Cooking Up Stories

Lucky Bat Books Editors Collaborate on Cooking Up Stories:

Favorite Recipes from the Oregon Writers’ Network

Edited and compiled by Lucky Bat Books Managing Editors Dayle A. Dermatis and Louisa Swann, Cooking Up Stories gathers together favorite writers’ recipes, from deadline crunch munchies to celebratory feasts. With an introduction by Dean Wesley Smith and including a recipe by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Oregon Writers’ Network mentors and lead instructors.

About the Book:

Writers live in a strange world — they tend to sit at their computers and make things up all day. Often, especially during the moments when writing in “the zone,” life outside the story ceases to exist.

But even writers have to eat.

From Procrastinator’s Bread to Deadline Chicken — come along for an inside look at some of the top recipes that help keep writers writing!*

Everyone who worked on this cookbook, including Lucky Bat Books staff, donated their time, and 100% of the proceeds will go to Beach Bark, an organization of animal lovers who work with the Central Coast Humane Society for the benefit of animals in north Lincoln County, Oregon.

Includes story excerpts and writerly musings
