Hi Everybody,

It's been a long time since I've written...I was afraid this would happen.  It's so hard to keep up on these things. 

Although Normal Miguel has just come out, and I'm very excited about it, I've been spending hours a day on a new manuscript.  When I get ideas, I just can't keep myself from getting them out.

I hadn't read the e-mails regarding a chat or board for the contemporary work.  Can anyone fill me in?  Is it worth it?  How do you do that?  I'm a bit of a neophyte at all of this social networking stuff.

In the meantime, I'm also lamenting the terrible turns this world seems to make every damn day.  I'm not sure we'll all be around much longer.  It's taken us much longer to get this far, as a species, than it will to put an end to us!  (Not a dooms-day sayer...just a realist, I think.)

Anyhow, welcome Anne, if you're out there.  I'm looking forward to reading everybodys' books.  (They're all on my to-do list!)

So long,

As far as I'm concerned it's Cheyenne Day and the point is to concentrate on those, but - Mark, it's your press, your decision. Some presses are very strict about it, and I think it makes sense for us to focus, the way we stuck to historical on the Mac day yesterday.

There's a general M/M day, too, on the 14th, and a 'what does Pride mean to you?' chat on the 7th. Lots of opportunities to put our names and websites up there for people to see.
