Off to the side is a brilliant red and white Follower Badge belonging to Katharine Weber. It is the image of her book cover (on the left) of her latest novel, True Confections, which was published January 5th, 2010... and has already garnered a very tasty review from NPR Her blog, Staircase Writing, is one of my fav go-tos on my bloggy-bloggy list, so there is no excuse for me not trumpeting her pub date earlier. But do visit her blog for candy-lore, "staircase moments" and book-tour reports. And I'm sure you'll be tempted as I am to snag her book, too. It looks delectable. Like chocolate.
