Join the Stormwolf Mailing List

In this new world of digital distribution, I’m turning out a fair amount of work which is digital-original. I mention it in blog posts and on Twitter and Facebook. I realize that I’ve really missed the boat, all these years, by not putting together a mailing list for folks where I can shoot off an email to let them know a new product is available. The problem with blog posts and tweets and Facebook mentions is that they scroll off so fast these days, folks miss them. (The alternative is a constant stream of reminders, which gets old VERY fast.)

You can join my mailing list by hitting this link, or by clicking on the QR code above. This will send you to a Mailchimp sign-up page, and you’ll get an email confirming your subscription. (I found Mailchimp because the Macallan distillery uses them. Why not go with the best, right?)

A couple of notes:

1) Only sign up if you’re interested in being notified when I have new work available for purchase. Let me make no bones about it—this is a commercial list, not a news list. News I’ll still shoot out on Twitter and Facebook and post here. If you want to make sure you don’t miss new releases, this is the list you want to be on.

2) I will not give away your information or share it with anyone else. The only person authorized to send email to this list will be me.

3) I might include, in an email that refers to a product of mine, a mention of a product by another author or friend. I’ll only do this in the case of products I think you’ll enjoy, and I’ll be doing it because I like the project. I’m not selling access to the list or inclusions in emails. That would just be tacky.

4) You’ll get no more than one email a month on this list, and certainly no more than a dozen in a year. (Probably fewer.) Again, this list will just contain news of products of mine that you’ll be interested in buying, reading and/or playing.

5) To reiterate: this list is just for folks who want to be a Patron of the Arts and snag stuff when it comes out. I really do appreciate your patronage. It keeps a roof over my head, and the products you buy determine what I’ll be turning out. Voting with your dollars really works in that regard.

Mailchimp makes a basic account available for free up to 2,000 users. In the event that you push it over that limit, I’ll find a way to cope. :)

Thanks.

  1. This is great. I am always checking this site to see if you have anything new, but I was always afraid that I would miss something. I try to pickup your works when the first come out and now I will know exactly when that is. Thank you!

  2. I’m hoping this means that there is something to announce very very soon!

  3. This is an absolutely wonderful idea. The only thing better would be to make it like my wife’s wine club where you just send me the stuff and charge my card. I wish all my favorite authors would offer this.

  4. This is one email I won’t mind receiving.

    I finished Of Limited Loyalty the other day. Another excellent novel,Mike. You’ve done such a great job with the world building for that one that it really comes to life on the page. Your level of craft continues to amaze me. I learn something from you on just about every page. I would be proud of myself if I was just HALF the writer you are…

    A co-worker of mine is a very avid reader. I convinced him to give At the Queen’s Command a chance. He loved it, and immediately picked up Of Limited Loyalty as soon as it came out. He said that he was very impressed with your writing and looks forward to reading more of your books.

    I’m currently reading Perfectly Invisible. It is fascinating to me how many geeky elements you’ve been able to seamlessly weave into that story… Anyone who knows you from Origins, Gen Con, or Dragon Con would have to enjoy this book.

    Keep up the good work, and I am looking forward to seeing you at the conventions this year and learning more from you.

  5. I just read Harry Turtledoves civil war alternate history series, and I must say I enjoyed your Crown Colonies books more. I only just realised why – your books have much more living worlds, and in alternate history, making the setting as believable and real as our reality is very important, and thats something that all of your work does superbly.

  6. And I’ve obviously needed this since I didn’t realize the Of Limited Loyalty was out….
