Quick Update on Taste
I’ve heard from a few of you who are confused that they can’t find A Taste of You in some retailers.
Don’t Panic! The quick answer is that it is being re-published and should be back up most places by February 1st.
As of now, A Taste of You
is still on Amazon, and that should be the last place it will disappear. (Update: Most of the new bookseller links are active. click here for where to buy. ). The only place I know of where it will disappear indefinitely is Google Play. (They aren’t accepting any new authors right now. If you want to lobby them about this, be my guest but…Google.)
The longer story.
My publisher has decided to close their doors. This means I am having my rights reverted long before the end of my contract. I have enjoyed working with Fated Desires very much and they are making the transition as easy as possible. When A Taste of You goes back online it will be virtually unchanged. Even the cover will have very minor modifications.
That being said…
You may receive email from Amazon and other vendors about a “New Release” when the 2nd edition goes up. It will be the SAME BOOK. I’m not adding any content or anything, so there is absolutely no need for you to re-purchase if you have the original A Taste of You.
Quickie newsflash – A Taste Of You is only $0.99 on all retailers.
This is a limited time sale, so take advantage!

So, last week I promised you cream puffs, and I am here to deliver. Cream puffs sound fancy, but they are actually really easy to make. As always, if I can do it, you can do it.
These are a little bit of an experiment. I wanted to make you something from A Taste of You. In the book, Grace’s cream puffs are flavored with blood lime and cardamom. Now, I’ll be honest, I’m a bit of a cream puff purist. I don’t really go for flavors. I like a basic pâte à choux filled with sweetened whipped cream. Also, I totally made that shit up in the book – so no recipe. (In case you didn’t know, novel writers are just people who lie for a living.).
Anyway, let’s get started.
For the choux dough you’ll need:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
4 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup flour
You can also make this with just water instead of water and milk and you can add a little sugar if you want a sweeter pastry.
Combine the water, milk, butter and salt in a saucepan and heat until it reaches a full boil. Dump the flour in all at once and stir vigorously until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan. Don’t worry about recognizing when this happens. It is very obvious. Keep cooking for about another minute so any excess liquid can evaporate. Continue reading
