FULL HUNTER’S MOON (HARVEST MOON) – OCTOBER

FULL HUNTER’S MOON – OCTOBER – This year the Harvest Moon actually was in September because that’s when it was the closest to Autumn Equinox.  Therefore, October’s full moon is called the Hunter’s Moon this year!  When October’s Full Moon follows a September Harvest Moon, it is also called the Blood Moon or Sanguine Moon. 

The Full Hunter’s Moon gets it’s name from the Native American Indians.  Fields of grain have been reaped and deer & foxes come out at night to eat the leftover fallen grain to fatten up for the coming winter.  When the Full Hunter’s Moon rises, the moon light shines through the bare tree branches & hunter’s can easily see the animals coming out of the forest.  Native Americans hunted during this full moon to store up meat to see them through the long winter.  Western Europe and many Native American tribes celebrate the Full Hunter’s Moon as an important feast day.     

HOW WRITING A REVIEW OF MY BOOK MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Did you write a review on Amazon when you purchased “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” and/or “Shelly Cat By the Sea: Adventures at the Beach”?
If you didn’t and you could take a few minutes to go back and write a review, it makes a huge difference to the selling and promotion of my books. Here’s why: “The best way to influence the success of your own book directly is to get Amazon reviews. This is no easy task, but fifty reviews is a goal you can set for yourself. Fifty Amazon reviews will bump you up into a new bracket of visibility on Amazon, based on the algorithms they have set up, which make Amazon the powerful recommendation engine it is.” Your support is much appreciated! 
Please Note:  You must have purchased your book from Amazon for them to accept your review.
