What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write? They love desserts. Sweets sustain them through pending deadlines and take the sting out of crushing rejection letters and nasty reviews. They also often celebrate their successes—selling a book, winning a writing award, making a bestseller list, or receiving a fabulous review—with decadent indulgences.What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write?

    This was a fun "present" from GR's First Reads. What a great way to introduce recipes and authors to readers everywhere. Not only did the recipes sound yummy, but the advice on life and love were eye-opening and helpful. You don't want to hurry through this book, but taste a bit here and there. Each morsel tempts you however, and you really can't put the book down for too long. Lois Winston has edited this cookbook in a very ingenious way. The writing advice each contributor has shared also adds to this special cookbook. So if it's baking you like or reading or writing, there's something here for everyone. Now I just hope there will be a sequel to this one. 105 authors and their recipes are fine, but how about another hundred to keep our minds and bodies well-fed!

    105 writers were asked to submit a dessert recipe, advice on relationships, and writing advice.The common threads that pop up are: writers love cake, a sense of humor is important, and just finish already!My favorite piece of writing advice was on the importance of conflict driven plots: "Stick you main character in a tree and then throw rocks at her!"

    Great collection of recipesA great collection of recipes from all over. Each author has given a favorite recipe and relationship advice; I haven't read the love advice, but have read through the recipes and am going start making several of them.

    Caution: do NOT read on an empty stomach!This book is chock-full of delicious recipes. Mostly desserts, though you will find the occasional savory dish as well, such as JJ Cook's Hot Pepper Corn Muffins. As Lois Winston, the editor and driving force behind this book, writes in her introduction: "creative people are known for thinking outside the box, and authors are no exception."But this isn't your run-of-the-mill cookbook, no sir! This is a collection of heartfelt and often funny advice on life and love, from 105 writers spanning genres from mystery and romance to fantasy and paranormal, along with suspense, women's fiction, young adult, new adult, and even some non-fiction thrown in. (Full disclosure: yours truly contributed the recipe for Italian Biscuit Bars.)Still not convinced?

    This is a fun cookbook, devoted only to dessert recipes--yum! 105 authors each contributed a recipe plus thoughts on the writing life...and love. Wonderful recipes, thought-provoking essays. A great project. I contributed my Aunt Martha's fabulous oatmeal cake. I took it to Thanksgiving dinner this last fall, and everyone ate the cake instead of the pumpkin pies!

    This book not only has yummy recipes but also thoughtful advice for writers and relationship advice. Something for everyone, right? I bought this book for a friend. I think it would make a great present for many occasions from birthdays to Christmas.

    Recipes are nice, but for me, the best part of this book is the advice for writers and being introduced to many new authors. Great book idea.
