It’s slowly coming together.
Why, THE MOSSBACK INN COOKBOOK!
What is it?
Well, what I’ve tried to do is create a 1980s look in a cookbook, based on a fictional eatery that figures largely in my Traces of Treasure novel series. Hey, I collect cookbooks I know what it’s supposed to look like.
The Mossback Inn is a recurrent setting in both books, a local sort of greasy spoon, a throwback to the fifties and sixties, trying to hang on in the eighties. The owner, Smidgeon Toll, is a feisty businesswoman, a romantic foil to the hero of the books but she, in fact, carries a good bit of that load herself in the second book of the series.
It’s not going to be huge, but it will look like the type of cookbook a place like I’ve created in the book might publish privately, just as a sort of tourist keepsake.
Except — for now — it will only be an ebook and a pdf one at that.
Sure, the place is fictional, and the characters are fictional, but the recipes you’ll find inside are real. The setting is in the southwest, so the focus is on recipes one would find in the southwest. All are good, and some are surprising. Best of all, this will be a freebie.
