I decided awhile back I should do a newsletter, but I didn’t have anything specific in mind because I am TOTAL SHIT at marketing, and I didn’t realize I was supposed to have special stuff waiting for my subscribers the minute they got on board. I really did just think people would sign up whenever, and eventually I’d send them something, and we’d all be okay with that. Which is in fact how it’s going down, but I just want you to know that I realize now that my methods are artless and utterly without added value.
However, since it’s almost Xmas, I’m thinking I’ll send newsletter people a present: a preliminary version of the Charles/Simon story I’ve mentioned in the past. This story will eventually go into a book I’ll be asking people to pay for, possibly in altered form, but I’m pretty happy with it as it is, so I doubt it will change terribly much. It’s about 12K words and depicts an auction day completely different than Henry and Martin’s.
So this is me giving you advance warning that a thing you might want could be yours if you add yourself to my mailing list in the next few days. Since I have had a theoretical newsletter for months now without sending out a single missive, rest assured I won’t be spamming you with DG news.
The newsletter sign-up is over in the right-hand column if you’re on a computer, down below the blog posts if you’re on mobile.
