While I appreciate you putting mouth-watering food descriptions in your books, I also charge you with making me hungry. Your excellent sensory prose has led to the revival of my sweet tooth, much snacking, and procrasti-baking. My evidence?
Pecan Pralines. I made these after reading Ellen’s Fatal Cajun Festival.
Cinnamon Rolls. These pastries aren’t even typically served at the café cinema at the heart of Vickie’s My Fair Latte. I still craved them.
Almond Cookies. Elle Marr’s protagonist in The Missing Sister uses these to fuel her search for her sister.
It’s not only my taste buds that have been affected. Fellow 2020 Debut author, A.H. Kim, has taken this even further and done book pairings on her Instagram page. She’ll match a book with the food described within its pages!
I think this is enough, authors. Please share your logical reasons for making me hungry all the time.
P.S. Complimentary food gifts might make me less
