I finally got up the nerve (after stewing about it for 6 months) to email the people who originally reviewed my writings when I was still posting on FanFiction.net, FictionPress.net, FanDomination.net and AdultFanFiction.net. I had moved everything from those accounts to BM, including the reviews. Everything that I could recover from my accounts there has been archived here now.
I emailed over 60 people. About 18 returned as undeliverable. I hope the remaining 40+ people who got it will be ok with an unsolicited email (indeed, some of them commented that they wished to hear from me). It’s the only email I’m ever going to send out for BM, and the recipients actually go back as far as 2001-2002. Any updates from this point forward will be on the site itself and on the HA Updates E-List.
Anyway, here’s what I had said in the email:
You are receiving this email because you had reviewed one of my writings on either FanFiction.net, FictionPress.net or AdultFanFiction.net. I’m writing this email to let you know I have since moved my writings off those sites and am now archiving them on my own site, located at http://www.hellish-alchemy.com/writings/, which also includes the reviews you had sent me.
This is a one-time email. If you are interested, then feel free to read and review more of my work. However, if you did not wish to receive any further correspondence from me, please accept my apologies and ignore this. I will not be sending another email.
Thank you very much for your time and your past comments on my writings.
I’d like to think I sounded nice and sweet (and yes, I realize I forgot to mention FanDomination.net in the email). Anyway, I’m probably gonna be updating with more writings in a few weeks after this. I have some stuff recorded in notebooks and on my computer’s hard-drive that I still haven’t even touched yet.
