Holy Schmoley!

This week marks 15 years at Tor!

My boss, the awesome Mr. Tom Doherty, just came down and reminded me with some nice words.

...I guess I better jump on some of these deadlines I've been dreading -- see if I can make it to 20.

Will there be cake?

ces said...

So, you were 5 years old when you started there, right?


Forget the cake! A bonus would be better - and a raise!

That's pretty awesome. 15 years at any place speaks volumes.
Congratulation---now, go celebrate!

Irene Gallo said...

Thanks, Guys!

Ces - No, but I acted like I was 5. Accordingly, I now act like a petulant 15 year old.

S.H. Segal said...

Very much congratulations.

Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo said...

Cool, Irene! I remember when we first met you back then--I think you were wearing an Ernie t-shirt? You sure have made an amazing mark on the entire science fiction/fantasy industry during these past 15 years!
Looking forward to the next 15.

Julie and Boris

I cannot even remember where I was or what I was doing 15 years ago. If I could or had the chance, I'd buy you a round or two for celebration.

I hope there will be another 15 for you as well.

Wow- that's fantastic Irene. You certainly have reinvented the role of art director in the art community and everything you've given should be rewarded with a frickin year's supply of cake! Here's to another 15 years! I know this young illustrator can't wait to be working with you some day during them.

Annalisa said...

Congratulations again! May I humbly suggest double dessert to commemorate this special milestone?

Echoing Kristina's thoughts here, too!

Lana Gramlich said...

Congratulations. :)

Of cause, when you are first to play, you can maplestory mesos. If you have enoughmaple story mesos, you will be able to different games.

Once I played Asda Story, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have [url=]Asda Story gold[/url]. He gave me some [url=]Asda Story money[/url], he said that I could [url=]buy Asda Story Gold[/url], but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some [url=]cheap Asda Story gold[/url].
