What's in the newsletter?
Why would you subscribe to an author's newsletter? I know why I want you to subscribe: I want to keep you apprised of what I'm working on and build relationships with readers like you. But does the thought of something else landing your inbox make you cringe?
Let me share a few reasons why you might want to subscribe to my monthly newsletter:
Excerpts, Epilogues, and Deleted Scenes
Ever wonder if there was anything cut from the final version of the book you liked? Some fun scene that maybe wasn't necessary? What about an epilogue that filled in a little more detail about that HEA? Or a sneak peak at an opening chapter of my work in progress? I don't share these sorts of things on social media; they're only for newsletter subscribers.
Newsletter subscribes automatically receive the unpublished epilogue to Two More Days at Netherfield, (now at a lower price!) and this year newsletter subscribers received in their inbox a Nine Ladies epilogue, a Nine Ladies cut scene, and an excerpt of chapter two of the book I plan to release in early 2022. These scenes and epilogues aren't shared anywhere else.
Contests, Stories, and Giveaways
In July's newsletter, subscribers will have the chance to enter a contest to name a minor character in my next full-length Pride and Prejudice variation! There will be a link in July's email so only subscribers can enter.
I plan to run subscriber-only giveaways too for the holiday novella and full-length I have coming out next. Would you like the chance to win my latest release?
Last year, subscribers received my short story The Gentlemen are Detained before it went on sale. Maybe I'll make it free again and tell subscribers in an email ...
Sales and Release Dates
Of course, your inbox is where I tell readers about any sales of previously released books, when new books go on presale, and release dates for those new HEAs.
I've also done surveys to find out what type of JAFF readers like and where they read it, I talk a little about me and a lot about Jane Austen, and I share blog posts and other things I'm reading and working on.
I usually send out a newsletter the first Tuesday of every month and I'd love it if you welcomed me into your inbox. (Okay, sometimes summer months and November and December get combined, LBR.) I have fun contests, excerpts, and giveaways coming up and I'd love to stay connected. Click here to subscribe.
