First, I want to thank everyone who is reading this blog. I really appreciate it! In my stats, it looks like a LOT of people are reading every week, which is both surprising to me and flattering. I promise next weekend I’ll get back to posting prose about things which are more interesting, but this week I want to send out a little thank-you to everyone who’s reading by way of a little contest. (Maybe that’s not how blogs are theoretically supposed to work, but I’m going to do it anyway. I’m new at this.)
I have copies of all three Houston Poetry Fest anthologies in which I’ve been published (including this year’s), and I’m offering a signed copy of each to three lucky readers who subscribe to this blog in the next week. That’s right, between today (October 16th) and next Sunday (October 23rd), subscribe to this blog — and get as many people as you know who might be interested to do the same. At the end of this week-long period, I’ll put all my subscribers’ names into a hat and draw three, and those three will win one of the aforementioned signed copies. Yay! You can get an extra shot at winning one of them if you convince others to subscribe as well. (Sure, why not?) You’ll have to let me know you’ve done that, of course.
You might be wondering how to subscribe? There’s a widget on the menu bar just to the right. Your right. Yup, right there. —>
It should be pretty self-explanatory. You can enter your email address and then get an email whenever I post something. (Usually once a week, on the weekends when I’m slightly less frantic, just like all of you, probably.)
Thanks again to all of you for your kind support! Sometimes watching my blog stats sort of makes my day.
Best of luck. My next post will be about spiders.
