Happy holidays to all of you. It is Christmas Eve and all that is stirring are a bunch of wacky artists, writers and game designers here at Palladium Books.
We held the Palladium office party last Friday. It was an intimate gathering of the Palladium crew held at Kathy’s house. There was plenty of scrumptious food and drinks, gift-giving, and lots and lots of laughter. It was a nice break from the daily grind. I work with a great bunch of people, but you know that already.
On Sunday, everyone came in to do some work so that we can take another long weekend for Christmas. Wayne was in to work on The Rifter and some business matters, Jeff went through his endless sea of email and rearranged part of the warehouse, Matt worked on writing and editing, and Alex and Julius on prepping and packing Christmas Surprise Packages. I came in to wrap more gifts, work on Surprise Packages and take care of some business before heading out to a neighbor’s Christmas party later that evening. That was a nice affair too. I think everyone is feeling the warmth and camaraderie of the holidays.
Yesterday, I selected more goodies and signed more books for Christmas Surprise packages, paid some bills, and had a meeting with our printing rep. Wayne has been working on Rifter® #69 and the rest of the crew have been busy little elves signing books and working on various projects.
