Welcome to the first day of our Fall Blog Hop to celebrate my favorite season Autumn, or the falling of the leaves.
I'm a Cincinnati girl, born and raised, but I'm also a transplanted Floridian. Because I was in the Air Force for a number of years, I also lived in Southern Mississippi and Omaha, Nebraska for awhile.
Living in South Florida, Fall is pretty much non-existent. We have two seasons: rainy season and dry season. Have you heard of Endless Summer? I feel like I've lived with endless summer since I moved here almost a quarter of a century ago. I only get to see true Autumn in pictures, or experience it when I eat or drink the endless supply of pumpkin everything so prevalent this time of year. Of course, it lives in my memories.
This year, I'm extra blessed. I'm going to visit my father, aunt, uncle, and cousins in Cincinnati the end of October. Yay! Not only do I get to see them but I get to be in the middle of a real Fall. I can't wait.
My just releasing story, however, is set in Biloxi, Mississippi which is a lot like South Florida--endless summer. I lived in Biloxi for a few years too, and although it's absolutely gorgeous, it's definitely located deep in the sub tropics - translate that to no snow and no changing or falling leaves like up north.
'Her Men' revolves around Biloxi, the beach, the sun, and revisiting young love, just like I'll be revisiting Fall this October. The heroine Julie is falling in love all over again with the two loves of her life, Timmy and James in the midst of this beautiful place. Just the opposite of me, she's taking a vacation to travel from Indiana to Mississippi so she can have some fun in the sun, to escape the cool weather. In this excerpt, she's actually about to get sunburnt because she's fallen asleep under the afternoon sun.
I will be giving away a pdf or epub copy (your choice) of 'Her Men' to one lucky commenter during the next 3 days of this blog hop. Let me know what your favorite season is and why. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner.
