Hi y’all. I’m Lulu Taylor. You wouldn’t know me yet because my book, Delicious and Suspicious, hasn’t quite debuted.
Life is nutty when you’ve been written but before your book is released. People are starting to talk about me a little in reviews here and there. But I’m not really officially alive yet because my book is getting all gussied up at the printer still. July 6 will be my birthday.
So what have I been doing in the meantime while I wait? I’ve been hanging out here at the restaurant. Sorry, you wouldn’t know about it yet, since I’m pre-release. It’s a barbeque restaurant by the name of Aunt Pat’s and it sits smack-dab on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee.
Beale Street is alive with music, delicious aromas, and people, but Aunt Pat’s is just about the most peaceful place you’d ever want to hang out. Aside from the murders, of course. We’ve got blues music playing in the background and some of the most fun regulars you’ve ever laid eyes on. They cut up like nobody’s business and sometimes you can’t even understand a word that comes out of their mouth because they’re laughing so hard.
The other characters and I figured that this was party time for us—after all, our work is done. We’ve played out our dramas in the book and now we’re just in limbo waiting to be printed. Why not have a little fun?
Y’all can join me if you like. There’s a screened porch that sits right on the front of the building. And my son, Ben, is just now pulling some ribs out for us. The blues band is setting up and they’re going to be playing music to get your feet tapping. I saved you a rocking chair and a glass of sweet tea.
You can pre-order Delicious and Suspicious at Barnes and Noble and Indie-Bound. If you'd like to hang out with my author, she's Riley Adams--AKA Elizabeth Spann Craig. She's at Mystery Writing is Murder and Mystery Lovers' Kitchen. Thanks for visiting!
