I recently sent out a group message and realized that we now have 400 members in our group. I love it. When I first joined the group, there was only about 100 members. I want to thank everyone who has helped make this such an awesome group, and especially Amy for creating the group and getting it started.

And congratulations to Jennifer Novotny for being our 400th member. I feel like we should give her a prize or something.

She wouldnt believe you, John! She would just think its one of those automated msgs we get on lots of websites tellingbus we are the one millionth visitor ;)

Thanks Amy for creating this group and to you John for being a great mod and caretaker.

If you look at the group member listing, you can order them by the date they joined the group. It says Jennifer joined on March 1, making her the official 400th group member.

Thank you Carl. How is the new book coming? I can't wait.


message 10: by Carl (new)

Carl  Ashmore (carlashmore) | 119 comments Well, I hope you've uploaded the revised version of TH1. It is available now and it's seven thousand words longer.

I'm actually scribbling some of TH3 at the moment. It could take some time, this one. Let's just say it's the only book that I know that features The Beatles, the 1938 Nazi expedition to Tibet and the real secret of the Sphinx :)

How did I not know about the revised version of TH1? Oh, my gosh. I'm SO excited. This will help me get through the dry spell as a wait for TH3. Keep up the great work.


message 12: by Carl (new)

Carl  Ashmore (carlashmore) | 119 comments I hope to, my friend.

Sane here! I thought your were kidding about rewriting the first book, Carl, I recall we jeered you about it...now it looks like you have the last laugh...I now humbly seek the revised edition on Kindle :)

Wow. I step away from the group for a couple of months and we've jumped to 414 members? Thanks for keeping everything running so smoothly, John & Tej.

No problem, Amy. Welcome back.

Paul Jones (paulantonyjones) | 32 comments Ha! You think 400 is good? Wait until this time next year ... trust me, I've been there ;)

Paul, we started out in 2008 and really had nothing much going on for quite a while until we turned it into a reading club during the last year. I tried to model our turn-around on the success of the Apocalypse Anywhere group after it turned into a reading club. Funny how that worked out in our favor with a website full of readers. ;-)

Hey Amy ... that was my sad attempt at time travel humor. I'll just stick to what I know in the future (pardon the pun). Time travel seems to be a severely under appreciated genre; it's good to see such a strong representation here.

Ha. I so didn't get that. I thought you meant you've seen a forum group take off quickly in one year before. Duh. Next time, you'll apparently have to add a rimshot for me.

:) I'll just stick to what I know from now on. Four hundred is great by the way, but I'm quite sure the group will keep growing.

Ken Magee Congratulations to us - we time travellers need to stick together!

I'm glad that you're so excited about this group, Carol. Feel free to dive right into our conversations!


message 24: by Amy, Queen of Time (new)

Amy | 2210 comments Mod
Carol: I checked your profile and notice that you're a time travel writer. Be sure to introduce yourself and your books in the Time Travel Books By Members discussion section. Next time we nominate a group member book for our book club selection, don't be shy about nominating yours. :-)

Louise | 9 comments Someone was the number 727 but did not liked it. Now we are again 726. Maybe is a bad luck number :)
