Crime and Suspense

Tony Burton, Chief Editor of the Crime and Suspende Ezine sent me an email which i like to share with you. Here it is :

"Dear Lovers of Great Short Crime Fiction!
We are beginning a push to increase the subscription numbers for the Crime and Suspense ezine.  Subscriptions are important for the survival of the ezine.  Here's why:I've begun selling advertising. That's good, because it helps to finance the cost of maintaining the site (I just paid for another year of hosting) and also helps to pay for the fee-free contests that everyone seems to love.
But advertisers are more likely to want to buy ad space on the ezine and/or web site with an assurance of more people seeing the ads.  Makes sense, right?
I appreciate that so many of you share the URL for the ezine with your friends and family.  But it would be so much more beneficial in the long run if those people, once they like the site, would actually subscribe.  And since the subscription is F*R*E*E, that shouldn't be a problem for anyone.  And keeping that subscription a no-cost one is another reason for having advertisements... thus for having more subscribers!So, spread the word!  Tell everyone you know about the great Crime and Suspense ezine.  Tell them how many great stories are in there, tell them about the great book reviews and articles, tell them about the writing contests... and encourage them to subscribe.
Thanks so much for your help.
Tony Burton, Chief Editor
Crime and Suspense ezine"

Here's the link to the Crime and Suspense website, which i will post as well in the links section : http://www.crimeandsuspense.com
