I’m a writer. For money I mostly write about things like water distribution rights, health policy, social housing and other things for organisations who pay me for the research and writing work.
But I’d like to complete the shift to being a purely creative writer, who makes a living by selling stories I want to tell.
I’ve written a non-fiction book on bdsm, and two novels. I’ve put off the actual selling part of the writer’s job, because although I’ve sold many other products for paying customers, self-promotion doesn’t come naturally to me.
But you can help me, and it won’t cost you a cent. Please subscribe to this blog!
There’s a subscription note at the top of my right-hand sidebar. If you can’t see the sidebar, just click the Jerusalem Mortimer banner above, and it’ll appear, along with the other posts on my front page at the moment.
Fill in your email, click subscribe, and, well, that’s it. That’s all you need to do.
I know that about 2,300 people visit my blog each week. The value of subscribing, for you, is that you get notified by email of my posts as they come out. I post four times a week, and the posts tend to tell stories, sometimes sexy, sometimes funny, sometimes both. I also write occasional information and opinion pieces, though mostly I’m a story-teller.
So I wouldn’t be flooding your in-box. I generally wait till I have something substantial to say before posting. If it’s just a joke, an opinion, or something small, I’ll probably just tweet it. (You can also subscribe to my Twitter feed, using the link on the right sidebar.)
Your subscription helps me because it shows potential publishers that I do have an audience, and so it might be worth giving me money and sticking my writing between covers.
As well as in e-books, but I do have a fondness for paper. You can spank someone with a paperback, without needing complex electronic repairs to your e-reader. For example.
So… please subscribe to this blog! The subscription button is at the top of my right-hand side bar.
And thank you for reading!
I am subscribed to this blog, hence the reason I see this post, but I have to tell you that I don’t see a sidebar at all? I subscribed by commenting and clicking the ‘Notify me of follow-up comments by email.’ box below the comments.
Ah! Thank you! It seems that if you’re looking sat an individual post you don’t see the sidebar.
So you have to click on the banner to get the general front page befopre it shows up.
Thanks! I’d never realised that! I’ve made appropriate adjustment to the text.
Done. It was time anyway since I’ve been reading for over a year now. First website I check every morning and evening, even before email. Hope this helps you.
Thank you very much!
