Here's hoping you and the missus are doing well. It's that time of year again, so here's my Christmas wish list.
I want to have a whopping best seller. It doesn't have to make me millions in royalties. A few hundred thousands would be sufficient.
I also want one of my books optioned to become a movie. Any one of them would make a decent flick. I can give you a few suggestions if you'd like.
And I want a major publisher to contact me and ask me to submit to them. They can tempt me with a huge advance, and any genre is okay. It would also be nice if they'd arrange for me to attend several book signings across the U.S. and overseas.
Finally, I'd like a constant stream of excellent, thought-provoking, and ingenious ideas for new books to write in the coming year, with no writer's blocks, delays, or frustrations. Be sure to include plenty of coffee.
However, if by some chance you're not able to bring any of that to me this year, then I would be happy with the following - readers who enjoy my works, good health to where I can continue to write, and the patience and ability to tell a good story. Again, don't forget the coffee.
That's it! Have a safe trip, and here's wishing you and your elves a very Merry Christmas!
P.S. Here's a picture of my newest ornament. It's a typewriter with the words "Once upon a time" Just perfect for an author, don't you think?
