Fan Mail

Wow! I just got THE most complimentary email about my writing. Oddly enough, it was sent by someone who didn't even know I'd written a book. He definitely knew that I write for the body art industry trade publication, Pain Magazine, because he works there! He wrote to comment on one of my articles:
Hi Elayne: I’m writing this short email to just let you know that I loved your column in the April issue. Well, you could have knocked me over when I read your April column – this was one of the best pieces of writing I have read in any magazine for a long time. of PAIN Magazine. I come from the world of book publishing (Random House, Abrams to name two), but since moving to New Mexico four years ago I have entered the magazine world (previous to this Head Quest, PAIN, and Aura position I was with Mothering Magazine); and, being very new to PAIN Magazine, I try to pick up copies and read them whenever I have time. And so, in addition to being informative (you have helped educate me on one of the aspects of piercing with which I was not knowledgeable) , it was immensely entertaining. I thank you for that. Now, I will find some back issues, and look forward to your new column in the upcoming PAIN. It is always a treat to find someone whose writing is worth reading. And I wanted to tell you that. All the best, Mark
