Donuts and Darkness and Blogs. Oh, My!

Did you know I posted about baked apple donuts at Fatal Foodies today?

Did you know I’ve been given a One Lovely Blog Award by N. R. Williams?

Did you know I’m part of the Fall Fiction Frenzy at Dark Valentine Magazine? My story is a dark fantasy called “The Edge of the End”. Not sure which day in October it will appear, but read them all!

So now you know.

WRITING PROMPT: A character finds a recipe on the internet and tries it out. How does that go?

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’m thinking of hiding some paper inside, like fortune cookies. (I’m sorry my book link in the previous message didn’t work. I’ve fixed it now)

    Yuck, Marian, I thought I’ve fixed the link. Apparently not. Here it is again.

    Mrs. Charlotte Collins downloaded the cupcakes recipe from She put a small piece of paper with the words “You will die!” inside the cake mixture. With a brilliant smile, she…
