I know I led you to believe that Frosted was a novella…thus fiction, but it was all… a lie. It all unraveled for me when I tweeted this quote:
“Do you have any idea how hard it is to blow winter down into Florida? Believe me, I’ve tried. Global warming is a bitch.”
But, well, people had begun to suspect right from the beginning when Frosted came out. The premise of my “story” is that Jack Frost (who I’ve previously “alleged” to be a myth/character) has been trying unsuccessfully to get to his queen who ran off to Florida. I said this was fiction, but then my novella came out and shortly after that… this happened:
But I think a lot of you would have been willing to let that one slide as a weather fluke until this last weekend, when I tweeted the aforementioned global warming quote–which everyone had previously assumed was just a fictional quote (Oh how the lies build!) Immediately, I started getting tweets alerting me that Jack Frost was indeed trying to blow winter down into Florida.
And then the screenshots.
I know. If that one made you uncomfortable, well, you probably won’t like this one either:
*whispers* Yes, that is a freeze warning…and it might as well be a Frost warning.
OH! THE SHAME!
One final brick on the wall.
Not just a freeze warning but a HARD freeze warning. *stares* Actually don’t substitute Frost in that one. *coughs*
How can I make it up to you? What could possibly make up for this level of perfidy?
Oh, I know… how about the chance to win a Snowflake necklace from my “Non-fiction” book’s Blog Tour:
