newsletter. This is a low-frequency newsletter that goes out only when I have a new release, along with a Smashwords coupon code. I haven’t decided if I should do any newsletter-exclusive content–maybe a free short story once in a (very great) while? What do you think? What do you like in an author newsletter?
Once again, I respect your privacy and will never share your email address with any other person or entity, or spam you.
3. Check out this fan-made parody trailer of a non-existent Magic School Bus movie. Carlos, Dorothy Ann, Arnold and the rest have grown up and moved on from their crazy adventures with Miss Frizzle.
But the Magic School Bus has one last field trip in store for them…
No problem at all with the post in my Inbox.
As for the newsletter, that sounds great, especially with the coupon link. A short story once in a while would be really cool, as an incentive to subscribe, and a fun way to get to know more of your work!
Thanks for your input, Kirsten!

The inbox is good. I signed up the day that form showed up and I’m excited about what’s coming. Personally, when it comes to an author newsletter, I like to know what publications are forthcoming, coupons are awesome, exclusive snippets and/or stories even better, and I really enjoy Q&A or story behind the story or character stuff. I’m a fangirl at heart, what can I say?
Thanks for the input! I will definitely keep this in mind for newsletter content!
