The Promise of Autumn

One of my favorite times of the year is fast approaching. I love the Fall season. There's something wonderful about the crisp change in the air, the crunch of leaves underfoot, and the beautiful color collage adorning the trees. It's the time of year I enjoy walking outdoors. I usually carry my camera, hoping to capture the beautiful bounty of iridescent colors, but no photograph can compare to what my eyes behold.

Fall is a time to contemplate the coming winter, when plants and trees go dormant, resting until Spring sunshine calls them to awaken.

Fall is also a time for people like me to suffer headaches, sneezing, itchy eyes...all the symptoms of allergies. However, my medicine cabinet is stocked with decongestants and allergy tablets. Nothing will stop me from experiencing the joy of autumn.

Fall is also the perfect time for beginning a new blogging schedule. September 1st, begins my Wednesday guest bloggers. The first guest to appear will be LoRee Peery. Check the schedule on the sidebar for a complete listing of guest bloggers. Also, the first Monday of each month, The Blog Studio, a "live" television show format, will begin. I'll be interviewing authors, asking some different types of questions to throw them off and allow you to get to know them a whole lot better. We'll be giving away books and more, so be sure to stop by and comment to get your name in the drawings.

September 1st, my newsletter will be available on my website for anyone who wants to find out what's happening in my busy writing life, and I'll be sharing information on new books for readers, writing tips for authors, and lots more! The newsletter will be updated quarterly with each season...Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer.

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
