For 14 years, I've been sending out my newsletter, Doing It Write, to subscribers around the world. Recently, though, I discovered that Topica, which handled sending out the newsletter, had decided to no longer support free text-only newsletters, and just quit sending out the newsletter.
So, I've decided to put it up here on Straight From Hel. Over the course of a week, I'll post sections of the newsletter. Let me know what you think.

As the publishing industry continues to evolve, this program presents an exciting new outlet for our clients' work, and emphasizes our continued commitment to serve them at the highest level." (Joe Veltre, Head of Gersh's book department)
