Wherein I am maudlin, rambling, and insufferably sentimental

With such a preface, how can you resist? Read my first post on "Here Be Magic," the Carina Press fantasy authors' blog: Ring the Bell, Close the Book, Quench the Candle. Sure, it's a little long, but you people are readers, aren't you? So act like it, and suck it up! And then be grateful it will be another six weeks until you have to read one of those from me again. ;)

C'mon, I even bought an image for it. It's classy.
