Well, while my sister is out buying apples so she can make her apple butter, (her home-made apple butter is delicious) I am busy formatting A Circle of Murders to upload to Smashword.  I am also formatting Creating  Kathryn Crown for Kindle and CreateSpace.  Fun, fun, fun.  It is a tedious process, but I will finish both books to be uploaded, I PRAY, by Halloween.

I love Halloween, the night when ghosts, witches and goblins come out to play.  I even have a black cat, who is afraid of anyone who comes in the house.  Halloween is a magical night when the boys and girls dress up for trick or treating.  Toooooooooo much candy.  I’ll buy several bags to hand out,  Hopefully, I’ll have enough children at my door so I won’t have any left because I will be tempted to eat it, and I don’t need to indulge.  I’m not fat, but I can stand to lose a few pounds.  Honestly, maybe several.  That’s why my treadmill is in my bedroom, and yes, I use it.

SO, LAUNCH DAY FOR CREATING KATHRYN CROWN IS OCTOBER 31st!  Our Halloween gift to all you who love books as much as we do.

Here in Colorado, we haven’t had any more snow where I live.  Other parts, higher in the mountains, might have or in the northern part of the state.  But, it has been chilly.  I had to go out Friday.  I was only wearing a sweater, but I had my coat in my car, just in case.  The sun was shining and it was a little chilly because of the wind, otherwise it felt great to me. When I got home, the outside temperature turned out to be in the low forties.  Right now, it is 56 degrees here in the Springs; tonight’s low is going to be 26.  That’s a bit cold.

The front and back yards are looking sad, all brown from the frost we had Friday night.  The elm tree still has its leaves and they’re still green, as most of the trees are around my house.  In town, the foliage has changed to the bright autumn colors and it is beautiful.  Up in the high country the aspens probably have lost all their leaves.  I have not gone to the higher elevations because I’m still adjusting to the change in altitude.  Coming from Florida, which is below sea level in St Petersburg, to a city over a mile above sea level takes several months to become acclimated.   I’m doing better every day.

Well, back to work.  Everyone, have a great day and stay safe and enjoy Halloween.
