Lori Foster and Dianne Castell organized a cookbook with recipes from over 90 of your favorite authors and some from familiar readers and family.
Lori's letter to readers from 2007
As an annual "thank you to readers and authors alike, Dianne Castell and I have organized a June "Reader & Author" event in Ohio. We have a great turnout with lots of authors, editors, agents, and readers. We do a fabulous raffle with proceeds going to worthy organizations. It's a fun, casual time for everyone to visit, share a love of books, and help others.
In addition to that, my reader group, Lori Foster Bookjunkeys, has been hard at work doing a "troop project." Through generous donations and the organizational finesse of our fabulous volunteer, Laurie Damron, we buy and ship fun, heartwarming, and sometimes necessary items to our beloved troops.
This cookbook is our way of furthering our contribution. Over 90 authors, and a handful of dedicated readers, have offered up their favorite recipes for you. All initial proceeds will go toward the "troop project," and should proceeds exceed our expectations, other charitable organizations will be chosen.
Thank you for doing your part to help us honor our brave soldiers, and others in need.
