An Apology

From: thorn
Sent on: Saturday, February 22, 2014 2:21 PM
Yesterday I made a severe blunder. I intended to inform everyone on my mailing list of the status of our current contest and invite additional entries.

I have always sent such communications as a blind copy, in respect to everyone's privacy. We NEVER give out your email addresses.

But rather than the email going out as a blind copy, you were listed as a direct recipient, and as such, exposed at least to the possibility of spamming.

This was entirely unintentional.

A Word with You Press has been a de-facto writers' workshop on line since 2009, and during that time we have helped hundreds of writers develop their skills by publishing them on line where they have had the benefit of peer and professional critique, all at no cost. Some fees that we have collected for contests have never even matched the dollar value of the prizes we have offered.

In other words, we are trying to do some good in the world.

I sincerely hope you will consider that fact before judging us (me, actually) too harshly for this serious breach of trust.

I apologize for any harm this may have done, and I don't take any of you for granted.

There is certainly no excuse.

Please forgive me.
