Yes, I know you hate these dialogs. Me too. But you are here for a reason, which is probably to read one of my articles without having to pay for a Medium members. And I’m good with that. I'm just asking for your email so when my book is for sale (ETA Feb 2021) I can let everyone know.

And if I ever get my newsletter started, I can let you know about that too. Here are my promises to you:

1. I promise never to give away or sell your email

2. I promise never to email you more than once per month

3. I promise to only ever email you about accessibility/disability-related issues

4. You can put a fake email in (please make it foo@bar.com to make it easy for me to filter out) or unsubscribe any time you want.
