Last Friday of the Month Recipe from Author Terri Reed ~ Sourdough French Toast


 Yum, there isn't too much more to say, except add a few more yums in there. I love the combination of sourdough bread and egg.  
This recipe from author Terri Reed looks incredible.  Enjoy, I know I will.  

And don't forget, she has a book to share, Guardian, Classified K-9 Unit.  A Love Inspired Suspense!!

The recipe and why you love making it:

Saturday morning brunch has always been one of our family’s favorite meals together. We usually sleep in a little and gather in the kitchen where we laugh and talk about the week. Our favorite brunch menu includes French toast, bacon and fresh fruit. This recipe was perfected by my daughter. I’d never heard of vanilla bean paste, let alone used it until she decided to become a pastry chef. The paste adds such a richness to the batter that vanilla extract doesn’t. And the almond milk gives a touch of sweetness as well as flavor. Yum. I hope you’ll enjoy.

Sourdough French Toast

Ingredients:
Sourdough bread: about 8 pieces, depending on the size of your bread
3 medium eggs
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
A stick of butter on hand
Topping as desired





Instructions:
Brown two tablespoons of butter in a pan on medium heat. Whisk together the eggs, almond milk, vanilla bean paste, and ground cinnamon. 

Drench the sourdough bread pieces in the egg batter and place in the browned butter simmering in the pan. Let sit until the underside is golden brown; flip the bread and cook the other side. Brown additional butter in the pan as needed.

When both sides are golden brown, place the French toast on a plate and top as desired. Consider an additional slab of butter melted on top, along side powdered sugar and warm maple syrup.



Short Book Blurb:
Protecting The Single Mom ...
When a fellow FBI agent is kidnapped and a protected witness vanishes, Leo Gallagher will stop at nothing to find them both. So when he discovers a link between the case and a single mother in Wyoming, Leo and his trusty K-9 partner rush to question Alicia Duncan. Could she be the key to locating the missing persons? Not if a killer has anything to say about it. Someone is determined to keep Alicia from talking, so Leo and his chocolate Lab must keep her and her little boy safe on their family ranch. With danger lurking around every corner, Leo must work overtime to not lose another person who's important to him.

Take Five And Meet Author Sylvie Grayson


Woot! Another new author to me. I love finding authors to share with you.  
And wait until you read the answer to question #2!

Welcome to An Indie Adventure, Sylvie Grayson.  Tell us, what inspired you to write your book Weapon of Tyrants, The Last War: Book Four?


I started The Last War series a few years ago. My critique partners and I have been unable to decide whether these stories fit in the science fiction or fantasy category, so I list them as both - sci-fi/fantasy. In book three, Damian had a tough life and he goes through a very difficult situation where he ends up killing someone to protect his sister. He tried to ignore it but it continued to bother him.
I had started a different adventure for book four, but Damian kept talking to me and I decided he deserved his own story. So I put the original fourth in the series on hold and wrote Damian’s book. I’m happy with it – it’s the story of a good man caught in a tough spot and his redemption is as important as the continuing saga of the Last War.
If you were not a writer, what vocation would you pursue?
I have been a lot of things. I have been a lawyer, a businesswoman, a pub manager. I really loved being self-employed – it suited my personality to have that kind of freedom and responsibility. I think being an author is similar – freedom and responsibility. If I don’t sit down and work, the writing doesn’t get done.

Do you prefer to read in the same genre you write in, or do you avoid reading that genre?  Why?

I write sci fi/fsci-fi and contemporary romantic suspense – and I read a great deal of both of those. But I also read adventure, suspense, mystery. I don’t read thriller as a rule, as they are so often about psychopaths who murder people for the fun of it, and I don’t find that entertaining. I like to find a compelling story behind the actions of the characters. For favourite authors, I’d have to list Bernard Cornwell, Neal Stephenson, Anna Markland, Linda Howard.

How do you create internal and external conflict in your characters?  I find conflict often the hardest to create when I start planning a book.

Believe it or not, the conflict comes automatically. When I begin a story, I already know there is great hardship ahead for my characters J And their job is to work their way through the hotbed of chaos, conflict and catastrophe that awaits them. I usually have at least a couple of major hurdles in mind before I start writing, and that helps.

If you could live during any era of history, which one would you choose?

I would live today. I love history, and exploring former eras is great fun. But the freedom we have now is amazing, the things we are able to do today that weren’t possible even fifty years ago, this is a real gift. I wouldn’t trade it.


Give us a brief summary of Weapon of Tyrants, The Last War: Book Four:
Fanny Master is running for her life. Can she trust a criminal enforcer to keep her safe?
Fanny is from the elite in Khandarken, and when both her parents are murdered, she is forced to run for her life, or be the next victim of the people who hunt her. Amid the chaos of the International Head Ball Games, and as Emperor Carlton ramps up his plans for invasion to the north, her attacker makes another attempt on her life.
Damian Stuke was an enforcer for an illegal gamer, but now he is in training as an undercover agent for the Khandarken military. Then he encounters a fascinating woman with a hidden agenda. But when he discovers what she’s hiding, his protective instincts kick into high gear. Will Damian be able to save her from her unknown enemy, or is he still working for the other side?
 "Ms Grayson has created a fascinating new world with a lot of the same old problems. Sci fi and fantasy rolled into one with a sure hand and enormous imagination, a stunning portrayal of a new world created from fire and consumed at the edges …- sci-fi and fantasy at its best…"

Screenwriter Robert Gosnell ~ Pants On Fire


 Pants on Fire

Lying has become a nebulous thing, of late. In the good-old-days,  facts were never up for debate. Now, for far too many of us, our facts are driven by emotion and ideology, rather than reality.

As writers, we lie. That's our job. We make up stories and tell them, and by definition, that's a lie. Even stories about a real-life incident or person must be embellished, compressed and dramatized. Truth sprinkled with lies.

What we have going for us is that our audience knows we're lying, going in, and they're fine with it. They're willing to suspend their disbelief in order to be entertained. To a point.

While they will accept our stories as fiction, the way we tell those stories is the subject of great scrutiny and held to a high standard. The world we've created must be accurate.

I recently encountered a blog discussion regarding the bear attack on Leonardo DiCaprio's character in the film "The Revenant." There were many comments criticizing the filmmakers for a lack of authenticity in the scene. Some were valid, some picky, some far-fetched.

The bear wouldn't do that. The character would have done this. The season was wrong. The cub was too young. The bear didn't look real.

It harkens me back to a classic Hollywood story concerning the TV comedy series, "Mr. Ed," about a talking horse. A writer on the show pitched a line for Mr. Ed to George Burns, who was a producer. Burns listened to the line, then shook his head.

"The horse wouldn't say that."

The writer responded, "I got a flash for you, George. The horse wouldn't say anything!"

"No," George replied, "the character we've given the horse wouldn't say that."

Mr. Burns put himself in the audience. He was willing to believe a horse could talk, even knowing it wasn't true. He just didn't believe Mr. Ed would say that.

Mistakes can come in many forms in the making of a film. Sometimes, it has to do with continuity.

"Hey, the top button of his shirt was unbuttoned in that last shot!"

"Her drink was almost empty. Now, it's full!"

They point out these little flaws because they feel cheated when they encounter them. They were totally involved in your story, and now you've lied to them. You've rudely jerked them back to reality.

Other times, the problem stems from a choice based on time considerations, editing issues, lack of research or just plain laziness.

It's such a little thing, they tell themselves. The audience won't notice. Except, they do. They always have and they always will.

No place in our world for alternative facts.

Five Secrets from Author Kathleen Kaska


Holey moley (you'll get it when you read on.) These secrets are fun and I'm dying to know the answer to #5.  Welcome back, Kathleen Kaska. 

She'll also be a guest on our Cozy Mystery week, April 3-8. Don't miss it.

Hi Kathleen) please tell us Five Secrets we may not know about you, but will after today!


1. I have a personal editor whom I’ll call Evelyn. She resides in my subconscious and analyzes what I’ve written while I sleep. Sometimes she wakes me up in the middle of the night to let me know I misused a word. For example: “Are you sure you want to use the word cockatoo? You can’t drink a cockatoo, but you can drink a cocktail. I’m just saying.” Or she’ll suggest a way to fix a writing problem. “You should consider shortening the first chapter by leaving out the bird-watching story. You can use that later.” Sometimes the message I receive is a reminder. “Did you send the new cover-image for your guest blog post to Leslie?” Evelyn is never wrong. I often wonder why she doesn’t tell me about all my errors and make even more suggestions; then I realize that if she did, I’d never get any sleep.

2. Since I began running marathons four years ago, I’ve secretly wanted qualify for the Boston Marathon. It seems a pie-in-the-sky goal. I’d have to shave off a minute per mile. So I’ll make my secret wish public—and maybe it will come true.

3. While I was good Catholic schoolgirl, I went to confession once a month—as if I had any choice. The nuns marched us from the school to the church and lined us up in front of the confessional. I made my first confession at the age of seven. I couldn’t think of any sins I’d committed so I made some up. If I’d told the priest I hadn’t committed any sins, he might have told Sister Leonardo and she would’ve made my life hell. I left church terrified because I’d broken The Eighth Commandment—in confession! Later I realized the irony of the situation. The absolution I received included being forgiven for lying about lying.

4. My new release, Run Dog Run, was the very first mystery I wrote. I finished the first draft fifteen years ago. It came close to being published several times, but no cigar. I finally put it on the back burner and let it simmer for a few years. The manuscript has been revised and updated so many times I almost have the thing memorized. Two years ago, I updated it again (for technology changes faster than automobile designs) and sent it out. Black Opal Books sent me a contract, and there you have it.

5. Okay, here’s my deepest, darkest secret: I always wanted to be as smart as Hedy Lamarr, as gorgeous as Marilyn Monroe, and as sultry as Lauren Bacall. One out of three ain’t bad. Which one will always remain a secret.


A peek at Run Dog Run:
After five years in Africa researching the decline of elephant populations, Kate Caraway’s project comes to a screeching halt when she shoots a poacher and is forced to leave the country. Kate and her husband, Jack Ryder, travel to Wimberley, Texas for a much-needed rest. But before Kate even has a chance to unpack, her friend’s daughter pleads for Kate’s assistance. The young woman has become entangled in the ugly world of greyhound abuse and believes Kate is the only one with the experience and tenacity to expose the crime and find out who is responsible. On the case for only a few hours, Kate discovers a body, complicating the investigation by adding murder to the puzzle. Now she is in a race against time to find the killer before she becomes the next victim . . .

Five Secrets From Multi-Published Author Amanda Cabot


It truly is a joy to welcome Amanda Cabot to the blog once again. She is an incredibly prolific writer with 34 titles to her credit. 

Here is a review of her new book from Publisher's Weekly; "Readers will enjoy the surprising ending as well as the romance always found in Cabot's books...a promising start to the series."

Welcome to An Indie Adventure, Amanda. Congrats on a great review from PW.  Tell us, what inspired you to write your book A Stolen Heart?
I’ve always been intrigued by the secrets we hold and the effect they can have not only on ourselves but also – depending on their magnitude – on future generations.  Add to that the conflict inherent in a Northerner coming to a small town in Texas in the aftermath of the War Between the States and Reconstruction, and I had both the overarching theme of the entire Cimarron Creek trilogy and the primary conflict in A Stolen Heart
If you were not a writer, what vocation would you pursue?
A skydiver, a rock climber, a race car driver?  No!  I’m definitely not that brave.  But, if I couldn’t be a writer, I’d love to be a concert pianist.  Why?  Music touches me in many of the same ways that a well-written book does.  Unfortunately, my musical skills do not qualify me for Carnegie Hall.

Do you prefer to read in the same genre you write in, or do you avoid reading that genre?  Why?

I’m a fairly eclectic reader and read in a number of different genres.  No horror and limited sci fi, but I enjoy mysteries, the occasional thriller, mainstream and women’s fiction in addition to romance.  Within the romance genre, I read many but not all subgenres. 

How is your main character completely different than you?

Lydia is a successful candy maker, whereas I …  Let’s just say that no one’s lining up to buy (or even eat) my homemade candies.

If you could live during any era of history, which one would you choose?

Even before Downton Abbey captivated the world, I thought it would be wonderful to live in early twentieth century England, provided – of course – that I was among the wealthy.  That way I’d have servants, so the absence of modern conveniences like microwave ovens and food processors wouldn’t be my problem, but I’d have what appears, at least on the surface, to be an elegant and enjoyable lifestyle.

Give us a brief summary of A Stolen Heart:

From afar, Cimarron Creek seems like an idyllic town tucked in the Texas Hill Country. But when former schoolteacher Lydia Crawford steps onto its dusty streets in 1880, she finds a town with a deep-seated resentment of Northerners—like her. Lydia won’t let that get her down, though. All will be well when she’s reunited with her fiancĂ©.

But when she discovers he has disappeared—and that he left behind a pregnant wife—Lydia is at a loss about what to do next. The handsome sheriff urges her to trust him, but can she trust anyone in this town where secrets are as prevalent as bluebonnets in spring?

Five Secrets From Author Lynn Crain


Today we meet Lynn Crain, one of six authors in this anthology that spans the decades...but hey, I'll let Lynn tell you about it, and her part in it.

Award-winning author Lynn Crain has done it all in her life. From nursing to geology, her life experiences have added to her detail-rich stories. She loves writing full time, weaving contemporary, fantasy, futuristic and paranormal tales, tame to erotic, for various publishers. Her home is in the desert southwest, and she’s just returned from her latest adventure of living in Vienna, Austria while her husband worked his dream job. She loves hearing from her readers.

Hi, Lynn, please tell us Five Secrets we may not know about Decades of Love or you, but will after today!

1) Every story is set in Las Vegas, Nevada. We each got a decade where you could prove love was alive and well in Las Vegas!

2) Since I grew up in the Las Vegas area and graduated high school in the mid-1970s, I was really jazzed that my decade turned out to be 1970. I was sweating it for a while there…LOL!

3) One of the things that really made an impact on me while I was growing up was the Vietnam War. Many of the boys just a little older than me, were sent away and never came back. It’s one of the main reasons my heroine became a nurse in that war.

4) The place where I have the heroine living in my story, Hooked on a Feeling, in the Decades of Love anthology is someplace I drove by frequently while I was in college in Las Vegas. We all thought it exotic since it was protected by a large wall and we knew many entertainers lived there. It wasn’t until I was researching this story, that I really understood just how unique an area it was.

5) It was quite commonplace in the 1970s and before for people to carry guns around. It took a long time to clean up the wild west town that Vegas originally was, so it’s easy to imagine why the mob could come in so easily. Still, being a product of that time, I have said the town was cleaner and nicer when the mob was in control. It was only in the later years when mob management lost control that it became the wild west again. Yes, many of the things in Casino are true.

Blurb:
Love hits the jackpot in these six seductive tales, each set in a different decade in the hottest, wildest, most sinful of cities - Las Vegas.  

In Elizabeth Spaur’s Miss Atomic Bomb, a beauty pageant brings a cowboy and city girl together.  

A desperate singer finds new hope with a not-so-jaded casino owner in B.A. McIntosh’s Home at Last.  

In Lynn Crain’s, Hooked on a Feeling,  two Vietnam vets get a second chance at love while facing enemies at home.  

A rodeo star falls hard for a showgirl in Diane Deeds' Total Eclipse of the Heart.  

In Kay Phoenix’s An Unexpected Knight, a hero on a mighty steed captures the heroine’s heart. 

A good girl learns that being bad can be very, very good in Tami Cowden’s It Happened One Vegas Night.   

Mobsters and G-men, cowboys and showgirls, singers and dancers, and even a knight in shining armor all find that Sin City is not just a place to have fun – but also a great place to fall in love.

Guest Post by Paty Jager: How I Plot A Murder


I bet that title (How I Plot A Murder) got your attention. It's my pleasure to bring you Paty Jager, who will also be on my blog in April during Cozy Mystery Week.  
Welcome, Paty.

Hi, L.A., thanks for having me here. There are lots of people who sit around and contemplate murder. Some because they actually want to do away with someone, and others, like me, because we want to write an entertaining twist of events that keeps the reader guessing until the end when the real murderer is revealed.

The first mystery I wrote came about from years of reading mysteries by Agatha Christie, Dick Francis, Tony Hillerman, Dorothy Gillman, Sue Grafton, and many other mystery authors.  The second catalyst to my writing that first mystery was wishing someone, who had wronged my family, dead.
 
I murdered that person in a book- twice. It was a wonderful feeling to have her strangled by her own, long hair. Then I ventured away from mystery, knowing I didn’t know enough about the genre to write a story that took the reader on the type of journey I enjoyed as a reader.

Years later, I decided I was now ready to write a mystery and had learned the necessary skills needed to do so. I came up with a character who not only kept me true to my branding of Cowboys and Indians, she had a unique occupation for an amateur sleuth. Shandra Higheagle is a potter. She digs clay on the mountain where she lives, purifies the clay, and uses it in her original art pieces. She lives in a small tourist community which gives her close friends and brings in unknown people for victims to my murdering thoughts. ;)


When I start plotting out a mystery, I come up with the person I want murdered, the reason why, and why my amateur sleuth would get involved in finding the real killer. Once I’ve established these three things, I make a chart with suspects. On this chart, I give the suspect a name, what they do, and how they are connected to the murdered person. Then I make up a motive and red herrings that I can use to draw the attention of the readers and the characters away from the real killer.

I would have to say, this process in writing a book is my favorite. I love coming up with the ‘what if’s’ and ‘maybe this person did it because.’ The only problem is, while at this stage, I circle one of the suspects as the one who murdered the victim. In most cases, as the story progresses, the killer ends up being someone else.

The coolest part about writing a mystery book is when I write a scene and add something in that seems out of place after I finish the scene, then several chapters later, that little clue my mind slipped into the story is the piece that connects who the killer really is.

My Shandra Higheagle mysteries have a bit of paranormal in them. In the first book, the reader discovers Shandra is returning from her Nez Perce grandmother’s funeral and seven drums ceremony. Then as she and her friend are thought to be suspects in an art gallery owner’s murder, her grandmother comes to her in dreams, giving her clues that she must decipher to realize who the murderer could be.

This twist not only gives a bit of paranormal/spirituality to the books, but it gives me another way to have readers guessing about the real murderer. There are the concrete clues that Shandra and Detective Ryan Greer dig up, and then there are the cryptic dreams Shandra has that also point to the real killer.

There are currently seven books in the series. Each one shows a progression of the relationship between the main characters. With some silly relief from Shandra’s pony-sized, timid dog, Sheba. 

You can download the first book, Double Duplicity as an ebook for free at all ebook
vendors, or you can purchase it as a print or audio book.

Book one of the Shandra Higheagle Native American Mystery Series

Dreams…Visions…Murder

On the eve of the biggest art event at Huckleberry Mountain Resort, potter Shandra Higheagle finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. She’s ruled out as a suspect, but now it’s up to her to prove the friend she witnessed fleeing the scene was just as innocent. With help from her recently deceased Nez Perce grandmother, Shandra becomes more confused than ever but just as determined to discover the truth. While Shandra is hesitant to trust her dreams, Detective Ryan Greer believes in them and believes in her.

Can the pair uncover enough clues for Ryan to make an arrest before one of them becomes the next victim?

Book two of the Shandra Higheagle Native American Mystery Series

Murder… Deceit… Greed…

Shandra Higheagle is digging up clay for her renowned pottery when she scoops up a boot attached to a skeleton. She calls in Weippe County detective Ryan Greer.  The body is decades old and discovered to be Shandra’s employee’s old flame.
Ryan immediately pegs Shandra’s employee for the murderer, but Shandra knows in her heart that the woman everyone calls Crazy Lil couldn’t have killed anyone, let alone a man she loved.

Digging up the woman’s past takes them down a road of greed, miscommunication, and deceit.  Will they be able to prove Crazy Lil innocent before the true murderer strikes again?
