Between Souls Newsletter #1 QR Code

What a week! I released my book last Thursday, and I had an amazing response! Thanks to everyone who sent emails, notes and tweets. I love hearing from readers who love Lucie as much as I do.

I also appreciate everyone who signed up for my newsletters. I was excited to send the first one out this week (image on left). For anyone who did not sign up but would like to see what I sent, you can click this link or use the QR code with your smart phone.

What is a QR code? Here's a great description, but basically it is like a square bar code that phones with scanners can read. When you use a QR code reader, your phone is redirected to specific content, such as a web page. I downloaded i-nigma for my iPhone (it was free), but there are more than 15 QR reader apps in the App Store.

Drum roll please...  this is my QR code for my newsletter. If you have a QR reader on your phone, simply use it to scan the code. You'll see a shortened web address - that's my newsletter page. Click to go online, and you should be taken to the mobile version of the newsletter. So cool! (If you're viewing my blog on your phone, you're out of luck unless you have a friend with a QR reader who can scan this code for you...maybe it's best to wait until you get home.)

I plan to have QR codes for all of my newsletters, so if you don't want to subscribe, you can still get the latest info. I'm also going to add a page to my site with the archived newsletters.

If you do subscribe after a newsletter goes out, I will send your copy to you as soon as I can. I am notified when a new subscriber is added, so I can ask the system to send it to all new subscribers only. And so that you know, the subscriber list is private and is not shared with anyone. Not ever. So you should feel safe entering your email address.

Thanks again for all of the support. I hope to have more fun updates for you early next week.
