Postcards. Long before my love of reading developed into a love for writing, I was a letter-writer. 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.”
My trove of stationary takes up two boxes in the storeroom. My collection of stamps is a testament to two decades of hording. And whenever we travel, my first destination in any shop is the postcard spinner. When it was time to start telling people about my stories, I began creating postcards. They’re for promotional mailings … for giving away at book tables … and for you if you’d like one!
This is 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? 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 from afar. 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.
