It is recommended that independent authors develop a mailing list so that when a new book is released, there will be enough initial purchases to consolidate the book's position at the top of the searches.
Many years earlier (before Social Media sites came into existence), I used to have a mailing list for my blog posts. (I wrote the mailing software in Classic ASP.) I think I had at most 20 or 30 subscribers. I would put an entire blog post inside the email rather than give them a link to the blog. My goal then was to spread the content rather than acquire traffic. After I got a job in Bombay, I forgot the mailing list. In subsequent updates to the website code, I removed the mailing-list mailing code. If I had maintaind that mailing list, all my books would have been bestsellers. Now, I will have to build a mailing list from scratch.
I am not a niche writer. I have no idea what I will write next.
So, I have no 'reader magnet' for subscribers. You can download the free PDF ebooks listed below (scroll down) without subscribing.
Subscription Benefit (Added in March 2021)
I was unable to sell the combined volume of my World of Word Ladders books as an ebook. All online ebook stores refused to sell it as they seem to think that even adults need pen and paper to solve these puzzles. So, I am offering it as an exclusive subscriber benefit. This unpublished ebook has 200 word ladders.
