Today, Linda Joyce joins me for a Tuesday teaser and cocktail.
It’s five o’clock somewhere…in the Bayou
Many thanks to Sandra. I appreciate this time to share with her and her readers.
There’s nothing more relaxing than kicking back with a good book and a cocktail in hand. Before we settle in, we need to gather the ingredients to ensure a tranquil time.
First the book: My debut novel, Bayou Born, is available at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Born-Fleur-Lis-ebook/dp/B00B9L1VAC/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1360022464&sr=1-9&keywords=bayou+born
The print release will be on April 12th through The Wild Rose Press http://www.thewildrosepress.com, and also Amazon.
Here’s a sneak peek at Bayou Born ~
Branna Lind’s self-esteem rests at the bottom of the Mississippi River. She canceled her “wedding of the decade,” though she isn’t saying why. She wants life on her own terms: no ready-made job in the family business, no safety net of close-knit kin, and no more betrayal.
College professor James Newbern prizes his bachelorhood. Experience has taught him beautiful women are high-maintenance trouble and Branna fits that type. He is happy to avoid her until the college vice president assigns him to mentor the newest hire—Branna.
Branna is on her way to a new life, but will the scars of the past send her running from love? If she doesn’t, will she convince James that she truly is his “type”?
You know what James seems to think of Branna, but if you’re a tad curios about what “type” I am, I hope you’ll stop by and see at my website: http://www.linda-joyce.com I hope you’ll share about what’s going on with you.

Now, we’re ready for cocktails. My favorite is a Bloody Mary. The BEST one I’ve very had was at the Miramar Beach Restaurant in Half Moon Bay, CA. Sadly, their in-house recipe is a closely guarded secret.
Here’s how I make mine~
6 oz Clamato Juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2-3 dashes hot sauce (I prefer Crystal Sauce for flavor.)
1 tsp of fresh horseradish (Add at your own risk.)
1/8 fresh lemon
1/8 fresh lime
1 shot of good quality Vodka
Shake Juice, Worcestershire, hot sauce, lemon juiced, and vodka together.
Pour over cracked ice in tall glass. Twist remaining 1/8 lime over drink. Stir with celery.
