I have to admit, I've been loafing a little bit lately. The busy high season is over in Key West, and besides that, my writer is down to the wire on our fourth book, MURDER WITH GANACHE.
She got a little annoyed with me this week, suggesting I get off my houseboat and do some work for the common good. Along with writing, she's been traipsing all over creation talking about TOPPED CHEF.

Anyway, one thing we decided I could do is help gather the foodie quotes that we use at the beginning of each chapter. And when I heard Killer Characters was celebrating its resuscitation by giving away books, I got excited. Maybe you guys could provide me the quotes and I could get the glory:). Here are a few examples that we've already used in the first few books:
“Charles Barclay’s weight loss secret: If it tastes good, I spit it out.”
"Because the goodness of the ingredients—the fine chocolate, the freshest lemons—seemed like a cover over something larger and darker, and the taste of what was underneath was beginning to push up from the bite." Aimee Bender
"It is possible to imagine him having a small meal of minor critics for breakfast, as if they were kippers." Dwight Garner
“Never eat more than you can lift.” Miss Piggy
Here's how the contest works: You enter a quote by somebody--anybody--as long as it's related to food, and we'll enter your name in the drawing. Two quotes? Two chances! And you can choose which book you'd like to win.
And I promised I wouldn't forget to say:
TOPPED CHEF can be found wherever books are sold.
