Why Author Katie Reus Loves October, Plus Giveaway!

by Katie Reus, author of A Jaguar’s Kiss (Harlequin Nocturne Cravings, October 2012)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I don’t know about you, but October is one of my favorite months of the year. I love ringing in a new season because change is always fun and of course, this month rocks because of Halloween! I might be an adult but I still like to dress up. And this year I have a little one so I have an excuse for matching costumes (please, no mocking). Here are some things that make this October fun for me:

1. Halloween – pumpkin carving, candy corn, scary movies, and chocolate!

2. The leaves and weather are starting to change and everyone always seems to be in a better mood.

3. I can finally start wearing boots again! For this born and raised Florida girl (I don’t live there anymore), I’m a big fan of getting to change my footwear.

4. Chocolate is on sale everywhere!

5. There are a lot of amazing new releases this month, some of which I’ve been waiting for close to a year. My kindle is about to overload.

6. I have an excuse to decorate with a paranormal theme!

7. A Jaguar’s Kiss releases this month! Yes, that’s a little bit of promo, but it’s definitely one of the reasons I’m happy about this October.

If you like reunited lovers stories with a side of paranormal goodness, I hope you check out A Jaguar’s Kiss:

Owen Wright, alpha of his wolf pack, hasn’t seen jaguar shifter Gabriela Segura in nearly ten years. She was his first love—until he did something to drive her away just as their relationship was heating up. Now Gabriela has returned to Montana, and his craving for her is stronger than ever.

But a recent string of brutal attacks on humans have the wolves suspicious of the jaguars, threatening the tenuous peace between the packs. Before he can claim Gabriela as his mate, they must join forces to prove her family’s innocence and track down the true predator.

    Halloween was a great time while my children were kids and i could snitch their candy..now they have grown up and i can’t eat” real” candy.I still get a kick out of the neighbors little imps.

  2. One of the best things about October is my son’s birthday! I do love that it is a changing of seasons and that it gets darker which make the evenings feel cozier at home. Congrats on all your success, Katie!

    My favorite things for October are I was born October 1st, pumpkin chai lattes, jeans and hoodies, and cuddling up on the couch on a cold day with a good book. Great job on your books! Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. These are great reasons to love October, ladies! And Lisa, I can’t believe I forgot pumpkin chai lattes! Delicious 😉

  7. thanks for a fun post and congrats on the newest release! I love seeing how much fun the kids have. However, I’m not a big fan of Halloween right now cuz the herd of dogs I have (3) hate the doorbell and knocking. So, to keep the fit a minimum, I sit at the end of the drive way with the candy. Hoping it’s not too cold this year 😉

  8. Nice list. I like all the candy.

  9. Congrats on the new release. Sounds fantastic. I love when the leaves change color, being able to drink hot beverages by fire(which we can now light), and the after Halloween candy sale. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. I love to be able to wear my spider jewelry and not look like a complete weirdo, lol
