And now, a holiday message from Schaffner Press‘s man-in-charge, Tim Schaffner, a man I affectionately refer to as ‘Bwanah’:
“Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes from Schaffner Press!
As I move into my 15th year of independent publishing, I wanted to say thanks to all of our authors, past, present, and future, who have made this press what it is today and will continue to be for many years to come!
And thanks for all the support from agents, IPG, designers, publicists, review editors, and the publishing community in these years of growth!
Happy Holidays and Happy 2015!
For myself, I’d like to add that it has been a most extraordinary year! Like all writers, I dreamed of making the NY Times Bestseller List but never imagined it would come true! Deep gratitude to my agent Mike Hamilburg, designer Jake Kiehle, IPG’s Lauren Klouda (yes, as far as I’m concerned, she was indeed born in a manger!), tech whiz Mike Phillips, publicist Tyson Cornell, and most of all, Tim Schaffner. More than the indie who said ‘yes,’ he constantly proves himself to be the only publisher in America with any vision.
And to one and all, HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!
