  • More about Renee's role in "One Weekend a Month" | Renee is the star of this movie. The actors who play her children are the only other people on screen. "It's the story of a National Guardsman, who's a single mother of two children and gets called to go to the Iraqi war. But she's in a bind because she has no one to take care of her children. The film is a ten-minute series of phone calls. There is no script. The whole Thing is improvised." | Thanks to Sharon for the info.

Lucy Magazine Alert - NZ New Idea - 10 August 2004

"Saving Lives" article is typical of the generosity and dedication Lucy has towards the plight of needy children. The story shows the child that Lucy sponsors through the World Vision organisation and the impact that her sponsorship has on their family. There is 2 great pics of Lucy in her Xena days and a large beautiful casual pose of a more recent Lucy. There are also 3 pics of Even (sponsored child) and his family and home in Bangladesh. This is a 2 page spread article and shows why we are such keen fans of Lucy Lawless!

The Bard's Corner

After due consideration, T Novan has decided to return his XWP fan fiction to Mary D's site.  However, he will not be reposting any uber or original fiction, including the draft version of Words Heard in Silence.

There has been some speculation that T Novan asked that his work be pulled from the web because of a discussion that occurred on a fellow author's list recently.  The dialogue on that list was not the reason - the personal emails to TN over the past weeks about TN's decision to remove 18 pages of
explicit sex scenes from the published version of Words Heard in Silence were the reason.  Some of those private comments were incredibly insulting and diminishing.

In the past six years, TN has published over 300 titles, all of which were made available to you, the readers, for free, including early drafts of works that were eventually published.  From the comments he received in recent weeks, two things appear obvious.  First, it is not beneficial for people to see raw versions of a work.  If the finish product does not contain things that the reader liked in the draft version but got edited out as the author continued to develop the work, the backlash is vicious. Second, from the comments that some people made, it appears that if a lesbian themed novel does not contain explicit sexual content, it is not worth reading.  That second message is particularly painful, as TN puts a great deal of effort into telling rich, complex stories that look at all of the dynamics of human relationships, not just what goes on in the bedroom.

As some of you know, TN has been going through a period of personal stress, with health and other issues consuming a good portion of his time and energy.  He is currently in a retreat, taking time to put some things in perspective.  Therefore, if you have any questions or comments, please direct them to me, as his publisher and partner.

Starship Lucy Appeal

Forwarded by Ann from the Starship Foundation about donating the Lucy Lawless Appeal and having it credited to the Lucy Appeal and also a note about Lucy signing the letters:

If you would like to donate towards the Lucy Lawless Appeal on the website click on the “Priority Equipment” drop down and that will ensure that her appeal gets the donation.  That is how we manage the donations for when we run Lucy’s Appeals.

Lucy was really happy to sign the letters – I’m sure that she would have had a sore hand when she had finished! She is a great lady to have around.  She certainly brightens up the days of the children here at the hospital when she comes to visit.

Thank you for your support, we really appreciate it.

  • Kathryn Morris (Najara) article about her hit show "Cold Squad (one of my favourite shows) - the following is from the Rocky Mountain News - 12 August 2004

Xena Xena Everywhere

Xena has become such a cult show  that references to the show and the mythical sword-weilding warrior has entered the mainstream media This section of the site is going to be about fun and how the media brings Xena to the forefront of advertising, mentions in TV shows & magazines, newspapers & song.

  • Xena reference in the article - 'Toolbelt Diva' Hopes to Inspire Handywomen
    Vally pushes her girl power doctrine every chance she can — on the show and off — transforming the home improvement term do-it-yourself into a Xena-like war cry for women. There are other female-friendly home improvement shows like Lifetime's "Merge" and WE's "She House." But none are as feminist-friendly as "Diva." Vally says "Toolbelt Diva" is much more than just another home improvement show. This one's got a message.

Hairspray Opening Night After Party - 21 July 2004

REAF Benefit News

The following is from Crystal about the Help Is on the Way Programs - a note from Ken Henderson from REAF.

He said that there were plenty of programs left if anyone would still like to purchase some.  As for those of you who received some surprises when you opened your program from the mail, this is what he said:

"We had Lucy sign a stack of programs and we've had a number of orders since the benefit. I'm mailing the last of the pre-signed ones today so any orders that come in now will not have her signature. The poor girl had a stack of signing to do backstage plus all the autographs she signed after the show. I gave her a stack of 50 sign and about 40 were sold before the benefit.  We didn't advertise them as signed, I just thought that would be a nice surprise for people...."


So if you didn't order your program...no Lucy auto if you order them now but don't let that stop you. REAF is a great organisation to support. You can order your program from http://www.richmondermet.org/reaf10.1/help10.html

The REAF benefit was fantastic!  The entertainers were fabulous!  And Lucy knocked the socks off the room!!  <G>  She surprised the heck out of many people in that audience who had no clue what she looked like in real life and that she could sing so well.  Hi five, girl, you done good!

The Xena fans were out in force supporting Lucy and REAF and she sends her thanks to all who made the trip, who bought programs online and made donations to the charity and helped pay for the ad in the program booklet.  She feels so much better when you folks are in the house and thinking about her sending good vibes from far away <G>
