Thank you for your support -- for buying the books, for reviewing, and even simply for telling your friends you enjoyed a story by Josh Lanyon. It's all very much appreciated.
ALSO a very big thank you to everyone who took part in this year's Advent Calendar. Not just those of you who contributed stories and art (although I'm so grateful and so appreciative of your generosity -- you guys are so talented. It's almost unnerving!) but also to those of you who simply participated by leaving comments or joining in the games.
The calendar is a way of saying Thank You to my readers, so there's really no need to participate -- most of the posts average between 800 - 1000 views, so I know people are seeing and enjoying the calendar -- but when so many other people contribute, I want them to know their work is being enjoyed and appreciated too, so it means a lot when someone takes the time to comment. :-) Thank you ALL very much.
I wish every single person who reads this message Health and Happiness in 2018.
From "The Passing of the Year" by Robert W. Service
My pipe is out, my glass is dry;
My fire is almost ashes too;
But once again, before you go,
And I prepare to meet the New:
Old Year! a parting word that’s true,
For we’ve been comrades, you and I --
I thank God for each day of you;
There! bless you now! Old Year, good-bye!
