In the midst of Autumn beauty, my mind has turned toward Winter as I put the last touches on my new e-book, A Crown of Candles: How to Throw a Fabulous Lucia Party. Now you may be thinking, Yuletide in October?? And I have to say, I know, I know! I hate it myself when Christmas decorations go up in the stores before we’ve even celebrated Halloween.
But . . . if you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know about the legendary Lucia Parties that my circle throws each December, and you know that we start planning the party in October. So . . . it’s time, even if it feels out of season. You may be one of the many people who asked me to write a handbook on how we create this unique celebration. Well, I’ve finally done it, and I have to say I’m pretty thrilled with how it turned out.
I’m still putting together the companion website (oh, did I mention you’ll have access to a secret Lucia Party website when you buy the ebook?) but I promise you it won’t take long. In the meantime, I’ve put together a couple of excerpts from the book that you can download right now — and one of them is the recipe for the most-requested, most decadent chocolate cream peppermint candy in the Sweet Room!
I’ll have another really cool Lucia giveaway for you in a couple of days, so be on the lookout for it (you’ll be able to listen to this one!) . . .
