I am brand new to Constant Contact, and I'm trying to figure out how to do what I want to do. I want to promote my new memoir to a few hundred people who have a built-in interest in the its theme. I have all the email addresses and names from the organizations we all belong to, and I just want to be able to send an email notifying everyone that the book is now available on Amazon and elsewhere. But I understand I can't do that without each person's expressed permission. How do I get those permissions without sending out an email to each asking for permission, which would be illegal, I guess? So, how do I set up a list without existing permissions that is legal to email to? Thanks.
