First Annual Reader Survey

First Annual Reader Survey

Why you should take my first annual reader survey: I think you're fascinating.

No, really, and that's more than a cheezy pickup line. I think we have some things in common (we like to read space opera, for one), and I'd like to know more about you.

So, I've come up with a questionnaire to ask what you like, and what kind of communication and content you'd like to see from me in the future.

Bonus: You could win a prize!

To reward you for completing the survey, I'll select two random email addresses for prizes on 12 February, and announce the winners in my next newsletter.


Clever readers will note that this is my first annual reader survey, and surmise that I plan to do one each year. Yep, it's true. I love to hear from readers, but most of you don't write back when I send out a newsletter. I get that — I don't write back to newsletters, either, unless specifically asked — so I want to make sure I'm sending content you want to read, and at the frequency you want to receive it.

When I announce the winners of the prizes, I'll also tell you about the survey results, to see what y'all* are interested in and like.

The Year of Having a Plan, and a winged lionAs a side note, if you happen to be in Denver the weekend of 2-4 March, I'll be there too, at Whimsy Con. It's a new steampunk, costuming, and science fiction convention that is following in the footsteps of Anomaly Con, which ended its run last spring. If you make it to Whimsy Con, please make sure to introduce yourself to me — I really do like meeting readers.


*A contraction for “you all,” a informal regional term in the U.S. southern states that is quite useful and should be used everywhere.
