Latest Update on our First Anthology (Feb 28, 2014): Our website and computer network got hacked recently and attacked by malicious viruses. They had to be quarantined and our files had to go through a tedious cleaning up. We finally recovered our website, and now our computing systems and files are also undergoing the same tedious clean up attention. Unfortunately, our book project also got affected but we are doing our best to get it back on track. We have also taken both our Facebook Pages offline to clean them up as they were directly connected to our computing systems. Thank you for your understanding.
