A decade ago we moved Keil Bay and the Little Man and the Corgis to our new home. It was a dream come true for me. As October passed and we began to learn the whisperings of this piece of land, I waited for the right name to come to me. And then November arrived, and our farm burst into color around us.
The name November Hill popped into my head and stuck there. And so our farm was christened.
Months later I was looking through Keil Bay's papers and discovered that he grew up on a farm in Virginia. That farm's name was November Hill.
We love it as much today as we did the first year. After a hot, buggy summer and a busy and stressful August and September, I'm looking forward to being here, fully present, enjoying and relishing every single day of November Hill's namesake month.
In celebration, I'm offering a couple of freebies from my published books.
From October 30th through November 3rd you will find these two titles free on Amazon:
Don't Miss The Magic - a book of essays on the writing (and creative) process
Search For Fox Hunting Red (Little Shoppe of Colors, 1) - a delightful picture book about two little donkeys who own and operate a shop that sells paints
You can go here for easy "purchase" and download of the ebooks. You are welcome to gift to as many friends as you like during this free period!
