Want to win the recipe for the bloody-looking drink in the photo?
That drink is Choke-berry Shalamiz which is the non-alcoholic beverage used by Tienan (the hero) in Chapter 10 to 'baptize' Janay (the heroine) 'in the blood of ages.'
Only one person will get this unique drink recipe. All you have to do is post a comment (even if only to say congratulations on the book seeing print) or if you ask a question today, you'll have a chance to win the recipe.
Now when I drafted the novel, I made up the name Choke-berry Shalamiz. It never existed until October 1, 2012, when I consulted a chef. We developed not only the book's thick "blood of ages" drink (which is also very tasty on ice cream, cheesecake, vanilla pudding, and pears) but also a fruity beverage with a bloody fizz that would be the hit of any Halloween party. Why, even a vampire like Granger (the vampire in Karma and Mayhem), would drool over it.
So, what are you waiting for? Post a comment–or two (doubling your chances).
