Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope by the time you read this you'll be exactly where you need to be. This will be my last post for the year. I won't be back until January 7th, but I'll be posting on Back to Basics so I hope you'll stop by and visit in between the relatives and eggnog.

Congratulations to the winners! I hope you enjoy your goodies. And thanks to my fabulous guest bloggers. You guys have the best Christmas ideas!
But what about the future, Maria?
Glad you asked. I may be quiet, but I haven't been still. This is what my crystal ball tells me.
• I predict there will be even more indie-published authors in 2013.
• We'll continue to see sub-par books, but also great books.
• Indie book covers will begin to surpass the quality produced by traditional publishers. (Big sigh of relief from me. It makes me hurt for those authors when they get ugly covers.)
That's it for me. Visit me on Facebook or Back to Basics. Email me if you need a cover designed. And wait for me to come back on January 7th. I have a big surprise planned especially for my writer friends. My gift to you for the new year.
Have a wonderful holiday, everyone. It's been a pleasure talking with you throughout the year. I'll be visiting your blogs while I'm on hiatus. Love you guys.
