Love Bites

By Elena Kaufman

Foreigners, drifters, and eccentrics reach out to strangers in their desire to be witnessed, to be connected, and to find safety in a sea of anonymity

Generous ghosts in 2021

Dear friends and family,

There’s nothing like a worldwide pandemic to make you re-think your life path, goals, and what’s really important. Despite the setbacks of these past couple of years, writing has stuck by me, and I by it. Call it therapeutic, entertainment, or escapism, but making up stories and reading other people’s brings me joy. I hope it does the same for you. According to market research on increased book sales, we all need entertainment, education, and illumination. No matter what is going on in the world.

And now for some breaking news:

I’d like to thank you for your support on Unbound and if you’re interested in sticking with me, I’ve moved away from my Luddite past (although I do still write in a notebook) to join the techno-creatives with a Patreon page. This is like in the days of old when artists had their own patrons. Would you like to be part of my creative journey and get first dibs on new writing?

For the first 5 supporters to sign up to “Edie Kaufman is creating Fiction - Good night, ghosts” I’ll send you the paperback copy of the book you helped me bring into this world ‘Love Bites and other stories’ (you should have gotten a link to a downloadable e-version of this. If not, just ask). Also, it’s never too late to leave a review - please do this on your country’s Amazon page. Just search Love Bites Kaufman and you’ll find the book. Every review counts, especially yours.

But back to Patreon, there are 3 tiers of monthly support from the price of a coffee to a meal. Each tier will give you one new story per month. Other goodies include blog posts about writing and how I create my stories, and research on multicultural ghost stories. The highest tier offers writers editorial and beta-reading expertise on your own work, no matter the level or genre.

So, if you are ready for some spooky stuff, please join me here. If you’re brave enough, that is...

with healthy wishes,
