I'm soooo excited!!!  This is my first published work that will actually appear in a bound volume, and I can't wait to get my own copy! 

Thank you so much for the opportunity to take part in this endeavor, Blackbead!  It's more thrilling than I could have imagined, and I haven't even held the book in my hand yet! 

Oh, and for those who don't already know, I am Wendy Easterling, and my work appears in "Tales from the Mist"...

Rani/Wendy,

Thank YOU so much for contributing your work to Echoes!  I still think your poetry is some of the best in the book!

Sweetie, WHEN we meet, I'll sign it for you... and I'll perform it for you, also!!!  Whichever one you like... there are 3 in the book, and a short vignette that I actually wrote for the Circle exactly a year ago... today.

It's here, it's here!!!  And it's beautiful!!!  Couple of layout issues, but over all... I'm over the moon!!!  It's sooooo incredible to see my name on the cover (and I hardly even notice all those other names...)!!!  :D

I'm trying to resolve the layout issues that I know of . . . care to PM me with the ones you found?

I'm so glad that you like it!  More to follow!

I'll try, but I'm afraid it will have to be after the holiday, since just about every minute is scheduled from here though Saturday!  I can't wait to show it off this weekend!!!  I'm just a little giddy thinking about it!  :D

You are bringing this book when you come back to TRF next season, right? Right? Already have you on my schedule for Pirate Weekend.

Aye, aye, Friend Ravic!

We'll have both Black Flags and Echoes with us and I hope to get a good representation of the authors as well!  I think we can count on Captain Jasper and I, Captain Emerald, Diamond, Captain Taffy, and I am working on getting several more there to put in an appearance.  Like I always say, "the more the merrier!"

If this gathering were to happen over the All Hallow's weekend, I could almost guarantee my attendance...  Not really sure about any other weekend, though, since it's such a drive for me...
