So the days are practically permanently dark, the tree is up and the turkey is in the freezer. That can only mean one thing…….

It’s nearly Santa time!

Here at Confessions of a Reviewer, I have taken the decision to have a break over the Christmas period, to spend some quality time with the family and not have to worry about posting anything. They would probably rather I kept going but, hey ho, you can’t have everything.

I would just like to say thank you. Thank you to all the wonderful authors willing to send me their books to review. Thank you to all the wonderful authors sending me lovely books in the post. Thank you to all the wonderful authors taking time out from their busy schedules to answer silly interview questions. Thank you to all the wonderful authors taking part in guest posts and providing me with some fantastic content.

Thank you to all the wonderful authors for doing what you do best, and giving people like me the opportunity to sit back, chill and read all of the wonderful words you put down on paper.

I have to also thank you, the person reading this. If it were not for you coming back time and time again to read the posts on the blog, very simply, there would be no blog.

I have been blown away by the support I have received, and the number of hits the blog has got so far. I can only hope that you will continue to come back and visit when I return in the New Year.

I never thought in a million years things would have worked out the way they have. I have never been so busy in my life and it is fantastic to feel that it is worthwhile. My postman is never away from the door delivering beautifully signed books. This makes me extremely happy, although my wife, Jo, is forever disappointed. She is always expecting a little Yankee Candle or something in the box as well! Tried to convince her this isn't how it works but maybe some day she might get one in the post from one of you nice people!

(She made me say this. I wasn't getting Xmas dinner if I didn't)

From the bottom of my heart, Confessions of a Reviewer wishes each and every one of you, a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Wishing you a New Year filled with new Hope, new Joy and new Beginnings!

Thanks for everything!
