I know it's been well over a year since I published one of my Sweet Bites Mysteries but book 4, Eggnog & Extortion is well underway and I want to celebrate the holiday season with you--and all of your favorite holiday goodies!
My sister and I got together and decided to run a contest. Do you have a family recipe that you always make for the holidays? Something from the "old country" that your family has been making at Christmas for generations? I'm looking for traditional holiday dessert recipes for countries outside the United States. They don't have to be Christmas-specific as long as they are from this time of year. Hanukkah or other holiday recipes from early December to early January are welcome as well.
I did mention there was a contest, right? From now until December 26th you can submit your favorite holiday recipes. On December 29th all of the recipe ingredients and pictures will be posted to my website and blog for the public to vote which one they would most love to try out. Voting will end on January 5th and a winner will be announced.
The winning entry will get their name and recipe featured in Eggnog & Extortion, along with getting a signed copy of the print version and a copy of the ebook when it's released in a few months. In addition, I'm going to be posting the recipes in my book for free download from my site in the not-so-distant future and the recipe will be included there along with the credit of where it originated. As well, entries in the contest will be posted in their entirety in a free downloadable booklet. If you'd prefer not to have your entry in the free ebook, please let us know when you enter the contest.
If we get too many recipes (I know, like there could ever be too many!) we reserve the right to pick our favorite twelve or fifteen for voting.
To enter, send a picture and your recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org.
