Better than . . .? Contest!

Jar of "better than sex chocoate sauce"

In The Name of Science

I am giving this away. Along with a copy of My Darkest Passion, your choice of format — print, Kindle or ePub. The chocolate sauce is from Patisserie Angelica, which I suspect may well be the best bakery in America. As you can see, it’s called “Better than Sex Hot Fudge Sauce.” The winner will have to let me know if he/she agrees.

The winner will be chosen at random from among the commenters on this post who followed the instructions. Contest closes midnight Pacific, August 9, 2013 — meaning comment before then. International OK.

  1. My favorite thing to do on a rainy day is to curl up with hot chocolate/hot tea, a fleece blanket, a fire, a purring kitty and a stack of good books to read :).

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love to sit on the porch during a thunderstorm and watch the wind bend the trees, track lightening, and feel the spray on my face. On one hand it’s humbling, and on the other it’s invigorating to to be that close to so much power.

  3. Melissa says:

    My favorite sensation in the world is being led in Argentine Tango. A good lead for me, and for all, is so special and so rare. That’s my favorite thing!

    My favorite thing to do is to drive over to the ocean with a loaf of sourdough bread, a tub of butter, a package of salami, a few dark chocolate caramels and a good book – and just sit and listen to the seagulls and waves, pig out on fattening food, and ENJOY LIFE!

  9. My favorite thing is a big stack of books to read!

  17. kimmyl says:

    I love reading a book and sipping tea in my favorite rocker with a creme brulee candle burning.

  18. Kathleen says:

    My favorite thing to do after a bad day is to re-read part or all of a “comfort read.” Strangely, the “comfort” is in the familiarity and the favorable resolution of the plot and characters, not necessarily the happiness of the characters or beauty of the book. For me the most effective “lift” for the depressed mood the bad day engenders usually is a scene where the hero(ine) succeeds in something, such as Miles Vorkosigan bluffing his way through dissuading a pilot from suicide and pledging his inherited, highly radioactive real estate to get financing for a space ship early in Lois McMaster Bujold’s The Warrior’s Apprentice.

  19. Pam P says:

    My favorite ice cream is Friendly’s Forbidden Chocolate. Thinking now how yummy it would taste with this sauce on top of it – the more chocolate the better!

  20. Lindsey E says:

    My favorite fruit is a peach and my favorite berry is raspberry. But I do not like chocolate with my fruit so any sauce would go on ice cream.

  21. Larisa says:

    My favorite food is dark chocolate!

  22. Keridweyn says:

    I like to sit on the porch of my home with my Love and watch the rain come across the lake. Then to watch my children dance in the rain. It is refreshing to see a child that has no cares in the world.

  23. kate r says:

    I have all of your books, but I don’t have any chocolate. I am sad now.

  24. Limecello says:

    Hmmm my current favorite alcohol is vanilla vodka. Delicious and versatile. Good even with Dr Pepper or any number of fruity drinks.
    Favorite ice cream is always Jeni’s.

    I can’t think of many other favorites :X I’m a bit too wishy washy. Oops.

  25. Jikie says:

    My favorite notebooks are those with no lines because then no one can dictate how you write in it.

  26. Jeanna says:

    My favorite eye candy is Antonio Banderas & Johnny Depp ;~}
