This is a notice to all of you FaithWriters members who have been trying to access the FaithWriters site and can't. You're probably pulling your hair out wondering WHY!

I'm here to prevent your baldness.

FaithWriters experienced a server meltdown and we're in the process of upgrading to a better server. Please be patient as the kinks are worked out (even after the site is back online, there are sure to be a few). It will probably won't be until sometime tomorrow morning (the 7th) that the site is back up.

Also...an FYI...this server is better, which means it costs a lot more money, which means we need to really boost revenue. At the risk of sounding like I'm begging--which I am--please, please, please...if you're NOT yet a 500 member, consider signing up. Not only will you receive FABULOUS benefits exclusively for you, but you will be helping to keep FaithWriters alive. For those of you who already are 500 members, you can help by:

1. Praying for the site to grow and for members to be blessed and able to give
2. Spreading the word about how awesome the 500 membership is (it IS!)
3. Sponsor another member who may not be able to afford the $10 per month.

Now, for all of you who are wondering just what you get for $10 per month (payable by credit card or PAYPAL, by the way), here are the features you receive as a 500 member:

*FREE access to the Private Messenger System
*FREE EZ Site Builder – build a professional looking website in minutes!
*FREE web-based email service (@FaithWriters.net address)
*Discount on publishing services from a major Christian publisher
*HUGE discount on all editing and manuscript assessment services
*FREE listings of your e-book in our e-book store (you keep ALL the profits!)
*FREE advertising of your book or other writing related services
*Access to exclusive Weekly Writing Articles (Go, Glenn! These are AWESOME articles!)
*Eligibility for the annual PAGE TURNER Contest (first place receives $800 cash, plus other prizes!)
*Large discount on Sally Stuart’s Christian Writers’ Market Guide (just ordered my 2009 copy yesterday at a savings of over $10)
*Large discount on Writers Digest magazine
*The chance to be featured on the FaithWriters Home Page
*Opportunities to be published in the FaithWriters magazine
*A gold 500 emblem next to your name (readers’ eyes are drawn first to those icons!)
*A star next to all of the FREE REPRINT articles you post (more easily catch the attention of editors and publishers on the prowl!)

As you can see, the benefits far outweight the cost of $10 per month!

Seriously, FaithWriters has blessed my life more than I can tell you. It is THE site that re-jump-started my writing career. I have grown as a writer, been published numerous times over, and have gotten more freelance work than I ever dreamed exclusively through FaithWriters.com. NOT TO MENTION, have met some of the bestest friends I've ever had!

FaithWriters is near and dear to my heart and I am asking--no, begging--you to sign up as a 500 member. I firmly believe that YOU will be DOUBLY blessed for it.

If you have any questions about FaithWriters or the 500 membership, don't hesitate to contact me.

In the meantime, be patient as we switch to a new and improved server.

I've been praying, dear Lynda, especially that more people would sponsor another.

Thanks. You know how wired those of us that lurk around the Theology Forum are. The last thing we need is something else to set us off. Like your site by the way.
