Happy Holidays!

Writer Beware is taking time off for the holidays. Unless there's some especially major publishing news, look for us to be back after January 1.

I'll still be answering emails. To contact me: beware [at]

We wish all our readers peace, happiness, and excellent writing. Thanks so much for being here, for reading and commenting and sharing your experiences and spreading the word. See you in 2013!

Closing of Vantage Press is big news.

Yes, it is. And I will blog about it. I just don't have the time free right now--I'm away from home and just trying to get through the holidays with my sanity intact and everyone left alive.

Happy holidays, and wishing you a wonderful New Year!

Thank-you for all your excellent hard work! Enjoy your break. You've certainly earned it!

While you're immersed in the holidays, please know there are many of us who appreciate the gift you and the other Writer Beware contributors have given us - the power of knowledge. Now forget about us, go forth and make merry.
