Email List Incentive: Short Story

I've been trying to think of a way to encourage people to sign up for my email list so that I can inform them when I release a new book. In honor of this, I wrote a short story to give as a gift to anyone who signed up.

Disclosure: this is a short story, not a novel, or novella. It won't take very long to read. I placed it on Amazon because their formatting system was the easiest to use, but I don't expect most people to want to pay $.99 for a story that will take ten minutes to read (that's the minimum amount Amazon allows you to charge for an eBook). I put it up purely so that I could gift a Kindle version to any one who signed up for my email list.

The Baby and the Bacon

That said, if Kindle is not your preferred reading format, let me know, and I'll email you a pdf or word doc. (I will email you asking which format you prefer.).

This is not a spammy email thing, either. I plan to use it  only to announce new publications or events (if I ever get around to a brick and mortar book signing).

So sign up below by entering your email address and wait for a message for me asking what format you'd like your short story. And yes, that is my daughter on the cover. She likes bacon.



  1. Thanks for sharing with #SmallVictoriesSundaylinky. I know how hard it is to gain email subscribers! Good luck, my family LOVES bacon too!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. Yeah, the love my younger daughter shows for bacon is borderline obsessive.
