Update on "Leaves In Autumn"

This has been a crazy month for me. I know I haven't blogged since September, but I've been very busy. I did want to post a quick update on Book 2 of the Moonridge Memories series, "Leaves In Autumn". Originally, I had it planned to be released on October 30th, and sadly the book just won't be ready by then, and I don't want to put out a substandard book just to meet an unrealistic deadline I set for myself. So its release will be pushed back to November.

The thing about self-publishing is that everything's a bit of trial and error. I know now not to set release dates too far in advance, especially when the rough draft isn't even finished. Live and learn. I'm sorry for any disappointment this may have caused. The book will be out very soon, just not as soon as I was hoping for.

Since this is my last post this week, I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween! It's my favorite holiday, and I hope you're looking forward to it as much as I am :)

For kicks and giggles, here is another old poem from my youth. In high school, I had an assignment to write a poem which includes an example of a simile, metaphor, and personification. Of course I wrote about Halloween. Enjoy!

Halloween Night
a poem by L.M. Pfalz

The ghosts come out,
in the graveyard,
dancing about.
The gates stand guard.

The reaper comes,
like sudden death.
The cold air numbs,
catching your breath.

The darkness hits.
Pumpkin is light.
Be careful, it's
Halloween Night.
