Happy Fall!!

Hello readers! I'm writing you while the meatloaf bakes in the oven. Mmmmmmmm.....
I hope your Fall is well under way and you are enjoying the colors where ever you live. Is everyone ready for a season of winter reading?

I have my ToBeRead Pile waiting for me to dig about you?
The TBR pile is not complete, but here's my start:

It's been a little while since I've posted. Here is what has kept me busy lately:

I've been working on content edits for a 1890's sweet love story--all I can say is that the pics below might have impacted the inspiration for the story. When those edits are complete, I'll send them along with a proposal to my agent to be shopped around with editors. While that gets shopped around, I'll turn my sites to the next story idea, which may involve a jump back to Post-Revolutionary War period. So, in the mean time I'm researching the time period.

My daughter was able to attend Breathe Conference with me in Grand Rapids, Michigan a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed the wide variety of authors and speakers there, including both fiction and nonfiction. It gave us a chance stay at a cute revived hotel nearby Lowell, Michigan. Plus, morning coffee at this cute place was a must!

Fall is also the time for our annual block party, which is more like our "square mile" party. It was especially fun since it was held at the old Stump Homestead, settled in 1838. The buildings were open to tour, and the homestead boasts the largest Ginko Biloba tree in all of Elkhart County--maybe even the midwest. It's over 150 yrs old, and is thought to have been brought with the settlers for medicinal reasons.

Readers: I'd love to hear what you've been reading, and what's on your TBR pile--both fiction and nonfiction! What have you been doing this Fall to enjoy the season?

  1. OH! I wish I had known you were here - in GR! Isn't Lowell just the cutest country town? I love that coffee shop, too. :) Were you able to go to Baker Book house? Best book store in all of Michigan. I might be a tad biased since I live 15 minutes away. :) I love that you brought your daughter! My TBR pile is kind of a mess right now - I need to prioritize it. I love when you share your historical tidbits! I have been enjoying the yellow leaves falling in the crisp fall air. I hope you have a good fall!

    1. Susan, I didn't know you were that close! Yes, Lowell, is really quaint and wonderful! Baker Book house had a mini bookstore set up at the conference, and I was a total goner. I did manage to limit myself. It's probably a good thing I wasn't at the larger one. I'm glad you love the historical tidbits, I'll try to keep them coming as I can. Happy Fall :)
