February is here. Alas and woe.
Have I mentioned that I happen to hate February? That I think it should be banned from the year, and we should switch to an 11-month calendar? Valentine's Day should be banned, too, with all its horrible pink underwear and antacid-flavored candies.
I hate pink. I hate air-inversions and smog. I hate heart-shaped jewelry. I want to crawl into bed with a cup of bitter, slave-free hot cocoa and not come out until March.
Ok. I'm done now. I'd better give away a free book or something, as an apology for blackening your month with my hatred.
It's even a romantic book. By my friend, Bree Despain--the sequel to her YA novel The Dark Divine. It's called The Lost Saint and it came out just after Christmas.
If you like vampires and werewolves and things Twilightish, this is your kind of story. *Disclaimer: I still haven't actually read it because my girls are book-hogs and won't share. But they tell me it's "very intense."
To be entered in the book drawing, you must
1. Follow my blog by clicking on the "Follow" link in the sidebar to the right. If you already follow, you're good to go and I love you already.
2. Leave a comment and tell me you want to be entered.
3. Do it by Saturday, February 5th.
That's all. I tried to make it easy, because it's February and I don't want to tax anyone's mental skills in the month of Brain Cloud.
There's a good chance I'll be giving away a second book this month, just because I like books and I hate Februrary, and giving away books makes me feel better, so check back soon for details.
Good luck surviving until March. Me, I'll be in bed reading and writing lots of depression poetry on my computer.
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.
