    This looks like a wonderful read. I am not sure I read anything by this author as yet.

    I sympathize–hell, my birthday’s a couple of weeks AFTER Christmas and I can tell people think it’s too soon!

    I do like my birthday, but not parties – would especially not want a surprise party.

    Thanks for the post and congrats on the release!

      I’d impressed on my co-workers that I wanted my birthday to fly completely under the radar–as in no notice paid whatsoever–and they decided to give me a surprise un-birthday party in July! This did not go over well… Thanks for stopping by, Jen!

    LOL! I hate birthday parties as well, the worse kind is the “surprise” ones… I do not like my birthday that much (or being remembered my age…)
    Congratulations on the release, The book sounds great

      I still can’t convince my children that the best birthday gift is giving the whole day a complete pass. Some day… Thanks for the comment, Susana!

    I can do without my birthday, it’s like a normal day almost. My family do take me out for dinner but I would be okay without it.

      This year, I’ll be on a plane on the way to NYC to spend the holidays with the kids. We may do dinner (although one of my sons will be working that evening and won’t be able to come with us). As long as it’s low-key (and I can pretend it has nothing to do with me!), it’ll be good! Thanks for stopping by!

    I have a summer birthday so I never got the class celebration. I really hated that when I was a kid. violet817(at)aol(dot)com

      My brother probably felt the same–although he always got to open a present on my birthday too. (Needless to say, the reverse was not also true!)

      I hope she has a wonderful birthday this year (and ever after, of course)–with as much attention as she’s comfortable with!

    This is one of my favorite posts of yours so far. You shared something personal (I wanted to throw your younger self a party myself, though as an introvert, I understand your feelings completely!) and something you gave your character that I hope he can overcome in the story. Thank you for the glimpses! peachescon(at)gmail(dot)com

      Awww. Thank you! (If it was a low-key party–maybe without the word “birthday” mentioned at all, so you know, the vengeful cosmos wouldn’t notice–then it would totally work!)
