Thanks for all the fish

The sun has set and the last grains of time are rolling through the hour glass. In the Forest, we’re discussing the joys of 2007 and looking eagerly towards 2008. (Plus, there is champagne chilling and I adore champagne.)

Since Christmas I’ve been locked in seclusion in a small hotel room working on my new YA. Now I am home. Is there any word better than that? HOME! I think not.

I’ll post tomorrow with pictures of the Creature With Fangs in full party mode, and a couple of resolutions and hopes and dreams. But before the year is out, I wanted to say thanks to all of you – my family, my friends, people who read my books because they have to – or even want to, and the various strangers who stumble across this blog when they are looking for the other Laurie Anderson.

This online community means more to me than I can properly express in words. So please let me give you a big hug and pour you a cup of cheer and say “thank you, thank you, thank you.”

(BTW – here is your last literary reference from me for the year. The subject line of this post? From the much-missed Douglas Adams.)
