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,

Hey Erik,
Readers of your blog may be a little bit confused when you refer to things being discussed in our private Yahoo group, so I'll fill them in. Cheyenne Publishing has a chat scheduled for June 27th here:
It's a yahoo group that you have to join in order to participate. We will be discussing all things Cheyenne Publishing and will definitely give away a free book of "Normal Miguel" on that day. I hope you will be able to join us.

Our newest author, Anne Brooke, isn't subscribed to your blog so I'm afraid she can't "hear" you. :)

Lee is the one who set it up, but I'm sure it will be fairly informal in that anybody can talk about whatever they want.

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.
