Dear Ghostvillagers,

I know it's been a little while since our last newsletter, and my response to that is... tough! These things don't write themselves, you know. If our Witch friends out there have any spells for making me write these things faster, please let me know.

Speaking of writing, I want to say thank you to all of the people who have written in with questions and comments on my "Legends of the Supernatural" column. Every other week, I will continue to bring you folklore, investigations, and interviews on the supernatural. And I would like your help in spreading the word! I'm currently speaking with a few different newspapers about the possibility of running my column in their publications. You can help by contacting your local newspapers and alternative weeklies and asking for the column by name. You can send them to our Web site, or give me the name and email address of the editor and I'll send an introductory message. 

Over the last few months, we have grown quite a bit. We have added over 600 new subscribers, our Town Square message board members have grown by several hundred, and we continue to see new faces. What makes our community great is the diverse background that each of you bring to our giant table.

Please keep your questions and comments coming, and be sure to tell your friends about us.

Hey, when you have a minute, check out >>this<< post in the Town Square message boards. Many of our Ghostvillagers have posted pictures of themselves.
