A Very Merry Holiday Break & Happy New Year

Filed under: The Writing Life — jenny @ 9:36 am

To all Suspense Your Disbelief readers,  passers-by, and stragglers!

To the guests who have appeared or written Moments, a giant thank you for helping to make this blog a community of writers, readers, and friends.

In 2011 we will continue the discussion about the future of publishing, learn about great new books, probe into how we all do this thing called writing…and maybe even hear of this blog’s creator breaking in with a book of her own.

I am beyond excited for some of the guests we will have.

But until then, let me offer a small tiding of the season. Whatever your holiday, be it Christmas or Kwanzaa or Solstice or Hanukkah, I think you will appreciate this image.

Some of you may get e readers this year under the tree and I hope you enjoy them and possibly even download a book by an author you discovered here on Suspense Your Disbelief.

But look at the tree, courtesy of Magers & Quinn Booksellers, as seen on today’s issue of Shelf Awareness!

  4. If I build a tree like that, will my dog not think of it as a tree?

  5. Wonderful tree. Perfect for a library, and a happy holiday to you!

  6. I could totally do that tree with my pile that’s waiting to be shelved. Someone had a great idea! Have a good holiday, Jenny!

  7. Jenny, you’ve done the book world a lot of good and I hope the book world will return then favor with a contract in 2011. Merry Christmas ;)

  8. Thank you and tidings and blessings to everyone who stopped by with such good will. Kaye, who’s on her writing way; Lil, who reached out through the vastness of cyber space a few weeks ago and allowed me to make a new friend; Leila, whose own role in the book world deserves a space in my acknowledgments if I ever *do* get a contract; Carolyn, who never fails to make me laugh; Alice, who I’m looking forward to getting to know in the new year; Savvy, who created my home away from home; Judy, whose frequent conversation and presence is another good reason to stay on the east coast. Happy new year to all and Merry reading!

  11. Great image, Jenny. When I read your blurb on DorothyL I was guessing it would be your children curled up reading under a tree. Every holiday blessing to you and your family, Jenny. Thank you for being such a fabulous promoter of our crazy industry!

  12. Jenny — Love that tree!!! Hope your holidays are the best! — Brenda

  13. Oh Donna, that would’ve been a cute one, too. Maybe we’ll do something on the Take Your Child site with kids reading in special places. The happiest of holidays to your & yours this season. I’m so glad we’ve become friends-across-cyber-space. One day it will be in person!

    And thank you, Brenda! The same to you, and look forward to getting to know you better in the new year.
