A Mystery That Will Stay With Me Until The End Of Time

“Where did you come from, where did you go?
Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?”

The mystery

I got my first email subscriber (thank you), and then a few days later the person unsubscribed.

The mystery deepens

  • Was it a mis-click?
  • Were my stories not of interest to you?

As a ‘shotgun’ writer that writes on a lot of subjects — what were your looking for?

What story did you read that made you want to click on the button?

You were my first (and only) subscriber — I had so many decisions to make when I published:

  • Is this story for you?
  • Do you want this email to be the one that clutters up your inbox?

In the end, I didn’t click the option to email the stories -maybe that is why you left — I didn’t contact you…

If you like my work or want to write — you can sign up below — it helps to fund my writing. Cheers!
