I decided to start a Larynn Ford newsletter a few months ago. The only thing I was missing was recipients. I could muddle my way through the creative part of constructing the document but where would I acquire folks willing to offer up their email addresses.
I decided to conduct a giveaway in exchange for permission to be placed on a mailing list. My table at my last two book signings looked much like the picture below from Moonlight & Magnolias last Saturday in Atlanta, GA. The sign on the right side of the photo offered the prize for signing up.
Tonight, I took out the notebook with the names and email addresses of attendees, sent my granddaughter a text asking her to pick a number, and my winner was chosen. Cathy Long happened to be in the lucky spot and a $25 Amazon gift card was emailed to her just moments ago.
And if you are in the Huntsville, AL area Saturday October 10 or Sunday October 11 for The Rocket City Lit Fest, stop by my table and sign up for my newsletter and another chance to win!
