Are you counting the days until October?

Three cheers for September, because now we’re that much closer to October, when cooler weather and autumn colors (hopefully) arrive. The start of “sweater weather” makes me so happy!

How about you? Are you a summer beach or an autumn person?

I won’t ask you about winter—here in the Upper Midwest, winters can be just a bit cold and snowy. But then cross country and downhill skiing begin, plus snowmobiling, ice skating, hockey, ice fishing…and frostbite. I’ve had that a few too many times, LOL, even with heavy down jackets and 1200 gram Thinsulate boots. I left skiing behind a few years back and now would rather be writing or curl up with a good book!

In my last blog I mentioned my new clean romantic suspense, DEADLY VENDETTA. Click the link if you’d like to learn more. It’s a great deal!  FREE on Kindle Unlimited, or just $3.99 to buy!

DEADLY NOEL, the next title in this DEA Agents series, and is now available at a bargain pre-order price!  Just click on the title to learn more.

Here’s a quick teaser:

Danger. A lost love. And the improbability of second chances…
Texas DEA Special Agent Sara Hanrahan has returned to her small, northern Minnesota hometown on a perilous assignment.  It’s a place where dark secrets must be kept…and every step could be her last.

I hope you have a beautiful autumn! Leave a comment and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a free e-book copy of any title in my previous series—your choice!

Wishing you all my best,

    Autumn is my favorite time, as I grew up in Pennsylvania. However I have lived out west my whole adult life, where there’s too much heat. Lovely mountains, oceans and deserts though. Some fall leaves but not like when I was a child. The older I get the more I miss seasons. I am thrilled when we get snowflakes that melt, but coat all the surrounding mountains. Have a great fall.
