Is this you?

Staring at a blank page when it’s time to email your newsletter subscribers…

… because you don’t know what to say?

Worried that dealing with your newsletter takes away from your writing time…

… you know, the thing you actually got into this business to do?

Not sure why anyone is on your list, where they came from, or what you can do to get them to start engaging with your content…

… or at least opening your dang emails?

I see you. And I get it.

You're an author, not a marketer

and Your newsletter can't be your full-time job

You've got a lot on your plate already:

write your book

get it edited

buy a spiffy cover

figure out how to advertise

... & somehow pay for it all!

I know you're overwhelmed...

Because I hear the same things all the time:


"I don't even know where to start."

I’ve got you. We’ll start at the very beginning, evaluating Email Service Providers and going through the steps that will set you up properly—or retrofitting best practices into your current setup, if you’ve been doing it wrong so far. Starting is the easiest part!


"I'd rather be writing."

Wouldn’t we all? I’ll show you how to automate everything you can and template what you can’t automate, so that you can get maximum results from minimal effort. (And who knows? once you’re properly sorted, you might find that sending newsletters is actually fun!)


"I'm just going to have a Facebook group."

That does sound easier, doesn’t it? But the easy path isn’t always the right path, and in this case it’s very much the wrong path. I’ll explain why you must prioritize your newsletter over everything else — and how to make your subscribers prefer your newsletter too!


"I don't have anything to say."

Sure you do. If you’re interesting enough to write a book, you’re interesting enough to write a regular newsletter. I’ll help you tease out the stories that will surprise and delight your subscribers, right from the very first email you send!


"I've already tried everything."

If you’ve tried to follow the (often contradictory) advice of online gurus, it’s no surprise that you haven’t gotten the results you want.

You don’t need a guru.

You need a ninja. 🥷🏼

Hey, I'm Tammi

And I happen to be a ninja.

I’m the newsletter ninja who translates all that internet marketer… stuff… into strategies that work for you.

I’ve been doing this indie author thing for a decade now, and I understand your author newsletter needs — from list-building to automation to managing unsubscribes.

I've got you, fam.
