If I sent you the info for my book but it never appeared on LDSF, to what should I attribute that? Will you be offended if I resend?
You should attribute it to the probability that I didn't get it. PLEASE DO resend.
I get a LOT of junk mail at the ldsp hotmail account. So much, in fact, that I'm considering closing down that email and opening a new one. Just haven't gotten around to it.
The first thing I do when I check my email is to weed out the obvious junk mail—you know the ones, where I've won the lottery or someone wants to pay me a million dollars to help them sneak their money into the U.S. If there's a question in my mind, I usually open it, but if you've put something really odd in your subject line, I might have accidentally deleted your email without opening it.
The best way to make sure I know it's a legit email is to think about that subject line. Good ones are:
- Question for LDSP
- Book for LDSF
- Contest for LDSP
- Author Event (or Book Signing or Workshop or. . .)
- From an LDS Author
- Will you review my book
- or anything else that makes it obvious you're a legit blog reader and not a mail-order-bride from Uzbekistan.
Sorry, Th. Yes, resend.
And about that Christmas Story Contest. Good suggestions everyone. I'm going to update the rules right now.
