Things have been rather hectic lately and I've had to really limit my online time to focus on writing and edits. An Ocean Apart--the new name for my Summerside historical--and macro edits for Blood Covenant, book two in my Mission Hope series with Zondervan are both due by the end of the month. And of course, there is still school and ministry and everything else that comes up.
So for a crazy month, I thought I'd host a crazy, somewhat jiggly contest.
Jiggly, you say? Oh yes.
I've mentioned how much fun I've had researching the 1920s on both sides of the Atlantic, and since one of the things I enjoy is cooking, I thought I'd add a recipe to the back of the book. But I need your help!
Salads back in the early 1900 had always been a bit...messy. The solution? Pour your fruits, canned and cooked vegetables and even meats into gelatin. This brought about things like jellied tomato and pimiento salad, sardines in aspic, fruited Jello-salads, and jellied anchovy moulds.
Yum, I know.
But be honest. How many of you still love Jello? Okay, maybe not with pimientos and sardines, but the yummy fruit and whipped cream kind. My favorite growing up was lime Jello with pineapple with and shredded cheddar cheese. (Yes, really.)
Here's what I need from you. All you have to do is leave a comment below and include your favorite gelatin recipe. (One that doesn't include meat and fish products!) Not only will one of you win, but the rest of us will have some summertime recipes to choose from! The winner will have their recipe included in the back of the book with an acknowledgement and will recieve a complimentary copy of the book once its released in February!
So let me hear from you!!
On another note, here are a couple places to connect with me on line.
I'll be chatting on the radio with John Gaessler who is with Solace Wealth Management today (Friday the 11th) at 10:00 AM central time here about Blood Ransom and life in Africa. This link goes to John's show page and you can call in and talk 1-347-855-8163. The show will be saved on John's home page about one hour after we end the show.
One of the things that I've been challenged by recently in writing An Ocean Apart is the spiritual theme which revolves around finding our identity in Christ. I'll be writing a post on this soon, but in the meantime, I'm a guest blogger on my agent's blog today where I talk about this topic. You can read the post here.
