Editor’sNote: Thank You … and Big News
I don't know about you, but I can't believe the end of another year is upon us. What a year it's been—I think it's safe to say—for all of us in publishing.
To go out with a bang, we traditionally end the year with our annual Business Tips issue, featuring x number of tips on a variety of topics (this year, 65+ tips!). Our columnists, not typically list-makers by nature, graciously cooperate and submit their columns in tips format to go with our theme. The idea is to pack as much information as we can into these pages to help you prepare for the new year. I hope you feel we have been successful.
It seems an appropriate time to thank our columnists and our guest columnists for their contributions to this magazine, as well as our editorial advisory board for their constant support and insights, sometimes responding to my requests with just hours' notice, and always being positive and helping to steer this magazine's direction over the years.
However, I'd also like to thank you, our reader, our pièce de résistance. First of all, for reading. Second, for providing feedback; I appreciate the e-mails and phone calls I get in response to our content. Hundreds of you provide feedback on our annual editorial survey, and I can't tell you how valuable that is to ensuring that Book Business continues to serve you with information that will help you in your publishing careers—whether through this print publication, our many webinars, our Publishing Business Virtual Conference and Expo (which we just held live on Oct. 27, but you can still register to view the archived event and all the free editorial sessions at virtual.publishingbusiness.com), and last, but certainly not least, our live Publishing Business Conference & Expo (which is coming up March 19-21 in NYC, so save the date … and make sure you register in time to get your free thank-you gift—an Amazon Kindle Fire!).
