My aunts always refused to call stuffed eggs, deviled eggs because they were pretty sure that would make the devil come hang out in their kitchen.
Nobody wants the devil in their kitchen.
My mom thought this was nonsense. She also thought stuffed eggs required relish or pickles and putting lettuce or a tomato on top was sinful and that’s what would make the devil come to your kitchen.
And there you have their relationship all wrapped up in an egg. Oh! The aunts were pro-Coke and my mom was all Pepsi all the time. That might help envision the situation.
Anyways, I made the eggs and hopefully the ghosts of my aunts and the ghost of my mom are bickering over it right now. 🙂
Why would you ruin a good egg with a tomato? Hold on while I pick it off.
All eggs are good eggs. Thank you.
I love everyone. The end. No, also I love these eggs.
WRITING AND OTHER NEWS
IN THE WOODS – READ AN EXCERPT, PREORDER NOW!
My next book, IN THE WOODS, appears in July with Steve Wedel. It’s scary and one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Buzz Books for Summer 2019. There’s an excerpt of it there and everything! But even cooler (for me) they’ve deemed it buzz worthy! Buzz worthy seems like an awesome thing to be deemed!
You can preorder this bad boy, which might make it have a sequel. The sequel would be amazing. Believe me, I know. It features caves and monsters and love. Because doesn’t every story?
HEAR MY BOOK BABY (AND MORE) ON PATREON
On February first, I launched my Patreon site where I’m reading chapters (in order) of a never-published teen fantasy novel, releasing deleted scenes and art from some of my more popular books. And so much more. Come hang out with me! Get cool things!
WHAT IS PATREON?
A lot of you might be new to Patreon and not get how it works. That’s totally cool. New things can be scary, but there’s a cool primer HERE that explains how it works. The short of it is this: You give Patreon your paypal or credit card # and they charge you whatever you level you choose at the end of each month. That money supports me sharing my writing and art and podcasts and weirdness with you.
