Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop

Click the image for a list of participants

Autumn is my favorite time of year for a number of reasons. First, there's football. Second, it's the only time of the year when the weather outside isn't too much for me to handle. You see, I'm "allergic" to the heat -- I get migraines, visual disturbances, and I vomit. Yeah. Not fun. Conversely, in the winter, the cold is very painful to my arthritis. So for me, Autumn is my time!

I live in Upstate NY. If you've never seen Upstate NY in the autumn, you should. The colors are absolutely breathtaking. There's a lot to do, as well, from apple picking, to touring pumpkin patches, and of course - haunted houses. My husband and I got married in a haunted house. :-)

I love the flavors and scents of autumn, as well. Cinnamon. Apples. Cider. Pumpkins. There's a certain kind of magic in the crisp air. Like the world has a secret it can't wait to share with us.

  26. I love autumn with all the brilliant colors: oranges, yellows and reds of leaves. I love crisp, cool mornings where the sky is so blue it looks endless and the air is so fresh in your lungs. I love snuggling up in a warm throw on a cold autumn day with a good book. Of course, I love snuggling up with a good book about anytime of the year. I love Thanksgiving because it is a time to remember all the many blessings in my life and express thanks. I love baking spicy pumpkin pies with dollops of cream.

    I like stories of the unexpected. I also love the steamy passion but I hate mentioning favorite authors because the list is long. I appreciate the many styles authors use to weave stories of mystery, love, intrigue, preternatural and inspiration. I love reading because I can go anywhere, any time in my mind and imagine indescribable things.

    Thank you for this contest and the opportunity to be introduced to new authors.

  27. I love Autumn for the leaves. I read lots of books as it gets colder.
