Description

He’s Creative Director and Sr. VP of the biggest privately owned advertising agency in The Business. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Not if you’re the ambivalent Adam Leff and
the snake who owns the agency is Louis Kingman II. Plus,Adam “finds himself”(One does not find oneself, Adam; one makes choices, his saintly therapist, Doctor Gruber, reminds him again and again) becoming resident playmate for Eleanor Kingman, Lou’s beautiful, willful young British wife; while at the same time fending off agency account management and their predictions of disaster if Adam insists upon going ahead with the TV campaign he’s created for the Pizza Perfect competitive presentation; plus, in the same few days, co-hosting Christmas dinner at the lavishly swagged, befirred and festooned Meerbach’s Rathskeller for a major client; in addition to his dutiful participation in the Agency’s extravagant Christmas party; and then Adam’s horror when he suddenly realizes that Lou has been recording his assignations with Eleanor and is determined to renege on his promise to pay her $5 million for marrying him, culminating in Adam’s desperate race to prevent Eleanor’s murder at Lou’s triplex apartment overlooking all of New York.

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.
