Horns@exitthelight.com Comments: Wow! and to think I gave you a FREE full page ad on the INFERNAL zine (advertised in Fangoria magazine). Then started getting your unwanted newsletter in my inbox after the contact was first made.
But it's all about YOU, isn't it?!

email@example.com Comments: Hi Von! You're listing at Publisher's Marketplace is well-done and very impressive. You're hired! :-)Mark 290 Wed January 08 2003 - 19:58:41 Fullname: Yvonne Navarro Email: Comments:
Thanks, Lindsey. Your nice words are much appreciated. :)
As a general "FYI" to everyone out there, I recently put up a listing on Publisher's Marketplace, where I hope to generate some interest in Mirror Me. Everyone's invited to drop by and take a look-- it's sort of like a little web page with bookcover thumbnails on it but not a lot of bells and whistles (so it loads fairly fast). What makes it worth looking at over the regular Darke Palace web site? There's a full listing of stuff I've got on proposal and am ready to write, ranging from fully outlined novels to the Y.A. book Wes and I are collaborating on. So drop on by and take a look:

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: HAPPY NEW YEAR, YVONNE!!! I here recently finished your parts in "The Tales of the Slayer" before I actually got to start in the longest night. It was great! Keep it up! 292 Sun December 29 2002 - 16:16:41 Fullname: Yvonne Navarro Email: Comments: Hi everyone!
Mark, Lindsey, Jude, and of course, Beth -- thanks for all the good wishes! Sorry to be so lax in posting lately. It's been a busy holiday season, with lots of traveling around and job hunting in the midst of all of that, trying to get the bookstore to do a little business to keep things going in the meantime. A little Buffy writing now and then, too -- Danita, I'm glad you liked Tempted Champions and both the stories in the Longest Night. I hope Lindsey likes them as well, when she gets to them on her reading list. As a side note, if anyone was using the street address out here in Hereford to send me mail... don't. We live so far out in the country here that the Post Office will not (yes, I said "not") deliver mail to the street address. We have to go and pick it up every day, so all mail needs to go to Post Office Box 1302, Hereford, AZ 85615.
How was everyone's Christmas? Wes really surprised me by nefariously going to the artist who painted the cover for the limited edition of AfterAge (yes, it IS almost ready to come out) and buying the original artwork for me. It's gorgeous. Got lots of other neat stuff, too, including a skull (it has red eyes) antenna for my truck and, of course, the requisite chili pepper calendar. My mother-in-law took the time to put together an entire album of family recipes, an incredible project (not to mention lots of great food).
Wes tells everyone that he got a PT Cruiser for Christmas (yes, we bought him a black one with purple flames, on eBay no less), but he's still so shocked that he's forgetting he has to help pay for it! ::grin::
Here's wishing everyone a safe, happy, and healthy 2003!

Hey Mark. Give me a sec -- I know it's around here somewhere...
But seriously -- HI EVERYBODY! Yes, I know; Darke Palace hasn't been updated in ages. I'll get to it soon, I promise. Things are still hectic because of the move and some other stuff, including a really big disaster with my online book inventory (thanks to bad instructions from so-called "tech support"). That's all fixed, but I'm in the midst of a serious job hunt, so that's eating up a lot of my time, too. Then there's Thanksgiving and Christmas, yadda yadda yadda. Working as Webette Designs, I have an update to do for one of my customers, Bob Weinberg, which is going to take priority. But I'm chopping away at my list, honest!
MIRROR ME, alas, hasn't caught the attention of a major publisher. I do have an offer from a small publisher to do a limited edition, which we're still discussing. Speaking of limiteds, AfterAge is in its final publishing stages at last! It will come out with a spectacular cover by artist and long-time friend Rick Sardinha, and boy, I can't wait to see it. And don't forget: It will also include the Prologue from the planned sequel, Red City.
Time for me to get back to work. Here's wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you!
