Yeah, February. I see you. I see you and I raise you 45 days until spring. In your FACE.
My dislike of February as the coldest, dreariest month is not something I sugar coat. Getting through February takes serious commitment. There’s the wearing of three scarves just to go around the corner for bread. There’s the eating of way too much bread (preferably warm with whipped butter). And despite increasing daylight time, there’s still too much darkness. Which means I just have to work harder to find more shiny happy sparkly things to focus on. Challenge accepted.
First up: Congrats to the winner of my Now and Forever ARC giveaway, Danielle M.! Please stay tuned for more advance copy giveaways to come leading up to the May 20 pub date.
