|Let's be honest, my coffee is always calling.|
Especially on chilly fall mornings!
Who is excited for Autumn? This is by far my favorite season. There are so many things to look forward to!
I’ve lived in a lot of places around the country, from Colorado to Washington State, and even as far west as Hawaii and I can honestly say I’ve never seen a region celebrate this season quite like New England.
Local farms all around the area open up their fields to crowds of eager apple pickers. My husband and I always make a point to go at least once a year and inevitably I come home with a bag full of apples and grandiose plans to make all the apple recipes on my Pinterest board (of which I am neither a baker or a cook.)
Then, there’s the apple cider donuts, pumpkins, various seasonal squashes, and buckets of colorful mums to buy up. And don’t forget the corn mazes and hayrides!

Plus, there’s fall fashion, with leggings, cozy sweaters, cardigans, scarves and boots. Don’t you love how forgiving the clothes are for this season? They can truly flatter any figure.
This year, I have another great thing to look forward to. I’ll be one of the authors participating in the Fall in Love with New England Author/ Reader conference. I love getting out and talking with readers and potential fans. Plus, I get to hang out with – and in some cases meet for the first time – a few of my fellow Romance Gems, including: Nancy Fraser, Elsa Kurt, Lucinda Race, Kari Lemor, Nora LeDuc, Kathryn Hills, and Peggy Jaeger!
|I love decorating my mantle for the season!|
Not only that, but I have a super big surprise for anyone attending. I’ve been diligently working on getting my Christmas novella ready to publish on November 1st, and will have the first physical copies available at the conference BEFORE it’s official release date.
Stay tuned for next month’s post when I reveal the Secret Gifts cover and blurb. In the meantime, what's your favorite thing about this time of year?
