Thank you for your interest in my newsletter! I promise not to bore you. I might even make you laugh. And I’ll only send it to you once a month OR if something big happens that I know you won’t want to miss. If you don’t like it, you can opt out at any time, and I’ll never share your address. C’mon. Give it a try. Life is too short to live with regrets.

On every page: social media buttons, buy buttons (or links to the book page where the buy buttons are), and newsletter sign-up


Buy buttons on every page are of course very important. I checked with the publisher and these are the links I should have. I’d like to not put Amazon first, even if it is first alphabetically. I want to start with S&S, then Indiebound, and then do the rest alpha:

Oh, I tend to like Serif more. But it depends on context.



this author I’m friendly with has a nice, clean site that gives good information. It also has a few books and links to other writings without feeling busy. And it provides links to downloads of the author photo and the cover art, which I thought was smart. Anyway, FYI...http://www.joannarakoff.com

There’s a strong visual element in his books, so this is heavy on that, but it’s still clean and also well-written. He doesn’t seem to have a newsletter, and that is apparently really important. I’ll talk more about that when I send you those long-promised notes. . .http://www.ransomriggs.com/index.php
