Marketing.
So I’m diving into learning all I can about marketing my books. I have to say that the process has been exciting, overwhelming and scary…and that was just day 1. So many new thoughts from other authors on this topic. Hopefully, I will run across some that work for me.

Pumpkin roll deliciousness!

So it’s that time of the year again. Pumpkin flavored everything!  So I make this pumpkin roll every year. My husband forbids me to make it unless we are having company. Funny story…I made this a few years back. Husband and I each have a piece and then I cover it up and put it in the refrigerator. A few days later as he’s eating another piece I ask him if it’s good cold. He says “You mean you haven’t had any of this since it’s been in the refrigerator?” I look in the refrigerator and it’s almost gone. Hence, the I can’t make the pumpkin roll unless we have company.  Anyway, I thought I could at least share the recipe with everyone.

Black Friday Shopping…Yes or No?

I personally am not a fan of Black Friday shopping. Mainly because I’m a night person. The thought of getting up before the sun to go fight the masses doesn’t tend to appeal to me. I understand why some people do. The deals make it worth the effort if there’s something you really want on sale. I would rather do Cyber Monday in my pajama pants and a hot cup of coffee. So much less stressful to point and click.

Then there’s the way people treat each other shopping. The news is full of how horrible we can be to each other. Multiple cities around the country show similar scenes of chaos and fights. I’d love to say I just don’t watch the news, but it seems to play on loop everywhere. Really wish we could all just treat each other well. Seems like that should be easy.

I do enjoy strolling around the stores at this time of the year. Christmas music playing and deals everywhere. I admit that my experience is different than most other people. I work from home so I tend to avoid shopping anytime after 5:00 PM unless I really have to. Why fight the crowds if you don’t have to?  That being said, I hope everyone has at least one stress-free shopping day.

As the group’s tour guide, Paige couldn’t leave anyone behind. It was against policy, liability issues, and all that other crap. It was times like this that she really didn’t like her job, which sucked, because most of the time, she really liked her job. Especially this time of year. October brought out all the weirdos and fun people that she loved to meet. From the vampire worshipers to the Cthulhu enthusiasts, these groups were a truckload of freak sauce, which made her feel like she actually fit in.

Every now and then there was one person that spoiled it for the rest. This time, it happened to be little Billy. It wasn’t really his fault. He was like, six years old or something; too young to be left alone, but not old enough to appreciate the historical spookiness around him. That didn’t make the situation any less annoying.

Billy stomped his feet. “I wanna go, now!”

Paige rolled her eyes. Oh, hell. This was going to turn into a full on whine-fest that she didn’t have time for. The rest of the group was trucking down the block toward the cemetery without them. She scanned the cobblestone street. People from all over the country littered the sidewalks in their Halloween costumes. Salem was a popular place this time of year, so there was no lack of variety or number. The shops were decked to the nines in fear-gear and creepy decorations. Life-sized witches greeted customers at every storefront with a screeching cackle, while black cats arched their backs in wide-eyed stances of fright. Bales of hay and stalks of corn were around every light post along the main streets, softening the otherwise dark atmosphere. October was Salem’s month, and shop owners did their best to capitalize on the short window of opportunity and popularity. Halloween ambiance wasn’t what Paige was looking for however. She needed to find incentive for little Billy to get a move on. Fortunately, across the worn cobbled street, next to Faust and Fun, she found it.
