In case you didn’t get the memo, I have a novel releasing in October. The story is set in the fictional town of Red River, Oklahoma in 1934. It’s a Depression Era novel.
It’s called A Cup of Dust, just so you know.
This, my friends, is a departure for me. I’m leaving the Contemporary Women’s Fiction genre and moving along to Historical. I could NOT be happier about it.
In poking around the blogs of other historical fiction writers, I found that many of them post recipes on their blogs. I thought, “That could be fun”. Then I thought, “It would be even more fun if I was a total goofball about it.”
Thus, selfies with food.
Don’t worry. It won’t be all about onions and baked beans. In fact, I won’t always blog about food. I’m planning on treating you with what the kids these days call the “life hacks” which Depression Era folks called “living” or “surviving” or “tightening the belt”. There will be music. Fashion. Weird and Wild history from the period.
It’s going to be fun. And I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
I promise, I’ll hold off on the selfies of me eating.
Or maybe not.
Stayed tuned for the first installment on Wednesday (because Monday is Memorial Day and nobody’s going to be reading my blog that day). I’ll be cooking up comfort food.
See you then!
