Chickity Check It! Fellow North Shore Blogger Consortium Member Jane Ward Publishes “The Mosaic Artist”

Jane writes-

Food and Fiction blog followers already know that my latest novel, THE MOSAIC ARTIST, is published and ready to be read. 
For other friends, this may be news.  Here is a link to the blog post that describes the journey from idea to manuscript to novel:

I’d love for you to pick up a copy, read it, and let me and other readers know what you think.  One advance critical review is in and it is positive: http://wp.me/PpXh4-MP
I’d also be eternally grateful for the faith you have in me and my work if you would pass along the word about THE MOSAIC ARTIST.  Your word-of-mouth recommendation to networks of family, friends and coworkers is powerful.  If you know or belong to a book group, the group might consider reading TMA.  I have spoken to book groups in the past, and would love to do so in the future.
The book is available on line through Amazon (print and Kindle formats): http://www.amazon.com/Mosaic-Artist-Jane-Ward/dp/1453860045/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1303222902&sr=1-1
and through Create Space: https://www.createspace.com/3488870
and, for local folks, through Jabberwocky Bookshop (Newburyport) and Bertram and Oliver Books (Amesbury).  If you live outside the Merrimack Valley area but still prefer to shop in indie book stores, feel free to ask your favorite shop to stock the book.  Ask for it by name, author, and ISBN (9-781453-860045).
I have asked a lot of you, my friends.  In return I offer you my sincerest thanks for your friendship and support.

Come Mock Me

This afternoon (as long as I get out of work in time) I’ll be moderating a Food Bloggers  Summit at the Rockport Harvest Fest.

The Food Bloggers Summit was put together by Heather Atwood.

Food Bloggers Summit:  4:30 PM An open discussion among local food bloggers, featuring Abby Cahill O’Brien of 5thjoy, Heather Atwood of Food for Thought, Jane Ward of Food and Fiction, Kristen Nyberg and Jill Rose of North Shore Dish.  Moderated by your boy Joey of Good Morning Gloucester.

I’m not really sure who would want to listen to any of us talk about food or blogging but if you wanna come with a case ‘o tomatas and start hurling them in my direction it might make for a more interesting event.  :)

It’s going to take place on T-Wharf.  Just look for the big huge tent.

Anyway if you are coming to Rockport Harvest Fest today (which you should) stop by the tent around 4:30 and don’t forget your tomatoes.

Honesty In Food- Chickity Check It! Author Jane Ward’s Food and Fiction

When reading and looking at Author Jane Ward’s Food and Fiction Blog there is one thing that strikes me immediately and that is the honesty in her food.

Not overly dressed or overly prepared, her dishes are simple and elegant and let the gorgeous beauty of nature’s bounty tell the honest story.

Chickity Check Out her Blog Here

When I had first met Jane it was at The Market Restaurant At Lobster Cove when we had a North Shore Bloggers dinner and true story I didn’t recognize her at the table because I was expecting someone much older from her twitter pic that she had at the time.  (Good job on the new pic Jane. Much better)

you can follow her on twitter as well- @authorjane
