Holiday Greetings!

December 27, 2010 By: larramiefg Category: Reader's Holiday Greetings


[During this Season of giving and sharing, The Divining Wand’s readers would like to thank their authors/friends for this past year and wish them Holiday Greetings. The next few weeks will feature universal as well as personal nods to writers who share with us throughout the year. Happy Holidays!]

To all of the authors who take the time to contribute to The Divining Wand:

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays! Thank-you for providing me with hours of entertainment throughout 2010. I wear many hats in my everyday life: mom of three boys, wife, daughter, sister, employee, friend, chef, and chauffer, and reading provides me with an escape, a few moments to myself, and a unique way to experience new things. When I’ve had a long and tiring day I long to escape under the covers with a book. And when I’m there? The tension of the day evaporates.

I’ve read on your blogs that writing can be a frustrating and often solitary pursuit, that some days the bad outweighs the good. I’ve heard that with every rejection or bad review the desire to pour your heart onto a page for everyone to read can seem insane. Thank-you for sticking with it- without you I wouldn’t have the magic of words at my fingertips.

To Karen McQuestion, the author of A Scattered Life:

I’ve spent some time reading up on your story and it is such an inspiration to anyone who has ever found their work to be ignored by the “traditional” publishing houses. I haven’t had the opportunity to read your book yet, but one of the things that I love about the Christmas season is that I am able to spend more time than usual reading. There’s just something wonderful about being able to curl up with a good book next to a twinkling Christmas tree! I’m looking forward to it and “A Scattered Life” will be among my holiday reads. I’m looking forward to reading “Easily Amused” as well. Happy Holidays to you, your husband, and your three almost-grown children!

To Tanya Egan Gibson, author of How to Buy a Love of Reading:

Dear Tanya,

This holiday season, I think I shall buy you a love of reading… Just kidding! But I would like to thank you for writing such an original story. I really admire that you didn’t pull any punches (like with Hunter’s addiction issues).

Here’s a little virtual gift. Cheesy, I know.

Warm holiday wishes to you and yours!
