Eat, Drink, and Be Wary!

One final post for "Representative Images Week" here on the blog, wherein I am teasing you with pictures that have something to do with my book, IN A FIX. Not always precisely as depicted here, mind you. Remember, these pictures are representative.

In Monday's post, we found out my protag, Ciel Halligan, really gets around. Wednesday's post showed us some of the ways she does it. Today we'll get a preview of what she drinks and eats along the way. (Hey, a girl needs a little sustenance!)

CIEL'S SIPS:











CIEL'S NIBBLES:














Wow. That looks like Ciel must be eating and/or drinking ALL the time. Trust me, she's not. There IS actually a plot sandwiched *cough* in there somewhere.

What are your favorite foods? Drinks? If you're a writer, do you ever have your characters eat or drink anything you can't personally stand?

You tease ;)
I cannot believe you're writing a book. I so admire people who can write fiction!

Nah, I wouldn't feed my guests, or my characters, anything I wouldn't be willing to eat myself. Except one thing. My hubby eats pickled pigs feet. His choice. I'll buy 'em, but I won't eat those vile things! I do believe I'd be happy to eat and drink what your character's having, though.

My characters usually eat breakfast. And they drink a lot of tea. And maybe brandy. I'm not a big food person, believe it or not.

But man, those pastries with the whipped cream, and that chowder...
I am starving. Thanks Linda.

Most of the food looks great. I have characters eat, drink and do things I would never do. That is part of the horror genre though, so I think I'm cheating by answering. Horror characters eat some crazy things sometimes.

I like the looks of that martini! Yum!

My characters never eat or drink anything I can't stand. That statement is a bit of a cheat, though, because there's only one food in the world that I can't stand: black licorice.

All other foods/drinks fall somewhere in the spectrum between "will salivate uncontrollably at the thought of it" and "will eat/drink it if there's nothing better to be had".

I WANT that bubbly with the raspberries! Yum!

Love the tease.

I am strictly a teetotaller, but my characters drink the odd wine and knock back the odd whiskey or three!

Oh that all looks so delicious! I'm trying to diet right now, so this is torturing me a little :).

You know, I don't think my characters ever eat...

Yum, yum, yum, yum, YUM!
I'll take the whisky...
