There’s a reason I live in the Southern U.S. Well, several. I was born here, for one thing. Then I left and moved to the Chicago area for a few years. I swear to you this is true: I moved on January 1 and did not see the ground till after Easter. For all I knew, there was no dirt under all that ice and snow. Then I moved to Houston, San Diego and New Orleans…all places that don’t do snow.
So here I am, a couple years back in Alabama and I’m freakin’ freezing to death. I swear. We’re expecting a half-inch of ice to coat everything here in the next 24 hours and warning of the icepocalypse tell us trees will snap and if we keep electricity it will be nothing short of a miracle. Great.
So in honor of Icepocalypse 2011, I’m giving away one of my favorite anthologies today. Hotter Than Hell contains thirteen steamy urban fantasy stories from Kim Harrison, Tanya Huff, Marjorie Liu, Cheyenne McCray, L.A. Banks, Susan Krinard, Keri Arthur, Heidi Betts, Lilith Saintcrow, Susan Sizemore, and Denise Little, Carrie Vaughn, and Linda Winstead Jones. And I’m tellin’ ya, these stories are HOT.
Tell me what your weather’s like today. Here in Auburn (home of the Auburn Tigers who’ll be in Phoenix playing for the national championship tomorrow night while we’re huddled under blankets–War Eagle), it’s 28 degrees F and about to rain down snow and ice any minute. Dazzle me with your weather forecast for the day. As usual, +1 entry for comment, +1 for blog follow, +1 for Twitter follow @Suzanne_Johnson, +1 for Tweet or Retweet.
