A Note To Readers
Hello everyone and welcome to a new edition of my monthly newsletter. We have been getting complaints that some readers couldn't see the last newsletter so it was time for an overhaul. So please email Terri at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you had any trouble seeing this version of my e-newsletter.
My latest addition to the Argeneau series was just released Tuesday and it's called The Bite Before Christmas. My story is about Teddy Bruswick, Port Henry's chief of police and local Scrooge. Teddy if not fond of Christmas at all! As a matter of fact he does his best to avoid the holiday altogether as he always feels like the 'plus one' in the group. But living in a small town makes it hard to avoid especially since his friends insist on his attendance. This year Teddy thought enough was enough and decided to spend the holiday at the Willan's cottage hours away from Port Henry. Except he's not alone as there's a bold blond in the cottage next door and they're both trapped there after a storm takes the hydro and blocks their access road out... guess they'll just have to keep eachother warm.
Thank-you for all the entires for contest #22 as most of you got the answer right. The main character in The Bite Before Christmas, Teddy Brunswick, is also the name of my new Bichon Frise/Poodle puppy, Teddy. Congratulations to Lauren Jamisen and Denise Mobley, who are the winners of a signed copy of my latest release, The Bite Before Christmas. Hope you enjoy Teddy's story!
And a second Congratulations goes to Jessie J.S, the winner of a signed copy of The Immortal Hunter! Nice costume Jessie. It'll be a hit.
And of course this is the edition which celebrates All Hallows' Eve, one of my favorite holidays of the year. Not only do we have an excuse to dress up as anyone of anything we like but it's a scary holiday so we can get away with scaring anyone we like. Hmm... I wonder where Terri is.<WG>. Besdies that is the origin behind the saying 'trick or treat'. Trick-or-treaters could play a trick on the homeowners if they refused to give them a treat when they came around. Come to think of it I haven't had one trick-or-treater come knocking on my door in the last six years. I do have security ghouls guarding my front door ... and Emma-the-housecat has been known to bite but really I'm not THAT scar... (pause)... am I?! LOL
I hope you have a devilish time this weekend and remember to keep a couple of pieces of your favorite candy for yourself. Happy Halloween and don't let any of the little trick-or-treaters bite cause you never know what will happen if they do...
