November Kisses

Winter is a busy time for me. It is the time I’m most creative, and as such, I tend to work harder on my writing. This year I’m a bit far from home and won’t get to share the holidays with family, but I will be sure to share a few of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes with all my cyber friends/family.

                A few posts to get excited about this month will be from two authors who are working hard at bringing everyone fantastic stories of love, thrills, and the supernatural, but more about that later!

                Another note of interest is one of my publisher’s—Decadent Publishing—is opening a new site for ‘sweet romance’ and YA. If you have a novel you’ve been dying to submit, then get over there and send them your query, they are a fun bunch of good peoples to work with.

                Here’s a little something to enjoy until the next post:

Pumpkin Pie Martini Recipe (One of my favorite November cocktails!):

First make the mixture you will coat the rim of your martini glass with: graham crackers, cinnamon, and brown sugar—put in a food processor and grind it to a fine mix. Use a lemon to ring the glass then dip your glass in the mixture, set aside.

In a shaker with ice add:

1 ½ ounce goldschlager

½ ounce bailey’s irish cream

½ ounce coffee liqueur

½ ounce half and half cream

Shake and strain into martini glass, add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg and serve—yummy!

And, a nice poem to read to your lover, friend, or family:

The True Gem

In the waters of time we find peace

In the weathering of the sky we find contemplation

In the landscape of the earth we find new roads

In the by-ways of the mind we find new journeys

But, in the complexity of the heart we find the true jewel, love.
