My first book is forthcoming from a major publishing house. I emailed my agent to ask if it would be appropriate for me to send holiday gifts to my editor, her asst., and the marketing and publicity folks. She said yes. Would it be okay if I sent the same gift to each, or should I single out my editor for something more special?
oh boy. Giftage. Miss Snark loves gifts of course, but giftage is a mine laden field of wrapping paper, bows and shattered expectations.
Don't send your editor and her assistant the same thing.
If at all possible, include a hand written card extolling their wonderfullness. That, more than any gift, means the most. You can never hear "you rock my world Miss Snark" too many times, when you know the emotion is genuine.
