A New Year
For almost all of us, 2020 was a year full of challenges. Many of you have children who stayed home from school, and with them learned the vagaries of long-distance learning. Some of you are their teachers who had – still have – over 200 students you’re educating in a way no school district was prepared for. Some people stopped going to the office and worked from home – a blessing or a curse depending on their home situation. Some people lost their jobs. Some people started new businesses. Many people caught up on their TV viewing, some watched virtual concerts, and some became puzzle masters.
All our authors are well and thriving,
and that’s an excellent thing to report.
Over the course of this past year, turn-in dates became f-l-e-x-i-b-l-e as in waaay flexible, and release dates got moved, then moved again. Through it all, our developmental editors, copy editors, cover artists, formatters, IT staff, and a host of support people helped keep the wheels turning. We are grateful for and to every one of them. They’ve been indefatigable and fantastic.
We published forty books this year – one of which is an anthology with five stories. Overall, less than usual, but amazing given everything that has happened since March.
We are looking forward to 2021, and are thrilled we have so many books scheduled for release.
Thank you to our readers. You’ve kept hope alive in our authors, and put one of them on the USA Today Bestseller List.
Happy New Year.
All of You Deserve a Fabulous 2021.
