It’s October 1 and has been officially autumn for the last two weeks or so. I love this season. I love the scents, the cooler weather, the changing leaves, and the shortened days. Of course, in Arkansas weather, the change in season can take a while. The high temperature was 92 today. I am ready for 72-degree weather. I published my third novel, What I Learned That Summer, on August 2, which would have been my late Aunt Diana’s birthday. Sales have been slow so far, but I anticipate them picking up around the holidays. Books make wonderful gifts, you know.
