--I wish all of you the comfort of good stories, both in books and in your lives. Hugs. Stay warm everyone, Sharon
--I wish everyone a wonderful year of great reading and getting totally lost in the stories. So grab a good book, a cup of something warm and comforting to sip on, a blankie, and snuggle into your best chair. Lonnie/planning on doing same
--May you find piles of entertaining books during 2009 and time to enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by Poe's Deadly Daughters this past year. Darlene
--I wish all you mystery readers (and that includes me) a mile-high To Be Read pile, enough free time to read 'em all, and no disappointments. I wish the writers among us the perfect agent, advantageous contracts, and multitudes of readers--but above all, moments when that mysterious creative force we call inspiration is flowing straight through you and out onto the page or screen. Liz
--I wish all of you the kind of rewarding friendships I've been fortunate enough to find in the mystery community among both writers and readers. We love mayhem on the page, but with each other mystery folk are kind, forgiving and generous -- and just plain fun to be around! Sandy
--I shall share the words of one of my favorite wags, Mark Twain: "Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual."
But if that one is a bit too sassy, here is a beautiful thought from T.S. Eliot:
"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning." (from Little Gidding).
May we all find our voices in the New Year, and we hope you'll share your voices here.
Best wishes of the season, Julia
