 From Lizz:
Just a quick note to let you know that the "companion" book to Kitchen Addiction! will be available as a FREE $0 Kindle download on Friday, September 28th and Saturday, September 29th!
It is a recipe booklet, which features actual recipes (created by my husband, Chef Andrew) that correspond to various portions of the novel, and Mina Kitchen's catering disorder :) These portions of the novel are featured, along with an accompanying recipe.
The free recipe booklet is called Kitchen Addiction! Recipes. It features the same cover as the novel but has this separate title.
I hope your readers who have already downloaded my novel Kitchen Addiction! will find this an entertaining culinary companion. And, for your readers new to my work, I hope this will be a fun introduction.

Thanks Lizz for sharing this with us! It looks like a goodie!

My Girls are soooo picky!

They love these!
How on earth is a body supposed to make time for quality reading when two little hounds keep running out of goodies? Well... you buy in bulk on Amazon and have it delivered!

It's not like I'm trying to feed a pair of St. Bernards... Just a (very vocal) 15 year old Yorkie and a (not so vocal but quite lively) 2 year old Italian Greyhound... I have pretty much figured out the little fuzz ball speaks for both of them.

We try to make sure we get as few artificial flavorings and preservatives as possible... and these little goodies fit the bill perfectly. Buying the 4 pound bags keeps me from hoofing it to the pet food store every week... Thank GOD for Amazon! Even with the shipping I am saving $$

Ask Mrs. Wizard - Kindle USB connection

This is a great question... Thanks Janet!

Hi I have a basic kindle and I ejected it so I could use while charging, but now can not get back into drive mode.
Using windows XP

You have to physically disconnect the usb cable, then reconnect it... That will tell your computer it is back in action as a drive again. Then you can drag book files to it and all those other good things you can do when it is in "drive" mode.

Be sure to check out The All New Kindle Family... It is amazing what Amazon has been up to lately. You shouldn't have a huge learning curve with these new Kindles... just a lot more fun!

Special Thanks to John for sharing this with us!  FREE today and tomorrow!

Women of the Way is an inspirational historical novel recounting the stories of three women in first-century Palestine that find their lives transformed when they meet an enigmatic, itinerant rabbi from Nazareth named Yeshua.

Miriam is a widow of independent means, defamed as a harlot and shunned by the villagers of Magdala precisely because of her independence. Joanna is a patrician woman and wife of Chuza, King Herod’s chief steward, who finds herself subjected to the unwanted advances of Philip, Herod’s nephew.  Hannah, the Homeless One, is a young orphan roaming from village to village, barely able to keep herself alive.

The words and deeds of Yeshua draw the women to him. But Palestine is a volatile land where Roman rule and Jewish nationalism are on a collision course. Women are not treated as equals to men—despite Yeshua’s egalitarian views; feminism is centuries away. As Yeshua’s popularity increases, so do the numbers of his enemies and the women find themselves in mortal danger as they spread the teachings of the Way.

Drawn from Bible stories, Women of the Way blends adventure with spirituality, and history with religion to create a thought-provoking and moving book.

Book Description

Knowles is a fast moving tale of a warrior which starts out in Texas in the 1870's. When a small town sheriff is gunned down in the street by the murderous Hays gang, everyone in Reliant looks the other way except for Knowles. Johnny Knowles is determined to track down and bring the killers of the man he considered to be his father to justice, come what may.

This is a richly accurate, fast moving, action packed taste of the old west which takes you for a ride with young Johnny Knowles on a steamboat down the Mississippi to the fancy pleasure houses of New Orleans and the meanest neighborhood in the world on Gallatin Street. Knowles' pursuit leads you through a series of hair raising adventures in the toughest towns in Texas.

But this story is not just about seeking revenge. It is also about helping others and finding true love. The whole panorama of the era unfolds before you, as you follow along with Knowles in a surprise twist to the final showdown.

Free on Amazon Today

Kitchen Addiction! (Mina Kitchen novels) by Lizz Lund will be FREE for today (Sept 1) and ending Labor Day (Sept 3) in the Kindle books on Amazon.
Isn't it nice of her to share? Thanks Lizz!

Book Description:
Meet Mina Kitchen, a forty-something single who likes to cook - and cook and cook. In fact, her zest for whipping up trays of canapes is dwarfed only by her weird luck and mountain-lion size tabby cat, Vinnie. That, and her godmom's tendency for blackmailing new members into joining St. Bart's. Okay, maybe Mina's Swiffer-addicted neighbor, Vito, is a bit weird, too. As if all that wasn't enough, Mina's a Jersey girl transplanted in the midst of the Amish-flavored countryside of Lancaster, PA.

Things get really complicated when she learns that her neighbor Vito is in a witness protection program, and her dry cleaner deals in prescription samples. Throw in a few mysterious flaming feces flingers and a fuse box labeled in Arabic, and you have a recipe for catering disorders.

Kitchen Addiction! will keep you smiling when you're not LOL-ing. Set in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you'll find a surprising cast of characters, humorous plot twists, red herrings and actual recipes. Well, some of the recipes are real. The others you might to take with a pinch of salt, and some Tums.

If you're looking for a funny fiction read, packed with humor, excitement - and recipes - look no further. Lund's debut "chick lit" novel blends fun characters, great dialogue and zany capers into a frothy fiction that's sure to amuse. The novel also delivers a virtual tourist romp through the actual streets of Lancaster City and its surroundings.
