Announcement from Peddlers' Group
Peddlers Group is pleased to announce the release of the brand new, Revised Edition of

The Amazon Queen by L. M. Townsend-Crow

Where is the Antique glory now become,
That whilome wont in women to appear?
Where be the brave achievements done by some?
Where be the battles, where the shield and spear,
And all the conquests, which them high did rear,
That matter made for famous Poets verse,
And boastful men so oft abashed to hear?
Be they all dead, and laid in doleful hearse?
Or do they only sleep, and shall again reverse?

Edmund Spenser

Open the book and awaken them, turn the page and bring them back. Let The Amazon Queen transport you back to join them in that mythical time and place, the where and when of sisterhood, honor, and integrity.

If you read this story online or even the first published edition, you havent read this book!!! This revised edition has been completely reworked and rewritten by the author. In fact, this version is so improved from what was already an incredibly good story, it is almost as if Artemis herself guided the quill.

Announcement From CousinLiz:

I just wanted to alert you all that I have been in and out of the hospital 4 times just since this past Spet, with the last stay taking 5 weeks. Unfortunately, because of my size (and I am down to 248lbs from 520lbs -- this w/ NO stomach surguries), they still repeatedly kept using the lift to get m e in & out of bed, so now I am almost unable to stand up on my own anymore because I have lost what little muscle tone I had in my lower extremities before all of the hospital stays. I am currently in Good Shepherd Rehab in Allentown PA -- that is if they can still win the fight with my health insurance to allow me to continue here, and nnot send me to a nursing home for "rehab" where I know they will never work my butt off like they've been doing here for the past 3 days I've been here.

Please know that if you've been trying to reach me -- I apologize. I just found over 2,000 emails in my inbox, with 85% of them beibg in Russia. What's up with that?!?!?! But like I said, if you've been trying to reach me -- PLEASE re-email me, since I was doing some whollesale deleting.

Also, if someone here could kindly alert other "XENA" mailing lists of what has become of me -- that wopuld be FANTASTIC!!! I just dont't have the energy to try to email everyone.

As for Soulmates -- don't fear. I had been in the process of reloading the files I had been able to salvage from my "bad" backup hard drive, but it appears I have only lost a few parts of my site -- though fan fiction should be safe -- as I had recently uploaded it just before my catastrophic loss of data.

Please wish me luck -- as I will definitely NEED it. Since if I can't get back to work -- in some fashion - I will not only lose my job of 25yrs, but also the small house I had JUST purchased here in Whitehall weeks before all of this hospital "crap" started.

I really miss reading the emails -- and just hearing from all of you -- even if I've been mostly a lurker when it comes to replying. But I will try harder -- though getting to use the PC here is not easy.

Hopefully I have successfully UNbounced my yahoo emails, and will start to receive them soon. but I apologize if I didn't get the UNbouncing set up properly.

Hopefully you'll hear from me again -- and apologies for any and all mis-spellings above :)

Have a FANTASTIC 2010!
