Important! ListBot Service to be discontinued
As many of you may already be aware, Microsoft decided last week to shut down the free ListBot service that distributes this email newsletter, effective August 20. Instead, Microsoft is looking for people to upgrade to the $150 per year ListBuilder service. Needless to say, that's a little pricey for a newsletter sent once a month.
The good news is that Yahoo Groups is still open to any and all subscribers, so I have created a new account with their service. Another piece of excellent news is that Yahoo doesn't require that you sign up for one of their accounts to join a mailing list, which they require for some of their other services. The bad news is that everyone has to sign up again. To sign up, visit http://www.dragonlance.com/news/ and just enter your email address in the form. You will receive a confirmation email, and once you reply to that you'll be on the list. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Chat
The Dragonlance Nexus and Dragonlance.com are co-sponsoring a chat session with famed Dragonlance authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman! The chat will take place Friday, July 20th at 9:00pm EST on mIRC Server: irc.tri-net.org, PORT: 6667, Channel: #Dragonlance. We are gathering questions ahead of time, so please post your questions. Also, fans will have the chance to speak with Weis and Hickman live, so be sure to mark your calendar. We'll post more info on the chat page as the date draws nearer.
Also make sure to check out the chat pages to get the schedule for information on all of the weekly chats sponsored by Dragonlance.com.
Jean Rabe's "Betrayal", part of the Dhamon Saga, and Mary Herbert's "Dragon's Bluff" are the new books that have been recently released. There are a number of new releases slated for later this year, so we'll keep you up to date as release dates approach. You might also want to check out some of our additions to the back catalog on Dragonlance.com, with a list of old Dragonlance modules and hard-to-find products.
Several new features are coming to Dragonlance.com very soon! The first is already here -- customizable menus. You can choose which areas of the site interest you the most and have those added to the main menu of the site. In addition, we're looking to add another quiz-type game to the site in the near future, with more planned after that! We should also be bringing the message boards 'in-house' in the very near future, as well as a new and improved links section.
That's the news for now! Until next time, I bid you farewell.
