Name the Cupcake Contest!


Another release from the Mystery Lover's Kitchen:
Krista's The Diva Paints the Town
is OUT!!! Woo hoo. I can't wait to read it.

And now:

Liar, liar pants on fire!



So, here's what I said to earn my portion

of our Creative Writer Blog Award from Lesa:


1. My genealogy has been traced back to the 1400's
and I had relatives that came over on the Mayflower.

False! Hub made that one up -- pretty good, yes?


2. At six feet tall, I played basketball all through school

and was recruited by several Universities but blew my

knee out in my senior year.


False! I'm six feet tall but a terrible ballplayer, although I love

the game I'm not very good at it.


3. My favorite mode of transportation is my Sector 9

mini-longboard (a skateboard).


True! The dudes and I take our boards out almost

every day. I am happiest when I am sidewalk surfing.


And now we roll into Shameless Self-Promotion!

I am taking a week off from posting recipes to

announce a contest to promote the release

of SPRINKLE WITH MURDER on March 2!

I made for a birthday party.
Cute, yes?

  1. I love the mouse cupcakes, Jenn! They're so cute. And, as shameless Jenn promotion, I booked you for Sat. May 8 for Authors @ The Teague at 2 PM. I didn't know if you received my confirmation email since your email doesn't like me (grin).

    And, I certainly guessed wrong on the truth in your statements! Thanks for playing along.

  2. Good red herrings, Jenn! Loved the basketball "tall tale" - lol. Also love your contest and cannot wait to hear about some of the names readers come up with for a brand new cupcake in your next Cupcake Bakery mystery.

    Everyone: SPRINKLE WITH MURDER won't be published until March, but I was lucky enough to read it in manuscript form, and I really enjoyed it. The book introduces warm and wonderful characters that will intsantly feel like friends--and of course there's a delicious murder mystery, too.

    Congrats again, Jenn, on SPRINKLE's receiving a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Not a bad start to a new series launch. Woot!:)

  5. What a neat contest. Looking forward to reading "Sprinkle With Murder." Didn't peg you for a skateboard rider. LOL. Love the pix of the cupcakes, so cute.

  6. Jenn, thanks for plugging The Diva Paints the Town! Sophie and Natasha would adore your mouse cupcakes. So clever!

    I hope you'll share the cupcake name suggestions. Your contest will be fun!

    I've had the good luck to read Sprinkle with Murder in advance. They should sell it with a box of cupcakes because readers will crave them!

  8. Wow, you're a skateboarder! That's definitely my son's arena, although they do have some interesting looking boards that I keep thinking would be good exercise. I can't wait to see the results of the contest. Have fun!

  10. Thanks all, I've gotten some very funny and serious entrants so far. It's making my email
    a lot more fun. There are some very creative cupcake lovers out there!

    Hey, did anyone see the coding that was in my blog? I fixed it, but I thought it looked like I was swearing. LOL!
