I received this from a writer who was initially contacted by Angela. I've copied the subsequent email he received and changed only one thing. I put "author's name" in place of his real name. I now present you with the Letter from Spain:
Dear author's name:
Thank you very much for the story. I simply loved it when I read it, and
now I'm honored to get it publish.. I hope this will reinforce our
SÓnish readers to write their own stories and tales, and send them.
Thank very much as well for your kind and supporting words. What
happened last Thursdat in Madrid was, not only sad... It was like a
nightmare come true. The feeling of impotence and pain was overwhelming.
It has provoqued a change in the goverment, but I am not sure this is
going to solve all our problems. The damage is done, and now we must
face the consecuences.
In this state of things, it is very hard to focus in a moutaineerig
magazine (it seems so shallow!). But life goes on, and people has also
the right to read about dreams and beautiful places and activities.
And so, let's go ow with your story. I'd like to write, in a couple of
sentences, who are you (Where do you live and your relationship with the
mountaineering world). Let me know as well where shall I send you an
issue, once printed. I must beg for yor patience, as your story will
appear in May, so it'll take it some time.
The same can be said as far as payment is concerned. The transference
shall be fulfilled on the First of June. Any way, to gain some time,
here you are our company's data, and how to write the invoice:
The invoice shall be signed and mailed to the attention of:
C/ Monte Esquinza, 28, 3║izda.
The invoice shall include:
Number of invoice (01, for you) and date (May 2004)
Your complete data (Name, adress, ID or passport number, phone n║.)
Campo base data (Beware, the adress where the company is registered is
not the same of that of our headquarters!)
Ediciones Campo Base S.L.
>c/ Abtao, 28, 4║ 19
Concept: Colaboration for the Third number of 'Campo Base' magazine.
(Colaboraciˇn para el tercer n˙mero de la revista Campo Base)
Then I'll need your COMPLETE bank account data. (Including the name of
the bank, adrees of the bank office, All the digits of the bank account,
IBAN code and SWIFT code).
Let me know if you have any doubt about it of in case you need any
futher information. Thanks again, and best regards,
