It’s been a long, weird year full of hardships and scandals, and 2018 promises to be even weirder. But hopefully, for one day, we can take a break from the nonsense to relax and enjoy the Yuletide season. If I have any wish for this Christmas, it’s that common sense and cooler heads will prevail. Perhaps that’s a vain hope, but if we vow to be strong and endure, I believe we can make this a better world. How’s that for a mushy holiday sentiment?
Anyway, I also want to thank everyone who’s frequented our new blog Steampunk Desperado and everyone who’s read and reviewed our two Ione D books. This, of course, is a passive-aggressive request for anybody who hasn’t reviewed it to get over there and leave us one – even if it’s just one sentence.
As long as we’re at it, I want to show off my favorite gift so far. It’s certainly not the most expensive, but it’s one of a kind. From my lovely wife Arlys, this cup features our dog Hati and Arlys herself in steampunk regalia. The legend under the “HO HO HO” says “NOT JUDGING” despite the expressions on both of their faces. What a wonderful gift!
Merry Christmas to all, even the SPLC.
