Holiday Reads and Halloween Treats

Recently I heard from a few of my readers who had trouble getting my newsletter so I thought I’d share my newsletter content here on my blog so no one misses out!

It’s almost that time of the year again when cute little ghouls and ghosts come out to play and though it’s still be a couple of weeks away, son Mac and I are already busy decorating and getting into the spirit of Halloween!


Later today Mac and I will be in the kitchen stirring up some easy ‘no-trick’ Halloween treats, but before I get back to my little ghoul, I wanted to remind you of another Holiday treat that’s still available to you at a great price.

Tule Publishing’s new Christmas Boxed Set, A Montana Born Christmas, featuring a set of eight heartwarming stories from some of today’s best New York Times, USA Today and international bestselling authors is now available to download for just $0.99! It includes my first Sheenan Christmas story, Christmas at Copper Mountain, along with seven other reader favorites from Tule authors. But you must take advantage of this special deal by the 27th of October as the price will climb just after that date to $2.99 so grab it now! It would make a great ‘treat’ for friends and family too so feel free to gift it someone!



A Montana Born Christmas is available at major e-retailers so be sure to treat your own kindle and buy it today! This special price will be gone in just one week!

Before I sign off I also want to share this fun Halloween recipe Mac and I will be trying out today. I hope you enjoy!

MacsMummyPopsMac’s No Trick Mummy Pops


  • 8 straws or lollipop sticks
  • 11 oz. chocolate, melted
  • 8 Nutter Butters, opened
  • 1 cup buttercream frosting
  • Mini M&Ms, for decorating


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly dip straws or lollipop sticks into chocolate before topping on open Nutter Butter. Press cookie back together, then dip into melted chocolate until completely coated. (Allow excess chocolate to drip back into pan.)
  2. Place dipped cookie onto prepared baking sheet to set, about 25 minutes (to speed up the process, transfer pops to the refrigerator for 10 minutes).
  3. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a straight flat tip with buttercream and pipe from side to side. Lightly cover backside of eyes with frosting and press onto cookie pop. Set aside at least 1 hour to fully set.
  4. Enjoy!
