Friends! One million years ago I told you to “stay tuned” because I was “working on something” cool.
I mean, I was thinking of new ways to write, share my writing, and exist in the world as a professional writer and not just a depressed bag of blood on day 1,493 of this pandemic, but nothing sparked any excitement. Living was hard, writing was harder.
But today, I have news! Big news! Delicious news! I have a new newsletter! Snack and Destroy is a weekly newsletter all about candy, snacks, and rock and roll. 🎶 These are a few of my favorite things. 🎶
All snacks are fair game — new, old, sweet, savory — and each week’s snack will be paired with a song. Why? Because there are few things I love more than sharing my favorite food and music with people like you. The right song heard at the right time can help soothe a storming brain just as a bite of a favorite childhood treat can transport us to simpler times, at least temporarily.
Cheesy? Yes, but it’s true. Food and music bring us together, food and music comfort us when we’re alone. (Also, mmmmm, cheese.)
There are two subscription tiers — a free version and a $6 a month/$60 a year version.
Your paid subscription not only supports me, my writing, and my admittedly pricey snack habit, but it also gives you access to exclusive Snack and Destroy posts. I’m talking interviews with artists and musicians about their favorite chips and candy bars, monthly munchie-related playlists, and other special features. (Recipes, y’all. Of course the Bake It in a Cake lady is gonna bring you some recipes.)
Plus! PLUS! Every month one paying subscriber will be chosen at random to receive FREE SNACKS! I’ll send one winner a box of whatever I’m writing about and/or loving that month. You’re basically buying a raffle ticket for a chance to win snacks! (Offer is available to U.S.-based subscribers only. I can’t swing those overseas shipping fees. I’m sorry.)
I hope you’ll join me on this candy-coated adventure. The first installment will go out October 1. Let’s eat some candy and get weird.
