Glorious October and This Week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words


fall-clip-art-fall-clip-art-11This year our fall has been glorious!  The weather is perfect, holding off those cold temperatures while still giving us a taste of the clear, crisp air and blue skies that I think of when fall arrives in Maryland.  The Farmers markets and stores are full of Crisps, Cortlands, Stayman’s and Winesaps!  Am I thinking of homemade apple pies?  You betcha!

The leaves are just starting to turn here so I hope there will be plenty of color  around when I return from Chicago and GRL.   As we approach the dates for GRL, we are starting to lighten our schedule in anticipation.  It’s just temporary and we will be back up and reading away upon our return.  So many things to prepare for, think to pack, and get excited about.  So many great authors will be there and I can’t wait to hear about all the new books, events, and author readings that will be taking place.

This week, our young YA reviewer, Aurora, has her first review on Saturday.  I can’t wait for more of her reviews and fresh perspective from someone with much younger eyes and mind than mine! lol  PaulB, Barb, the Zany, Old, Lady and Sammy are well accounted for too.  How much fun is this?  But if you want to review for Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words, we have plenty of room for more reviewers.  Drop me a note and let’s talk!

Quick Cool Announcement:  Riptide Publishing has a new Josh of the Damned story, Merry Christmas, Josh from  Andrea Speed, free at Riptide right now.  Go here to download!  If you love the Josh of the Damned warped universe as much as I do, this is a great gift to get for yourelf!  Do it now!

Now onto to our schedule for this upcoming week.
