    I have read you blog from the beginning and get all my tbr books from your blog and podcasts. I read you e-book deals every day and usually buy a few. However since your post about getting the information through email I no longer see your e-book deals. I click on e-book deals and still get the post about the e-mail, but it is dated September 2015. What can I do,thanks.
