Welcome aboard!

Happy Winter Solstice!

I’m so glad you’re here. This is my new blog. And I want to welcome you with all my heart. At Winter Solstice, we face the longest night of winter dark, but the promise of ever-strengthening light arrives with the rising sun. For that reason, the shimmer of hope and brightness, I think launching now is a good time.

Also because I love winter, but that’s a topic for another day.

For now, I’ll just say that I wanted a place to share my thoughts and interests. Obviously, that includes my books. If you’re a reader, long-time or new, I hope you’ll enjoy having somewhere to hear about new releases, sales, and other exciting happenings.

If you’re not a reader, that’s fine, too. Perhaps you’re a fellow animal-and-nature lover. (extra-points for cat lovers) Maybe you share my fascination with history? Or the paranormal? Who doesn’t enjoy a good ghost story? Or the possibilities of time-slips and whatnot? I’m sure many of you love Scotland and Highlanders. Vikings, and Regency rakes. London, anyone?

And then there’s…

Books, reading, and writing. The writing life with all its rollercoaster highs and lows. And because this is my blog, whimsy and magic. The little things that crop up and deserve a blether.

If you followed my old blog, Tartan Ink, I’ll admit I’m recalling the good times enjoyed there. It’s been years since then, but the fond memories remain. Here, as in Tartan Ink’s infamous Tea Room, the only taboo topics will be politics and religion.

Likewise mirroring Tartan Ink, I hope to do author interviews and share reviews of books I enjoy. There might be an occasional rant. Some little thing that irks me. But even then, you won’t find any profanity. Just a grumble or two.

Unlike Tartan Ink, I won’t be doing daily posts. Instead, I’ll post when I have something to say and/or book news to share.

The blog’s name is a nod to my stewardess years. Back then, the phrase Coffee, Tea, or Me was a thing. Nowadays, I still love coffee and tea. I still brew and serve both, though in my home, not at 37,000 feet. And books? Well, they were a constant in my life then, paperback romance novels always tucked in my crew luggage. Books remain a great love.

So when I needed a blog name, Coffee, Tea, or Books seemed appropriate.

I’ll leave you now. Thanks again for being here. I hope you’ll become a regular visitor.

Till next time…

Happy Yule!
