Get free writing advice sent straight to your inbox every month! ( a whole lot more)

Bucket Siler

Join my list today and get all these amazing things... for no actual money! (No, really. It's totally free.) You'll get:

  • Fiction writing tips and advice from yours truly sent directly to your inbox (about once a monthโ€”sometimes more, sometimes less)
  • Early notification of sales, discounts, giveaways, or pre-orders on my books, courses, editing services, or other stuff to help you with your writing (don't worry, I send this stuff sparingly and won't flood your inbox with unwanted promotions)
  • The deep relief of knowing you won't miss something important if you take a break from social media or stop visiting my website
  • And best of all (I think): Direct access to ME if you have questions about your writing, or just want to chat. All you have to do is hit "reply" to your most recent email and you'll show up right in my inbox ๐Ÿ™‚

Nervous about giving me your email? Don't be. My mailing list is super legit and official, which means you can unsubscribe anytime by hitting the "unsubscribe" button at the bottom of the email, avoiding awkwardness or hard feelings in the wake of your departure (honestly, there are so many people on my list I won't even notice).


Um, sure, that sounds great... but who the hell are you?

Oh, dear. Did I forget that part? I apologize. Let me introduce myself:

I'm Bucket Siler. I'm a fiction writer and freelance editor. You might know me from my Tumblr blog (theliteraryarchitect), where I post writing advice and other writing-related stuffs. I've self-published a lot of books and zines, and I've also been traditionally published in several obscure (and not-so-obscure) literary magazines. I'm the founder of Santa Fe Zine Fest (in Santa Fe, NM). I'm also the author of The Complete Guide to Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Feel free to cruise around my site and get to know me better, or just take the plunge and join my list anyway. It's probably the best way to get to know me and what I have to offer other writers (like you!). ๐Ÿ™‚

No, thanks. Please take me back to your website.
