How’s everyone’s week going? Looking forward to the weekend? I know I am. It isn’t supposed to rain Friday and Saturday! I mean, it’s Illinois, so it’s going to be freezing, but at least it won’t rain. It’s been so cold and gray here lately. I have a hard time with gray, rainy seasons. How about you?
And now for something completely different. Something exciting I have planned to launch within the month is my newsletter! *Que bells and whistles*
You really should sign up for my newsletter. It’s going to have lots of fun content. Exclusive content. Content you can’t get anywhere else on the interwebz.
What content is this, Haylie? Why do you keep saying content?
Well, for starters, I’ll have updates on my writing and publication journey.
But Haylie, can’t we just read your blog for updates?
Well, you can, but remember how I said the content was EXCLUSIVE?! This blog is shifting gears. I’ll be featuring current reads, current mood, current distractions, etc. But the really good stuff, the “in the know” stuff, will be in my newsletter.
Yes, my newsletter will feature bi-monthly read-alongs! Have you ever wanted to read books with your favorite author? That author being me, of course. Well, let’s read together! Every other month, I’ll select a book based on recommendations you guys give to me on Instagram and Facebook. We’ll read the book together (a few chapters a week), and at the end of the two months, we’ll have a huge book-wrapup on my social media where we can geek out, talk about our favorite characters, moments, plot twists, etc. It’s going to be so so so much fun!
Also also: Chapter sneak peeks!
Only my newsletter subscribers will get exclusive sneak peeks at my upcoming WIP’s. Want to know what happens before anybody else? Want to read spoilers and brag smugly to all your friends? You better sign up for my newsletter.
Also also also (do you sense a Monty Python thing going on here? I sure am.): SWAG!
Only newsletter subscribers will be eligible to win signed copies and ARC’s. Heck yes!
This sounds fabulous, Haylie! Sign me up!
Hold your horses, buckeroo. The Most Newslettery Newsletter To Ever News Or Letter isn’t live yet. I’ve gotta build hype. People in the publishing industry are all about The Hype.
BUT you can help me build The Hype.
How, Haylie? What can we little ol’ blog readers do?
Well, for starters, you can follow me on social media. Links are at the bottom of the page. You can share my newsletter related posts in your status updates and stories. You can get everybody you know on your social media channels excited. You can spread the love near and far!
I’ll be doing a newsletter launch giveaway on Instagram. You’re going to want to be involved. Your friends are going to want to be involved. You mom will want to be involved. My mom won’t be involved, because she isn’t on Instagram. Sorry, Mom.
So, come on, faithful blog readers! Let’s build The Hype!
I’ll update you guys when we’re going to go live, and look out for the giveaway on Instagram.
