Just two days away from the Whiskey Creek Press Torrid release of the CHRISTMAS CANDY ANTHOLOGY. It is a great book, packed with sizzling stories that are sure to make anyone's holiday bright!

Great news! I've been keeping this to myself for the past few weeks, just savoring the wonderful feeling a bit before sharing it with anyone, but here it is, the day after Thanksgiving, and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside and want to share. So here it is...

My second title with Liquid Silver Books, Summersong, has been accepted for publication! I don't have any idea when it'll be released, I haven't even begun edits on it yet but I'm so thrilled about this!

I loved writing this book, loved every moment of watching the character evolve. I'm hoping that readers enjoy it, too.

I'll keep you posted on developments as they happen. :-)

Thanksgiving Corn Bread


3/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Baking soda
2 cups Stone-ground Cornmeal
2 cups milk
2 eggs


Preheat oven to 450°

Place cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl and whisk.

In a separate bowl, combine eggs and milk then add wet mix to dry and stir well.

Use butter to grease a square baking pan. Pour batter in pan and cook for 25-30 minutes. Serve warm.

Really easy, really good.

Yesterday was the first time I posted to the SEx - Silver Expressions. It's the Liquid Silver Books blog and can be found at

I had a blast, loved being a part of the whole group blog and loved getting feedback from readers. When you write it's most often a solitary activity. The feedback from readers is so special in that it reminds the writer that her words are being shared, her written worlds and experiences are being enjoyed by others. It's a great feeling.

Me? I can't wait until it's my turn to play at SEx again. :-)

Hi all, The Liquid Silver Books November newsletter came out a few days ago, and it features one of my Granny's recipes in it -- her Thanksgiving cornbread. It's tasty and quick to prepare, so if you haven't seen it yet you just might want to head on over to the LSB site, sign on for the newsletter and take a peek! There are loads of other interesting bits and pieces in the newsletter, too, about some of the super writers at Liquid Silver. So go on over, take a look...what have you got to lose? And while you're there, be sure to pick up a copy of Miami Honey--if you haven't already done that. :-) Until next time...Rusty
