My Email List: Once You Unsubscribe, I Can’t Put You Back On It
Recently, I noticed that a couple of people have been signing up for my email list after they unsubscribed to it. I don’t know if any of you who unsubscribed are reading this or not, but once someone unsubscribes to my email list, MailChimp won’t let me put you back on the list. They have a no tolerance policy for spam. (I hate spam, so I’m glad they don’t tolerate it. I don’t want to keep receiving emails when I unsubscribed from someone’s list.)
It’s possible that people hit unsubscribe by accident and then want back on the list. If that’s the case here, then I’m sorry but I can’t add you back on the list. Once you unsubscribe, you’re unsubscribed for good. I apologize for this, but there’s nothing I can do about that.
What Do You Do If You Accidentally Unsubscribed?
You can join my private Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/830058207023257/. Then, if you let me know you had accidentally unsubscribed from my email list on MailChimp, I’ll know to post the additional scene I send out to people on that list.
Marriage by Bargain Series
Book 1: The Viscount’s Runaway Bride
This one will continue where Marriage by Arrangement left off, meaning we will see Warren and Iris a lot in the first book, The Viscount’s Runaway Bride. The first book is already up on pre-order. Though I put April 2017 as the release date, I expect to have it out before the end of the year.
(This book featured Lord Worsley who was Warren’s friend in The Earl’s Wallflower Bride.)
You can pre-order it by going to this link.
Books 2 and 3
I already have Book 2 and Book 3 in this series planned, but I don’t have it on pre-order yet. Both books 2 and 3 will feature the two ladies Iris hated most: Miss Loretta Bachman and Miss Celia Barlow. Now, some of you will be asking, “Weren’t those two ladies awful?” The answer is yes. But despite their flaws, they are redeemable, given the right gentlemen.
Will there be a fourth book? I don’t know yet.
Marriage by Fate Series
Due to the fact that Regencies are my best selling books, I’m going to work on two Regency Series and only one historical western series at the beginning of 2017. As much as I’d like to say the amount I make off each particular book doesn’t matter, the truth is, it matters a lot. I write what sells. (Which is why I haven’t touched contemporary in a long time.)
So after I finish Groom For Hire, I’m going to work on this Regency series.
Book 1 will be The Reclusive Earl
This is going to be Opal’s book. Opal is Warren (aka. Lord Steinbeck)’s sister in The Earl’s Wallflower Bride. I’m pairing her up with Lord Farewell, who was briefly mentioned at the end of The Earl’s Wallflower Bride. He was the one that a couple of gentlemen were making fun of.
I don’t have a cover for this book yet, but I do have it on pre-order at a couple of sites: Kobo, iBooks, and Smashwords. At this time, it’s not on Barnes & Noble or Amazon. Also, I don’t have a Book Launch page for it yet.
I haven’t planned out any of the other books in the series yet.
Till Death Do Us Part Series
This is the historical western one. I plan to work on this when done with the Chance at Love Series.
Book 1 will feature Sep (Joel Larson’s brother in-law). It’ll be called His Auctioned Bride. I don’t know the details yet, but I do know Sep bids on a woman in order to rescue her.
Book 2 will feature Mark Larson (who is Amanda and Richard’s son). Book 3 will feature Anthony Larson (also Amanda and Richard’s son). I haven’t come up with a plot yet.
So that’s what’s planned in the near future for early 2017-summer 2017.
Are you adding people manually when they give you the email address on the sign-up page, or does that go directly to MailChimp? If you are doing it manually, it thinks you’re adding someone back who opts out. Like you said, they are very picky about spam. But if it’s set to go straight to MailChimp when they sign up (mine does), it should let them do it.
Do your Regencies do a LOT better than your westerns? I would say Regency romance is one of the most popular genres out there.
I have been doing it manually because I don’t know how to set it up so that MailChimp will do it for me. How do you get it to do that?
I’ve also noticed that even after I sign people up, they say they aren’t getting the email. That could be going to their spam folder. Other than that, I have no idea what is going on.
Regencies do way better. The difference is huge. There’s no competition between the two. I’d say Regencies do 70% better. Westerns are okay. But contemporaries are just flops. I know contemporaries can be popular, but it’s not my platform, so I’m not surprised they don’t do well. But I am surprised by how much more Regencies will bring in than historical westerns. I’m going to do two Regency series at a time and one historical western next year. Usually, I do more historical westerns, but the money isn’t there to sustain that kind of work.
