Welcome to Hot Autumn Nights Blog Hop!

Since I live in Oregon, where November means hats and umbrellas and funky polka-dot rubber boots, I’m leaning more toward cool fall evenings. Here are five ways I like to warm things up:

1. Running in from the rain and jumping into a steamy jet tub. Candles, bubbles, wine…need I say more?

2. Cozying up on the coach with a cuddly blanket, coffee, and a good book. My sweetie can join me after some quality reading time. If my cats allow him access.

3.  A Snuggler or two – hot chocolate and peppermint Schnapps, baby. Yummy and warm in the tummy.  Cinnamon whisky does the trick too.

4.  Vacation – somewhere with sunshine, please. Sand and surf might be nice too. Hawaii, anyone?

5.  Bring back that blanket, plant my patooty, and watch True Blood reruns (Eric Northman is better than a heat lamp. Trust me).


photo (1)While I don’t have a copy of my novel Wonderfully Wicked to offer since it isn’t due until January, in honor of my protagonist Kalila Montgomery, I’m giving away a super-soft blanket in dreamcaster red (Curious about dreamcasters? Antihero Lydon gives some dreamcaster tips here), salted caramel hot chocolate, and dark chocolate peppermint candy…all perfect for autumn nights of any kind.

What’s your favorite plant-your-patooty show? Be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you’re selected as my ever-so-lucky winner. Extra drawing points (and brownie points…ooh! Brownies are great for autumn!) if you sign up for my (very occasional, I promise) newsletter, follow my blog, stalk me on Twitter, or like my FB page.

Hop onward, little bunnies! Here’s the link:  hop, hop, hop

This is a Blog Hop, so show some love!




  1. I love the Walking Dead and Reign, but I must say that recently, my husband got me addicted to Breaking Bad.

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Ooh, I’ve been wanting to check Breaking Bad out…so little time! And I’m with you on Reign – it’s awesome.

  2. I’m with you on the couch, blanket, fire and good book (or good tv show), wine or nice sippy cup of Southern Comfort. Cinnamon whiskey? Give me that recipe, please.

    Happy Thanksgiving, CJ.

      Happy Turkey Day to you too, Patricia! If you want to try a good cinnamon whisky, give Sinfire a shot…yum.

  3. Jessica D says:

    I also love Reign! Such a good show. One show that my boyfriend and I watch together is Grimm. Thanks for your great giveaway! I hope I win, those are my FAVORITE candies.

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Grimm is also a fantastic choice – plus it’s filmed in Oregon, which I think is kinda cool. So glad you dropped in, Jessica!

    I love to snuggle and watch classic movies. Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Good choice – happy Friday!

  6. I kinda suck with TV at the moment because of all the writing/editing. When the rare moment of freedom pops up, I check out Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Supernatural. I’ve a list of new shows to watch, but they’re not on streaming yet.

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Hi Trish!! I feel your pain, but I do make sure to catch up regularly on Supernatural, and I’m kinda loving The Originals right now too. Happy Friday!

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Ah, yes – fireplace and cocoa. A great combo. 🙂

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks for the FB follow…I’ve never heard of Elementary. I’ll have to check it out.

  11. I don’t watch much TV anymore but I do adore Ru Paul’s Drag Race!! Just can’t help myself!

    My hot Autumn night involves hot cocoa, my snuggie and a good book! And my honey to cuddle with!


    1. CJ Burright says:

      Great combo: cocoa, snuggie, book, and honey! 🙂

  12. I am a fan of Reign and Game of Thrones
    I like these hops since i get introduced to a lot of authors i have yet to read

    1. CJ Burright says:

      I LOVE Game of Thrones, books and the show. Even have a Jon Snow poster in my work out room. Glad you stopped by, Joye!

  13. Eva Millien says:

    I love snuggling up with a good book or like you watching True Blood and Supernatural. Thanks for sharing the hop and your giveaway. Wishing everyone a wonderful and magical holiday season! evamillien at gmail dot com Facebook, Twiiter, and newsletter

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Thanks, Eva! Fine choices, if I do say so myself. 🙂

  14. Merry says:

    A cozy blanket, cuddly cat, and cup of coffee is the perfect way to warm up. I’m not so patiently awaiting the next season of Game of Thrones (winter is coming, so why must we wait for spring?), but for now I’m finding Doctor Who or Torchwood marathons a great way to spend a lazy autumn night.

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Cozying up with a cat and coffee is hard to beat. 🙂

  19. Carolyn says:

    I don’t really have regular shows, but if I’m planting myself, it’s with a romance or mystery book, and since I love to read series, I often feel like I’m watching a couple different seasons of my favorite people and their stories!

    Thanks so much for being part of the hop!

  21. I love your ways to spend your autumn nights! If I ever get to watch TV, and remember the proper night (or remember that it’s recorded), I like to snuggle up with my favorite blanket and some hot tea, coffee, or hot chocolate and watch Bones, reruns of Buffy, or Castle. I stalked you all three ways. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com

    1. CJ Burright says:

      Aww, thanks for the stalking, Michelle! I never watched Bones, but Buffy was one of my faves, back in the day. Even have some VHS tapes. 🙂

  22. My favorite is Elementary.
