Mythology Workshop 2 — Here In My Cauldron:  Pick any mythological figure. The task is to craft a RECIPE. The piece needs to include various ingredients, be them mythological ingredients (ex. a dragon’s tooth) or real life ingredients. The emphasis should be on something that is actually edible or drinkable. The ingredients chosen and mixed need to represent the mythology figure that was chosen. The medium of the work is to be chosen by the artist.

I tried to do a lot of research before making any references or using any foreign language words. I’m sorry if I butchered anything. I’m a white, American woman. I have no flavor or yummy heritage and it makes me sad. Also, this kind of went off on a tangent before I could wrangle it back. Hopefully, that doesn’t make it less interesting. The recipe that I’m referencing is a simple Pickled Plum Rice Ball.

Mythology Workshop 2 – I’m going to participate, but I haven’t had time to decide how just yet.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything about myself or the wedding. Things are going okay and there’s only been a few hiccups. The biggest one is that my Man of Honor just backed out of being in the wedding due to personal problems. I’m not upset at him, because he’s having some seriously rough times right now, but now I feel like I have to start all over. I am considering asking a friend’s girl to take his place though I think my brother wins the prize and gets to be my Man of Honor (just like he wanted to begin with). I think my buddy’s girl would be happy to be in the wedding, even if she’s an alternate. Plus, she could walk out with her man and it would be adorable. I sent a message to my friend to see if he’s super serious about backing out, even if I volunteer to pay for his tux, and if he is then I’ll message my buddy’s girl and see what she says. She’s got five weeks to get a nice dress and she was wanting to do that anyway so it’s not a problem.

The flowers are all done. I’ve ordered my cake toppers. My man’s ring is in. Other than the fact that  my mother doesn’t seem too keen on sharing what’s going on, we’re just about finished. My dress is slated to be in on October 1st and that’s the day of my fitting. My mother is taking off that day to go with me and do my hair. My future mother-in-law will be off that day as well so I’ve invited her to come with us since she hasn’t seen the dress up close. We’re going to spend the day doing wedding things and, hopefully, I’ll get to take a look at what she has planned. I’m really worried that it’s going to look like a bad prom. That’s my biggest fear. Otherwise, I’m ready to get this show on the road. 🙂

Misha Burnett has made his books available in print!

Many of you have been asking for a print edition of Cannibal Hearts, and so here it is.  I have copies on the shelf at All On The Same Page Bookstore, 11052 Olive Blvd., Creve Coeur, Missouri 63141.  

All On The Same Page is locally owned and operated by Robin Tidwell, who is a self-published author and also operates a small press, Rocking Horse Publishing.

She is a wonderful contact for local self-published authors, she hosts launch parties, book signings, local author’s fairs–a tireless promoter. (Okay, so she does get tired, but she keeps going anyway.)  I really can’t say enough about the bookstore–the local and self-published section of the store is huge–seriously, most of the front half of the store.

Sure, you’re thinking, that’s fine for folks who are lucky enough to reside in the Saint Louis Metropolitan Area, but what about the legions of…

I’ve requested a prompt from this “workshop” creator and received one. Don’t know how well I’m going to do with this, but it’s worth a shot, right? I think so.

Sharing this for anyone that might want to know. I have yet to read these two books, but I think I might if I ever get my focus back. Glad to see that Mr. Burnett has finally released this.

Well, this is it.

It’s been over a year now, and Cannibal Hearts is now available for purchase.   I just have the Kindle version available now–I will have a print edition, but not right away.

I’m looking at this as a soft launch.  There are people who read this blog who have been waiting for it, so here it is.  I’m not going to try to do any major marketing until I’ve got Fauxpocalypse wrapped up and released.

Of course, if anyone out there wants to reblog or link to this, I would be grateful.  I do want to reach as many fans of the original book as possible–I’m just not going to put a lot of effort into catching new readers.

I’m listing it at $2.99, which I do think is fair.  It’s a good book, honestly.  I think anyone who liked the first one will like this…
