V is for "valentine." It is also for "vampire." Coincidence? I think not!
I'm posting this picture because it reminds me of Luke and Cicely, and because it seemed fitting for this lovely, romantic holiday. I, personally, am having a great Valentine's Day because, instead of chocolate, I got something even sweeter: happy reviews! First, The Blair Book Project gave Darkride this kind review which had me smiling all morning. Then Paranormal Book Fan posted this five-star review that kept me smiling all afternoon! Thank you to both these excellent blogs. I'm thrilled that you liked the book and I am truly feeling the Valentine's love.
So, with all this love in the air, I think it's time to give a little! That's why I wanted to tell you about the giveaway I'm hosting on Goodreads. Simply go to the Darkride page on Goodreads and enter by March 1, 2012 for a chance to win one of two signed paperback copies of Darkride!
I know Valentine's Day can feel like sort of a canned holiday, dedicated to a superficial idea of love, but I hope you take today to remember the real truth about love: Love is powerful and subversive and transformative and miraculous, no matter what form it takes, and I hope you get a chance to celebrate that magic and to know that you are loved. Now go out and seize the night!
