Newsletters and Other Madness

My short stories are starting to be published in anthologies! That’s exciting in and of itself, but the fact has brought to light a serious short-coming in my career planning: I haven’t planted and nurtured a newsletter list! And now I need two of them *headdesk*

This is what happens when you have a split personality and write under two names. Of course, it’s also what happens when you have your head down writing and forget to pay attention to the realities of business!

So, for the past week or so, I’ve been scrambling to decide which mail carrier to use (there are several excellent ones out there) and whether I want two lists or if one will do. The very thrifty Scot in my gene pool advocates for one list, but the practical Brit in my lineage scoffs. Why bother with dual pen names if you’re just going to lump everything into one newsletter?

And so two newsletters were born!

Each will be for special announcements only (new releases, special sales, exciting news, and reader perks) and each features an exclusive, published-nowhere-else FREE story for its subscribers 😀

Here’s the scoop:
Debbie Mumford writes for adults – romantic fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction … all sorts of things. She’s offering a contemporary paranormal romance set in Yellowstone National Park as her incentive: “Reality Bites.” Click here for Debbie’s newsletter.

Deb Logan writes for middle grade and young adult, or anyone who’s young at heart! Almost all of Deb’s tales are contemporary fantasy / paranormal. Deb is offering a modern day fairy tale complete with a prince and princess…or two: “Beauty or Butterface?” Click here for Deb’s newsletter.

In other news, I’ve expanded my “Spun Yarns” imprint! I’m now publishing individual short stories as well as collections. My most recent releases are:

DreamFlying-2x3SilverTipped-Cover-2x3Spinning-Cover-2x3HighLine-2x3

That last one is so new, it doesn’t have a link! Be sure to look for it (and all of my stories!) at your favorite e-tailer 😀

  1. Whoo, newsletters, something else in the WPM category (Wayyyyyyyyyy Past Me).
    But those covers are terrific! Grab the eye, all of them.

    • Thanks for the cover compliment, Will! I’m really pleased with how each of those turned out 😀

      Don’t rule newsletters out. One of these days you’ll decide to try one *lol*

  2. Way to go. I’ll definitely sign up as soon as I’m back from my health resort.
