Our biggest news is that our site is in the middle of huge revamp! Yes, another one! It was decided to remove the flash intro (although it looked great, it meant the site took too long to upload). So now we have a fantastic new design that uploads quickerr and looks wonderful! Plus the site revamp has resulted in making the site much more user-frendly. Now it is much simpler to find different sections on GMP, definitely improving the experience of exploring Great Mystery Publishing. We have also totally redesigned THE GALLERY. We are still fine-tuning this new version of our gallery, but except for the Exhibitors Profiles, everything is up and running. For those who don't know, THE GALLERY, provided by Great Mystery Publishing, exhibits inspired original works by talented amateur and professional artists and photographers, at absolutely no cost! For further information on THE GALLERY, check it out here, and submission details for THE GALLERY can be found here.
At present, when you click on the various GMP links, you may find yourself in the older sections of the GMP site. So if you are wondering why the site design is so radically different when you nagivate the site, do not worry that you have got lost on the web. Eventually all information from the older sections will be moved across, but until we find the time to complete this mammoth task (everything is done on a volunteer-basis), it will be a very gradual process. Despite the changeover, Great Mystery Publishing is already full of fascinating information, wonderful clips and activities which you can locate simply by clicking on the links in the GMP Directory!
If you have any helpful comments or suggestions to improve the GMP site, just drop us a line via the GMP Contact Form or Guest Book.
WORDS OF WISDOM
After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand, and chaining a soul, And company doesn't mean security... And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts, And presents aren't promises, And you begin to accept your defects with your head held up and your eyes open, With the Grace of a woman - not the grief of a child, And you learn to build all your roads on today, Because tomorrows ground is too uncertain for plans, And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. And after a while you learn that even sunshine burns ...if you get too much!
So you plant your own garden And decorate your own soul, Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers And you learn that you really can endure, And you really are strong, And that you really do have worth, And you learn, and you learn...
Grow and blossom
