#Autumn Newsletter

Discoveries. Adventures. New paths. These words set me on a course this summer to shift my thinking on how I work in my world. I tossed out ideas and systems I had in place for 10 long years. They were no longer serving a purpose. The time had come to stir the pot, clean things out, reorganize priorities, and search for new ideas and tools to streamline my work and personal life.

Well, dear readers, as you can see, this newsletter is one of those projects. I decided to send out my seasonally letter from here in Mary’s Tavern. All the announcements will remain the same—from the opening introduction to news regarding my books, contest and giveaways, promotional events, and quote or recipe of the season. All right here. This way, if you accidentally delete the newsletter email with important news, you’ll no longer have to fear missing out. The newsletters will remain attached to Mary’s Seasonal Musings. Enter Mary’s Tavern at the top of my website. From there, click on the “More” tab to find the seasonal news.

As always, if you have any concerns, questions, or want to leave a comment, feel free to send me an email. I love hearing your thoughts!

May the beauty of autumn illuminate your life this season!,

Promotional Event for October

October is here and it’s one of my favorite times of the year. The weather turns chilly, the leaves change color and I get an excuse to binge-eat Halloween candy/chocolate. As the wind shakes my windows, I love to curl up with a good book. N. N. Light’s Book Heaven feels the same way and they’re hosting a spooktacular giveaway. Sorry, couldn’t resist the Halloween pun. No tricks, just treats for booklovers! Everything from romance to paranormal to e-copy, print, and audiobook codes are being given away. You can even enter to win one of my books. Go on, indulge your inner kid and enter this giveaway. The list is long and personally, I’d love to win myself but alas, I can’t. So, I’ll just live vicariously through the lucky winners. If there’s a particular book or prize you’d like to win, be sure to say which prize you want when you enter via Rafflecopter. Enter below and good luck!
