From Geraldine's Desk: "I am a British writer, born in London, England, and brought up on a south London Council estate, the youngest of four children of Irish Catholic working class parents. Alas, one of life's late developers, and, at that time, more interested in playing marbles than studying for, and taking exams, I failed the 11+ examination, which was the exam that decided the standard of the rest of your education (and usually the standard of the rest of your Iife...). Like my older siblings, I left school in my mid-teens and started work - mostly a series of tedious dead-end jobs. Though, funnily enough, the first job I had, when I left school at sixteen, was as an assistant in a public library, with the perks (at that time, I don't know if such perks still exist) of being able to borrow as many books as I liked and never having to pay any fines. Ye Gods! Couldn't I do with such perks now! My fines from the library are awe-inspiring! You know what it's like - you take books out for research, keep them for months and always forget to renew them. Even though, nowadays, I do some of my research on the internet, nothing really replaces the book held in the hand, with all the bibliographic information at the rear.

Holiday Closing Alert! Memorial Day, 2020

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
