Greetings, adventurers! Happy Mushroom and Anchovy Monday!… on Wednesday. I had every intent to get this out on Monday, but I’m finally starting to recover from a nasty sinus infection and, let’s face it, life is kind of chaos. So, without any further ado...I’m so sorry for the silence over the past few months. Between moving, the pregnancy, the holidays, birthdays, illness, and now being on leave, everything has been really chaotic. Our due date for our newest family member is approaching swiftly—less than a month away, in fact—so now we’re getting everything ready. It’s going to continue to be a very busy time!The good news is that I have a bit of an update for you. After reaching out to the lovely folks at Inkshares in the new year, I have been informed that they are only a few months away from Mushroom and Anchovy’s production kickoff. This is very exciting news. I hope to have a true update for you in a few months, but for now, at least we have this!We moved to our new home back in November and have been settling ever since. The cats are very fond of this place and have been happily bonding. I won’t go into too much detail, but if you’re curious for some shots of our updated kitchen and other points of interest in our home, please head over to my Instagram or you can watch live from my Twitch channel, where I do cooking and baking 3x a week (for the time being)—in fact, we’re having an on-stream baby shower this coming Sunday the 8th, and we’d love to see you there! I also would like to add that I participated in Vlogmas this year--that and more content can be found over on my YouTube. I’ve also recently partnered with the amazing folks over at Wild Cherry Spoon Co., who make beautiful artisan kitchenware. Very exciting times!I have been pushing myself to produce 2 blog posts a month—one recipe, one prose—over on my website www.thepracticalescapist.ca. Hope to see you there!I won’t update again until production has kicked off, now that I have some news. I hope you’re looking forward to an exciting 2020 with me! May your travels be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,K. M. Cooper
Sorry for the lack of #MushAnch Monday this month--and sorry in advance for the lack thereof for next month, as well. There is a reason for this. Things have gotten very busy around here in the past few weeks, and that’s about to ramp up, because after a year of trying, we’re finally moving!
I don’t have any updates for you on the book front as I continue to wait patiently for news, myself. It’s my hope that this beautiful time of year finds you well, and I hope to be back and updating regularly again in December.
Thanks for your patience!
May your travels be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,
K. M. Cooper
Oops... I did it again. Mushroom and Anchovy Monday is a Tuesday again this month. I apologize!
I have no updates today, so I’m going to keep it exceedingly brief! Check out my YouTube June Roundup (and maybe hit the "like" and "subscribe" buttons while you’re there) for all the stuff I’m doing this month! And, you can join me tonight on Twitch for some culinary shenanigans! 8:30 PM ADT! Hope to see you there!
Until next time, may your travels be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting, K. M. Cooper
I made... a small error. You see, I’m supposed to do #MushAnchMonday on Monday. This is Tuesday. Oops. Sorry, everyone! Honestly, it completely slipped my mind.
I have no new updates on the book, but I did, however, get the opportunity to read from it last week at an event at Cafe Cognito here in Moncton. I read excerpts from both chapters 1 and 4 of Mushroom and Anchovy, as well as a touch of my poetry. The reading went well--it was nice and intimate, with a small cafe that was filled with attentive people. If you were there, thank you so much for showing up! I hope to be able to do more events like this in the future.
As always, I have been extremely busy with my Twitch channel, on which I will be streaming 3 times a week for the next month. Tonight is one of those days, by the way--I’m making vegan marshmallows and yogurt tonight at 8:30 PM ADT and I’d absolutely love for you to join me! I’ve become an editor and regular contributor to a Twitch cooking newsletter called Cookery Nation, which has made for a fun combination of my writing and editing and cooking skills!
I have a full monthly roundup over on YouTube, by the way, if you’re curious about my many monthly projects and happenings. I have a convention appearance coming up and will be sharing the promotional materials on my Facebook page once they’ve arrived.
The weather here has been bright and sunny for the past three days. The grass is getting greener and flowers are everywhere. Happy May, all, and I’ll talk to you in June.
May your adventures be fraught with wonder and just enough peril to keep them interesting,
