10 Reasons Not To Sign Up For My e-Newsletter


1. You won't get junk mail if you sign up. It would only be depressing just getting my e-Newsletter with exclusive interviews and recipes--which will only appear in The Homestead Heart's e-Newsletter. And you only get an e-Newsletter if you're on the mailing list.

2. Be an individualist! Anyone can be an e-Newsletter recipient--why bother with a pretty and entertaining email that comes in the form of a well put-together e-Newsletter?

3. It would only eat up your valuable time! Why read The Homestead Heart's e-Newsletter--exclusive interviews with your favorite authors and recipes not shared on this site, when you could actually be surfing the net? (Whoa now! Don't leave yet! LOL). What's that? I already listed this reason? Oh...

4. I only send The Homestead Heart's e-Newsletter twice a year, so you'd feel like I don't love you because I'm not sending it more often. (Now, you must remember, I do love you, and I do love your visits. Don't leave me now.)

5. You want to avoid the shock of discovering that I won't share your information with anyone, not even Publisher's Clearing House. I'm sorry--I just refuse.

6. It's unbelievable that I would call your local store and let them know I have readers in their area and ask them if they'd stock their shelf with my book so you'll have a copy available. You resent that I won't even share your personal info with the store manager. No, not even him!

7. You don't like that fact that none of The Homestead Heart's e-Newsletter giveaway prizes will ever be puppies or kittens. Sorry, they don't mail well.

8. You don't want the giveaways for the mailing list. That's okay, I won't force you, but I have two holiday drawings that will happen for those on The Homestead Heart's e-Newsletter mailing list. Hey, I already have their addresses, so I can have the giveaway item mailed out--just like that!

9. That's all I've got. So, maybe it's the fact that I can't count and I repeated reasons that you may not want to sign up.

Or, maybe you'd love to sign up for The Homestead Heart's e-Newsletter--oh how I wish you would. Then you'd be joining us for more fun in the e-Newsletter giveaways! We have two of them coming up, so hurry!

Sign up in the sidebar with the box
next to the little green envelope.

LOL - it doesn't look this long in the email--honestly!

Carole said...

I love your humor and also the picture at the top of your blog. I'm looking forward to your newsletter!

Tina Dee Books said...

Thanks Carole & Lee!

We have some neat giveaways I'm working on for the blog, but also exclusives for the mailing list--since you all are so kind as to fill out all the info and trust me with your secrets, well, okay, just your addresses, but still...lol.

I have the best readers in the world! Really, I love the emails you all send.

Don't forget to bring a friend to this website, and to Love's Gamble, if you think they'd like it.

I love the header of your blog. Is that your living room? So gorgeous.

I signed up.

Tina Dee Books said...

Hi Eileen,

I wish it were my living room, for the fireplace if nothing else. I love fireplaces.

No, but maybe one day, when my house is clean (when being the operative word) I'll put up a pic or two.

The pics on this blog is the home I wanted to create for my readers, the one I wish I could welcome them into.

Have great day, glad you signed up, a fun giveaway drawing coming for my newsletter readers, someone at random on the list will win! I love it!

And, we'll have more drawings.

I also need to announce winners from previous drawings, Susan Meissner's interview, and Susan Page Davis's character interview.

Hugs everyone!

Tina, I have to tell you I *love* what you've done with the site...it's absolutely gorgeous! :) I hope things are going well with you, I've been a bit out of the blogging loop lately. Looking forward to hearing more from you, as always! :)

Hey! I had a question about your slideshow on the side of your blog. I'm making one for my blog, but am having trouble with the size. How did you get yours to stand upright? I think mine would fit if I did that.

Tina Dee Books said...


Email me at Tina@TinaDeeBooks.com--I'll look up the size (you mean the one for the Bustles author's books, right?)

I emailed you at the addy on your blogger profile.
