Out of Darkness Playlist, Recipe, & Something You Should Know

             Out of Darkness has been available in all formats for about a week and a half now. It's doing wonderfully and I thank each and every person who has checked out and picked up copies of Out of Darkness. As always, I hope you are enjoying my book and if you have any questions or comments you are more than welcome to share them in the comments. 
             This week I decided I would share with my readers the playlist that inspired me while writing Out of Darkness and a recipe based on something Lizette and her family like to eat. On another note, I'm also going to share with you something I think you should know. 

Out of Darkness Playlist

“House on a Hill” The Pretty Reckless

Out of Darkness Inspired Recipe:
Chocolate Filled Beignets

You Will Need:
-1 Can Pillsbury Pizza Dough
-8 Mini Chocolate Candy Bars (Such as Hersheys)
-Oil for frying
-Powdered Sugar

1. Roll the pizza dough out on a cookie sheet lined in parchment (wax) paper, just enough that it's rectangular. Don't worry about rolling it thinner. 
2. Using a pizza cutter cut the dough lengthwise in four strips, then cut the dough widthwise in half. You should now have eight smaller strips. 
3. On one half of the strip, leaving about a 1/2 inch of space at the end, place one piece of chocolate on each strip. 
4. Fold the other half of the dough over the side with the chocolate and press around the edges to seal the chocolate inside. 
5. Heat the oil on medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated and a small test ball of dough turns golden brown, add the beignets in batches. I'd start with 2 or 3 at a time. 
6. Fry the beignets on one side 3-4 minutes or until the side begins to turn golden brown. Carefully flip the beignets using a skimmer, tongs, or spatula and fry on the other side.
7. Remove beignets from oil and transfer to a plate covered in paper towels to drain excess oil. Immediately sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. With beignets there is no such thing as too much sugar!
8. Once all beignets are fried dig in and enjoy! 

and here's...
Something You Should Know:
Have you noticed all the signed books I've been posting pictures of (like the ones below) and wondering where I got them?

Most are from Good Choice Reading's Apollycon 2016 Virtual Signing and now they're holding another virtual signing for Sarah J. Maas's upcoming release "A Court of Mist and Fury!" I just ordered my copy and you can do the same here: http://www.goodchoice

I've ordered from this company before and I have had a wonderful experience with them. The books arrive quickly and you get a tracking number to keep track of their arrival. This signing is open to the US and International!
