Too many books?

LOL! Words to live by.

Feetloaf?!?

So I’ve been pondering this since Halloween. Apparently “feetloaf” is a thing, and I’m still ambivalent about it. On the one hand, I totally admire the holiday-themed creativity. (And those celery toenails are, admittedly, kinda cool.) On the other hand, I’m . . . squeamish, I guess.

What about you? Would you have a nice juicy slice?

“One of the most exciting new historical writers”

If you’ve been hanging out with me for any length of time, you know that I’m a huge Julia Quinn fan, and that her books have been a major, major inspiration to me. So you can imagine how I felt when she posted this on her Facebook page yesterday:

Yep! Incredibly happy, honored, proud, and grateful.

“For maximum deliciousness”

This intrigues me.

Says Business Insider:

If you love the smell of a Quarter Pounder burger, then this candle pack is ideal for recreating the fragrance of McDonald’s within the comfort of your own home.

The six-piece candle set includes the Quarter Pounder ingredient-inspired scents of ketchup, pickle, cheese, onion, bun, and 100% fresh beef. 

You can light the candles individually, but the product description recommends burning them all at once “for maximum deliciousness.”

What do you think? Would you have these in your house? I might be tempted to go for a french fry scented candle. :)

Gratitude

With Engaged to the Earl newly launched into the world as of yesterday — huzzah! — I want to extend A TON of gratitude out into the world, too. AlthoughEngaged to the Earl writing a book tends to be a fairly solitary experience, putting it together in finished form is a highly collaborative process. I had a lot of help and support along the way.

So, here’s a little peek into the first pages of Engaged to the Earl:
