Free Prizes – 105 Authors – Bake, Love, Write – Cooking and Me

Free Prizes All Month – 105 Authors – Bake, Love, Write – Cooking and Me by Debra H. Goldstein

bake_love_writex2400Even the words themselves make me tremble. Cooking!?   Cookbook!!!!

There are a few things you can always count on from me:  I shoot straight, I have an emotional side but I’m not touchy-feely, and the kitchen is the last room in the house you’d ever expect to find me in.  So, how is it that my most recent published piece is related to cooking?

In fact, who would ever expect me to be telling you how to cook/bake?  And yet, here I am, one of 105 authors in a cookbook. Bake, Love, Write was the brainchild of author Lois Winston. After noticing how often authors and food go together, Lois invited writers to submit dessert recipes and their thoughts on romance and writing. Somehow, she accepted mine and 104 more  and edited them into a cookbook.

The recipes in Bake, Love, Write are special, often handed down from generation to generation. My chocolate velvet nut pie recipe has a history, too.  I stole it from a friend of my mother’s and added my own nutty twist. Easy and delicious, it epitomizes the smoothness and richness I find in relationships and good writing.

Speaking of relationships, 30+ of the Bake, Love, Write authors have joined together to sponsor a scavenger hunt giving away over 60 prizes as Halloween treats treats to our readers. Like any good scavenger hunt, from now to Halloween, you’ll race to find Halloween icons on our websites and then report your findings to the master site from which prizes will be awarded daily using rafflecopter.

To start, visit Sloan McBride’s blog at http://sloanmcbride.blogspot.com/  for a list of the prizes and authors and to download the answer sheet.  Visit the live websites shown, find the Halloween graphic and then e-mail your answer sheet to sloanmcbride@gmail.com . Remember, the more authors’ websites you visit, the more prizes you can win.

Good luck!   Good eating!

    It’s no mystery but a surprise that you and cooking/food means a personal recipe and not reservations!- congrats on the inclusion.

      I can’t tell a lie — reservations would be so much easier :); however, I love cookbooks and over the years have gathered many recipes — I’ve even tried a few.

    Brilliant idea! And congrats on the acceptance.

      Thank you for the congrats and for stopping by. Lois truly had a brilliant idea based upon the response she had when she called for submissions. Lois writes both romance and humorous mystery and is generous with her time helping other writers. The submission call for an essay on writing, an essay on romance and a recipe has been a true recipe for success.

      Yes, my blogs do post early. I prep them in advance so that they can be seen when people have a quiet moment to read them. Hope you enjoyed it.
