Book Launch, Contest and, of course, Food

I’m launching my Blog Book Tour for EEL’S REVERENCE today at Fatal Foodies on the subject of food as characterization. Please drop by and enter the contest, there or here.

WRITING PROMPT: Do you ever “peg” people based on food? If I tell you I saw a woman eating watermelon with a knife and fork, would you get an instant picture of her? Does “tofu” conjure up a stereotype that would be fun to play with or against?


I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I love your writing, Marian, and your writing prompts. I’m going to have to read Eel’s Reverence, now. I enjoyed your discussion, on Fatal Foodies, of how scenes involving food reveal character.

    I saw your contest on KindleKorner and thought I would enter. the book EEL’S REVERENCE sounds intriguing.
    Yes, eating some foods does conjure up images of people and their situations.

    If someone tells me they eat Tofurkey on Thanksgiving, I definitely form judgments, it’s true! 🙂
