New winners & other news continued!

Now this is important! As you may remember, I have been conducting a contest looking for recipes to post in my upcoming book Truffles & Kisses. I decided to allow for two categories and am happy to announce that I have two winners! First of all, thanks to all who entered. And the winners are:
In the category of Appetizers I chose a recipe for Caprese Layer Dip submitted by Button. In the Sides category I chose a recipe for Baked Fried Taters submitted by Brooke. Congratulations guys!
Each winner will receive a signed copy of "Dawn's Gray Light" as promised, along with a recipe collector's box/book. They will also receive special recognition in the first book in the Smoky Mountain Magic Series "Truffles & Kisses" and their recipes will be printed at the end of that book.
If you didn't win, or have a chance to enter this contest keep watching. I have a new contest about every other month.
The photo shoot for "Truffles & Kisses" was a couple of weekends back and I'm excited to show you the first draft of the full cover, including the synopsis. Thanks to cover models Jo and Cody Chason. What a beautiful couple! My lovely cover designer Rachel Rhule of Rhule Visual Arts is busy making sure everything is perfect before we have the final reveal, so this is just a taste and still rough around the edges. Even so, if you have any suggestions for improvement to the cover (front or back) please feel free to send your ideas to me at or leave a comment on my BRAND NEW Website (still a work in progress) at
