Welcome to the monthly digest of all the great “goings-on” of 12 x 12 members. Congratulations to everyone for their achievements. This month we’re featuring books by 12 x 12 members that were previously released but were just added to the Good News form in the last six weeks. All other good news was submitted before December 5th. Be sure to have your good news submitted by the 1st of the month for inclusion in that month’s Good News Post. A link to the Good News form can be found under Important Announcements in the 12 x 12 forum or in the Facebook group.
On to the celebration! Be sure to click on the links to tweet and share the good news around the web!
