So, I’ve mentioned the Tales of the Curious Cookbook project that I’m working on with authors R.J. Scott, Mary Calmes, Marie Sexton, and Amber Kell, and I’m so excited to announce that R.J.’s novella and my own are up for pre-sale on the Dreamspinner page!
Here’s the blurb for my own– Food for Thought:
A Tale of the Curious Cookbook
Emmett Gant was planning to tell his father something really important one Sunday morning—but his father passed away first. Now, nearly three years later, Emmett can’t seem to clear up who he should be with—the girl with the apple cheeks and the awesome family, or his snarky neighbor, Keegan, who never sees his family but who makes Emmett really happy just by coming over to chat.
Emmett needs clarity.
Fortunately for Emmett, his best friend’s mom has a cookbook that promises to give Emmett insight and good food, and Emmett is intrigued. After the cookbook follows him home, Emmett and Keegan decide to make the recipe “For Clarity,” and what ensues is both very clear—and a little surprising, especially to Emmett’s girlfriend. Emmett is going to have to think hard about his past and the really important thing he forgot to tell his father if he wants to get the recipe for love just right.
Come by and check out Food for Thought and For a Rainy Afternoon—and don’t forget to look for the other tales as well!
Of course, it will be up in *Kermit Flail*, and there will be a paperback out with all of the stories after they’ve all been released, so, you know, fun stuff ahead!
Also, as a favor to a couple of friends, I wrote a very teeny tiny short called The Fenestra Penetration that will be going into Foolish Encounters, the new anthology from Wilde City.
It’s a very small piece, but there are some lovely authors in the anthology itself, and that’s always fun.
So there you go– day two of my “short blog” experiment! Let’s see how it goes!
