Hello All!

We have an announcement to make about the standard release date of new Hidden Gems issues. It is tale, told by an idiot, or Fool in this case, full of sound and fury, and hopefully, signifying nothing that drastic or inconvenient.

When Select, which is now Hidden Gems, first launched back in March of 2001 it had a standard release date of the third Thursday of every month. This release date worked best with the schedules, and deadlines of the writers and editors. When we launched Hidden Gems it was our intent to maintain this release date. Unfortunately, we all know what road is paved with good intentions, and now we are announcing a change to that date.

Hidden Gems August issue will be released next Thursday, July 17, this is the third Thursday in July. However, this will be the last third Thursday release.

Starting with the September issue, Hidden Gems will move to the fourth Thursday of the month, the September issue will be released on August 28. This fourth Thursday release date will be the standard hereafter.

The reasons for this change have to do with scheduling of resources, mostly Tom's. With the NPR radio show, his editorial and book writing schedule, as well as cross country speaking engagements, this release time is the best fit. Since Tom is committed to Hidden Gems, and he is the boss after all, we needed to make this change.

To all the long time subscribers, who are used to the old third Thursday release, we apologize for the inconvenience that this change of date may cause, but it is the best way to make sure that the quality of the product is upheld.

Fool On!
