Fan Mail Friday

So how many other writers have been immortalized in CAKE?! Am I the most fortunate author in the world or what?!

Stephanie's Wish You Were Eyre Cake

This is lovely Stephanie’s WISH YOU WERE EYRE cake that she dreamed up for her middle school’s “Bake A Book” activity.

Cool, huh?

I absolutely adore everything about this confection — the Eiffel Tower, the dresses, the pastel-colored macarons dancing around the edge – it’s pure genius!

THANK YOU for sending me these pictures, Stephanie!

I love your creativity and am honored you chose my book to “bake”!  🙂

Saturday Story Starter

Look where I was earlier this week!

Kimball Farm ice cream 2016

Seriously the best ice cream ever.

So this month’s story starter is simple:  write about ice cream!  Your favorite flavor, your favorite place to buy it (or maybe you prefer to make it?), your favorite time of year to eat it, your favorite ice cream memory — or perhaps something entirely different, but it has to involve ice cream in some way…

(And in case you’re wondering, the flavor in my cup is Coffee Turtle  — mmmmmmmmmmm!)

Ready, set, WRITE!

For those of you who haven’t participated before, Saturday Story Starter is purely for fun, just a way to exercise those writing muscles (think of it as Heather’s Literary Gym). There are no prizes, only the simple joy of putting words on paper (well, OK, on the computer screen). Also, I won’t be offering critiques, just brief words of encouragement, but I will read all your entries, that I can promise!
