Saturnalia food

I’ve had something flu-like for the past week, so I haven’t had much appetite for either eating or cooking. I’m going to take a look at the ancient cookbook and see what it advises for knocking out a cold and revving up the appetite when Saturnalia season is starting and constant feasting is required. I’ll post some recipes tonight 🙂

If you’re on Goodreads and a member of the M/M Romance group, you can sign up to read and review the complete edition of The Knife of Narcissus (if it says “parts 1 & 2,” don’t worry, that’s just a temporary typo). Up to fifteen readers can get a copy. If you aren’t a member of M/M Romance, come over and join us—there are lots of interesting discussions and giveaways.

And I’ll be starting Saturnalia fun and recipes here on the blog on Tuesday!

OMNIBUS ET SATURNALIA

It’s the release day for the Knife of Narcissus omnibus!

Come for a visit every day next week for some free stories, more chapters from upcoming books, more ancient recipes, and general Saturnalia hijinks. There may very well be gladiators—it could happen! I won’t rule out gladiators.

After such a long time living every moment with the serial, I have all sorts of feels about putting it out there now as an all-in-one version. A fellow author asked me a few questions about the process (and I’ll be talking about her books next week too—great ones for Romanophiles, and contemporary stories also). Now that I’ve had time to reflect soberly, drunkenly, and under the influence of very sweet and highly caffeinated beverages, I have a few thoughts to share about it all here, too.

But mostly, December is a great excuse to experiment with a lot more Roman recipes and to share the results!

One week to the omnibus

It’s been a while since I’ve updated–November was a crazy month! Now December has rolled in and we’re at the one week—well, 6-day—countdown to the release of the all-in-one version of The Knife of Narcissus. I hope the collected edition will entice a few new readers to try the story!

The Knife of Narcissus Omnibus (all 7 parts) will release in a month, on December 9!

For anyone who wants it all in one chunk, here it is–and it’s a big chunk: 150,000 words.

The tentative cover (there may be a redesign):

In other news, I’m at work on this year’s NaNoWrimo, but it’s slow going. This year’s challenge: gladiators.

Knife of Narcissus 7 coverWhew! Made it to the end!

If you haven’t read the series yet, there’s a chance to win all 7 parts, plus the Saturnalia novella, on Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews. This installment’s guest post is about the Roman holiday of Saturnalia: the festival of, well, carousing.

I may have caroused a little bit too hard today in celebration; tomorrow I’ll be recovering; and then Wednesday…back to writing!

The end of the serial is almost here . . .
