Hot Chocolate Day is Coming!

So, the other day I realized: it was just two weeks until the Kat boxed set (A Most Improper Boxed Set) comes out in North America! Whoa, I should really do something about that...er?

Well. Here's the thing. It's been a really loooong last few weeks, between child illnesses, stressful house-hunting, etc. The idea of spurring myself up for self-promotion this week sounded, quite honestly, exhausting.

But then I thought of something that would actually be fun and feel like a party. Because, seriously: Kat's getting a boxed set! That is incredibly cool, and something I really never expected to have happen. It deserves to get some celebration!

So! I hereby declare Tuesday, October 7th, the day of A Most Improper Boxed Set's release, to be:

Hot Chocolate Day!

Yes! My dream is that on that day, all over the world, people will drink hot chocolate to celebrate the publication of the Kat boxed set.

You don't have to make any purchases (unless you don't have any chocolate in your house). All you have to do is sip a cup of luscious hot chocolate comfort.

To make that even easier, in the week leading up to October 7th, I'm going to post some of my own favorite hot chocolate recipes. I'd love to share (and learn!) any others, too - if you give me your own favorite recipe, either here in comments or by emailing me, I will add your recipe to the line-up! :)

Hot chocolate, as you guys know, is an obsession of mine. It's my favorite comfort drink in the universe. And basically, the Kat books were hot chocolate for my writer-soul. So it only makes sense that on the day Kat makes her boxed set début, I celebrate by spreading the hot chocolate love as far and wide as possible.

Please join me! October seventh: HOT CHOCOLATE DAY. I'll be there! And so will Kat's beautiful boxed set. :)

OMG, Steph! That's a GENIUS idea! Lol!

I shall most definitely partake of the celebration, and look forward to your favourite hot chocolate recipes.

My usual treat is Cadbury's Hot Chocolate, with cinnamon sprinkled on top, plus some mini marshmallows floating in the deliciousness!

And if I'm feeling really decadent, I'll dunk a strip of chocolate in it, so it goes all melty!

Yum!

I think it should become an annual event ... would a weekly event be too much, do you think?
