Autumn is the time of year I like to call the Golden Latitudes because, if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, anywhere between the 35th and the 55th latitudes, there is no wrong place to be—whether you're in Portofino or Paris, Manhattan or Madrid, Santa Barbara or St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Denver or Devonshire. The colors, the flavors, and the sheer abundance of harvests are staggering. Autumn is when school is in session and life returns to normal, grapes are harvested in Burgundy and Napa and new vintages are released, Christmas catalogues arrive, leaves change, and, if you live in Colorado, snow flies. It's all as though a big fat bowl of cherries has landed in our laps!
This autumn is particularly exciting for me because my new Kick book—The Real Thing—is now available as an eBook on all electronic platforms—Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and Kobo. I hope it lets you set real life aside for a few hours and move into Kick's almost trouble-free world where comfort and opulence abound. The Real Thing may not change your life, but it will surely change your day.
Over the years, it's become clear that what my readers love most about Kick, in addition to the jewelry, are her lifestyle, the food, the wine, and her beautiful Provencale farm, La Petite Pomme. The elegant new covers—created by Ellen Bruss at her international corporate branding firm, EBD Design, specifically for the eBook market—reflect Kick's, and my, love of all things French.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!
