LET’S GET COOKING!
In just a few days, Feeding The Muse: Recipes For Authors, Recipes By Authors will launch, and I’m mad-squirrelly with excitement. It’s been a long road and a strange one, but the result is incredible: a collection of recipes from nine different authors, each with their own voice and opinion, techniques and priorities. Allen L Wold talks about the role family and travel have had in developing his recipes. Jonah Knight offers tips on managing a healthy breakfast in a hurry. Steven Savage lines up tidy step by step instructions. Then there’s the more “eh, about yay” approach from Leona R Wisoker and Edward Morris. Gail Martin offers up a recipe that would fit just fine into her Deadly Curiosities series. Elektra Hammond’s entry showcases her usual precision and passion. Danny Birt’s recipes are … well, they’re very Danny Birt, is all we can say, and we love them all. Malcolm Gin rounds out the collection with a taste of Hapa Home Cooking.
The recipes range from vegan to completely omnivorous, from simple to complex, from comfort food to something you can throw together in a hotel while at a convention (without stinking out your roomates, even!). Feeding The Muse is only going to be available in ebook form, through Smashwords, at this time. You can preorder here.
NOTE: you do need to set up a Smashwords account. It’s well worth the time and trouble, though, as it opens up access to so many other great books!
Official release date is July 31. The price is currently set at $1.99; we have no plans to change that for at least a month, but it may go up slightly in October. So grab your copy now, and get ready to enjoy the eclectic kitchen wisdom of the Nine Writers!
