November 3 2015 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings and Salutations -

After many months of effort I think we've finally gotten all our mail systems flowing smoothly! AT&T was the big issue and they simply refused to respond back for quite a while. I finally got to someone to work with and they believe they've released all the blocks, which then cascades down to a whole slew of other mail systems.

I've been holding back on emails while we worked through this so it didn't "make things worse" by having even more email blocked. But I just sent a low carb newsletter out and it looks like it went through smoothly. Hurrah!

Please respond back to this so I can figure out if there's still any mail servers out there that haven't caught up with the news. And please continue to ignore any bounce-backs with newsletters or such, just in case. Once I confirm that everyone is getting mail smoothly we should be all set - just in time for the high-volume holiday season! Hurrah x 2! :).

Many of us use YouTube as a way to spread news on our topic areas. If you haven't logged into your YouTube account in a while, it's important to do that as the need confirmation on a new system. Your videos might be taken down until you do that. So for any and all YouTube accounts you maintain, log in and make sure you're up to date.

Similarly, Amazon just implemented their COPPA (child protection) blocks. If you haven't logged into your Amazon affiliate account in a while make sure you do that. Otherwise you may stop earning that income until you do.

November means National Novel Writing Month! This is a GREAT way to make progress on any fiction-writing project with support and encouragement. Here's a place to learn more about it and to share your news.


It's that time of year! Let me know if you'd like to participate in our Secret Santa for 2015. I'll be drawing names on Nov 16th so get your address in to me by then to participate!

Mark your calendar! We'll do an editor chat on Wednesday, November 11th from 9pm - 12 midnight EST. That gives a range of times for people in other time zones to be able to poke in and participate. We'll do it in Google so if you don't have a free Google account yet, set one up. I'll send along the link as we get closer. We can talk about using YouTube to spread your topic's word, about how to earn money with Amazon affiliate accounts, and much more.

Enjoy your week! And don't forget to let me know you got this :).
