And here it is in black printing.

Unfortunately, this giveaway is only open to shipping addresses within the USA due to Amazon Merch shutting down their international shipping. Hopefully they will resolve this issue sooner than later! Because as of right now, even I can’t get any more of my own T-shirts!

So … would you like to win a T-shirt?

To enter all you need to do is comment below and let me know:

  1. Which character in the Oracle Series would you like to see wearing this T-shirt. 😉

Notes/Rules: OPEN TO SHIPPING ADDRESSES IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY (Again, my apologies. The T-shirts were supposed to be available internationally). Each comment will be assigned an entry number. THREE winning entries will then be selected via random number generator. One entry per person. Please make sure to fill out a valid email address in the comment form. Email addresses are not collected for any purpose other than notifying the contest winner.

If you haven’t commented on the blog before, or you comment from a different IP address, the comments are moderated. So don’t worry if you don’t see your entry right away. I will approve it, then assign it an entry number.

Oracle 3: official cover reveal and release date

September 5, 2016

RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 6, 2016

ISeeUs_eBook

Here be an oracle.

Despair all ye who seek her.

Magic will have its cake and eat it too.

Okay, well. So I was mixing metaphors. I was new to the gig.

But as far as I could tell, there were three kinds of people. Those who wanted confirmation that they’d chosen the correct path. Those who wanted to deny there was any sort of destiny at all. And those who wanted to tear it all down.

So why was it always the third type that showed up at the door to my 1975 Brave Winnebago, dragging me into their power struggles and using my past against me — when I didn’t even know what that past was?

Could I thwart the destiny that had been envisioned for me before I was born? Could I carve out a future filled with love and light with my chosen mate?

I certainly knew what I was capable of doing to survive. Beyond the past, through the present, and well into the future … I’d see us.

An excellent chocolate mousse recipe

August 17, 2016

I decided a few weeks ago that it had been far too long since I’d tried to make a great chocolate mousse (and failed miserably). Some Googling a few days ago led me to Gourmantine The Blog, and specifically, this post on the best chocolate mousse recipes.

I was intrigued by the ‘winning’ recipe by pastry chef David Lebovitz – especially because it didn’t call for the traditional heavy cream – so I grabbed a screenshot and whipped it up this afternoon.

IMG_1259

I followed the recipe as written, though the yolk really didn’t want to be ‘whisked’ into the chocolate, so I just stirred vigorously. I also might have over stiffened the whites slightly. I used sea salt.

A recipe in pictures (with commentary):

IMG_1282

I used a mixture of these three chocolates by Cacao Barry to make up the 200g. The resulting mousse was quite dark, so I could have used slightly less of the Tanzanie (75%).

 

IMG_1285

Melted chocolate mixed with the yolks.

 

IMG_1286

‘Stiff peak’ egg whites. Remember to bring your eggs to room temp before whipping. I think these might be slightly over whipped.

 

IMG_1296

I managed to get chocolate everywhere, of course and always.

 

IMG_1294

The recipe made six mousses that perfectly filled my six glass ramekins.

Beauty shot, pre-refrigeration.

 

IMG_1304

After three hours of chill time. Dense but fluffy. Creamy and rich. Almost too dark (my fault). I would suggest serving the mousse with a dollop of whipped cream or some fresh berries for balance.

I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. It’s brilliant.

Speaking of Cozy in a Cup …

August 6, 2016

We were speaking of cupcakes, weren’t we?

Recipe found here and in the Dowser Series Companion Cookbook.

Dowser Series: Cookies, Cupcakes, and other Selected Recipes, Vol. 1

August 5, 2016

I’ve finally collected together some of the recipes from the Dowser Series. So far I’ve included thirteen cupcakes, two cookies, and a brownie from books one through six.

I’ve made the cookbook available as a free PDF download while I slowly develop and test bake more recipes. I will update the PDF periodically. When it is ready, I’ll have it formatted as an ebook and a paperback.

If you sign up for my new release mailing list or my monthly newsletter you will automatically be emailed the download link twenty-four hours later.

Fun! Fun!
