I mean, red beans and rice? Chess pie? Shrimp and grits? I guess half of Brooklyn is country.  I’m here for it. Let me find a good spot for gizzards nearby and watch what happens. Read more

I don't know why he is ashamed, that's good eating. I got 24 from the list because most of the foods are classic Southern and even Caribbean cuisine like souse. I've lived in cities pretty much all my life, but have always eaten country good because it ain't beneath us.

Also chicken & dumplings? That’s eastern European to me. The Polish half of my family had that. Read more

Deviled eggs are definitely not country. Neither are tomato sandwiches, fried bologna, souse or chicken livers. I wouldn’t count Hot Browns either. It’s a regional dish but Louisville, where it was invented, is a pretty good sized city.

Cajun. It was very similar to a fried chicken leg but I was six & frogs are cute so I wasn't a fan.

Only 6 for me, but that’s not surprising since I am a Northern city-dweller. I’m assuming the poke salad is not the poke I’m familiar with (from having relatives in Hawaii)...

I got 21 and I’m not ashamed. My mother’s side of the family is super southern so I’ve had a lot of these. I made burgoo a few nights ago and make it regularly. My husband thought it was going to be “burger-goo” and was weirdly excited and kind of sad when I served it to him.

I do not think I have ever read a romance novel (mostly b/c, if I read it, it must not be a romance novel - gawd, anyone familiar with how Sci-Fi handled ‘romance’...just NO) and I loved this article. I followed what links I could (me and twitter do not communicate well) and was fascinated by how it worked its Read more

Psst, I’m part of the RWA, and I wrote about it here, with links to the people who are involved,and my twitter also shows a pretty good timeline of how the board of the online suspense chapter, KOD, essentially decided to dismantle the chapter rather than put out a statement taking a stand against racism and Read more

None of this surprises me. My wife and are friends with a couple of RWA members, and were friends with another. As writers ourselves (non-romance) we’ve been to a handful of RWA events with our RWA friends and there is an odd sort of toxic pleasantness that the writers seem to exhibit towards one another. The way they Read more

The weird sideshow in this is Damon’s husband Geoff who was all over twitter defending Damon over the Dreamspinner mess. He says he’s a federal forensic agent and charges RWA members a lot to attend his workshops. His credentials do not seem to have been vetted. He yelled at somebody on twitter in September who Read more
