Love Lessons is Out, Books are Finalists, Honorables are Mentioned, and also Cake.
This is going to be one of those mish-mash posts like Neil Gaiman does only not half as amazing or epic. Sometimes I wonder if checking him out at the grocery store requires a pause for resonance. I’d totally buy it.
That book I’ve been talking about constantly for months on end is for sale. Everywhere, or nearly so. I think there’s a slight delay on ARe, but everywhere else the pre-orders are shipped, the links are live, all systems go. Because it must be done, here are the links:
In case you have had your eyes closed the last three-four months on this blog, this is what the book looks like.
There. Release. Boom. Done.
The Rainbow Awards finalists were announced today as well. Honorable Mentions went up a few days ago, but I am disorganized and didn’t get to mentioning them. Tons and tons and tons of great books. So much incredible work by Elisa as always. Thank you so much, you sainted, lovely woman.
Dirty Laundry, Family Man, and Second Hand are all as both honorable mentions and finalists. Family Man and Second Hand get to duke it out against each other (along with Lori Witt, so it’s a Tucker Springs Thunderdome). Wonderful, amazing books in both erotic romance and gay contemporary. Real winners here? Readers.
But now the important part of the blog. CAKE.
A day doesn’t go by without someone posting on my FB wall, emailing me, tweeting me, PMing me, sometimes all the above with a healthy food link, especially kale. People also have started asking me for kale recipes. I’ll do a post on that, actually, eventually. Probably.
But what I’m really jonesing for? Cake.
All the cake. Pancake (ate one this morning that had milk and almond, and now I’m all queasy-gross), brownie, but above all CAKE, layered or otherwise. Chocolate cake, vanilla cake, just cake. Vegan and gluten free cake. Cupcakes are cool, but I want cake. I refuse to go without cake.
I admit I have not looked far. I have yet to play with all the flours, and I get I’m going to need to drop $100 and get ready to waste half of it trying to learn how to cook dessert again. But I know some of you have already done this.
Tell me about your cake.
That’s it for this blog update. I’m still supposed to be talking behind the scenes but I think maybe everyone is over it. I have a cool thing about campus traditions and superstitions I will eventually post, and Viviana found a bunch of other ones, but for now let’s just sit here with release day and have cake. And kale. But not at the same time.
