Imagination doesn't just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving [problems] or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. [Some people] would call this escapism, but they would be be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful branch of writing there is.

Book-Giveaway Winner and Suggestions

Thanks to everyone who joined my blog this month and/or participated in the Ides-of-February book-giveaway.

I hate this part of blog contests, because I'd love to give you all a book, just for following my blog, and I can only pick one. I'd love to give everyone in the world a book, kind of like that Coca-Cola song. Too bad.

The winner of the Ides-of-February book giveaway:

(drumroll please)


Congratulations, Pat.

The rest of you, don't give up hope if you didn't win. I'm doing another free-book contest in March, and since so many of you mentioned how much you like Neil Gaiman, I'll be sure to include him again. Also, please feel free to suggest any other books you'd like to see in future giveaways and I'll consider them.


  1. Congratulations to Pat! And I can't wait for March's giveaway. =]

  2. I'm assuming that's me.!!!!!! Thank-you thank-you. Please know that after I read, they will go on my school bookshelf where all the ninth graders have access to checking them out! you've just given your book to 100 people.

    I can't wait to put your book on the shelf! It will happen.
