Yes, it's true. We're going to be closed for 10 days, if you're reading this before 12/23/16, or we already are, if you're stumbling onto our front steps, after noon on December 23rd, 2016. Every year, for the last three months of the year, we endure horribly long working days, rush book after rush book, and just all-round craziness. So, come the Christmas holiday, we take a break, intended to be about 10 days. We call this the Midwinter Downtime. That means that the ADMIN offices are closed. No phones, no email, no nuttin'!
If you have a book in production with us, fear not. We have a couple of fellows who needed some extra shekels this year, who asked to pick up some hours during the Downtime. They'll be working on your books, while the rest of us are off recharging our batteries.
Please note: as whacky as this sounds, the phone company tells us that our voicemail is NOT working. If you don't reach someone, when you call, please, just send us an email instead. I promise that I will cheerfully call you when we get back. And we won't chase you around, either; you don't have to worry that if you change your mind, or go with someone else, that we'll be calling you and calling you. We're just not built that way. We don't harass people. It's not who we are. You can call or email and leave your contact information in perfect confidence that we'll treat you, as we wish to be treated. No excuses, no whining, no kidding.
So, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, happy holidays to All, and to All, a Good Night!
We'll see you next year!
