I have plenty of things in the queue for this blog: writing playlists, reviews of writing-related books, an anecdote or two about the road that's led me to Aviario ... but right now, my focus is on something big and exciting that I have in the works: my mailing list! I'd ask you to join it right now, but the fact is: it's not ready yet, and this post's purpose is to tell you exactly why.
I know I have a lot of casual readers on Twitter and Facebook, but I want those who join my mailing list to get something beyond just the "first scoop" on what's going on. I want to get to know them, since my readers are so important to me. Beyond that, I want to give them something special. That's why it's going to take a while to prepare, and I hope to have it ready by the end of August.
Subscribers to my mailing list will receive a series of emails called Around Aviario in 30 Days. It's a projected collection of 30 short stories about the inhabitants of my tiny Connecticut city: its past, its present, and some of the more supernaturally inclined inhabitants ... the ones other residents refer to as "Those People". Some of these stories will take place outside the town lines, but will still have relevance at some point in the city's timeline. Think of it as a sort of game: finding out where each story fits into things as the books come out!
With that bit of exciting news, I'm going to get cracking on these stories. In the meantime, please enjoy yesterday's #1lineWed excerpt, and I'll write to you all again, soon!
