My Light Magazine

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope the holidays have been good to all of you. Are you ready for 2009?

A new year often brings changes. Things are no different here at My Light Magazine. It has been brought to our attention that the Magazine is not very user-friendly at times. In the last two months, we have had several problems, including access to the website, problems with the PDF and the archive section.

I want you all to know that we at My Light Magazine take these issues seriously, as we want nothing less than top quality service to our readers.

This is where the changes are coming in. We are working on a whole section of archives, but it is slow moving. November and December should be up when the January issue comes out.

We believe we have resolved the PDF problem and there should be no more issues with that. Of course, a main goal we have is to figure out why the website is difficult to access. I have several theories, but we need to take a closer look at it and maybe have another pair of eyes looking at it.

As always, thank you for your support. If there are any other issues that you notice, feel free to send me an e-mail at editor@mylightmagazine.com or to my assistant Editor, Jaclyn Morales at Jaclynmorales@mylightmagazine.com .

A Star in the Night: Coming Soon!

My first picture book, A Star in the Night, is now listed as "coming soon" on Guardian Angel Publishing's website. Click here to see it. It is the last book in the selection. It isn't up for sale yet, but I promise I will let you know when it is available. Illustrator John Blackford is doing a tremendous job with the pictures.
