This is a quick note to my business contacts. Today Constant Contact, the email marketing service I use to alert readers to my books and programs,  named me as a recipient of one of the their 2012 All Star Awards.

Each year, they give this award to a select group of small businesses and nonprofits for their success using Constant Contact's email marketing tools. According to the company, my email results ranked amongst the top 10% of their international customer base of a half million organizations.  


Much of the credit for this belongs to my husband and business partner.  Scott transitioned our email marketing to Constant Contact in late 2011, which makes it even more of an honor to be recognized as a 2012 All Star. Also deserving credit is Heather Biederman, the talented graphic artist at Cedar Creek Web Design who crafted the beautiful email templates we use.


As a self-employed author, it is absolutely critical that readers have multiple ways of discovering my work and engaging with me. Constant Contact email, my Facebook author page, Sites and Stories blog and site have all proved essential for nurturing relations with my growing audience.

 Warm regards,
