Daryl aka Avery:
We have a winner for last week's giveaway!
I'll be contacting you regarding which book you choose!
As many of you know, DAYS OF WINE AND ROQUEFORT came out earlier this month!
Did you see the reviews? All were great! Thanks to those who posted them.
Thanks to many of you for buying the book or telling a friend because sales were good. I didn't hit Sheila's numbers, but I'm pleased to say that the book hit the Barnes and Noble mystery mass market paperback list at #7 and the overall fiction at #30. I'm happy; my editor is happy.
Hey, do you know about the giveaways I'm having throughout the month? See below!
Do you know about the giveaway on my newsletter right before the next launch in March? See below!
And do you know...next up…next month, I have another book out: INHERIT THE WORD, the second in the Cookbook Nook mysteries.
If you've read the Cheese Shop mysteries, you now know that Charlotte makes a specialty quiche every day in the shop. The theme started with the first of the series, THE LONG QUICHE GOODBYE. I adore quiche for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Each one can be so novel. The flavors can include meat, veggies, fruit. Fun!
FYI: tidbits to note regarding quiche. The history varies.
According to the French, quiche comes from a term used by the Lorraine Franconian language: Küeche" meaning "cake".
Though most associate quiche with the French, it's possible the Germans created quiche, because the word stems from the German word kuchen, which also means cake.
Not to be left out, the English like to claim origin. Custards in cakes were noted in English cuisine way back in the 14th century. Custards including meat are referred to as Crustardes of flessh in the 14th century book The Forme of Cury, as well as in 15th century cookbooks.
So who's right? Do we care? Probably not. I do hope you'll like the flavors of this quiche. I wanted to use the cheese noted in the title of the latest in the series, so I tweaked one I already had to come up with this recipe. The pears combined with Roquefort cheese make this divine!
For the book giveaway this week, leave a comment with your email included. If you tweet or share on Facebook, tell me in your comment and you'll be entered TWICE.
I'll give you your choice of one of the Cheese Shop mysteries, including the latest DAYS OF WINE AND ROQUEFORT, or a copy of FINAL SENTENCE, the 1st in the Cookbook Nook mysteries. I'll announce the winner next week. Good luck!
