Valentine’s Day. It can be good or bad depending on whether you have a lover to celebrate with. Somehow, as a romance writer, this holiday feels more...personal maybe.
Before writing this post I thought I’d better brush up on my Valentine’s Day trivia. Wikipedia is a font of information! I had no idea so many countries and cultures had a celebration of love in some form or another. There are even countries that have banned those celebrations, creating a black market for themed products. Here in the US, it’s the second largest card-sending day of the year.
A lot of men argue that the day is designed for women. And I’ll be the first to admit it’s easier to buy for women – flowers and candy pretty much cover the bases. I don’t know about y’all but my DH couldn’t care less about flower and chocolate. He’s getting grape vines. It’s what he wanted. *shrugs* He’s happy so so am I.
Today, the Playfriends want to share our love with y’all. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to give away prizes? Not just any prizes. Books. And chocolate.
We want everyone to share their idea of romance with us. What’s your idea of a romantic date? Or maybe share an inexpensive way to show someone you love them. Tell us about the perfect gift you’ve gotten or given. Or maybe just share a romantic story from you own life. As long as it involves romance, you qualify.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
