My dear Gentle Reader, some of you may have noticed I’ve been (not so subtly) encouraging you to join my newsletter over the past few years.
Why, Miss Gail, all this fuss about a newsletter?
Because, frankly, I know you probably like your social media platform (Facebook, Twitter, blog feed, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterst) etc so much better.
I get it, I do. I have my preferred social media ways to get information myself.
Here’s my reasoning…
This has to do with the unreliability of various social media platforms. I’m not naming names but certain parties over the past 9 years have accidentally…
- booted me
- threatened me
- accused me of plagiarizing from myself
- shut down entirely for several hours or days
- suffered from DNS attacks
- refused to tell my fans I had a book out because a scammer claimed to have my book out 2 months early
- throttled my reach out to fans who have already come to find me and then tried to charge me large sums of money to get them back
Look, the Chirrup is the only guaranteed way I have to reliably get info to you. Frankly, it’s the only guarantee you have the you are getting info from me.
If you want to know things about my new releases, cover art reveals, sneak peaks, gossip, upcoming projects, current writing, and events that not yet out online, that’s in the Chirrup.
I will never stop trying to get this info out to you on other channels, even if sometimes it’s weeks late. However, I do get fatigued and exhausted at times by the sheer volume of my social media requirements…
I take breaks.
Break times I’m only promising you the newsletter. I allow myself to drop everything else.
I work hard to make sure the Chirrup is…
- not at all spammy
I promise there is always some nugget of special information, or opportunity to win a box of swag, or secret insight into an upcoming story, often all three.
Alright, I hope I’ve enticed you to join up.
If that wasn’t good enough, here’s a peek at all the books I’ll be giving away via the Chirrup over the next year or so…
Not pictured are audiobook download codes, Bumbersnoot necklaces, swag boxes full of steampunk jewelry & costuming bits and so much more.
Righty, there you have it. Why you should join. What you get for joining. All the enticements.
Now, it’s my feeding time.
Yours as ever,

“Longtime readers will of course appreciate when favourite characters make an appearance – the humanisation (so to speak) of a minor recurring ‘love to hate him’ character was certainly a surprise, and as a fan of outsider POV getting to see them through new eyes is always a treat. But this is great jumping on point to start reading, and would definitely recommend this as a gateway to the rest of the Parasolverse!”
Quote of the Day:
“I cannot raise one eyebrow. So I have my characters do it a lot. I have this living vicariously through my writing thing DOWN.”
