News and Contest!

I've been promising myself that I would keep up on this blog and that I would do more to engage readers' attention. Today, June 1st, I'm following through on that promise.

First, the news: I've started another blog. This one will be strictly for recipes (and contests) and can be found here:
I'll be posting recipes from State of the Onion and Hail to the Chef, one at a time. I'll also add in a personal recipe here and there.

Second, the contest:
Presidential Trivia.
How apt, right?

This contest will run from today through the end of June. Everyone who answers correctly will have their names put in a hat. At the end of the month, I'll draw out the winner. He/she will receive his/her choice of one of my books.

Choices are:
Artistic License (trade pb)
Deadly Blessings (trade pb)
Deadly Interest (hardcover)
Dead Ringer - written with Michael A. Black (hardcover)
These Guns For Hire - (hardcover anthology. My short story from this volume won a Derringer Award)
State of the Onion (mass market pb)
Hail to the Chef (mass market pb)

Okay, ready for the question? I'll start with an easy one:

To which of our presidents is this quote attributed?:

"Far better it is to dare mighty things - to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure - than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

If you type your reply in the "Comments" section, everyone will see your answer.
So, instead, please visit my website: www (dot) julieahyzy (dot) com and send it to me from there. (Note the middle initial "a" in my website.)

Thanks and good luck!!

Theodore Roosevelt said it and I'd like either one of the white house chef books.

link for email on the website you gave isn't working so I'll give the answer her instead:

P.S. Loved State of the Onion.
