It is with a heavy heart that I write this to you. Unfortunately, we will not be able to release our issue on Monday, June 23, 2014 to you like it was originally planned and scheduled. A production problem occurred yesterday with the issue templates that we usually work off of, and all of the information added throughout the quarter and stored on those working templates was lost. Therefore, it is too late now to go back and try to reconstruct all of the information in time for issue release. Also, since most, if not all, of our small production team is involved in other work or personal activities besides this e-newsletter, not enough time is able to be dedicated to finish the reconstruction on time by the 23rd.
But not to worry, we still have all of your submissions (if you happen to send to us or add in the appropriate areas on our Dovebook website) so that we can publish those in the next issue coming your way (for those dates, visit our e-newsletter website). As a result, this next issue, Issue #14, will not only cover April-May-June but also July-August-September 2014 and will be released on Tuesday, September 23 as a double: Issues #14-15. The good news about this is that you can still send us anything for publication (that you haven’t already) for this next double issue. If you already happen to submit something, you are welcome to submit something else and as many times as you would like.
Our most sincere apologies for the technical problem we are experiencing. These things can and do happen unexpectedly, and all we can do, like in this case, is let you know as soon as we are made aware of the problem. If you have any questions, comments, submissions, or would like to get in contact with our e-newsletter about anything else, please don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail (our address is included at the end of this post). You can also visit our e-newsletter at its website (that address is also included at the end of this post) and its page at http://the-columbidaes-cooer.tumblr.com/ for more information. Thank you for reading us and for your support! We appreciate it so much.
