This is an official announcement that the Jenny Rappaport branch of the L. Perkins Agency will be closed from December 18th-December 25th. I will then be available again from December 26th-December 29th, and then once again, closed again from December 30th-January 1st. Business will resume as normal on January 2nd.
Although my branch of the office will be closed, please do not assume that I am off sunning myself in Cabo San Lucas. Instead, I will be devoting the next two weeks or so to reading manuscripts and query letters. Please don't be surprised, if I post things on the blog, or I reply to electronic queries. I will have a vacation message posted on my Yahoo business e-mail account (the one listed in the submission guidelines). If anything urgent comes up, Lori will be covering for me, and similarly, I will be covering for her during the week of Christmas and New Years. It helps that one of us is Jewish and the other isn't. =)
For those of you that are Jewish, have a Happy Hanukkah tonight! I, for one, intend to initiate Zoe into the mysteries of lighting the menorah. As Chris said when I told him my plan: "Kittens and fire, what a combination!" =)
