Brandi here. Since GDPR has made my job much more difficult lately, I’ve been given permission to bribe y’all with an exclusive Curran Twitter that is only available for Newsletter/ Blog Post subscribers. In other words, I’m asking if y’all who want to be resubscribed for either services to send very clear instructions in an email to myself regarding which of the two, if not both, you wish to get emails for. I need first and last names people!
If you want to keep receiving our emails and to read the Curran Twitter, check your email. You will see an email from us about Curran Twitter. Open that email and follow the instructions. For your convenience, these instructions are copied and pasted below.
Click the blue button below that says UPDATE SETTINGS.
Once there, make sure that you do this:
In Marketing Permissions, click EMAIL. You can give us other permissions too, but we have to have Email permission to continue to send you emails.
Once you are done, click UPDATE PROFILE.
We’ve included a helpful image.
My email is Brandi.Bolden202@gmail.com
FAQ REGARDING SUBSCRIPTIONS (PLEASE READ)
- Upon signing up, I was told I was already subscribed. Is there an issue with this or am I good to go?
You are good to go! However, if you want me to double check for you I can.
- Do you need my first and last name?
That’s a personal preference, but you certainly can be subscribed with or without your last name.
- I’m getting two separate emails, why is this happening?
I understand a lot of people have been receiving two emails from separate addresses (Ilona Andrews, Inc & Ilona Andrews). You are experiencing this because you are currently signed up for both the Blog Updates & The Newsletter. If you wish to be removed from either or both, let me know.
Have any questions that were not answered here? Email me at Brandi.Bolden202@gmail.com & I will be sure to get to you as soon as I can.
Thanks for being patient and awesome.
I just signed up!! I am all for a Curran Twitter… ::chuckle::
Very excited to see the Curran Twitter. LOVED the mini Curran POVs that were released in the blog a long time ago!
Were the Curran mini povs in the blog the same ones that were available to download?
I believe so.
Have signed up but where are the Curran pov ‘s ?
More Curran Please!!
I updated last week, that is good enough, right?
So looking forward to more Curran
It is worth double-checking. I thought I had checked email but I hadn’t.
Hello my desktop is not showing a big blue button to push. Help please!!!!
No worries, you will get an email with the button. 🙂 It probably hasn’t reached you yet. If you are worried, please email Brandi and she will fix you up.
Natasha Johnson says
Did it twice just to make sure!! So excited for Curran Twitter!!
Well I wasn’t signed up for the news letter or blog post (it was always easier to just check here) but I guess I will now
Christina S says
Christina S says
Oops I guess I was signed up already. Haha
Bill G says
All set here, I hope. I’ll be happy to see what Curran has to say, but the continuation of the epistles was enough of a bribe for me.
I already updated it the other day but just did it again to be sure!
Hope it worked
Thank you Brandi ?
Hooray! Always ready for more Curran.
Just a bit of advice, Brandi. When you post your email address, change the @ to [at]. That’s to keep spammers’ search engines from finding your email address in the posts. Or at least, I was told that was recommended. They might have upped their game and figured out a way around that, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to write your email address as Brandi.Bolden202 [at] gmail.com.
I followed the steps in the email and it said my settings were updated, but I got that message last week with the other emails. Guess I’ll find out tomorrow if it work.
I follow the blog – almost religiously. I never signed up for the email because I believe it’s the same content as what is on the blog and facebook page. But damn it …. Curran twitter.
Same for me. I check this blog more often when my email anyway, ( starting Thursday’s 24 times a day) so before the bribe,
newsletter wasn’t necessary:)))
I’m in Russia, so normally I get innkeeper on Saturday:( never stopped me from hopping for Thursday:)?
Right???!!! The bribe got me too! I just signed up for the newsletter. Wait…if we’re New subscribers, do we still get the Curran POV?
If we don’t there is a strong possibility of rioting. I wonder if Hugh and crew could be hired as a Merc to address that problem. Or wait, better yet, I momentarily forgot that Curran now runs the Guild!
Aaaaand now …. I’m wondering what would happen if D’Ambray joined the Guild. 😀
This is exactly me. I seriously check this blog far more often than is probably healthy so I figured why get the newsletter? But this…. yes. Now I will get the newsletter. But Curran tweets haven’t appeared when I confirmed. So now I’m hoping and praying they appear. Now I have to check email like I check this blog. ….. I may never sleep again. ?
Same! Even though checking this blog is part of my daily routine I want more of Curran so I just signed up for the newsletter. Hope I start receiving the Curran tweets!
KC Hulsman says
That screenshot doesn’t look like what I see.
There’s a field called status, under the first & last name fields. Do I need to do something there?
I put grateful reader in mine. 🙂
LOL. Mine said ‘active”
I love Curran and I will cherish his tweets (lol). Don’t worry Kate – I look but don’t touch and won’t say a word ?
I can easily be bribed with snippets! Updates done. Thank you 🙂
I signed up. How do I get to the Curran Twitter??
This might be a dumb question but what’s the difference, if there is any, between the Newsletter or the Subscription Blog Post? Is 1 easier to send for you guys, or has more content?
KC Hulsman says
@Natalie – It’s more about what info you want to receive & frequency of emails you want.
The main newsletter: “This newsletter goes out infrequently and contains information about new releases, appearances, and big news. ”
The blog newsletter: “This newsletter delivers posts from this website blog directly to your email box. If you don’t want to miss out on snippets, funny articles, or notification about free fiction, this is the newsletter for you. This newsletter goes out more frequently.”
Thank you KC. Your posted link sorted me out
Amanda P says
Updated and now looking forward to more Curran?
I prefer the blog. I had no idea that Curran had a twitter account!
I completed the process, but no Curran twitter appeared. Is this bribe based on delayed gratification?
If so, how very European!
Oh man, I hope Curran and Rogan have a Twitter war. Or Arabella and Curran : who’s the better monster??
Chris T. says
oooooooooooooooh . . .
Make it so Authorlords!
Elizabeth G says
As much as I want Rogan to tweet, Arabella could reduce Curran to ribbons. Does that make me an awful human being taking delight in such prospects?
Done 🙂 I am ready to be bribed 🙂
Chris T. says
oooooooooooooooh . . .
Does anybody know how to search for categories on redesigned website (I don’t see it anymore)?
Ginni Carter says
Will those of us who love you from fb and hate email notifications if all species still get to read the Curran Twitter piece???! (Peeeeeas, and caarrots?)
I want it, I really do. But I am a log in and check girl not a susbscribe girl :-). Maybe I will get desperate enough to do it, but ack, more e-mail? Ugh
Agreed. I had to wrestle with my instincts and decided that my hate of email clutter outwights my desire for a solitary twitter exchange, Curran notwithstanding. I could sign up and then unsucscribe, but why create that extra work for you?
Patricia Schlorke says
Bribe away! I don’t mind getting two e-mails. That way I know I received any and all information from Ilona Andrews. 😀
On a side note: my move (including cleaning) is totally done! Yay! Now, I can concentrate on organizing my new place and focus on the really good stuff (Hugh, Elara, Kate, Curran, and so forth).
Joy Powell says
So with you there. I am all moved out. Now I just have to drive home tomorrow.?
I am not a subscriber of Twitter, will I still be able to see that post? I would like to read it either through the Blog or by email.
I’m sorry I hadn’t finished. Brandi I replied to the emails for being a Newsletter/ Blog Post subscribers. Thank you I do want to read the bribe for New Curran Twitter post. Thank you.
Can we get a Rogan POV bribe ?
Natasha Johnson says
+1 but I’ll take whatever they give
Elizabeth G says
Did we ever get part 2 of the “before date” scene?
Nita Hope says
Ugh sorry about all this. I’ve signed up!
Of course I signed up, enjoy the blog immensely, but I LOVE that handsome GSD pup at the head of this blog. He’s got that whole alert, intelligent, and responsive look going strong. I believe he appeared before . Who is the lucky owner?
I believe that is Artha and she belongs to Ilona and Gordon ?
Thank you. I amend my statement. SHE has that whole alert intelligent thing going for her. GSDs are one of my to favorite breeds. Over 50 years I’ve had nine of them, usually more than one at a time. My other favorite is the Chow Chow. A dog less like a GSD cannot be imagined. Give a command and the GSD says, ” yeah, yeah, on it!” The Chow says, “Talk to the Shepherd.” I occasionally imagine an Alpha pack meeting with a Shepherd and a Chow on the board. Jim could probably relate to the Chow. They are as near a cat as a canine can get. Anyway Artha is lovely.
I don’t know why my message gets wiped out by my name!
Dogs definitely have personalities
My daughter has a Bichon Frise crossed with a poodle, she is a diva!
That’s my baby Artha. I got her when she was a puppy for a cheap price because her daddy nipped her in the face and she had to get major surgery on her eye. They weren’t sure if she would have any vision problems or if anyone would want her, but she ended up recovering 100% with no vision issues and is a healthy and happy baby. She also has an instagram I made for her
I updated my preferences…. do I still need to send ya an email??
Can’t wait for Currans sample…. eek!!!
Nymeria Yetikash says
Open for bribes!
Nymeria Fauna says
Ok, having probs updating my info 🙁 It is giving me an error #401 msg, saying authentication is required when I try to log in. I will have my tech-savvy husband try on his laptop, and if it still doesn’t work, I guess I will contact Brandi.
Sarah P. says
Bribe taken ?
I subscribed to the newsletter today. Will i be eligible?
I already did it like five times… please stop sending me the same mail over over again.
Gaelle Dray says
Done and Done!
Many thanks! Can’t wait for the bribe, though I must admit I didn’t need one to update my settings, love the authorlords!
Done but I have no idea how to update for the other one..? It only gave me the email check box not a separate one for blog update and newsletter updates so not sure which one I’ll actually get…
Proud Bookworm says
I didn’t get a blue button either, but I did go to my profile and I confirmed my settings. Did I do this correctly?
Do you really mean that we can only access the Curren Twitter if we have a Twitter account?
I hope not!
I’ve been sitting here for half an hour trying to phrase this without saying something politically sensitive. I’ll just say that I won’t be a party to a medium that allows anyone to lash out and say anything they want, without regard for truth, civility, even common decency, to inflict incredible harm to our fellow human beings.In that medium profanity is just fine, bullying is just fine, malicious lying is just fine. There are no consequences.
Very day my favorite yarn sites and authors, etc. invite me to follow them on Twitter, Fb, et al. It’s exactly like asking me to follow them into a sewer. It reflects badly on them .Give it some thought and see if you really need them to run your very valuable business. Thanks.
I don’t think thats how it works based on the wording. Looks like if you sign up for blog/newsletter emails you get the Curran Twitter posts. No mention of requiring a Twitter account, if I remember correctly unless a tweet is private anyone can see it on Twitter anyway.
I believe it is just a make believe Twitter account from Curran – there have been previous ones…they are hilarious ?
This is a stupid question but do I need a Twitter account for this?
As above ?
If you go to Menu then press on Free Fiction there are a few tweets there from Curran.
I don’t use twitter so I hope it’s just going to come through on email ?
Today Adam Hauptman is up in the vampirediaries contest. Rogan and Kate won both of their preliminary challenges.
Thank you for this info. I would have missed voting for Adam. So happy Rogan and Kate won their bouts.
Haven’t received my email. 🙁
Julie from Canberra Australia says
