Valentine’s Day is almost here and while many people see the holiday as a time to express and celebrate romantic love, it can be so much more than that! For me, the holiday is about all kinds of love: love for our parents, our children, siblings, close friends, and pets.
I love you and I’m trying to explain in ways those three words can’t. I’m trying to say that you mean the most to me. I’m trying to let you know that I adore you and that I cherish all the moments we’ve spent together. I’m trying to explain that I still want and need you. I am trying to let you know that I’ve always meant it whenever I say ‘I love you’.

The word “love” can also be used to describe how we can become deeply committed and connected to something. For example, in my debut novel, What Happened to Helen, the two main characters share a deep love for art and I’m willing to bet that you and I share a great love for reading. Valentine’s Day is truly a holiday for everyone when we consider the many types of love that can brighten and enhance our lives.
To celebrate my love and deep appreciation for you and all my readers this Valentine’s Day, we’re running a special, multi-day giveaway called #Valentinesdayspecial. From today, February 13-14, two lucky winners will be randomly selected each day to receive a ₦1,200 gift card to shop at The Ebook Hub.
My mailing list subscribers can enter for a chance to win by simply sharing my latest email message on social media or by forwarding it to someone they care about, telling them about someone or something that they’ll be celebrating this Valentine’s Day. For fans that follow me on social media, they can enter by replying to the my #Valentinesdayspecial giveaway post on Facebook , Twitter, or Instagram with a comment telling me where love shines brightest in their life. Is it their family, friends, reading or writing? There are so many types of love that can fill our hearts!
