Chocolate Quotes

We're less than TWO WEEKS OUT from the release!!!

Last week we celebrated the upcoming release with fun anecdotes and trivia that are in the book. Today, it's time for chocolate quotes!

But first, a housekeeping item:

I have TWO cookbook signings scheduled for next week:

FRIDAY, October 1, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
BYU Bookstore

SATURDAY, October 2, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ladies Night at the Salt Lake Deseret Book

Important: I will be bringing samples to both signings.

I also have another EIGHT signings scheduled at area Costcos throughout October. I'll post the schedule for those soon.

Now for a few of the fun CHOCOLATE QUOTES found in Chocolate Never Faileth:

-I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process. It might not be true, but why take the risk?

-Man cannot live on chocolate alone. Woman can.

-Chocolate: Here today . . . gone today.

-For my birthday and Christmas, I’ll take anything in a size chocolate.

-Readers Digest, in one of their weight-loss articles, wrote that the average craving only lasts ten minutes. I find that mine last much shorter than that. I mean, really, how long does it take to get the wrapper off an Almond Joy? (From my good friend and hugely successful YA author, Janette Rallison)

-Ugh! They insulted chocolate! (My oldest daughter at the age of 9, on seeing a Verizon commercial about their new “Chocolate” cell phone, which [the nerve!] wasn’t even brown.)

-Many young girls make their first batch of fudge around the same time they kiss their first boy. They will remember the fudge.

You know what, you need to contact The Chocolate in Orem, and do a book signing there! It would be PERFECT! The Sassies are having a GNO there in October.

Wish I were in Utah. I'd come meet you in person...

Will you be coming down to the Costco in St. George? I would definitely come purchase the book and visit with you!

Cute! My favorite is the one that is listed on my FB profile by the Marquise de Sevigne from centuries ago . . . "But, you have no chocolate? My dear, how will you ever manage?"

Shelley said...

I sure wish we lived closer. Yum!

Heffalump said...

cute cute quotes
I loved the last one
Almond Joy's are my favorite

How cools would it be to be "famous" enough to have "signings" go girl.
Are you putting chocolate candy kisses on the table.??

p.s....thanks for visiting my daughters blog, you are sweet. I still don't have home service, I am "somewhere else" using the internet. DANG

I can't wait for your book release! My mouth is watering already.

Any chance I could do a book review for you, you know, whip up some of those recipes & do a blog review or something (hint hint, I know, I'm pushing my luck here, aren't I??)...

Wish I could be at the signings. The book sounds great and I look forward to reading it.
