Yay! It’s time for another blog hop with Carrie Ann! She does the best hops!
This time the theme is autumn… Honestly, it’s my favorite time of year. While other people have Seasonal Affective Disorder in the winter months, I swear I have it in the summer. All that scalding, bright sunlight about does me in. And I can feel those first dips in the humidity, the slight change in my hair and skin, well before everyone else around me. Maybe it’s because I’m so ready for it?
Admittedly, I don’t celebrate the majority of the holidays of the season. We celebrate Samhain, The Dead Time, Yule, Solstice–the Nature-based holy days. There are a few rituals around them, but mostly it’s all the time of giving thanks. The end of the year has come, and it’s time to assess everything, from household goals and needs to personal writing challenges, successes. At the end of the long (hot) growing season, we harvest. That means we celebrate with a decadent meal, time with our loved ones. We consider what we need to save back to hold us through the winter (literally, metaphorically). We cull out what seeds we need to plant for next year’s goals (Nobel, Pulitzer, etc). We elect what we can give to needy others (volunteer efforts, donations). And we ride out the cold until Solstice tells us it was not all for naught: We get to do it all over again, for another year.

It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!
I like the way you think, Tammy!
My favorite thing about Autumn is that I can keep oven baking yummy goodness all season long. The smell of fresh baked desserts and a hot book are all I need to make it a good night.
Autumn is my favorite season! I like all the beautiful colors outside and the weather is not that hot anymore but not freezing cold either. It’s just perfect! Thank you for the giveaway!
