I want to start off by apologizing to everyone who's been cut out of posting comments by my activation of the "Google +" comments. I didn't read carefully enough to realize that would require everyone who posted to have a G+ account. I still can't believe they did that--it's so contrary to what a blogger wants, which is maximum engagement, that I didn't even believe it when someone first told me they'd been unable to comment. Someone please test while NOT logged into G+ and let me know if it works now!
Secondly, I have no idea how much I'll be posting through the holiday season. I am certainly finishing up the "200 word challenge," and have regularly scheduled posts through the 23rd--which just happens to also be the last day to enter the #MGBookElves giveaway. There will almost certainly be no post on Dec. 25--I'm sure no one is going to want to take time to read one that day!
Finally, since the end of one year and beginning of another is a time for assessing, let me know what you'd like to see more (or less!) of on this blog. Want more author interviews? More reviews (probably not happening--reading and reviewing the books as I do takes some serious time)? More pearls of wisdom on the writing process (always bearing in mind that I am totally talking through my hat). Speak, O Reader(s) and let me know!
Meanwhile, don't forget:
And a gratuitous photo of a cute small furry animal, because I can:
Oh--and I may have found a photo of Gorg the Troll in my archives:
