Celebrating 5000 Readers of Hawt Flash

We hit a big one this week, you guys!!!!! According to Publishers Weekly, an average book published by a professional publisher sells only 3,000 copies over its entire lifetime. This week, Hawt Flash, an independently published book, crossed the 5,000-copy threshold in just one year, far surpassing the typical 100 copies that indie books sell. I am incredibly grateful and extend a huge thank you to you, my amazing readers, for helping me achieve this remarkable milestone.

Currently Enjoying: This Dippity DO-DA-DAY!

It's summer on a plate! To Make: Warm Boursin cheese and spread it out on a plate. Add quartered cherry tomatoes, snips of fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic syrup. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips. Special thanks to my friend Andrea for sharing this recipe—I'm absolutely hooked on it!
