Welcome Lee DuCote, Author of MICAH

So, the question is what are they eating? As a small town located in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas time goes a little slower, well maybe a lot slower, and just like in the 1950/60's hamburger joints are still the dive. Even though the story takes place in the present day Hay's Burgers in Seven Springs has been open since…See More

Welcome Auden Johnson, Author of The Sciell

In the Merging Worlds series, you get to know different kinds of non-human characters. You meet the Del’Praeli in Book 1: The Sciell. They’re a race of beings that use the power in Darkness and can become shadows. Because they’re so connected to the Darkness, their bodies are a bit different. They don’t need to eat and…See More

FoodFic Look at Redeemed (House of Night #12)

Be forewarned: this post is one giant spoiler. Not of this book, actually, just the 11 that preceded it. ;)Obviously there have been many changes since this series began, some more predictable than others. Zoey Redbird is no longer just a fledgling; she’s actually a High Priestess now. Or she would be if she wasn’t in…See More

Welcome Ginae Lee Scott, Author of Looking Through the Water

In my novel, Looking Through the Water, when I glanced back into the story, my main character experienced many types of situations with food. I honestly had not seen this before preparing for this blog post. This alone has been fun reflecting on my purpose of the significance of the meals Cassie has had.…See More

Welcome Stacy Juba, Author of Fooling Around with Cinderella

Since my characters work at the Storybook Valley fairy tale theme park, they get to have lots of yummy park food like fried dough, caramel apples, popcorn, and best of all the baked gingerbread men and cinnamon doughnuts from the Little Red Hen Bakery. Jaine gets lots of perks from being the park’s…See More

Welcome Chuck Jones, Author of Circus Tarot

“Get your Cotton Candy! A token a fluff!” the man in the red-and-white-striped suit yells, though he doesn’t need to raise his voice as he walks the fairway; the Ladies and Gentlemen flock to him wherever he is. His completion is the midget peddling popcorn, and his brother, Six of Poles, who sells roasted peanuts. Of…See More

Hi Shelley!

I just thought of a book that might interest you. Perhaps you've read it: Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. If you don't know it, it's not at all like the movie, it's a memoir of sorts, but it reads like good fiction. That book is loaded with food talk, and recipes if I recall correctly. I know I mentioned Pat Conroy to you in an earlier comment, but this one popped into my sieve-like pea brain this morning. Thought it might be worth passing on.

Oh, and Bill Buford's book Heat about training to be a chef in Mario Batali's restaurant is another good one--I think I put on weight while reading that one! I have a chef in my next novel, so I've been reading food related books--hence my blurting multiple titles at once!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for the friending, Shelley! You've made my day! :-)

And no, your pun wasn't too much, but then I love a good pun (yours made me laugh out loud, so how can that be bad?). And writing about food...mmm, I might bloat to a five-hundred pound land-monster if I was in that line of work--I refer to some of my favourite cookbooks as pornography, so there's a potential vice there ;-) Thank heavens there are brave gals like yourself acting as scribes on that oh-so-wonderful subject!

Have you discovered any of the Phaidon books about food? In case you don't know, if you sign up for their newsletters you get members only invites to killer sales. They make decadent books on art, photography, architecture, film, and food! I got one in the last sale called The Art of the Restaurateur by Nicholas Lander. It's all little stories about well-known chefs starting their restaurants. I've got to get a couple other books out of the way before I can bite into this one (how's that for too much on the pun scale? ;-) ). They make some of the most beautiful cookbooks, too. 

Drop me a line if you'd like to chat about food, books, or whatever!

Have a wonderful day!

Thanks for your invite, Shelley. Great to meet you.

Hi Shelley, nice to meet you.

Thank you for the friendship :-)

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Shelley!

Am I reading right, that you have a blog about food in fiction? I love that! It makes me think of Pat Conroy's novels, how food plays such an important role in his fiction. I'm a foodie who doesn't eat meat, so food has become a major element in my fiction too. Looking forward to checking out your blog! :-)

Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!

I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers!

Thank you for reaching out, Shelley. I've been considering deep-sixing She Writes for being too clickish, but maybe I'll give it another look.

Lovely to connect with you, Shelley. Thanks for reaching out!

Hi Shelley, thanks for reaching out; I'm just getting back into SheWrites after a super long editing run!
