Ah, autumn. Bright days, crisp evenings, and the tang of fallen leaves in the air. I love everything about this season.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, autumn marks the return of gray skies and rain. And that means it’s time for staying home with a book.
One of my very favorite things is coming in out of the wet to find a bright fire on the hearth. The drumming of rain against the windows, the welcome warmth of a cheerful fire, and an engrossing read. Such a comfortable combination.
I’ve heard that October is one of the best times to release a book. Due to a frenzied school schedule–I’m teaching a high school class after all! –I can’t guarantee that the Mercy’s Embrace relaunch will happen next month, but I’m trying.
Speaking of reading, there’s a Darcy By Any Other Name giveaway at The Calico Critic. Bless Laura Hartness, she took on Darcy–all 662 pages–along with starting graduate school. “I applaud Laura Hile’s work,” she wrote, “and am so glad I said ‘yes’ to reviewing Darcy by Any Other Name!”
Come by, read Laura’s wonderful review, and enter to win a Kindle edition. Here’s the link. Her giveaway ends October 8th.
