October is one of my favorite months. I love the cool nights, the crisp mornings, the clean scent of the air and the beautiful, vibrant colors of changing leaves. I love the fact that October brings Georgia Romance Writers' Moonlight & Magnolia conference, college football Saturdays, pumpkin patches and the treats of Halloween. And I love the fantastic line-up of authors who will be visiting the Romance Dish. Get ready for a month full of treats...no tricks allowed!

Wow, 4 years! Definitely looking forward to celebrating.ReplyDelete
It doesn't seem possible that it's been four years. Time really does fly when you're having fun! :)Delete
I like October because we are starting to see the Christmas stories appear.ReplyDelete
Me too, Mary! I love my Christmas romances!Delete
Congrats on 4 years! I'm so happy with your success!ReplyDelete
Great line up for October!
I didn't know that Barbara Pierce was AKA Alexandra Hawkins. I really like Alexandra Hawkins' books!
Thanks, Laurie! I can't begin to tell you all how much I appreciate the terrific readers who support us here!Delete
Oops! Hit enter too soon. ;-)Delete
She'll be back in her Alexandra Hawkins persona at the end of November for an interview with Andrea to celebrate the November 26th release of her next historical, Twilight With the Infamous Earl.
My bday is the end of Oct and lots of great contemps coming out on that day - the 29th. October is baseball and World Series time and we are a baseball family and my Dodgers are in the playoffs, but they have not been playing well in Sept. and they have 2 major injuries with Kemp and Ethier out and some other buys tenuous so it doesnt look good. I would love to see another Gibson repeat from 25 years ago.
Happy early birthday, Pat! Good luck to your Dodgers in the playoffs. Andrea and I are both Braves fans so we'll be cheering for the East Coast this time around!Delete
I’m so ready for fresh air to come our way here in Florida. Then, I can sit on my lanai and enjoy reading these fabulous upcoming October novels! Yahoo!ReplyDelete
Hope it comes your way soon, Connie. I remember anticipating that first breath of fall when I lived down there. :)Delete
Oh, I'm looking forward to the outstanding October the Dishes have planned. Some of my favorite authors will be dropping by, and I know it's a month filled with awesome reading. What a great lead-in to your fourth anniversary!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Janga! And a big thank you to you for all your contributions here at the Dish!Delete
Alexandra Hawkins happens to be one of my favorite authors and I'm in complete shock that I never knew she also wrote under the name Barbara Pierce!! This is why The Romance Dish is my favorite book blog!!ReplyDelete
I'm excited for all the fall releases I have had Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt on preorder for months now! It releases Oct 15 and I can't wait!
Awwww...thanks, Savannah. Like you, Andrea and I are counting down the days until Duke of Midnight!Delete
Am so looking forward to Rumor Has It by Jill Shalvis.. Seems like forever since waiting for this release..ReplyDelete
Me too, Kathleen!Delete
Jill Shalvis books are always great reads. It seems to be a lot of contemporary books this month - I need to branch out lol.ReplyDelete
I need more hours in the day! lol!Delete
Fall is my favorite season! Like you, PJ, I love the changing leaves, the cooler temps/lower humidity, fall decorations, and college football! (Go Dawgs and Go SEC!)ReplyDelete
October sounds like it is going to be a great month here, too. Count on me to drop by!
By the way, I just finished reading Meant To Be by Terri Osburn, and I absolutely loved it!Delete
I love the air in the Fall, just wish it didn't get dark earlier.ReplyDelete
Looks like a great list here. It doesn't seem like you all have been here four wonderful years. Looking forward to more years aheadReplyDelete
That is a great line-up of books/authors! Happy October!ReplyDelete
4 years? I wish I knew about the Dish sooner!! :)ReplyDelete
