Thanksgiving Plans

Happy Thanksgiving from the Galenorn Family

Here's wishing you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving season. We always host Thanksgiving for friends, and we will be somewhere between 6 and 10 at the table this year. Everybody comes early and I put them to work.

Since I am one of those people who loves to decorate for the season early, the week before Andria and I will be putting up the decorations for the Solstice/Yule, and the house will sparkle. I do love this time of year and try to pace myself so I can enjoy it rather than get stressed out. I wish the same for you--peace of mind, joy in the heart, and friends and comfort. At the end of the newsletter, I've included my cranberry-raspberry sauce recipe for you!


Fury's Mantle Cover

FURY'S MANTLE--Fury Unbound Series, Book 5


In the wake of the second World Shift, Tam and I have spent eight years building UnderBarrow and Willow Wood into a thriving community. We’ve created an oasis of civilization, a safe haven in the vast sea of chaos left after Seattle fell. But as we settle into our new life, a terrifying danger is rising...

Travelers through our territory are being attacked, viciously savaged and taken for food. There are no survivors and no witnesses, but rumors begin to circulate. One of the old gods has returned with a taste for blood. When the Frostlings report that lycanthropes are gathering under a strange banner, we know we’re in trouble. Whoever is at their helm is proving a ruthless, deadly enemy. As the attacks close in on Willow Wood, Hecate warns me that if we can’t stop them, all we’ve worked so hard to build will be destroyed.

In the middle of the chaos, the Wild Hunt is approached by Raven, one of the Ante-Fae. A bone-witch, Raven hires them to find her missing fiancé. The spirits have warned her that he’s in danger.

The Wild Hunt follows a trail of blood and bones, it leads them into a labyrinth of grisly deaths that extend far beyond Raven’s lost love. A serial killer is murdering Dark Fae, hoping to win favor with one of the gods. But as Ember and Herne draw close to solving the case, yet another bombshell drops. And this time, the fallout could lead to outright war between the Fae Courts and an ancient enemy.

Reading Order of Series:

1. The Silver Stag
2. Oak & Thorns
3. Iron Bones
4. A Shadow of Crows



3 12-oz bags frozen unsweetened cranberries
1 12-oz bag frozen raspberries, unsweetened
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup sugar (to taste)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves

Rinse cranberries and discard any that look bad. Pour into large soup pan. Add raspberries and water, and--if you are using it--lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until cranberries pop. Watch carefully--they can foam all over and then you have a mess. When cranberries are done and liquid has reduced, stir in sugar, and spices if you're using them. Turn to low heat and simmer for another 10-15 minutes, stirring as needed.

I can't have the lemon, or cinnamon or cloves anymore, but they are WONDERFUL additions to this recipe.

Till Next Time, Bright Blessings
