There will be recipe or gardening tips, plus more than 60 giveaways over the next ten days, and if you visit every author in the hop in that time, you're eligible for the grand prize, which is a Nook or a Kindle! (Your choice)
For me, how about a recipe? How about chocolate cake and strawberry icing?
Okay, cake first: (and they weren't kidding when they called it rich. It is amazing, but if you only like angel food type cakes, it is not for you.)
- Cream butter and cream cheese for about 2 minutes.
- Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Add in jam and slowly add pureed strawberry until you get the desired consistency.
- Chill before frosting
Okay, now that that's over...how about a giveaway? My newest release, Direct Contact is a dystopian romance. Here's the blurb!
Julie Gladwell has a secret. Acting as chief attendant for the New Government’s procreation program, she rears girls to carry the emperor’s heir. Only a few are chosen for the program, called “The Special Ones,” and they are given no names, only numbers. They see no one but authorized personnel until their twenty-first birthday. Which is usually when they die. Direct contact is forbidden. As she cares for these girls, no one ever suspects who she actually is.
Scientist Malcolm Odin hated his job and hated himself. Put in charge of the entire human engineering program, the experiments and suffering he witnessed made him sick. Still, it paid the bills and kept him living comfortably in Terrecina. He knew of far too many who’d fallen through the cracks, living on the earth below. The Level People, they were called.
When he confides his unease to Julie, she lets him in on her secret and into her heart. What starts as fancy ends in revolution, but how will they choose between their fellow man and each other?
