Ho ho ho! It's My Last Post of the Year...

After today, my only day in the (weirdly quiet) office this week, I'll be off work through January 5th, so this is my last post of the year. I considered giving a recent news roundup, but that's not very, um, festive. I toyed around with a "12 Days of Christmas" parody, but I'm too sleepy to get any further than "11 good rejections."

So I will simply end another year of blogging by thanking everyone who visits this space. Whether you follow, stop in daily, or zip by once in a while, I really appreciate it and I hope, at least occasionally, you find something useful or interesting. This has been my best year of blogging, with more readers, more followers and more posts than ever.

Thanks also to all who participated in my blog this year--all the Debuts Authors of the Month, Bloggers of the Week, and editors and agents who answered questions for me.

And, finally, thanks to everyone who uses CWIM. It's a joy to produce my book year after year and I intend to keep doing it as long as long as it's fun. (I'm now working on my 17th edition, so it's going pretty well so far.)

I wish you all good cheer (and rum cake)!

I LOVE the book, and intend to save my Christmas Gift Cards to purchase the new one (this summer?). I love that we get to hear about the publishing world, and about new authors/bloggers from your site.

Thanks for sharing with all of us- have a safe and happy holiday yourself!!!

Vodka Mom said...

P.S. How about a chapter devoted to Publishers that LOVE NEW and upcoming authors?? A top ten so to speak.... just a suggestion. :-)

Very nice picture of the Thomas Nast Santa drawn in the 1860s, the first popular drawing where Santa was round, red-cheeked, fur-dressed, and jolly. Before that Santa was imagined to be more thin and dour.

Thanks for the blog, I look forward to using it more in the new year, only just discovered it recently.
