Happy holidays. If you ordered a collector's edition of The LOCH or a second edition of MEG: Generations, we expect both titles to arrive from our printers by the second week in December, at which time Tim Schulte and his elves will pack them and ship them out so they arrive before X-Mas. Once they are en route, you will receive a shipping and tracking notice. All of The LOCH hardbacks were signed by me. Some of the signatures are not easy to read. Unfortunately, Parkinson's Disease affects my hand control ... my apologies if you get a sloppy one. I assure you, it was penned by me. There are still a few LOCH hardbacks due to the print overruns, so if you are looking for a special gift that will go up in value (only 750 printed, the movie in development) I can't think of a better choice.

Recipe of the Month: Sheer Heaven Cheesecake Floof
This has been a family favorite for years! I made up the word "floof" and it is the right description for the pie filling. Hope you enjoy it! Patti Lisenbee (published as Taborri Walker)

Mix 3 large cream cheese (at room temp) with 1/3 cup milk and 1 ½ cup powder sugar until smooth. Drain 1 can fruit pie filling (whatever you desire) to separate fruit and thick liquid. Mix liquid and 1 small container Cool Whip with cream cheese to make Floof. Spread on pre-made graham cracker crust. Chill overnight. To make it fruitier, chop or mash all fruit extremely finely and mix in amount of your choice into floof before putting in pie shell

Triple Berry Floof:
3 cups mixed berries, 1-1/2 cup sugar, ¼ cup cornstarch. Cook over med heat until thickened, stir into floof. Can add extra cool whip for more floof if needed.

Chocolate Floof
Follow directions to make floof with cream cheese, milk, powder sugar, and cool whip; add 1 or 2 melted 5 oz Hershey's milk chocolate bars, depending on the depth of chocolate you want. Also, melt one more bar and drizzle across the top, run a knife through to "cut" lines into smaller pieces when set.
