Authorial Endeavor #014. I’ve always been fond of mail, mailboxes, postcards, letters, and the like. Perhaps that’s why a postal theme often crops up in my stories. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I love sending and receiving “real mail.” With that in mind, I thought I’d make a friendly little offer to readers. Do you like story art? Might a postcard brighten your day? Would you mind if one or two of my characters showed up in your mailbox?
Plans are in the works for a postcard for The Hidden Deep, the second book in the Threshold Series. There will also be a short story releasing soon called Angels All Around, and I’ve arranged with the illustrator for a little something extra that I can put on postcards! (Hint: It’ll feature a dashing, young mailman!)
There’s no real catch. All I need from you is an address. I will not hand over your name/address to anyone else. It’s safe and sound with me. Unless you specify otherwise, I would keep your information on a list for future postcard mailings. From time to time, especially when I travel, random people on my mailing list will receive postcards. Just for fun. Because I like fun. Let’s limit the story-related postcards to one of each kind per household. That means you can request one for each book and story for as long as supplies last. If I run out, I’ll update this page. I’m happy to mail these to you, your kids/grandkids, or a friend you’d like to tell about the series. If you’d like to be added to a virtual mailing list, I can do that as well. Every so often, I’d email to let you know when a short story is published or a book is releasing. Nothing spammish. Just 3-4 emails a year, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
