For Immediate Release

We have a new look and a new name! As of August 31, 2000, we are now Ventura Area Romance Authors, with ROMANCING THE STONE as our new newsletter name. Still the same champagne. Still the same chocolate.

And to make the news even sweeter, VARA is an online chapter in our brave new cyberworld.

We will meet every month in our chat room with guest editors and publishers.

Which means all our friends who have relocated all over the world can join us, too!

So, get set for all the latest market news and all the best interviews from the people who keep the romance industry humming.

Be sure to download the free gifts and check back often to see what's happenin'.

Please send me all your news and gossip for inclusion in ROMANCING THE STONE. Now, we won't have to wait for the print copy. News can go online as it breaks!

Welcome to VARA! I hope you'll be back often.
