1. ASK your readers to sign up for your newsletter list.

2. Get to know your subscribers.

3. Unsubscribes are permanent (but they aren’t bad!)

When [subscribers] remove themselves from the [email] list, they’re really just saving space another reader who is interested and invested in your books.

4. Don’t rent, buy, or even accept for free any email lists.

5. Don’t share your fans’ information and email addresses.
