Dear Reader,

I can't believe we are already in our fourth month, and CFOM has had over 15,400 visitors and 34,000 page loads. We continue to experiment with columns, and by observing readers' interests based on individual page views, we can continually improve the content in our magazine and offer readers what they want. If you read last month's issue then you saw that we've added new material again. Rachel's Rubies is a hit and as long as readers want it, we plan to keep it on the site. That is the same for every column. So if you have a column you really enjoy, make sure to read it every month.

We have more new columns coming up in the near future. One is for Book Videos. If you want to see the best movie trailers in the biz and find out how the authors created them, this is a page you will want to visit. Video trailers by Ginger Garrett, Grace Bridges, Diann Mills, and Jill Elizabeth Nelson are just a few of the samples we'll have for you, plus they will tell you the stories behind them. Doesn't that sound great? So if you have an interesting book video, let us know and we may find a spot for you in 2009.

We are also introducing a column titled Publisher's Choice. Since the magazine is even more popular than anticipated, and I've been booking into late 2009 and early 2010 for some columns, some great content is being pushed too far into the future. We don't want to miss a great feature when one comes our way, so Bonnie decided to add this column to feature "whatever we want." We already have some special treats up our sleeves.

Last, Jim Rubart, an advertising whiz and expert in how to get the word out about fiction will be heading up a column as well. Once we think up the right title for the column I will let you know where to find it. He's got great insight and a fabulous sense of humor, so his column will be a hit. I guarantee it.

Do you have anything you'd like to see in future issues of CFOM? Bonnie and I want to hear from our readers, so drop us a note by going to the About Us link at the bottom of any page and fill out the form. We're looking forward to your feedback.

Also, don’t forget to STEAL our cover button HTML code and paste it everywhere! How else will people know we exist if they don't see online links? Thanks!
