Valentines Day Blog Hop Events Page
Of course I'm doing my own hop here - so if you leave your name and email address (and maybe a little message would be nice too) I'll be doing a draw for one copy of Theme of Hearts and one copy of Love & Patience, both of which are my Valentines shorts. If you have a preference, you can leave that in your comment too. :)
As for Valentines Day itself, I'm not much of a romantic person in real life but that is one of my favourite aspects of writing and usually reading, as well. It's no secret that I'm an emotional person so that aspect of romance and love is something that makes my heart ache and my eyes tear up - in a good way. I think the best Valentines' Days I had were best for me when my kids were small, when I spoiled them rotten even more than I do now - cards, chocolate and always some kind of gift like a game or My Little Pony or Transformer. That's the kind of love that is so important in my life - my kids' love.
Though I'm not a romantic person in my real life, I'm definitely a romantic at heart, and I can totally get hooked on love songs and ballads. Music in itself is an emotional thing and when the music and the words inspire me to write, that's all the better. This is a great love song by Staind, one of my faves, complete with lyrics. Enjoy.
My birthday is this weekend (groans) so I'm assuming we'll go out for dinner - sushi, of course - but other than that I expect it to be uneventful. Baby boy had a gig last night so that was a lot of fun, though I'm getting way too old for these shows that don't start until after 10pm - yawns. I'l stop rambling now - you and your peeps have a great weekend and remember to hop!
(The hop runs from February 11 - 14 and each author will draw their own winner so make sure to leave your name on as many hops as possible for the best chance to win - AND don't forget to leave your comment here, as well - I'll even give you an extra entry if you follow my blog :D)
(PS if you're interested in Theme of Hearts, you can read my other story with Gage and Rylan for free here --> Outfoxed)
