So...it's that day. Release day. I'm so excited!!!!

There's no big party planned, but I feel good about it. Hallowed Circle was just so much fun to write. That doesn't mean it wasn't work, writing is always work, just sometimes doing the work is really enjoyable. Or maybe, as one of the panel titles/suggestions going around for MARCON indicates, All Writers are Sadomasochists. :-)

I dedicated HALLOWED CIRCLE to my son, Logan. He just got his driver's license. I think, in spite of the snow, I'll let him drive me out to some lunch to celebrate. (The plows have cleared the roads.)


How about, since I'm feeling celebratory, let's see if anyone out there reads this little ol' blog of mine. Let's have a contest. (Feel free to let others know via FB/twitter, etc.)

One condition: You have a shipping address in the USA.
One three-part rule: Leave me a reply, tell me who your favorite VICIOUS CIRCLE character was and why.

I'll give it a week--until noon EST on Tuesday January 5th. I'll take all the entries and copy the names, pull one at random, and post it by 2 or 3 pm. Then, you'll have to check back and see if you've won. (You'll have to email me your address.) If the winner doesn't respond within 48 hours, I'll pick a new random winner who'll have the same 48 hours, etc. If those terms sound good to you, please enter!
