I'm an amateur cake decorator (you know that if you've viewed my cake photographs!), and I've written a cozy mystery novel centered around Daphne Martin, a cake decorator. In conjunction with the book's release in October, I'm sponsoring a fun contest. Cake decorators can submit photos of some of their best work with a "love" theme to be considered for inclusion in an e-book. I think it would be cool if decorators spoke a little about themselves and/or their techniques, too. The e-book will be released on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2009, and will include a forward from "Daphne Martin" and will provide links to the decorators' sites and/or information about their shops. I know from experience how hard cake decorating is, and I want to showcase some of you talented decorators. I spoke to the publishers (Bell Bridge Books) about this, and they said they might even choose a photograph from the e-book for the cover of the next
book, tentatively titled "Dead Pan."
For more information, or to learn more about the e-book, please let me know. If you'd like to check out the novel a little bit before you make up your mind, you can find out more at http://www.gayletrent.com.
Thanks, guys! I hope to hear from some of you.
