Love is All You Need. A Giant Valentine's Day Giveaway.

Valentine's Day: it's easy to be a cynic. Valentine's Day was created by the greeting card and chocolate industries. And I certainly don't think that Valentine's Day provides an excuse to be lazy about your relationships for the rest of the year, but I do think it's nice that once a year we have a day especially set aside to celebrate all the ways love alters us and our lives. I think it's meant to remind us that we should be prizing those relationships all year. 

Now I'm not saying that Valentine's Day needs to be a massive commercial venture. Homemade cards and small but thoughtful gestures can be be the best. So maybe sneak a special treat into your significant other's lunch bag, make them a mix "tape" or get up early and warm the car up before they get in it.Or go all out with rose petals on the bed and a reservation at a nice restaurant. Though, you may want to get on that if you haven't yet. The point is, that big heart on the calender isn't meant to tell you to purchase the requisite flowers and chocolates, it's meant to remind you to take a moment to appreciate your love.* How you do so is entirely up to you.

And please, love is love, feel free to celebrate your friend love or the love you have for your nephew, your mom, your neighbor or your cat. Probably best to avoid celebrating your love for your neighbor's cat. That might get weird. 

I wanted to celebrate the love I have for my readers. When I checked around, I found a bunch of other writers did too. So I set up a giveaway. :) Two lucky readers are going to get a bunch of books.

* This statement is in no way meant to suggest that flowers or chocolates are anything less than lovely, just that if purchased they should be purchased thoughtfully.

So, would you be my Valentine?
