Celebrate Fall with Lara Lacombe!

Happy Fall, everyone!  It's finally starting to cool off here in Texas, which makes me happy--I get to wear sweaters, eat soup, and curl up on the couch with a blanket.  I love most things about this season (with a few notable exceptions), and so I was especially thrilled when I found out my debut novel, DEADLY CONTACT, would be released in November.

A graphical representation of how I spend the holidays...
In my day job, I'm a college science professor.  I've reached the point in the semester where I'm counting the days until Thanksgiving break--not just because of my love of all things pie-related, but because I'm looking forward to having a couple of uninterrupted days to read. My TBR pile (well, okay--mountain) needs a little attention, and I can't wait to spend a day (or two) with a book in one hand and a fork in the other.  Bliss!

I should probably stretch before tackling this...
What about you?  What are you looking forward to this holiday season?

And before I go, I wanted to let you all know that I'm holding a contest to celebrate the release of DEADLY CONTACT!  Simply post a picture of you and the book (Tweet me or post it on my Facebook page) and you're entered to win a gift certificate to Amazon or Barnes & Noble!  The more pictures you submit, the better your chances of winning, so get out there and start snapping!

    1. Thanks, Maureen! I love lemon pie, but I have to say my absolute favorite is buttermilk pie--so good!
