March May be Mad, but I Love This Month!

Laura Breck
Here in Minnesota, it’s starting to warm up. We’re getting rain instead of snow. Days are longer and the sun is warmer. But watch out! This weekend is the MN State High School Boys Hockey Tournament. Next weekend is the Western Collegiate Hockey Tournament. Traditionally, one of these two weekends brings our state a whopper of a snowstorm.

And we didn’t get it this weekend. Uh oh!

Besides being the WCHA weekend, next Saturday is St. Paul’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration. It’s a day-long celebration that’s based on the Irish tradition, but is celebrated by revelers of every heritage. The parade at noon is always interesting, with local Irish families marching and singing and wearin’ o’ the green.

After that, March madness slows down around here as we wait for spring to really set in.

If you’re eagerly awaiting spring, as we are in Minnesota, I’d love to suggest a wonderful book for a wonderful cause.

Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes, and just as many love stories. Love in the Land of Lakes brings you seventeen of these stories, from two childhood sweethearts connecting on the end of a dock on a warm summer's evening, to a city boy's chaotic weekend at his girlfriend's primitive cabin. We bring you the story of a savvy horse who leads her owner to love in post–Civil War farm country, and the haunting romance of an ageless gambler who inhabits a historic riverboat and charms the boat's new owner.

A kaleidoscope of sunshine, snowstorms, and thunderstorms grace our contemporary, mystery, historical, and paranormal stories as the authors of Midwest Fiction Writers spin lovely romances that will send you drifting into happily ever afters.

All proceeds from this book will benefit Midwest Fiction Writers in providing learning opportunities for writers of all levels.

It's warmed up here, too, but I think it's just a tease. The book sounds great!
