It's Too Yummy Tuesday!

On select Tuesdays I share delicious recipes either inspired by my books or that are just plain delicious!

I've messed around with some brownie recipes off and on the past few months, and I think I've come up with the ultimate decadent treat.  Better yet, it starts with boxed mix as the base, so it's easy to do.

Caramel Butterfinger Brownies


1 box of brownie mix, batter prepped per package directions
60 caramels, unwrapped (or make a batch of caramel from this recipe)
2 Butterfinger bars
Powdered sugar

Just out of the oven..see caramel bubbling around the edges!

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Divide prepared brownie batter in half. Press one half into bottom of a 9" square cake pan. Bake for 6 minutes. While baking, melt caramels in microwave or over top of double boiler until smooth. Cool slightly. Crush Butterfinger bars into fine bits. (I've chopped them and run through the blender/food processor for just a few quick pulses.)

Pour caramel over bottom half of brownie; sprinkle evenly with Butterfinger bits. With remaining half of brownie batter, lay out on a surface and press/roll out into a square about the size of your pan. (This is so you don't make a mess trying to shape the batter into the pan on top of the caramel.) Set on top of the caramel/candy layer. Bake an additional 20 minutes until the top is done--it springs back when you press a finger on it and starts to pull away slightly from pan. Remove and let cool on a rack. Sprinkle with a generous layer of powdered sugar before slicing. (I like to do this through a sieve so it's sifted nicely.)

Stand back and prepare for these to be devoured before you can take a photo of the finished product. 

Makes 16-24 brownies, depending how large you slice them.

The fourth in a series of Weird Writing Tips that have helped me craft that wacky thing we call "fiction".

Write in Your Sleep

This is a tip I learned very early on in my career, and, I might add, completely by accident.

When I was new to fiction, I would do creative writing exercises on the fly to hone my skills. Whether I was in the car, sitting at work, or eating at a restaurant, I would challenge myself to describe the setting or make mental or literal notes about interesting people and conversations. As I am rather a dedicated sort, I found myself doing this A. Lot. After a few weeks or so of this constant mentality, my brain became programmed to stay in "writer mode" even when I was busy doing something else. Eventually, I realized that little machine in the corner of my mind would even crank away at night, while I was asleep.

 The weird tip is: Teach your brain to work out plot details and plan the next scene while you sleep.

Here's how to do this:

Get into the habit of spending that last few minutes before you drift off to sleep prepping for the next day's writing. Read what you've got outlined for the following day (if you're a planner). Think about where you left off. Imagine your next scene. Contemplate that sticky plot issue that you haven't figured out how to resolve. If you are between projects, invent a new character or dream up random title ideas.  In short, spend those few remaining moments loading up your brain with writing energy. Then go to sleep and let your subconscious mind go to work sorting out the info. You may soon start to find you wake up with a solid direction for your next scene, ways to resolve plot holes, new story ideas, and more. Keep a notepad beside your bed for sudden inspiration that you don't want to forget.

One nice bonus to this is that it gives a writer so many more hours in the day. When you can literally plot in your sleep, you're freeing up that many more waking hours for actually getting words onto the page.

Have fun, and have at it!

On select Mondays, I like to gab about writing or whatever's going on with me. For more gab, please join me on Twitter or Facebook. I love talking to people!

~~Warning: Adult content~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday.  

I'd been posting snippets from my Yule story the past couple of weeks, but I finished it. Now we're back to my bondage fantasy, Bound to Her Master.

When last we left off, Lord Stepanyan was facing some nerves about the performance he and his slave, Ti-Hana, were about to give at the slave games.  A chant from the crowd distracts him, and he goes outside to investigate.

Choose me, Ti-Hana.

The chanting was loud and insistent when Stepanyan stepped outside, and many signs were held aloft with the same message—all being wielded by slaves. His joo-hai’na had been of high interest among the nobles, but he hadn’t considered the fascination she might hold for other sex slaves—especially males. And with tonight being the celebration of the double full moons, the implication of that caused his lip to press together in a tight line.

Tonight, slaves would be encouraged to mingle with one another, not just as a social nicety, but for the purpose of sexual recreation. Choosing their partners and indulging whims without being in irons, without any of the constraints or restrictions imposed by their Masters, was an important occasion that helped keep slaves content in their service the rest of the year.

In all his preparation for the slave games, Stepanyan hadn’t given a single thought to that tradition. He and Ti-Hana did not have a typical Master-slave arrangement, after all. There was no reason to give her leave to frolic with strange men under the double full moons, but by law, he could not prevent it.

Then again, he was not required to press her into a celebration she had no knowledge of, either.

Hmm, what will Stepanyan decide to do about this tradition...tell her, or not?
