Turkey, Contests, and Flu Bugs...oh my!


Hello all,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

P.R. had to leave early Thanksgiving Day to head to India for business. We had an impromptu Thanksgiving dinner the night before so we wouldn't miss out completely. I realized we were in basically the same situation last year. I hope this doesn't become a trend.

I know I had mentioned posting a contest on Thanksgiving Day but to be honest, there are two reasons I didn't do that.

One, this flu is still kicking my behind. I'm exhausted and dragging around trying to get things accomplished.

Two, I can’t figure out how I want to set up this contest. I want to increase my mailing list but I’m not sure the best way to go about that. I’m working on this right now.

Being on my mailing list is a good thing. I never send out more than three emails per month. NEVER! I only get three mass emails per month on my current web hosting plan and I’m not going to be upgrading that anytime soon. I’m putting my reserve cash into other advertising methods.

I know the prize will be an autographed copy of a book, in one of the new book bags, with one of the new pens, and my promotional material about the serials. I just have to figure out what people need to do to enter. Signing up for the email list is the basic easy way to go but I wanted to have it with bring a friend somehow. I’ll keep working on this tonight.

For now I need to get some more writing done. I have miles, or rather, chapters to go before I sleep.

Happy Thanksgiving!! I’m thankful for each and every one of you!

Stephen
