Happy New Year!

And we're wrapping things up on our last workday of 2010. Hooray!

A few notes and some resolutions for 2011:

- We're always trying to build better relationships with online book reviewers. Have a book blog? Interested in getting our catalogs, requesting review copies or being more involved with Overlook's books? Get in touch! kgales at overlookny dot com.
- It's our 40th anniversary, which we'd like to commemorate as deserves our over-the-hill status.
- We have some amazing books coming out in January, including the Sarajevo Haggadah and the wonderful memoir from the late Philip Carlo The Killer Within. Look for more information about these two outstanding titles as we kick off 2011 strong!
- We're printing more copies of Charles Portis' novels as quickly as we can, and the ebook of True Grit will be released January 14. Sorry about any backorders! Feel free to get in touch with us if you have more questions, or order through our website.
- We're going to build up better blog content and are excited to get more of our Overlook staffers involved more regularly.
- Giveaways! Our holiday giveaways went so well that we'd like to do them more regularly. PG Wodehouse, new releases, special editions and, Facebook and Twitter is where you'll be the first to know about the Winged Elephant's gift deliveries!
- Read, read, read. We already do a ton of reading in our offices and at home (unsurprising, right?). But we'd like to expand our horizons--more classics, more non-Overlook books, more literary experiments, and not writing off books just because they're in our mom's book club.

What are your literary resolutions for 2011? Any changes you'd like to see around here? Let us know! See you in 2011!
