What to Expect (Or Not)

It's time for our annual moment of confusion: we would like to stop working entirely until it's 2013, like a good portion of the publishing world, but the news rarely takes a full vacation (as evidenced by the last few day's dispatches). So you should expect occasional email service over the next week and a half, as the news--and our deal reports--dictate. Most likely we will only mail Publishers Lunch Deluxe to paid subscribers and corporate clients, while the shorter "free Lunch" rests.

PublishersMarketplace.com works 24/7 and our news clips (with RSS and Twitter feeds) will keep track of what's happening throughout the holiday period. All of our other services--deals, jobs, bestsellers, reviews, trackers, Nielsen BookScan subscriptions--are there to serve you all the time, as is our newest member of the family, the Publishers Lunch Bookateria.

The best way to stay in touch and sample all we have to offer is through a value-packed PublishersMarketplace.com membership--and in celebration of the holidays, we are offering a free trial period, starting today and ending on December 26. You or a friend or colleague can check out all of our resources at your leisure with no further obligation over that period, as long as you follow the posted terms.

Until our next dispatch, we wish all of our readers a happy and healthy respite.
