Happy mid-November, everyone! I’m gearing up for a book release in FOUR days, as well as preparing my Thanksgiving menu here on our mountainside. Every year I cook the full spread of dishes, mostly from scratch. It’s a ton of work, and I can’t imagine having to do it more than once a year. However, it’s also a lot of fun, too! My kids look forward to certain dishes, and I look forward to everyone else pitching in to wash those dishes afterward. Our favorites are of course, desserts, and not just the pumpkin pie (not quite from scratch. Libby’s canned pumpkin for the win on this one!), but my much anticipated apple-cranberry pie, and the showstopper, chocolate-bourbon pecan pie. I make pie crust art, too: leaves and vines to decorate my pies. I’ve become known as the pie lady around my friend and family circles. Here’s a picture!

Pre-ordered copies will land on your e-reader on release day, so make sure you’ve got your copy ordered! Want to read an exclusive excerpt for free? Check out this nice blog spotlight from Fresh Fiction! Also, are you curious about the true historical tidbits that inspired the story? Clan MacDonald and Clan MacLeod had real skirmishes and feuds, as did Clan MacDonald have against the Grants. Though my romance is a work of fiction, those conflicts proved inspiring to my enemies-to-lovers story between Aileana Grant and Jamie MacDonald.
