Giveaway times two and why my incubu and succubus aren't demons

As anyone who reads this blog has probably noticed, this isn't a blog but a bulletin board. These days authors are encouraged to blog, but I don't think I have it in me. If I have to choose between writing stories or blogs, stories will always win out. But I do enjoy guest blogs! I'm a guest at Ella Quinn's blog to talk about my November 1 novella, Under a Christmas Spell, which is not only a Regency spy story, but stars an incubus and succubus who aren't demons. I'm giving away an e-copy of Under a Christmas Spell and a paperback of A Scandalous Regency Christmas, which contains 5 stories, one of which I wrote.

Do come and join us!

Indian Mounds and Giveaway at Beth Trissel's blog today

The title of this blog says it all. For a chance to win a copy of Heart of Constantine, go to Beth Trissel's blog, where I posted pics of my visit to the Cahokia Mounds in Illinois. I've visited many of these mounds during the years I've lived in the south, and I couldn't resist putting one in a book -- and then leaving a drugged, unconscious woman on top of it for Constantine to find.

Snapper soup

It's hard to get people in my house to eat leftover fish, so I made a soup. The same two people who might have eaten the fish ate the soup, but I have to say it was pretty good for a thrown-together meal.

Ingredients: Baked red snapper (bones removed), butter, (actually, it was ghee), chopped onions, chopped celery, chopped carrots, chopped parsley, lemon juice, salt, black paper, ancho chili pepper (ground), 2 bay leaves... I think that's it. I sauteed the onions and celery in the butter, added the carrots and snapper and stirred them around a bit, added water and the seasonings, and cooked until done. Good with bread and butter and more lemon or lime juice.

Just a quick post to say that I'm highlighting the amazing Ella Quinn today at the Pink Fuzzy Slipper Writers with her new release, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe. Drop by for a chance to win a copy! (I'm reading it now -- what a lively story!) It's the first in her series, The Marriage Game, so there are more great reads to come.

Also, my Goodreads giveaway for Heart of Constantine is over. Thank you to everyone who entered. I'll get the books out to the winners ASAP.
