The Look of an Author

Do I look like an author? I'm sitting in a leather chair with books behind me. Even if it is only 6 words, they are more than 6 words I ever would have expected to be published in a book. Any of my words actually as I'm not a writer, I don't strive to write, and no one has ever said that should be my life's ambition. What are the 6 words? They are on page 47. You'll have to buy the book, which I just received from the publisher yesterday. The book is Six-Word Memoirs and on the Amazon link there is a cute video which goes with the book. I'm pretty happily smug with myself.

So the book tally is this: I have a jewelry project in a book that was published 2 years ago, I almost had 4 projects in another book then I didn't, I have 6 words in a book, and I will have one of my jewelry pieces featured in a book coming out this summer--for that I will keep you posted.

What else is new? I usually don't bake, but my father in law loves bread pudding and it's all he talks about these days. He orders it at every restaurant we go to whether they have it or not. So, Superbowl Sunday I made it because I knew he was coming over. I got the recipe from Epicurious.com and it was written by Maya Angelou. He is not a sweets person really so now I know why he likes a basic bread pudding--because it's not really sweet. To tell you the truth, I think it smelled better than it tasted because it has a whopping 2 Tablespoons of vanilla.

Yesterday I got my March issue of Bon Appetit magazine and there is a recipe for Dulce de leche and chocolate chunk bread pudding. Now that is more my speed, but my father in law wouldn't touch it. I may have to try that ooey gooey and chocolatey goodness sometime.
