Am I really as old as that TV set? No. Cute baby, though.
My birthday is Valentine’s Day. It is a good day to be born.
Twice as many kisses; I always say. My brother was born on St. Patrick’s Day, which is odd. Two boys, two saints, both mostly fictionalized. My mom always made a heart-shaped vanilla cake, with vanilla icing and little peppermint hearts trimming the edge. It was delicious. My awesome wife Ariane, who also happens to be an awesome chef and could fix me the ultimate birthday cake using the Magnolia Bakery recipe, but I’m off sugar. Oh well, cupcakes for the kids.
I have a lot to celebrate this year. My family is healthy and happy. This is my first birthday as a published author. I’m almost finished with my second book. I’ve had a great reception to The Book of Paul, which has become an Amazon bestseller. The reviews have also been great. People feel passionately about it. What’s not to love?
One of the things I love most about having a Valentine birthday is that it’s not just for me. I get to give Valentines to my wife and kids and friends and now…to all the past and future Paul fans! So in celebration of the recurring anniversary of my 48th birthday, the ebook version of The Book of Paul is on sale all week (2-10 through 2-16) for 99 centavos which I’ll autograph for you HERE with the authorgraph service.
Paul proves his heart is into the festivities and got me to sell the paperback copies for 50% off this week (HERE.)
Plus, because I love my readers, I have a special bloody Valentine day Trivia for those who’ve read and survived The Book of Paul:
