Thought for the Day

 
 

 
 
I’m going to be quick here and maybe none of them will even notice this wee little post But this is a plea to all authors.
 
Please, please do not send daily emails.  I follow a few authors for new releases and updates and a few, thankfully a very few, seem to think it’s their duty to send daily emails.
 
DON'T!
As a reader I don’t want to hear from you every day.  In fact if you are one of those who do send daily emails, I WILL NOT read any more of your books.   

The emails are like a weed that keeps coming back every day.  I delete it without even opening it and sure enough the next day there is another one. 
I think 1 email a week is more than enough but my preference is just to send me, the reader, an email when something is happening; you have a new book coming out soon, the release of a book is being delayed for some reason, your bestie is having her first book published soon and you want to share the good news.  That’s the only kind of thing I want an email sent to me.  If I want closer contact, I will follow you on Facebook – that is until I get mine deleted, or Twitter or Instagram.  Sending me daily emails is pretty much the last thing you should do.
 
Now speaking of author emails, I just now got a good example of an author who does it right; Julie Kriss.  Anyone who comes here on a regular basis knows I vacuum up her books like a brand new Dyson – cordless don’t know you. 
 
She sends emails when a new book is coming out and she sent one this morning.  I’d barely finished reading the email before I jumped on over to Amazon to pre-order it.   Nice cover eh? Should be out in just a few days and the minute it's uploaded is the minute I'll start reading it.
 
 
 
 





 
 
 She also announced that Drive Me Wild,
the first book in this series is on for 99 cents.  Warning, I’m about to use some subliminal messaging here.




Buy it, it’s great book.  Buy it today.  Buy it. Do it, do it now.  Order this book



'til later

I am so with you on this! There are the authors who send a monthly newsletter--most of them just chatty, because they only release one/two books a year, so they time the newsletters to coincide with release. Then there are those who only send a newsletter when they have a release--however often that may be (once a year? twice? five? but only when a book is up for preorder, and with release dates set).

And then...then there are those who send email after email after email about the same book, until, by the time it releases, I'm no longer reading the emails nor do I want to read the book.

I ended up on this one author's newsletter list because I think I entered a contest and, I wish I were joking, I got 12 newsletters in less than 2 weeks. I just...WHY?!?!?!

Newsletters can be great but honestly I don't give a crap unless you 1) have a new book out 2) want to announce a sale or 3) have some sort of special event to announce. Other than that? I. Don't. Care. Spend time writing more books. Please and thank you.
