Tara Nina's News
     Hello to everyone, especially the Cursed MacKinnons Fans!  I'm sorry I haven't been more active with this newsletter. Life has gotten in the way. I promise to try harder to keep in touch. According to my files, the last time I sent a newsletter was 1 year ago.  There's been so much that's happened. The Cursed MacKinnons series has another release coming titled: Cursed and Crazy. For all you fans who've been so patiently waiting for Aiden's story, it's in the hands of my editor at Ellora's Cave Publishing.

     I got extremely lucky to be included with several wonderfully talented authors in an anthology titled: Alien.  The book I placed in this anthology is titled: Escape. I'm hoping it will be the first of more Sci-Fi novels about these terrific Paoni Warriors, Shia and Kal.

     Wishing Everyone a Fabulous Day!
                                 Tara Nina

Attention Cursed MacKinnons Fans                                               

                       Coming Soon Book 6
                   Aiden's Story
Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place...
Stone by day, man by night, it's a curse that takes a little
bit of crazy and a whole lot of love to conquer. 

     I'm sharing a recipe that I hope everyone will enjoy. It's my
daughter's favorite cookies and since there's a chill in the air, it's becoming
baking season at my house.

KC's Chocolate Thumbprints
Dough~ 1/2 cup of butter, 2/3 cup of sugar, 1 egg separated, 2 tablespoons of milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 cup of self-rising flour, 1/3 cup of baking cocoa, 1 cup of chopped walnuts
Creamy Center~ 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar, 1 tablespoon of softened butter, 2 teaspoons of milk, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 bag of chocolate Kisses (unwrapped).

Dough~ Mix butter, sugar, egg yolk, milk & vanilla until creamy. Gradually add cocoa and flour to the mixture. Blend into a stiff batter. Cover bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge. Roll into balls. Place chopped walnuts on a paper plate.
