I have some exciting news!
In a strange twist of fate, I heard of a local soap maker through the local library. Always up for cross promotional opportunities, I contacted the owner and discussed having some of her wonderful soaps for the raffle baskets for book signings.
I met with Crescent Mountain Soap owner Lenea last week over an awesome lunch and we came up with some very interesting blends to represent Donald and Colin. Let's just say sandalwood is a given :)
Even more exciting is that she will be teaching me how to make soap!
Why is this exciting? RESEARCH!
I am researching and plotting out the second and third books and handmade herbal soaps will be introduced. Kat and Jess are branching out!
Even better still, she gave me some soaps to try out. Let me tell you the Cinnamon Clove is my favorite so far! There is a sandalwood vanilla that I'll be using next and a Woodsy one that smells divine. My office smells wonderful, I can't wait to sit and write in there surrounded by the scent of patchouli and sandalwood.
Like I said, we have come up with some interesting blends for Donald and Colin but would love some input on Kat and Jess.
What do YOU think? Lemon? Mint? Amber? Let me know!
Oh, and for those of you that have already read The Silver Cord:
Team Donald or Team Colin?
