A Gentle Tease

Hi Attention readers,

Our work for the month is just about finished. The magazine is now fully in-world and it's going to be our largest yet. When you get your hands on a copy, make yourself a sandwich. You'll need it!

We've held off on teasing the cover until the last minute, because we have some pretty exciting names listed on it. Call me superstitious, but I didn't want to jink it! We're very, very proud of this issue and are really grateful for everyone who agreed to be in it. 

Without further ado, here is the cover. Our theme this month is "Boys of Summer." Our cover is featuring our Beauty of the Month, Larry Vinaver. 

























Thank you for reading!

We are very busy at Attention right now. And by "we" I mean "me." All of the articles have been turned in and it's now up to me to get the magazine ready for print. 

What's left? Well, we have to have some advertising to pay for the upload costs. At $10L a page, it doesn't take long to add up. Last month we had 286 pages. That means $2,860L were our base costs. While I never want to overdo the ads, it's nice not to have to pay out of pocket. And if we can help some of the people we cover, so much the better!


I also have to place the magazine in order. Sometimes, the people we cover negotiate a certain position. Sometimes, we have an order in mind. Last month, our Bikini spectacular led the field. Jon, Rache and I try to do this together, so that the finished product correlates with our individual visions and becomes a cohesive whole. 


Once the magazine is in order and numbered, then it's time to upload and put it into the magazine. We use IntelliBook's Magazine Factory. It's just the best and allows us to provide our readers with up to the minute content, links to the Marketplace, LMs in-world. It's an amazing product and was donated to us last month by an anonymous donor. 


Then we have that wonderful moment when the magazine is finished and in our inventories. After that, it is sheer torture not to show you all what we have worked on for the last month. 


Our release date this month will be July 1, 2016. We will celebrate at a party, held at Club Yana's at 1PM SLT. We hope to see you there!


Until then, I have a pic for you. It's a hint of sorts to one of the features we are doing in this month's issue. We'll tease the cover later this week.





Take care!

Dear Readers,

Attention's June edition, our second, has been released. You can find it here.


In addition to featuring our gorgeous Brea Brianna, we have articles on the following:

  • Nerenzo furniture. 
  • The Mesh Shop
  • AXL Pro
  • Harry's Outdoor & Living
  • Whim's "Allorando's Last Dance," her take on the mermaid legend.
  • Interviews of Graham Collinson and Alexandria Topaz
  • A pictorial by Graham Collinson.
  • Sim features by Isle Biedermann & Athena. 
  • Busty Bee's adorable comic birthday. 
The star of the show, however, is the amazing Swimsuit fashion spread by our Partee Mytili. She spent an amazing amount of time and energy coordinating 26 models and some of the best swimsuits on the grid. We built our entire issue around her work and she does not disappoint. 

The coordination of all of this falls to me and sometimes things happen that I cannot begin to explain. My dear friend, Envy Watts Trevellion, graciously agreed to pose for us. During the upload process, her picture wasn't included. As the publisher of Attention, I take full responsibility for the omission. Obviously, we would have loved to include it. 


Best wishes, 

Athena

I love the nightlife ... I love to boogie!
