Our authorial travels this week focused on the theme of packaging, or more accurately, looking past the packaging to the underlying quiddity. Don’t know the word? We didn’t either, and so quiddity became the word of the week here in Carpenter Country.
No surprise that learning about words is one of our quiddities. Or maybe that’s a quirk, another favorite word of ours, and a synonym of quiddity. We won’t quibble if you think so. 🙂
We started off our travels with Chris Pavesic, who featured our Barbecue Chicken recipe on her blog. While cooking—and writing about—this meal, we focused on the sweet tangy tomato-ey sauce. For us, that is the essence of the recipe.
Author friend Catherine Castle looked past the packaging and saw a different essence. She compared the sauce to sloppy joes, chicken style.
Either way, the recipe is simple and tasty and we hope you’ll give it a try.
Next, Daniel Julian of BookBubble.org was kind enough to give us a page on his blog to showcase Murder by the Books, our cozy mystery. In this case, we hope the packaging—that pretty cover—accurately represents the story of Fae Childers, an accountant who gets caught up in a murder mystery.
Thanks for the opportunity, Daniel!
We ended the week with a book bubble on Bublish that was inspired by a recent trip to the garden center in our local home improvement store. Sometimes looking past the packaging to the quiddities leads to second chances.
