Hi Ellen,

I noticed that you mentioned me on your list. I am very honored and happy. Thank you!

However, I noticed that my name was slightly wrong on the list. (I don't know if this is the place to mention it or if there is an email list.)

Andrews, Jason “Moonlight in Scarlet,” Cover of Darkness September.

It should be Andrew. I often get the S on the end of my last name.

Re: Name slightly wrong

oops. Sorry. Yup, this is the place. Will fix (sorry)

(Deleted comment)
You're very welcome. As long as I keep receiving them, I'll notice them :-) If only all publishers would send me their eligible material--and on time.

Thank you for this, Ellen. And I'm glad you liked my little poem!

Holy smokes...thank you so much for the mention!

(yes, I am doing a dance in my living room in 3...2...1...!)
