Happy Anniversary, Me!

Little known fact: this week marked the one year anniversary of Glass Cases publications.Such an innocent time, back then. Hard to believe we once lived in a Snooki-free world.

First and foremost, THANK YOU for keeping this blog alive and for supporting me and for being all around amazing!!!

As you might be able to piece together, this blog started when I was a wee assistant, not really sure if I’d make it in this crazy, mixed up world of publishing (OK that’s only half true). But, as my position with Curtis Brown changed, the blog did become a little more industry-related, but only in terms of writerly education; I still leave the business side of things to be explained by those who are far superior at it than I.

Anyway, this post today is just my chance to look back at the blog that I still can’t believe people read, and to express my thanks to all of you, particularly those who have contributed stories.

Thanks again for everything, readers! Have a great weekend.

Glass Cases

One of the great writers of his – of any – time has died today…

J.D. Salinger was one of my favorites, as evidenced by the name of this blog and my never-ending affection for Holden Caulfield. I am truly saddened by his death, but am somewhat comforted to know that the world’s most famous recluse is finally at peace.

I hope those phonies who battle for his estate treat his works with the respect they so deserve.

We will miss you, J.D.
