Happy Thursday, everyone!

I have a few upcoming releases to talk about. Next week, Torquere will be releasing my contribution to their Spice It Up line - "The Perfect Pumpkin Pie." Do you put nutmeg in your pumpkin pie? Well, Leo's roommate is convinced the stuff is poison, and he sends Leo on an impossible mission to the grocery store two nights before Thanksgiving in search of supplies to make the perfect -- nutmeg free -- pumpkin pie. Luckily for Leo, he runs into yummy assistant manager Judson, who not only rescues Leo from the unreasonable demands of his picky roommate, but might also save Leo from yet another lonely holiday without a man in his life.

Then in December I'll have two holiday stories on the Torquere site: A Holiday Sip entitled "Snowed In, Las Vegas Style" and a Holiday Single Shot entitled "Christmas on the Coast." More on these two stories in the upcoming weeks.

And something else that's cool -- I'm hosting over on [livejournal.com profile] torquere_social this Saturday, the 14th. I'll have snippets from "The Perfect Pumpkin Pie" as well as my two Christmas stories, and I'll also be giving away a free copy of "The Perfect Pumpkin Pie" to one lucky commenter. I hope you'll stop by during the day and say hi!

Where on earth did the idea for this story come from? :) Nutmeg as poison; never woulda thunk it. Heh. The snippet I read was pretty darn yummy. Any chance you'll share a bit here?

*g* The poison idea came from a friend. When I told her I planned to write a holiday story about nutmeg, she said, "You know that's poisonous, right?" I didn't, so I researched it. You'd have to eat a bucketload for it to be deadly, but a couple of tablespoons of fresh grated nutmeg is apparently a pretty decent hallucinogenic. My main character's roommate is just a tad on the obsessive, over-reactive side where nutmeg is concerned, so he thinks any little bit is Bad with a capital B. ;)

I plan to post snippets on the Social comm tomorrow, and more snippets here on release day. :)
