Let the Good Times Roll

Posted by: Cindy Spencer Pape
Happy Mardi Gras, Everyone!

Eat up today, Lent starts tomorrow! Do you give up anything for Lent? It's not part of my religious practice, and we live in an era with rapid shipping and modern refrigeration, so I usually don't, but the memories from childhood creep in and I do tend to at least think about it.

Things I'd like to give up for Lent if I could:

  • Writer's block. (I think any writer will agree.)
  • Self-doubt. (see above)
  • Cleaning (wouldn't that be nice? Oh, for the day when working writers could afford servants, though I'm pretty sure that time never really existed.)
  • Distractions. (This one is more a matter of willpower.) 
NEWS:
I also want to let everyone know that I'll be a guest at the Howell (Michigan) Spring Comic Con on Saturday, March 18, at Cleary University. If you're in the area, come out and have a good time. I'll be dressed in my steampunk finery, of course! For more information go to: https://www.facebook.com/events/245706472522117/ 

CONTEST:
So, Since it's a special day, I'm having a contest! Tell me what you are, or should, or would like to give up for Lent (or for good) and one random commenter will receive a free download of Devil of Bourbon Street, my romantic suspense with a touch of paranormal set in New Orleans. (or a different book if you already have that one.)

Laizzez les bon temps rouler!
