HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELANA JOHNSON!!!
If you don't know Elana Johnson, you should. She is the author of Possession, Surrender, and the upcoming Abandon (Simon Pulse, June 4 2013). She also has one of the best blogs ever!
Next, my cousin's wife, Angela Felsted, has a book coming out! It is called Chaste, and here is the blurb:
When he steps into his physics class on the first day of senior year, Quinn Walker is too exhausted from staying up all night with his three-month-old nephew to deal with moral dilemmas. As a devout Mormon who has vowed to wait until marriage for sex, the last thing he needs is a very hot and very sexy Katarina Jackson as his physics partner. Regrettably, he has no choice.
Kat feels invisible in her mansion of a home six months after losing her older brother in a fatal car crash and will do anything to get her parents’ attention. Since her pastor father has no love for Quinn’s “fake” religion and her ex-boyfriend refuses to leave her alone, she makes an impulsive bet with her friends to seduce her holier-than-thou lab partner by Christmas.
Now, Quinn Walker is not your average boy. He makes cookies. (Side note: my husband makes the best chocolate chip cookies EVER!) So to celebrate the release of Chaste, I am putting my husband's famous cookie recipe on here for you.
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups Guittard or Ghirardelli semi sweet chocolate chips
- Soften butter in microwave, and then stir it all by hand. That's the secret. ROLL into balls and bake at 375 f for 9 min.
- Third thing, in honor of these two amazing ladies, I am giving away a signed copy of my book, SHIFTING. All you have to do is leave a comment and you are entered. So, leave a comment, and happy baking/reading/eating!
YAY! Congrats on the book coming out and so many wonderful Happy Birthday wishes to Elana :-)

Congrats Angela on getting your book published!! it looks really good :). Happy B-Day to Elena Johnson. hope you have a wonderful birthday :). And Happy holidays :)
Its been a while, just stopped in to say hi, hello and to wish you a fabulous week.
Happy Birthday (again) to Elana. It looked like she had some smashing breakfast today. :)
Bethany, I forgot Angela was your cousin. She is a wonderful writer!
I too just wanted to stop by and say hi.
BTW, if anyone is interested, my avatar is the cover of my debut adult fantasy/erotica novel entitled "Line 21".
Oh, interesting. There are two chocolate chips recipes in a row, but I can spot the chemistry differences already with melting the butter. I will have to try them side by side!
And definitely interested in your book, too.
I've already got a copy of SHIFTING, so I don't need to be entered in the contest. I just wanted to say that I'm super excited you have a new book coming out. It sounds like a good one :)
Nice tutorial and very informative and helpful post for all of the designers.
