Labor Day has closed the window on summer vacations, but opened wide the door to the autumn festival, feasting, and holiday seasons. On September 1st, I bought my first bag of Autumn Mix, you know, that little bag of candy corn mixed with orange pumpkins that show up on the shelves of your favorite stores.
So grab a bag and bottle of whatever…candy, chips, dip, drinks, beer, wine…you don’t need difficult instructions for this. And let the fun and frolic begin, because the feasting and festival seasons will run through Halloween, the winter holidays, Super Bowl, Valentine’s, until your last bag of Peeps and Easter bunny candy is depleted, and Memorial Day swings in, and grills fire up once again.
That’s a lot of eating and celebrating. Your remote will be operating overtime with channels loaded with football, basketball, baseball, and other favorite videos. In spite of all that you still won’t be satisfied, until you show some love to your Kindle, Nook, or other favorite eReader. You can do that by loading your eReader with some simmering romance books.
Try some new authors; look for some who are independent authors, AKA “Indie Authors”. They’re like me, writers who’ve struck out on their own to publish their stories directly to readers. By doing so, we can offer our books to you quicker, more conveniently, and at a reasonable price. And after you’ve enjoyed a “goodread”, be thoughtful and write a review. Let other readers know why you enjoyed the book. It helps spread the word and is a big encouragement to authors.
Of course you already know that I’ve published four romance novels and all are available from your favorite eBook online retailers, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Apple iBookstore, Sony, Kobo, etc. I write romance with HEA (Happy Ever After) endings, but first I hope to put you on edge before you get to the ending.
I’ve started on my fifth novel and so far it promises to be, uh…fiery? Some readers have thought my earlier novels were a little “tame.” So I’ve found some brand new characters who don’t know what the word ‘tame’ means, and I’ve got some fresh ideas for novels in that range of heat. Maybe they will become a separate collection from my first four. Who knows what a bag of Autumn Mix can do to a writer?
I’d better get back to my computer; I hear heavy breathing from some of my characters.
