But today is special. Valentine's Day is right around the corner.
Honestly? I'm kind of ambivalent about Valentine's Day. It's one of those high-pressure holidays, front-loaded with expectations. If you're half of a couple, you stress about not disappointing your other half. And if you're not, you stress about the world revolving (at least for the day) around everyone who is.
(Or you don't give a crap. That works, too.)
But be that as it may, I still want to do something. For y'all. Because I'm FEELING THE LOVE and I WANT TO SHARE!!! (And really, any holiday that involves ingesting chocolate can't be all bad, right?)
I'll bet you're feeling the same way, huh? That impulse to share? Well, I want to help you do just that.
So, I asked a composite of all my friends (represented by the image below) what she would like for Valentine's Day:

(Guess the balloon and wine weren't enough for her.)
I says to myself, "Self, you can provide that!"
Then, not wanting to be misunderstood about the sexy romp part, I quickly added, "In book form!"
Here's the deal: If you have a friend you'd like to share the love with by sending her (or him!) a Valentine, just leave me a comment saying "I want to share the love!"
I will then choose five winners at random, and will send, to the person of their choice* a signed copy of IN A FIX along with one of the following delicious chocolate bars:
BONUS: The winners will receive an ARC of QUICK FIX, to keep or share, as soon as I have them in my hot little hands. (When will that be? Your guess is as good as mine. But I figure it has to be earlier than Aug. 20, when it will be released in stores.)
Contest will close Monday, Feb.11, at 12 noon EST. Please spread the word!
Even if you don't want to enter (though, honestly, free chocolate for a friend? surely your friend is worth that), you can always leave a comment explaining your philosophical views on the value of boycotting such a commercial holiday.
