I'm Irish. Which means I'm superstitious. Which is why I always drink from a mug that somehow represents the story I'm writing. While I have dozens collected over the years, the past few years the mugs have been from whatever service my hero is in.

This is also the last day to comment to win a SEA GLASS WINTER advanced reading copy! Winner will be announced tomorrow on the blog. Just scroll down past the man cold video and Friday photo and you'll see it.
Have a great week!
