Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop!



When people ask what my favorite season is, I never have a good answer for them. Truthfully, I love all the seasons for different reasons, and the hyperactive part of my brain is always ready for a change. I love the colors of autumn, the crisp, cool air, and the fun of digging out my handknit sweaters and getting all cozy. Oh, and boots. I love boots, and probably have more pairs than is justified. 

In the beginning of The Edge of the Sphere, summer is drawing to a close. The change of seasons is just another reminder to Stephen of how his life has stagnated. While he's not unhappy, he can't really claim happiness either. He takes enjoyment from very little, and not much excites him. (Obviously, that all changes.)

I've written some racy, red-hot romance/erotica that got right to the point, but EotS is more of a slow burn. I like to think it's perfect autumn reading - the type of book you pull out when you're curled up in front of the fireplace with your mug of tea, waiting for the steamy parts. (Maybe the anticipation alone is enough to get you to shed a layer of clothing or forgo a blanket!)

Okay, now the part you've all been waiting for: the STUFF! For my part in this blog hop, I'm giving away a signed paperback copy of The Edge of the Sphere.

  1. Thanks for the giveaway!! Super excited for this bloghop.
    I love the autumn!! Favorite season out of the 4. Love the changing of the leaves and the beautiful colors. The smells and freshness of the air...just refreshing! Although getting an extra hour of sleep is great, having darker afternoons are not.

  16. After a frantic summer in a small tourist town, autumn brings beautiful colors, big waves, ships hugging the shore when the water is rough, and a slower, more meandering pace. Love it. terrimuhich(at)yahoo(dot)com.

  17. My favorite thing about Autumn/Fall is the changing color of the leaves. They are so pretty. My least favorite thing is raking up those pretty leaves. LOL I love to curl up by the fire and read a hot romance book on a cold fall evening. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

  25. Thanks for joining in the hop. It was great to be introduced to your work.
    My favorite part about autumn is that the cool weather gives me the perfect excuse to keep my oven full of yummy deliciousness that I really can't do during two of the three other seasons. I love the feeling of being able to have yummy stuff baking while I nestle in with a good read.
