2018-19 Winter Downtime Closing Announcement

2018-19 Winter Downtime Admin Office Hours:

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, and a Super Happy New Year's to you all!

Santa and Dasher Relaxing on the Beach

As many of our returning customers know, like Santa, early winter-to-Christmas Eve is our busiest time; some years, like this one, nobody gets a day off--not even Sundays--for many weeks, sometimes even months, heading into the last production day prior to Christmas day.  Each year, we close over the holidays, to recharge our batteries, just like Santa and Dasher here.  

We'll be closed, administratively, from 12/22 at noon, through the morning of January 3rd.  On the morning of the 3rd, Indy, my former right-hand-woman, will be covering for me from the 3rd until I return on the 7th.   Production will be full-tilt boogie while the office is closed, but in Admin, phones will not be answered and emails will only receive auto-replies until we're back on our regular schedule. Books that are in production will be shipped, fear not.  But we won't be undertaking new work submitted during the Downtime, thank you.  Please respect that we work very, very hard in the early winter, and we need this break, thank you.

Remember our Fallen

Memorial Day, originally called "Decoration Day" was created
to honor those who have been slain in defense of the US.

As many of our returning customers know, we close on the holidays to recharge our batteries, as we're normally open 6/days/week.  As a former servicemember, I feel strongly that Memorial Day should be observed--and remembered.  

We'll be closed, administratively, from 5:00 p.m, the night of May 24th 2019 through the morning of May 28th 2019.  Production will be full-tilt boogie while the office is closed, but in Admin, phones will not be answered and emails will only receive auto-replies until we're back on our regular schedule. Books that are in production will be shipped, fear not.  

Thanks, and have a happy and safe--and memorable--Memorial Day.

Change to Office Hours

Hey, folks!

As many of you know, we've been open 6/days/week since 2010, both in production and in Admin.  This has primarily been due to the reality that many authors work on their books on the weekends, which results in a pretty heavy email day on Mondays.  Years ago, the load on Mondays was so incredibly heavy that we decided that it was better to work on Saturdays to make Mondays survivable.  

But it's been 8+ years, and the truth is, after that many years of 6-day workweeks, I'm pretty burned out.  I just don't feel that I can personally work in Admin that many days/week from this point forward. Yes, we'll be open in production, of course, and if books have to be shipped (sent) to you on a weekend, that will be done--but the Admin offices are going to be closed on Saturday-Sunday from this point forward.  Naturally, exceptions will always exist, and if you need help on a weekend, we can arrange something, but I will no longer be in the office answering calls and emails on Saturdays.  I'm pretty sure that even Wonder Woman takes days off--and thus, so shall I.  

Thanks!
