Battered to Death Giveaway

On Tuesday, September 24, my latest book in the Daphne Martin cake decorating series--Battered to Death--was released. Yay!!!! [Kermit arms] Would you like to win a copy? Read on! [Marion, if you win, I will draw you a "fabulous CACK" (have you seen Father of the Bride?!)]

I have a funny story about a drawing of a "fabulous CACK." Once when I was asked to speak with a group of kids, I was reminded of how very precious children are. I told them how it took many people to make a book: the writer, the editor, the publisher, and the cover artists. I took a dry erase marker and did my "rendering" of the cake and the cat on the cover of Murder Takes the Cake. Some immediately said my drawing was good. Maybe it wasn't bad to a five-year-old. I showed them the real cover and said, "But this one is better, right?" A girl on the front row whispered, "A little bit." I hugged her. :D

To win a copy of Battered to Death, leave me a comment (and don't forget to add your email address) telling me the color of the frosting just before the book cover in the final frame of the trailer below. On Monday, I'll put the number of comments into the Random.org number generator and have it give us a winner! Good luck!
