Are We Ready For The Holiday Recipes?

0


It's that time of year again, my loves, when all the great food and recipes come out of those cookbooks. And I'm back with the weekly shares to make your holidays buzz with happy tummies!

This year, I'm going with Savory Sunday, so all foods are apt to be shared right here on Charlene Blogs. *big smile*

We're starting off with a luscious Creamy Pumpkin soup, thanks to Woman&Home.com*. 

This is healthy vegetarian soup to warm those hearts and tummies, and according to W&H, it's great for kicking those colds and burning that fat!

Freeness Is Going Around!

0
After the big Goodreads giveaway of The Transformation of Anna last month, I didn't expect to have another Free moment for a while. But with Aumelan coming out in January and Destiny slated for May, we're pushing promotion of one of my favorite titles to give everyone a chance to fall in love with the characters who've stole my heart. Watch out, they'll steal yours too! Lol.

So, from now until Midnight October 4th, The Transformation of Anna will be free to download in any e-version your reader requires. No reader? No problem! It's available in PDF also, so you can read it on your computer. *smile*





And let me take a moment to THANK YOU ALL for your support and love. Without you, my stories wouldn't be half as much fun to write. I love sharing my worlds with you!



Until next time,
May your dreams be magical.
