If you know me, you can make up your own introduction for this song.

Monday Earworm: Hozier

There’s a lot of cultural stuff going on this week. Mardi Gras, Valentines’ Day, and Ash Wednesday are the big things I can think of right now. So celebrate how best makes sense to you, but here’s what I’m going to do: have some King Cake, write a poem or a love letter, and then make a Lenten promise.

How about you? Are you doing anything special this week to commemorate any of this exciting stuff? Anything else you’re celebrating or observing? Tell us in the comments section!

And in the meantime, enjoy this short film, which is far superior to the actual official music video for this song.

 

Author Event This Weekend

Hey there.  🙂  For any of you in the Houston-and-surrounding-areas area this weekend, I’ll be appearing on Saturday at BrazCon, which is a book festival and comic con aimed largely at the YA set but really open and friendly to all ages. It’s a free event, happening all day. I’ll be speaking on two panels and signing books, so please come by if you’re around and say hello!

Click on this link to see more about the event, including author and artist lists and a full programming schedule. Spoiler alert: there’s a LOT to see and do here! In addition to a veritable slew of authors (myself included), you’ll find workshops on writing and drawing (with Mark Kistler, no less!), a cosplay contest, anime, video and card gaming, fandom paraphernalia (including, if I understand correctly, Daniel Radcliffe’s wand he used when he played Harry Potter in the films), and Houston’s Quidditch team. Plus Star Wars. And Doctor Who. And more I haven’t listed here. Check out their website for further details.

Sounds pretty fabulous to me. I hope to see you there!
