*toots her own horn*

A lady from a newspaper in Massachusetts contacted me today and we did a short interview. She said she might mention me and Charley in her article. Yay!

In other news, the computer did the refuse-to-start thing again today. I decided to try alternatives besides the Startup Repair thing that erased all my software. And lo, I found System Restore, which restores the comp to a previous date, and that worked without me having to reinstall everything!

    IS YOUR VACATION ABOUT OVER? LOL. I miss the updates. You deserve the full attention, of course, Meaghan, of anyone doing articles or books about the gone-missing. I’ve been lurking on Websleuths, reading cold-case threads, and The Charley Project is linked-to an abundance of times by those presenting evidence about said cases. You are a primary source, therefore, for many interested in these matters, and so, again, OF COURSE you get inquiries from writers! And thanks for all you do, from everyone who clicks on this site.

    *pats Anthony’s shoulder* Less than a week to go, honey. You can hold out that long, surely?

    I don’t think the newspaper lady actually used my interview for her article, but that happens. I have spoken with the book writer. She hasn’t really interviewed me yet; it was just sort of a getting to know you chat. She seems very nice and I am flattered by the attention. It’s mostly the Doe Network that gets this sort of thing. They promote themselves a lot more than I do.

    (A. swoons.)

    Yeah, Doe does promote itself. I check it every once in awhile but it seems primarily to deal in corpses, to be blunt: “An unidentified male in Texas has been added to the site” seems to be their niche, which is fine.

    You have the advantage over the others because of the extra-literate—nay, literary!—tone of your write-ups. Well-written things tend to make people care more. At least me, anyways.
