Some self congratulation and Season's Greetings

Just a quick note to apologise for it being a bit quiet.  We haven't forgotten about you or the lovely bookie reviews.  No, instead we've been very busy.  

Mark, Essjay and I have had some epic writing sessions to get our first drafts done on our various projects.  Essjay finished hers earlier this week (huzzah!) and Mark and I finished ours last night.

I am really proud to be part of this team - we did really well.  Although none of us have agents or publishers, we set ourselves deadlines and worked ourselves into the ground to stick to the deadline and we made it.  So, huge congrats to Mark and Sarah - you guys rock.

Our respective rewards: massive Yule feasts with friends and family and a few days off to enjoy our presents and relaxing.  And luxuriating in the time to just read without feeling guilty about not writing! 

Next week we'll be back to normal with reviews, book tour news, guest blogs and of course, our annual list of MFB Favourites of 2010. 

In the meantime:

A big merry old happy Yule to all of you guys - thanks for your unwavering support and enthusiasm for all our craziness on MFB in 2010.  

I saw this via twitter yesterday and thought I'd should really share it - it is both hilariously funny but also a bit sad.  

 Remember folks: support your indie bookstores and libraries and most importantly remember that books aren't just for Christmas.
