Episode 45 – B. L. Newport
Author B. L. Newport joined me and Andy to talk about the first book of her Reapers, Inc. series, Brigit’s Cross. Except Andy accidentally read the second in the series, Rogue Reaper, but it was a great discussion anyway! Very few spoilers were given so don’t worry about listening. Bonnie was a wonderful guest and I know you’re going to enjoy hearing about her work. You can find more about Bonnie and her work on Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/BLNewport and you buy her books on Amazon.
If you’re looking for a series of books that aren’t the same old thing, you’ll definitely want to pick these up. And if you want to win the first three in either print or ebook format, leave a comment and you’ll have the chance to win them! That’s right, no questions to answer this go around, just leave a comment. I may enter you twice if you say something nice about me. But don’t tell anyone else, we wouldn’t want to make anyone jealous. It’ll be our little secret. (wink, wink)
Bonnie and I enjoyed margaritas while Andy did not. She’s getting in shape for the lesbian cruise so we didn’t give her any crap about skipping the cocktail. Here’s how I made mine, mostly:
makes 2 drinks
1/4 cup tequila
1/3 cup Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
Quarter of an orange
Squeeze the limes into a small pitcher to make 1/2 cup juice. Squeeze in the quarter orange (you are just looking for a splash of it). Add the alcohol, stir and pour into rocks glasses filled with ice. Rim the glasses with coarse salt, if you like.
Here’s a link to where I stole the recipe: http://abeachhomecompanion.blogspot.com/2011/09/classic-margarita-from-scratch-youll.html
