I’m in Portland for the Golden Crown Literary Society Annual Conference and my publisher, Bella Books, had a dinner for their authors. The hotel we’re staying at (Red Lion on the River at Jantzen Beach) provided a very nice spread that included pulled pork sliders and Thai chicken lollipops. There was also salad but my constant readers know my feelings on that (salad isn’t food, it is what food eats).
Following dinner, the inimitable Karin Kallmaker (writer of riveting lesbian romances and Editorial Director for Bella), provided us with a selection of truffles from the Moonstruck Chocolate Company, a Portland chocolatier. They were beautiful to look at and even better to eat. There was even a selection from Oregon distillers that were almost too gorgeous to eat.
Key word being ‘almost.’ Rich decadent chocolate plus the flavors of spirits made my mouth very, very happy!
Thanks so much to Linda Hill, Karin Kallmaker and all the others who make up the Bella Books family. I’m honored my books have such a good home.
