I’m giving away three Guess What Chicken Butt T-shirts (which Kandy wears in Oracle 2) today! This is the first of three blog giveaways to help celebrate the release of Oracle 3 on October 6, 2016.
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:
- 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.
Contest closes TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2016 at 8 p.m. PDT.

You can find all three Dowser/Oracle T-shirts here. PS. They fit small. Seriously small. I know I keep repeating myself, but please, please trust me! I wear a MEDIUM Banana Republic T-shirt and an EXTRA LARGE in these.

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.
PREORDER NOW AVAILABLE
For extra fun, I’m doing a series of recipe card giveaways on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I’m also doing tag a friend paperback giveaway on Facebook (you maybe need to scroll down my feed to find it, closes August 31,2016).
FYI – September and October will be filled with Oracle Series giveaways and promos. I’ll put up a schedule just as soon as the preorder for Oracle 3 is live.

SHARES AND LIKES ARE WELCOMED AND APPRECIATED.
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.
A recipe in pictures (with commentary):
I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. It’s brilliant.
We were speaking of cupcakes, weren’t we?
Recipe found here and in the Dowser Series Companion Cookbook.
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.
