Letter from the Editor
The New Majestic
The Write Off
Okay, I'm running a little late! I'll try not to let it happen again. I'm very excited about all that we've got going on
at the site. Last month we broke our all time record for visitors and page views with over 20,000 page views. We are also working
on the new Lit.Org Viewer that will allow easier story reading online. We are also making great progress with your Book Publishing
venture. We will be publishing at least three books this year under the Lit.Org Publishing imprint! We've also got Lit.Org swag.
You can help your fellow authors by purchasing Lit.Org T-Shirts, Mugs, Mousepads, Hats and more. All the proceeds will be used
to build a pool that we can offer as prizes. And speaking of prizes, we'll be giving away some T-Shirts, Books, and much more
in the coming weeks.
This coming Thursday is St. Valentines Day. And as a special treat, I'll be putting up a special Valentine page linking to some
of the great stories on the site that represents Valentines Day - Lit.Org style. As if that's not enough, Parteepants and myself
have been working on a story that's already over 3500 words, over six pages, which will be released Valentines day. So Happy Valentines
Day. We hope you spend it with your loved one. If not, spend it with us and sleep on the couch!
So, until next time, read, write, and comment!

As you can no doubt see, Majestic is all new this issue. Not only is it now a super cool html newsletter, it will aslo be a weekly
newsletter starting with the next issue! We have switched our newsletter software for the Majestic newsletter from Topica to Constant
Contact. There is nothing you need to do, except sit back and enjoy.
Future issues of Majestic will have much more original content, and will also be archived on the web site. Look for the url next issue.
But in the mean time, send us your submissions for Majestic.
Next week's write off is going to bring in some new blood. I'm not going to spoil it by telling you who, but Parteepants has
wrangled some people who haven't played our sick little game before. It's going to be good!
I'd like to remind everyone to help out with the Write Off, even if you don't write for it, every vote helps. Read and Vote
for both stories. Visit the Write Off from the Features section on the front

The Thread has lied dormant now for a few weeks so I think it's high time we get a new one going. To make
this one a little different, Kross has signed on to be this month's "Guest Thread Spinner." I'm sure he'll
come up with something exciting and invigorating that we can all sink our teeth into. His post will be up
by Wednesday. For an update on the rules, and etiquette, just click on "The Thread" link at Lit.Org's
Good luck Kross, and I hope we see a lot of new faces
participating this time around.
