Fall is the perfect time to curl up with a new book. And I just got my copies of my latest book, Captive Dreams. In honor of that and because I love comments and subscribers, in October I am running a contest. On November 1 I will pull one lucky name from the subscribers to the Law Books & Life. That person will win a $30 gift card to B&N, CBD or other online bookstore of their choice. I will also pull a winner for another gift card from those who leave a comment on my blog. So sign up and comment away.

Don’t forget this contest ends October 31 — so leave your comments and sign up on Feedblitz today! What’s your favorite fall activity?

  1. Your books look interesting – I’ve traveled all over this great country of ours and from coast to coast the beauty of the Lord is evident.

    it is nice to be able to read wholesome stories…thanks to you and your fellow authors for stories of encouragement and inspiration…Paula Shene

  2. I enjoy your honesty and refreshing outlook on the different things you discuss on you site.

    As for favorite falltime experience, watching the leaves turn such brilliant colors and walking around in the wooded areas.

  3. Love spending time with Tanner outside. And we’re big high school football fans. Nothing like sitting in the stands on a crisp fall evening all bundled under our blanket watching the hometown boys play. =)

  4. I’m an avid reader! I love so many things about fall, but some of them are sipping hot chocolate, sitting by a bonfire roasting marshmallows, pumpkin pie, watching the leaves change colors, crisp evenings and chilly mornings.


  5. My favorite fall activity is going to the pumpkin patch, and also to watch the leaves change. Everyday they change a little bit more until they’re all gone! Thank you for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  6. going to the apple orchard!

    Or what we did last weekend! celebratd my mom’s 50th birthday and took all 7 nieces and nephews to the pumpkin patch and played and took a hayride! it was so fun!

  7. I love going for a drive to see the changing colors up in the mountains, the pumpkin patch with my 2 daughters, and playing in the leaves with my girls. I love Fall!!!

  8. Well, evidently, I’m going to play golf in a 36-hole cross country fall extravaganza scramble. I have been so sick this week, I am reserving my strength for Saturday. I have my special golf gloves.

    I’m outside every day, rain or shine, cold or hot, and I like seeing my woods change in all the seasons, but I delight in things like the squeaking mouse who jumped out of the thick leaves(we have TONS) and dove back down, scrambling to get away from my tromping boots. I like the swishing of leaves when I tromp through.

  9. Favorite Fall activity? I’d say taking walks with my kids to look for beautiful fall foliage and pine cones and such. Then going home to turn them into personal works of art! =) Thanks for the chance!

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  12. I have to think back a little bit since it’s snowy and cold here already. = ) I think I like taking walks under and over the autumn leaves, hearing them crunch under my feet, smelling the crip air, and feeling the perfect temperature for some light exercise. Fall is a gorgeous season, but way too short.

  13. I love being outside in the fall and looking at the colors on the trees! I also love cooking up all sorts of pumpkin goodies. girlygirlsboutique(at)gmail(dot)com

  14. I love taking my son to the apple orchard. They have all kinds of fun activities for kids including a petting farm and they make their own pumpkin donuts! YUM!

  15. Any fall activity that I can do with my kids is my favorite activity…raking (and of course jumping in) the leaves, going to the pumpkin patch in search of the perfect…er um the FIVE perfect pumpkins, carving pumpkins and eating the toasted seeds, dressing the kidlets up for Halloween, celebrating family at Thanksgiving, playing outside on a crisp day…um oops, you just wanted one…Can you tell I just love fall?!
    Thank you so much for the chance to win. All of my children, my husband, and myself are avid readers so this would definitely go to good use!

  16. Fall isn’t my favorite time of the year, but I do like that it is getting cooler outside so we can turn on the heat and cuddle up with a good book and blanket.

  17. My favorite fall activity is hunting…I know, I know…some people don’t like it,but we are responsible hunters and it puts food in our freezer!!!

  18. I love the fall. It’s by far my favorite season. As for what my favorite activity is….cuddling up and reading a good book, driving around and seeing the leaves/decorations, eating carmel apples, etc.

    i subscribed as well!

  19. After trick-or-treating with my kids (I have to restrain myself from running door to door), it’s baking pumpkin-flavored things: muffins, cookies, bars. Can you tell I’m a sugar junkie?

  20. What a great giveaway! I love the smell in the air. I know that’s not really a “thing to do,” but I guess my favorite thing is smelling the fall air!

  21. Oh I love the change in the weather for fall. It is awesome and so beautiful. Going to the pumpkin patches is my favorite activity though!

    Thanks for this great giveaway.


  22. WE (meaning my little ones) LOVE mommy making homemade apple bread from fresh picked apples. Carving pumpkins always means toasted pumpkin seeds too!

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!
    We love fall too

  23. Hi Cara. I don’t know what my favorite fall activity is. I love doing our family picture, but the teens complain. I enjoy raking leaves, but this year it seems like there were 2x as many. I enjoy going to the apple orchard and pumpkin picking, neither of which we’ve been able to do this year. Sometimes I hate being a single mom. I can’t be everywhere at once. πŸ™‚

  37. I like changing out my wardrobe! Putting away the shorts and tank tops and pulling out long sleeves! I also like drinking hot apple cider, or hot chocolate. Thanks!

  38. Walks along our river-side park, watching the waves and at the same time watching our daughter running through the leaves. She loves to do this, loves the crunching sounds. And we, we love to watch the joy on her face.

    Cheers, Kiy

  39. We don’t really have much fall here but I’m going to start a tradition this year of buying pumpkins at the pumpkin patch (bought three the other day) and making great pumpkin recipes from them. This has been our first year to buy pumpkins, I know I’m a little behind.
