To celebrate my second favorite holiday of all time, Festivus, I will be releasing “One Night with B.B.” in the next few days. I am working on formatting issues. Not all ebook formats accept embedded audio files, so I solved it by offering a link for a free download to all who purchase it.
Those who purchase the book for Festivus will be scratched off my list for the Airing of Grievances.
I started researching another cookbook project on the culinary influences of the Taino Indians. There are two projects in the hopper right now. The upcoming one is the Family Tree cookbook. Following that, there’s Cocina Latina, a collection of Latin American ingredients and recipes.
Family Tree requires editing and will probably come out sometime in January or in time for Valentine’s Day. Cocina Latina is on the research stage and I still need to test some of the recipes (I love my trade!). This title will probably be ready in spring 2012. The Taino cookbook is on its early research stages and will probably go online in the summer.
The steampunk series that I rewrote for NaNoWriMo is still going strong. Right now I am adding a pivotal character scene for the heroine that is a little painful to write. After that is done, I have a new book I got for my birthday: Horrible Histories: Cruel Kings and Mean Queens by Terry Deary. It is quite an awesome resource to do research for the royalty and their excessive little lifestyles… Plus, it looks like a fun read.
