I just received this cute little postcard from my publisher, G. P. Putnam’s Sons a couple of weeks ago. Because it has a February postmark, I know that it wasn’t lost in the mail somewhere. Publishing houses are busy places, and like me, they probably stretch their holiday wishes through more than one season.
Besides, the message on the back, “Wishing you a season full of high notes!” sounds as good to me now as it would have in December. My editor even added a little “Happy 2015!” to the back.
So maybe those of us who need more time to push all our greetings out the door should acknowledge that. Let’s eschew pine trees and jolly elves on our cards, and then any time of year can become “a season full of high notes.”
