Platform Building

Yesterday I just participated in #pit2pub, a Twitter pitch fest where publishers hop on and favorite book pitches that they'd like to see. This is my third time pitching via Twitter and it's kind of fun and nerve wracking. I was thrilled to get some favorites and submitted a to a few more publishers. Now the wait begins again.

In addition to connecting with publishers and agents, the Twitter contests seem to be a good way to connect with other writers.

I found out about these contests through Heather Ayris Burnell's Facebook Group, Sub it Club. It's been an amazing resource. She recently wrote an article about platform building for writers. It was helpful to me as I'm learning how to do this while submitting my manuscript.

Cake Mix Cobbler

When I need a break from writing, I bake! We have peaches on our tree and frozen berries. This is the perfect recipe for using both. Versions of this recipe are all over the internet. This is my version that is tweaked a little to use less cake mix to make it more of a crumble than a cake.

Here is the recipe:

Peach/Berry Cobbler

Grease 8X8 pan

3-4 cups of fresh or frozen peaches and berries
1 1/4 cups of yellow cake mix
1/4 cup of melted butter

Put the fruit in the pan and sprinkle the cake mix over the top.
Drizzle the butter over the top of the cake mix.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375.

If you have super tart fruit, like blackberries, feel free to toss them with sugar before adding the topping. I find peaches are sweet enough and don't need the added sugar. We like to serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Bon Apetit!


The Happy Hausfrau

One of my favorite blogs to read is The Happy Hausfrau.
It chronicles the raising of kids post divorce.  While, I'm grateful
that I can't relate on a personal level, I love her posts about momdum.
She seems like a real survivor.  If you are looking for compelling reading,
check it out, you won't regret it.
