A Fall Love Affair

fall leaves

Fall is my favorite.

Never mind what comes after. We won’t talk about that now. (This is a happy place.)

For now, we will strictly focus on FALL and all that is lovely.

The vibrant leaves on the trees.

The air turning crisp.

The scent of burning leaves.

Pumpkin spice coffee creamer.

Bags and bags of candy corn in the candy aisle at the grocery store.

Pumpkin patches and hay rack rides and jack-o-lanterns.

Apple orchards and sweatshirts and jeans and the crunch, crunch, crunch of leaves under my sneakers.

Hot chocolate in styrofoam cups at Friday night high school football games.

Wrapped up under a down comforter with the window cracked just enough to let in the nighttime chill and the haunting sound of train whistles in the distance.

Yep, I love fall. Love it down to my bones.

Maybe that’s one of the reasons I had so much fun writing my upcoming novella, An October Bride (releases September 23rd). It takes place during two of my favorite months (September and October) in northern Wisconsin, and includes many of my favorite fall-season things listed above. I can’t wait to introduce you to Emma Tate and Jake Sawyer!

An October Bride

Until then…

What’s YOUR favorite thing about fall?

  1. I feel the same way about the Autumn season! It’s my all-time favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚ The foliage is especially pretty and vibrant. It’s such a poetic and daringly beautiful season and the weather is perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to read your novella!

    Do you prefer to write novels or novellas? Why or why not?

  2. Ah, fall! I love it – just everything about it. The crispness, the fashion, the flavors and colors. It’s my favorite.

    Congrats on your novella! It looks fab. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. That picture and your novella cover are beautiful.
    I love sweaters. The nonexistence of humidity. Autumn candles.
    Fall is my favorite season as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It wouldn’t bother me a bit if fall was 9 months of the year. My very favorite season and the perfect time to camp. Looking forward to a couple of years from now when I can retire and my husband and I can take our RV to places we’ve never been.

  5. Fall is my favorite season as well. I love going on car rides into the country just to see the changing color of the trees. I love the crisp cold air and being able to wear long sleeve shirts.Drinking hot chocolate with my son while we snuggle up reading s book is a lot of fun. I think we have something in common Katie because we both enjoy the same things that fall brings. I love the cover of An October Bride as well. Looks really good! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Love the cover for your novella, Katie! Fall is also one of my favorite times of the year, for many of the reasons listed above. I just simply love the changing of the seasons, not only for the dรฉcor, the weather, and the food–but also because it usually means a change in our schedules. It’s fun to shake things up a bit!
