TRICK OR TREAT! I prefer TREATS....


I love October. I love the fall. I love the beauty of trees turning colors, the slow pace of the world, the return of footballand October brings Halloween. When my kids were little, we had the best time dressing up for Halloween. Don't you just love the way you walk around with your children as they go door to door asking for candytreats. I think I loved it because I ended up with most of their stash of candy. I love treats. 

Do you love treats? I don’t have candy to give away but I do have books. Or I should say some of the Roses of Prose have donated to a stash of books to be given away with the OCTOBERFEST WITH BOOKS CONTEST. Last week Novel Works held Suspense Week with Crimson Rose authors. What a great time. Gave away four books!!!! 

So what treat do I have this week for everyoneCOFFEE TIME ROMANCE WEEK. Everything you want to know about Coffee Time Romance will be explored. Book reviews, live chats, Coffee Thought blog, interviews, and so much more. Check out Novel Works with everything Coffee Time offers. 

Reviews are so important to authors. Reviews influence a reader's choice in their selection. You need a place to go to trust the review…Coffee Time Romance. Coffee Time Romance is great for an author because they are so accessible; for a reader because they offer so much help in choosing just the right book for you. Win-win.  

So you want treats…let me tell you how you can gain a chance to win. OCTOBERFEST WITH BOOKS CONTEST is easy. First…follow this blog, Roses of Prose. If you already follow Roses, leave a comment below and your name goes in. Louise Jolly won for following last week. It could be you this week. Check out all the rules on my blog. Giving away books every week until the end of October when the grand prize- a week on Novel Works- is given away.

As a reader would you like the opportunity to post your favorite books for a week…as an author would you like the opportunity to promote your books for a week? 

You can if you win, but you have to enter first. Like, follow, like, follow. Treats...treats...treats...

In the weeks to come following Coffee Time Romance Week on Novel Works, I have a week spotlighting an author a day including Sherri Browning Erwin, Brenda Novak, Ruth Cardello and a special feature on Novel Works, a week with Crescent Moon Press (October's the perfect month for CMP) and a week spotlighting paranormal authors at Wild Rose.

Books will be given away also at the end of Coffee Time Romance Week including those from some of my fellow Roses. Have to wait to find out just ones are being given...but for the ones that have donated check out my blog...

You will find Jerri Hines' next release, The Judas Kiss, out this coming January with Whiskey Creek Press. A historical romance. She's excited because it’s the first in the Tides of Charleston series. You will find her other books, Dream Walker and Patriot Secrets, at most ebook stores. Follow her on Facebook- Novel Works is her fan page where I recommend books, authors, blogs… She's also on Twitter @jhines340. Don't forget the contest rules on her blog. Don't pass up the chance to win!
