Hello my name is Patti (PJ) Fiala and I’d like to welcome you to our brand new website and blog.
Let me begin by explaining why we added a blog to our brand new website. As our members had new releases, sales and cover reveals, that information wasn’t always sent out to members timely. There are a couple of reasons for this, 1) if a newsletter had just gone out, another one would not go out for another month or so. That left the information sitting in Que waiting for the next newsletter. That’s not fair to our members; and 2) I was hesitant to barrage our members with constant emails and newsletters, so again, some news would sit until the next newsletter. Enter, our WisRWA Blog.
This blog will be active. As members send information to me for addition to the newsletter (firstname.lastname@example.org), it will be added to this blog. Monthly, currently on the 3rd of every month, all new information from the previous month will be compiled and sent in the form of a newsletter. Members should check our new blog often and see what the latest news is and who has a new release, or other news. We will still utilize the Facebook pages, but this is an added way for us to keep in touch with each other. Occasionally, we may ask for guest bloggers to write a post, tell us a story or share one of their blog posts by allowing us to reblog it here.
Another bonus to this blog, is that we will also be publishing it to the general public. By publishing our information and asking people who love romance and specifically, books by our members, to sign up for our newsletters, we are adding another avenue for us all to reach new readers. So, please share this blog on any and all social media sites you are on and in your own newsletters as we launch our shiny new website and blog.
Thank you for your continued sharing and support of WisRWA and its members. Your participation is immeasurable.
