Letter from the Publisher

November 1st 2009

Dear Readers,

We are entering into the month of Thanksgiving. With the present economic climate, the massive number of job losses, and the pandemic of H1N1 flu there doesn’t seem to be much reason to give thanks.

But take in a deep breath and let it out…

Now give thanks to our Lord Jesus for every additional day that He gives to each of us. Let us strive every day to bring glory to His name. Life goes on and we all must move forward.

Our Editor-In-Chief Michelle Sutton has resigned from the magazine, effective as of October 2nd. We wish her well in all that she pursues. For the foreseeable future I will add the EIC work to my present job as owner and Publisher.

We continue to have an amazing staff, with Erin Brown of WriteEditor.net as the line editor of all of our columns, Pamela Morrisson of Daysong Graphics as our Graphics Artist, and Andie Johnson as our Quality Control person.

And our family of columnists are the best and brightest in the business of Christian fiction. The Lord has truly blessed us. But sometimes the journey gets hard, and there comes a time to set priorities. To that end, Trish Perry of Real Life Is Stranger, has stepped down from her column to pursue her writing career. But the vacuum has quickly been filled by Joyce Magnin, debut author of The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow. You must read her column about Thanksgiving in her house as a child!

You will also notice that we have a new magazine header compliments of my friend, the budding designer and leader of Marcher Lord Press, Jeff Gerke. I have also brought the ECPA lists to the Home tab so that the lists are readily accessible. And the one other change at this time: the Book Trailers have migrated to the Berzerk Tab!

God bless you all this Thanksgiving season!

Bonnie S. Calhoun
