Greetings and Salutations -

I hope you had a lovely beginning to April! Spring is coming, with all its fresh starts and new beginnings. This is a perfect time for you to take in a deep breath, embrace what life is sending you, and see what challenges you can accomplish!

I just caught up on all editor email. Hurrah! If you have any fresh questions for me, feel free to send them along. For the editors in launch who are still in my hands, I will work on contacting each of you tomorrow with a status update or review.

The votes are in! With a near unanimous choice, Boston MA was the winner for our upcoming Fall gathering. It's a lovely city! Lots to do and see. Now we have to decide when. Please let me know which weekends in the fall you would want to go. I'll see what works best for the most people, and we'll go from there!

I have now enabled the epub option in our ebook area. You don't have to make an epub - it's fine to simply list PDFs. However, if you offer an EPUB as well you could easily get more buyers, because now people who use EPUBs will buy them as well. Also, once you have that EPUB file you can list it on Amazon and Apple as well, for free, and earn income there too. If you have any questions about making an EPUB, start here -


and let me know what you need help with!


Connie, our ADD editor, would like to arrange a mini-gathering in the midwest in the summer. This would be a casual, friendly get-together for editors in the area. If you're interested, contact Connie for more info!



Facebook has now rolled out their top banner area for all of their pages. It's a great way to emphasize your page content! For a great example, take a look at Shala's beadworking page -


Shala's happy to share her banner template if anyone wants to use that as a starting point!

I hope you're having a delightful spring. If you have goals you'd like to reach, be sure to post in the forums and we'll cheerlead you along!
