Andy & I were delighted to welcome Ann McMan to the show to talk about her fantastic book, Jericho. We had so much fun with her. What a great sense of humor! This was one of my favorite shows. We also discussed Melissa Good’s Shadows of the Soul. Very good. Love her work! You can find info about Ann’s work at www.annmcman.com and Missy’s work at www.merwolf.com.
We also announced the winners of the Cocktail Hour Writing Challenge. Congratulations to Ursula Kincaid (aka the Fallen) for her 1st place story, The Unashamedly Redheaded Blues! Our 2nd & 3rd place winners were both written by Norsebard, Class of ’88 and Culture Crash: The Bard and the Biker, respectively. Honorable mention goes to Kim Phoenix for her entry, Rani. Thank you so much for entering! Listeners, be sure to read the ebook containing the stories, and a special bonus, non-judged entry written by Another Author. The books are located on the Reading page in epub and rtf formats (http://cocktailhour.us/reading). I had some problems with the PDF so took it down. The rtf file is big and will take a little time to download. We hope you enjoy the stories!
Andy and I had some good drinks to go along with the show. Andy enjoyed Slippery Panties and I had Slippery Nipples. Mmmmm. Here’s how you make them:
1 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz FrangelicoÂ® hazelnut liqueur
1 oz butterscotch schnapps
Pour ingredients into a stainless steel shaker over ice,shake until completely cold then strain into a chilled stemmed glass or Rocks glass filled with ice.
Equal parts Irish creme, coffee liqueur, and butterscotch schnapps.
Put the Irish cream in first. Then slowly pour the Kahlua down the side of the glass so it doesn’t mix. Then add the Butterscoth Schnapps on top nice and slow.
Take care, everyone, and I hope you enjoy this very special show.
