Happy National Homemade Bread Day!

Yep, that’s a thing, and I didn’t know it until today. This reminds me of the days back in high school, when my dad fell in love with homemade bread. For about a year I made bread every single day, a recipe that I had learned from my grandmother, and by the next day without fail there was not a single crumb left.

I haven’t made bread in years, but a few days ago I made a delicious batch of cheesy snacks, which in Romania are called “sărățele”. These are made with cheese, butter, eggs and flour. You can sprinkle all sorts of things on top of them, like poppy seeds, grated cheese, sesame seeds, or whatever you like. Find the recipe here.

And because nothing goes better with a snack than a good book, I would like to present to you my new covers. The trend for rom-com covers leans heavily on illustrations right now, so I decided to give my covers a facelift. What do you think?

Today and tomorrow, Celebrity is at 99 cents, so if you haven’t given it a try already, now is the time!

And for all the binge-readers out there who love to read rom-com after rom-com, laugh, dream, and forget about the news for a while, I put together a box set with my entire Lovestruck series.

I hope you have a great rest of the week, and I wish you an early Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Every day is National Homemade Bread Day for me! I love baking almost as much as I love fresh bread. And these bread sticks look as scrumptious as your new covers! I will definitely try them.

    And yes, while we might not like the adage “Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover,” we know people do. Heck, I know better, and yet, I know I still raise a discerning eyebrow.

    To me, first and foremost, a cover has to show the genre and be appealing. That’s the juicy tidbit on the end of a hook for me. Then, if the author’s description is good, I find myself on the line to read a bit more. I don’t usually read the reviews — I loathe spoilers — but I often peek with one eye. Typically, a good price and a decent rating will reel me right in…even though I have hundreds of books in my TBR pile!

    • It sounds like you’re the perfect reader, Carmen, as well as an amazing writer!
      Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m glad you like the new covers. I agonized over them for months!
