I couldn't find a good snippet from Page 56, so this is from Page 156.


They returned to the table and got their meals situated. Rodger smiled at her over their steaming bowls of soup and asked her what it was she hoped to learn from him. She took his directness at face value.

  8. For no particularly good reason, that book cover is making me think of Dim Sum Dead: A Madeline Bean Culinary Mystery
    by Jerrilyn Farmer. Well the whole food mystery connection and the covers have very similar themes now that I look at it. Clearly I am tired and easily distracted by shiny objects today.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
