Autumn is my absolute favorite season! So it’s no surprise to me that my novel, A Husband for Danna, takes place during the season I look forward to all year long. Below are some pictures of what I envision Luddy’s Annual Strawberry Festival looks like. Eric takes Danna to the festival, intent on showing her that she’s judged him all wrong.
I loved writing the scenes from the strawberry festival so much that I asked the cover designer if they could incorporate it into the cover. Take a look at the beautiful colors in this cover. Fall is the season of color so I think it’s so fitting for this story.
Though my hometown doesn’t have a strawberry festival, we do have an annual craft fair and apple festival during the fall. But what I really look forward to is putting up decorations that celebrate the season. In September, my house is filled with pumpkins and scarecrows. Then on October 1 the Halloween decorations come out. Nothing too scary because I sure don’t want to scare away those sweet little ones that I look forward to seeing all dressed up. A few black cats, a rubber spider, one scary witch, a lone ghoul and a blanket of fake spider webs cover the bushes surrounding our front porch. Here are a few photos of our house ready for Halloween.
What kind of decorations do you put around your house during autumn? Do you like to decorate for Halloween?
