Holiday Closing Alert!  

LaborDay2Kwide721tall

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, we're going to be closed for all three days of the Labor Day weekend.  

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Sunday-Monday, August 31st through September 2nd, 2019. 

No telephone calls, no emails will be answered.  We almost never do this, but it's been an incredibly hectic year and the short of it is, the Crew (and I) need a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, September 3rd, ready to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.

Holiday Closing Alert! Presidents' Day, 2020   

Happy Presidents' Day 2020! We're closed today, but back tomorrow.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, in 11 years now, we're going to be closed for Presidents' Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Sunday and Monday, February 16th and 17th, 2020.

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, February 18th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  

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!

YES, we are here and working! 

Rappelling down the building, to serve you!Having Survived the great Customer Service System changeover of 2020, we're not letting some dumb VIRUS chase us off!

(Having said that, we ARE all working remotely!  We're not stupid!)

Yes, folks, we are still here and working for you, to get your paperbacks formatted and ebooks ready.  Our team is currently still at full strength, and at the moment, I don't expect that to change.  If anything does change, yes, I'll post here and let you know.

Send in your manuscripts!  As we've been since 2009, we're here.

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 29th-31st,  2021.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's just opening up!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed during The Plague.  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, June 1st, 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 Hakima in QA, 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!

T'was the Night Before Christmas... 

 (With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore, may he forgive my doggerel...)

...and all through the shop,
all we minions were working,
   until ready to drop.

The ebooks were flying,
the covers were spare,
The edits were crazy,
   with "one more thing I must share!"

We waited for Santa,
'Cuz we love old Saint Nick,
But Hitch made us work,
   Waving 'round an old stick!

So slave we all did,
And made all your books,
So that Hitch would say now,
   that we're off the hook.

Come today we're off,
to rest up our fingers,
Our hats we will doff,
   No books they do linger.

But we'll all be back,
Don't give it a thought,
for like all wage slaves,
   we're easily bought.

We'll be back on the fifth,
all eager and fresh,
All ready for you,
   after a well-deserved rest.

So Hitch wants to say,
very strongly and loud,
THANKS ALL YOU GUYS,
  you're the best type of crowd.

Indy and Len and Hitch and the gang,
will be back on the 5th,
to do books with a BANG!

In the meantime don't worry,
if you're in a hurry,
'cuz some poor guy got stuck
   sitting here like a duck.

Your emails we'll receive,
so no need to grieve.
We'll be a bit slow,
but we're raring to go.

Your books will be worked on,
your edits still made,
we're just resting a bit,
   before we all fade.

So please excuse the delays;
It won't be for days;
we'll jump on your queries,
   for your wondrous new series.

We waited for Santa,
'Cuz we love old St. Nick,
And sure 'nuff he came,
   It wasn't a trick.

And as he rode off,
into the night,
I could swear I heard Hitch yell,
   "That Edit's Not Right!"

~~~~~~~~~~

We'll be back on the morning of January 5th; we'll be here parttime between now and then, thanks.
