Connect your Mad Mimi account

When you create a pen name, you'll be asked if you want to integrate your newsletter with Booksprout. Follow these steps to integrate Mailchimp for your pen name.

First, make sure you select "Form Input" when creating your pen name:

Then, enter a description of what people can expect to get by joining your newsletter.

And finally, get your HTML form code from Aweber. You can follow Mad Mimi’s instructions to get your HTML form code. (Tip: you want the Plain Embed option. In the following example I’ve removed the unnecessary javascript that they include for brevity.)

<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="" id="ema_signup_form" method="post" target="_blank">
 <div style="margin:0;padding:0;display:inline">
 <input name="utf8" type="hidden" value="✓"/>
 <div class="mimi_field required">
 <label for="signup_email">Email*</label>
 <input id="signup_email" name="signup[email]" type="text" data-required-field="This field is required" placeholder="[email protected]"/>
 <div class="mimi_field">
 <input type="submit" class="submit" value="Subscribe" id="webform_submit_button" data-default-text="Subscribe" data-submitting-text="Sending..." data-invalid-text="↑ You forgot some required fields" data-choose-list="↑ Choose a list" data-thanks="Thank you!">

Once you're done filling out all of those details, you can save your pen name. Now readers will be able to join your newsletter via the Booksprout app and in our giveaways!
