Updated Author List - Simple Pleasures Book

Postby Deb Porter » Tue Jun 26, 2012 2:35 am

Hi everyone.

This is an updated list of the authors we still need releases from. Some I have heard from, but if you see your name here and you haven't received an email from me, please let me know. Or if I haven't indicated I've heard from them, and you know them, please contact them for us. (Thank you Beth LaBuff for contacting Elizabeth Baize!)

Updated July 2:

Amy Wiley (she's good for it, so no chasing required)
April Bailey
Debora Dyess (heard from Deb)
Dolores Stohler
Elizabeth Baize (heard from Elizabeth)
Erin Brannan (heard from Erin! Hooray)
James Clem (heard from Jim. Yay!)
Janet Bannister (just heard from Janet! Praise God for pointing me to her.)
Joanne Malley
Kenn Allan (heard from Kenn)
Stephanie Bullard (heard from Stephanie)
Tabiatha Tallent (heard from Tab ... thanks to whoever got through to her)
Teri Wilson (heard from Teri; she's good for it)
Virginia Lutz

If you know any of the authors who haven't made any contact yet, please let them know I'm looking for them.

We're getting there. I don't even mind if the response is "no." I just need to hear from everyone (if possible). Mail out happening next.

Love, Deb

Thanks ladies. The more spreading the word, the better.

A lot of the time, it's not that their email addresses have changed. It's just that my emails are probably going straight to junk (or being blocked before they even get there). Email is such a pain.

We're getting there. I'll be announcing Book 2 in the next week or so (just want to get most of the authors settled with this one first).

I messaged Sandy on FB too (and Tab - which worked, apparently LOL).

SOO hoping you find Joanne especially. LOVED her stuff!

Yes, I hope I can track Joanne down as well. The email is definitely not getting through.

The one good thing is that I do have ways of finding most people (what would we do without the internet?). Even so, member to member help has worked the best so far.

No luck so far with Cindy Yarger--she's not replying to my emails. I'll try one more time, but you may not be able to get her.

Next step will be phone calls and snail mail (where possible). I already managed to catch one via snail mail. In the meantime, I'll be getting all the other articles ready for approval with the authors. So if you have signed my release for this book, keep an eye on your email.

Deb,
Sent you a PM via FaceBook. I haven't been checking my emails or going onto FaceBook as often as I used to, so probably missed your messages. Sorry about that.

Okay, I Googled the problem and I guess from now on I'll have to use IE7 to access my hotmail account instead of Firefox. Something about the file storage and compatibility. I could not find any recent emails from you, though. Could you resend, please?

No worries, Sandra. If you don't receive it in the next 30 minutes, let me know. We'll try something different.

Love, Deb

PS (The forums are showing a different email address for you as well, so I've sent it to both. The non-hotmail one will probably bounce.)

Sigh ... another author found my email in her spam box after I made contact with her eventually on Facebook. Email is sooooo hard these days.

Having said that, I'm just so thankful there are ways to find most of the people.

Tracking down the final authors is taking all my Googling/Detective skills available.

I found Erin today and that what such a joy! One out of seven isn't bad. :lol: I think I can find the rest, but it's probably going to mean letters the old fashioned way. That drags things out a little longer, unfortunately, but it can't be helped.

We're getting there. :D

Hey - Deb. Just a thought. Would it be faster (for the US folks, anyway) to email me (or Mike or Bea or Lynda or someone like that) and have US send it? Just so the snail mail doesn't have to cross the ocean? I'm willing. Just a thought :)

Had thought of asking Jan to do that, but I've got the letters all prepared, so I'll just send them today. They should get them by the end of the week (start of next week). Hopefully.

There are actually only three letters I'm sending out today. The other three are people I'm still hopeful will respond via other contacts online.

If there's no response by email by the due date on these letters, then we have to move on without them.
