I hope everyone is enjoying family, friends, feast and some fine goodies. May those who don’t celebrate this American holiday be blessed as well.
I just finished making pumpkin cookies for Thanksgiving treats.
While I was baking, I thought about my two books. Both of them have scenes of baking and holiday celebrations. (Pumpkin cookies recipe here).
Everyone may be busy with festivities, but I thought it was fitting to share this in case you get around to reading my blog.
In my debut novel, Whit’s End, the very first chapter shows the dysfunctional Whitaker family gathering for Thanksgiving. Ava, one of two main characters, is a newlywed. Her husband’s family tells her she needs to give up holidays with her own family to spend them with her new family. What? Yep, the Whitakers expect Ava to drop her own family and spend all her free time with her husband’s. If you’d like to find out how she handles it, the book is .99 cents through Thanksgiving week as an introductory offer. You can find Whit’s End, HERE.
In my short story memoir Anthology, Home Avenue, I dedicated one of the tales to cooking and baking. Who grows up in an Italian family and doesn’t learn to cook? ME. Read about how this happened. The memoir is free through Friday this week. You can find Home Avenue, HERE.
If you know anyone who might like to read books like these, Share this blog link. Get them while they’re on special.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving. If you read this after the holiday, I hope it was a lovely one.
