Last year, Simon & Fig readers helped us pick a name for our Christmas anthology, Merry & Bright. This year, we’re asking for your help again with our cake anthology. Yep. That’s right. Four different stories all centered around cake! A delicious read, if I do say so myself. The anthology features stories by Sue Watson, funny and fabulous author of Fat Girls & Fairy Cakes, Younger, Thinner, Blonder, and Love, Lies and Lemon Cake; Cindy Arora, whose debut novel, Heartbreak Cake, has readers laughing and salivating; new author Joel Zlotnik, whose romantic, beachy tale will have the ladies positively swooning; and Lucie Simone who gives readers an inside glimpse into the glitz and glam (or lack thereof) in showbiz in Hollywood Ending and Picture Perfect. This new anthology promises to tempt readers with humor, style, romance, and the powerful aphrodisiac that is cake! But we need a title!
Leave a comment with your suggestion and the winning entry will get a free e-copy of the anthology when it releases November 7th, plus a $15 Amazon gift card!
For a little inspiration, below are the titles and descriptions of the four individual stories by author, most of whom you probably already know and love.
Cake Therapy by Cindy Arora – Single mom and journalist, Olivia, sets out to find romance with a little help from her friends, and lots of cake!
Aprez Vous by Lucie Simone – Success-driven Tara reunites with long lost love and baker extraordinaire, Jean Marc, over petits fours in Paris.
Heart-Shaped Secret of Raspberry Jam by Sue Watson – Cake enthusiast Milly meets her match in the kitchen, and other places, when new owners take over the Tea Rooms where she works.
Her Charms by Joel Zlotnik – Scott, mayor of a small seaside community, flirts with political suicide when he falls for new-in-town Nicole, an entrepreneur with a passion for cupcakes, and her latest venture proves a little too sexy for the sleepy beach town.
The deadline to enter your title suggestion is Wednesday, September 17th. The winning entry will be announced on Friday, September 19th. Good luck!
