Blog Hop: Autumn’s Harvest

by Vanna on November 9, 2012

Autumn Harvest Blog Hop

This weekend (November 9 – 12) I am once again part of an awesome Blog Hop organized by Carrie Ann Ryan: The Autumn’s Harvest Blog Hop. As the name suggests, this one is all about my second favorite season, Autumn. (In case you’re wondering my first favorite season is Spring:))

Most of my fantasy novel Protector (Anniversary of the Veil, Book 1) is actually set in the Autumn. To me, this season is all about things settling down, getting ready for the long winter sleep and the glorious rebirth in spring. I also love the fact that the colder weather outside means I can curl up under a warm blanket with a good book guilt-free.

One of my favorite quotes from Protector is about the passage of Autumn into winter (I know, I know, I wrote it myself, LOL, but still…):

“Autumn is leaving, and the changing of seasons always brings turmoil. Especially in winter, when twilight comes early and lasts long.”

I’ve discounted my book to 99c on Amazon for the duration of this Blog Hop. Click on the cover to get it 😉

What about you? Why do you love Autumn?

Autumn is my favorite season! I LOVE the cooler weather and the changing of colors. I feel refreshed and glad to be alive when I’m outside on a coll autumn day, enjoying the bright colors!

For me the best part of autumn is the incredibly brisk and clean air. I’m not the biggest fan of being cold but nothing beats the feeling of that first breath of fresh air!

It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!


Evie November 10, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I love the weather because it’s not to so cold.

I love everything about Fall–the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touch (of the cool air). I especially love that the tourists are gone from my area, the lovely deserted beaches, and “sweater weather.” I am the queen of sweater twin sets!

I love the cooler weather and changing colors of the leaves in autumn. Thanks for the chance!


Renee B November 12, 2012 at 1:54 am

My favorite thing about Autumn/Fall is the changing color of the leaves, orange, yellow, red, even purple. 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.

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.


Dita November 12, 2012 at 8:40 pm

I totally love autumn! Especially the leaves changing colour.

Beckey November 12, 2012 at 9:12 pm
