Fantasy Book Critic Update

Happy Holidays!!!
First off, to all our readers I just wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!!! I know it’s a bit premature, but starting today, my wife and I are taking TWO WHOLE WEEKS off from work, and as such, I’m taking a break from Fantasy Book Critic from December 15th through January 2nd as we enjoy some long-awaited family time :) Additionally, the other half of Fantasy Book Critic, David Craddock, will also be on vacation during those dates :)

That said, because of some careful planning, I have several posts all ready to go and will continue updating Fantasy Book Critic on a regular basis. Unfortunately, I won’t be replying to any emails or comments—with exceptions—until after the start of the New Year, but feel free to keep firing away!

Regarding the updates, besides the regular book reviews and whatnot, Fantasy Book Critic will also be participating in some End-of-2007 festivities. One will be a Review that I was asked to participate in for the excellent
SFF World along with some fellow bloggers :) That was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see how it turns out! I think it should be posted anytime now. Around the last week of December, I’ll be posting my own little review. Actually, it’s more of a ‘Favorites’ list of my Favorite Books of 2007 broken down into subcategories like ‘Favorite Fantasy’, ‘Favorite Science Fiction’, ‘Favorite Debuts’, ‘Favorite Cover Art’, etc. Unfortunately, because of time constraints I wasn’t able to get as elaborate with it as I would have liked, so it’s more a less just a list with zero commentary. There will also be a Best of 2007 Essay coming out that last week, and lastly, I’m working on something a little special for you readers ;) It’s kind of an ambitious project and I have a lot of work left to do, but I think it’ll be worth it in the end. Because of the vacation and such though, you probably won’t be seeing the article until the beginning of January sometime… Just keep your eyes peeled :)

And I think that’s about it. 2007 has been a great year :) I accomplished a lot more with Fantasy Book Critic than I ever expected; readers actually seem to visit the blog on a regular basis—thank you very much!!!—I’ve met a lot of cool people through the website...bloggers, fans and authors alike, and best of all, I got to read many, many enjoyable books and for that alone 2007 was a success! So, once again, Happy Holidays to everyone, and I can’t wait to see what 2008 has in store for us :D
