Paying it forward and giving back. Two things I’ve always embraced.
(Drawing Saturday, Prizes See raffle copter below)
This year’s Rebel Ink Press project is a cookbook. Makala from Beverly’s Secret has her jambalaya recipe in the cookbook. My son asks me to make that for dinner at least once a week. LOL
Twenty seven Rebel Ink Press authors contributed to the book. A portion of the proceeds are being donated to Heifer International to help people feed themselves.
The book is available in hard copy and in Ebook formats. Consider a purchase for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays or oh heck because you want some jam up ideas for cooking food.

Beverly’s Secret released yesterday at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance Ebooks. All the big established e-book vendors. I got word from my publisher that they’ve established agreements with Ibooks and Kobo as well. So my titles will eventually be listed there as well.
Most of you know I am on night shift. So, I promoted release day even as I was waking up. Which was followed by a message from a friend that “Beverly’s Secret” had already broken the top 100 at Amazon sitting at #92 on the Lesbian Romance list.
WOW! I hope everyone likes this fun lesbian contemporary romp.
I loved writing it. And Makala’s recipe for Jambalaya that she cooked for Beverly is in the Rebel Ink Press cookbook project “Way to the Heart” A charitable donation will be made for every copy sold to Heifer International. @heifer #rebelinkpress #charityproject #charitywork
What a great mother’s day present!
Now for “Beverly’s Secret”
Beverly Carter, clerk at Salynne’s Crystal’s and Thyme could have sworn she placed the amethyst necklace in the display cabinet. How did the gem end up in her pocket? She’d have to take it back to work in the morning and explain her mistake to the shop owner.
Trying the necklace on for just a moment couldn’t hurt anything. When the clasp won’t release she has to call on her next-door neighbor, Makala Reynaud for help. A woman that Beverly is very attracted to but hasn’t had the courage to approach. She hasn’t figured out how to confess her interest without outing herself prematurely. Bev’s pretty sure the woman is a lesbian too. What if she was wrong? So Beverly’s been stuck, just as stuck as the damn necklace.
Then, Makala’s red lips were just too tempting, too perfect, too close. Stealing a kiss could open a door to disaster instead of the closet on her sexual preference. Yet, the way Makala accepted the kiss and returned it with unabashed enthusiasm blew that door off its hinges.
They spent the night talking and exploring sex every way and everywhere possible in Makala’s small apartment. Beverly had to wonder if the rumors about the necklace were true. Was this some kind of spell that might only last the night? Could this be the beginning of something magical?
Rebel In Press Authors look for ways to give back each year. This year Rebel Ink Press is creating a cook book with contributions from twenty seven of us. I submitted Makala Reynaud’s family Jambalaya recipe cooked up for Beverly in “Beverly’s Secret”
“The Way To The Heart” cook book will be released 4/17/13! The same day as “Beverly’s Secret”. Carl Franklin the Ninja Graphic Artist extraordinair! has been busy again. Take a look.
Through the ages food has been seen as a way to commune with others, bringing fellowship to the table while nourishing the body. Food is key in celebration and in honoring. It’s also been commonly widespread everything from asparagus to honey to chocolate and oysters hold aphrodisiacal properties. But we at Rebel Ink Press believe not only is food nourishment for the body and fuel for romance, cooking is one of the sexiest and most nurturing things one can do for another.
It’s the way to the heart.
Rebel Ink Press presents The Way to the Heart, a collection of recipes from twenty-six Rebel writers, our charitable project for 2013. For every copy sold a charitable donation will be made to help nurture families and communities around the world through Heifer International.
Thank you for your purchase. By opening your heart, you’ll find the way to someone else’s.
