Are you brave, story-starved, and excited by things occasionally showing up in your email?
The List is, well, my mailing list. Joining will get you notifications every time something notification-worthy happens. Fear not. Notification-worthy events are rare around here, so your email won't get swamped.
However, joining The List also gets you a free story.
As in, a whole never-before-published story. Right now. There might even be more List exclusive stories down the line. So really, not joining is cheating yourself out of wonderful things. And let's face it, you deserve more wonderful things in your life.
