Released December 17, 2014: Cooking Up Stories: Favorite Recipes from the Oregon Writers Network

Cooking Up Stories

Writers live in a strange world — they tend to sit at their computers and make things up all day. Often, especially during the moments when writing in “the zone,” life outside the story ceases to exist.
But even writers have to eat. Since I often feed my fellow wordsmiths, I contributed my potluck recipe for Hot and Zesty Vegetable Stew, robust enough to please the carnivorous, but safely enjoyed by those who prefer other dining genres.
From Procrastinator’s Bread to Deadline Chicken — come along for an inside look at some of the top recipes that help keep writers writing!*
Everyone who worked on this cookbook, including Lucky Bat Books staff, donated their time, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Beach Bark, an organization of animal lovers who work with the Central Coast Humane Society for the benefit of animals in north Lincoln County, Oregon.
* Includes story excerpts and writerly musing
