A Thanksgiving Letter – From Scarlett

Scarlett  (From It Was All The Daisy’s Fault) took over! You see, Greta owner of Peppermint Sweet, left her in charge over the holidays. She believed Cole “settled” her a bit. Oh, ye, of so much faith! Scarlett will always be herself no matter what, and I believe this Thanksgiving Day letter proves she cannot be tamed.

Hi Peppermint Sweeties,
Happy Thanksgiving! It’s me, Scarlett. The woman who makes all your dreams come true, i.e. spins magic via an espresso machine.

Greta and I would like to thank you for your loyalty and patronage over the last few years. We’ve had a blast sating your sugar cravings and caffeine needs at our little bake and coffee shop—and that’s all thanks to you.

Also a big thank you to all who voted for Peppermint Sweet in the Moorsville Best Of list put out by the town’s City Paper. We would like to congratulate Starbucks, which came in first. Truly. They keep us on our toes. I mean, they don’t have a bistro table in a floor-to-ceiling, front window whose chairs have heart-scrolled backs–and which have seen a dozen marriage proposals over the years. They also don’t have Chloe’s magic pies. Or, my cake decorating skills. But we don’t mind them winning. Really.

Now. On to Peppermint Sweet’s holiday menu! You have parties to plan, catering to order, and wishes to make (remember Chloe’s magic pies).

Chloe’s pie menu has been up for six hours and you all scare me at how sugar-addicted you are. She does have a limit, however, so click here to order. Like, today. Seriously.

After all, you heard about Phoebe and Henry, right? I am not going through what happened between those two lovebirds who fought over the last fruitcake last season. It’s how they met but fighting over a dessert is just sad even if ours will turn your ideas about fruitcake around.

(Waving to Phoebe and Henry who got married last month. We catered. Yes, fruitcake was on the menu.)

Anyway, don’t be them. A wedding coming out of such a confrontation is not guaranteed. Even if you consume an entire cherry love pie made by Chloe.

Instead, be you.

Order on time.

Then get in here because I will sell anything that isn’t picked up and I hate it when you get all sad and we’ll end up back in the kitchen baking together because no way will I let you walk away empty-handed.

(Kudos to Mrs. Stevens who at least brought wine to our late night bake-a-thon when we ran out of the red velvet cupcakes she had to have for an eventSome of them even got frosted before I passed out.)

PLACE HOLIDAY ORDERS HERE. In advance. Really.

Love and Kisses,
Greta, Scarlett, and Chloe

Ways to Read for Free

And still support your favorite authors!

I’ve been seeing a number of conversations around free books lately — or about returning them after they’ve been read. I’m not here to get into any controversy whatsoever. I would, however, like to share some ways you can read for free and still support your favorite authors.

1. Check out books from the Library. If you don’t want to visit one or read a physical book, dd you know there is an ebook and audiobook library app called Libby? Here’s a short video on how to use it!

2. Join ARC teams. Arc teams are a huge win for both author and reader! You get a book (before anyone else) in exchange for an honest review on a retailer site. You should feel free to reach out to your favorite authors at any time to see if there open spots on their teams. Click here if you’d like to join mine.

3. Sign up for Bookbub. If you’re not already getting daily Bookbub emails (or visiting their site), you may want to consider it. Many (MANY) books offered are free, including both best sellers and under-the-radar books.

4. Subscribe to my newsletter for my free serial stories. I also sometimes feature “free week” which means I’ll highlight a free book a day for a while week!

5. Subscribe to Kindle Unlimited or Kobo Plus. Okay, technically, this one isn’t free-free. But for $9.99 a month ($9.99 CAD for Kobo) you can read as many books as your can from their “libraries.” Authors are paid by number of pages read.

New FREE Kinky Read

Our house renovation saga continues. I now know why people move out during times like these. Construction dust, noise (jack hammers are LOUD, ya’ll), more dust and more noise makes for an interesting writing environment.

Also, microwaveable food is highly over-rated, especially if you have COVID, which we both did. I know. First world problems. But can someone bring me real food?

On the good news front, writing has commenced. In my email newsletter, get a FREE serial, titled Master R, an Elite Doms of Washington kinky short.

If you haven’t been getting it don’t worry! I include a link to the previous chapters with every new one in the newsletter so you can easily catch up.
