Taking esubs once reaching 1000 followers.
« on: August 26, 2010, 09:46:53 AM »
Just reminding our peeps here that Natalie Fischer promised to open to e-subs if she reaches 1000 followers on twitter...she is now at 976...can't wait...I guess I must be cheap and am holding off on sending pages by snail-mail...or maybe it's because I am trying to be greener  ;D.

Just in case you are interested to become a follower here is her link, she's got some great insights on the queries she receives BTW:

Oooooooo! I've wanted to query her, but I prefer email if it all possible, also to save trees.

I'm #182 : )

Who's next?

I think TG is saying, what does 1000 followers on Twitter have to do with email queries?

A couple of possibilities.

1) She's trying to gauge the quantity and quality of response by opening to electronic queries.
2) She's attempting to use other people's networks in order to attract more submissions.
2) She intends to open for electronic queries anyways.  She just wants to drum up publicity.

My vote is for #3.

Nothing wrong with publicity. After researching her, I find her quite delightful and very, very kind to writers. : )

A win win situation!
