Cats, Bacon and Tiaras: How to Own the Internet

By Sabrina York (Guest Blogger)

Okay. Let’s be honest. I do tend to be oblivious about anything that’s not connected to my current Work In Progress, and since I am almost always writing something, that means, most of the time, I am pretty oblivious.

When I was working on my latest release, Snow Angels, I had no idea of the internet subculture surrounding cats and bacon. I did not discover this until I started working on my media kit for the story and kerpow! One google search and I was inundated.

Who knew? Cats and bacon are hot!


I should not be surprised. I love them both. And they both feature in my steamy military hero romance…just not the way you would think! Let’s explore a couple inside secrets about Snow Angels:

THE BACON: If you’ve read anything I’ve written, you know the probability of bacon is high. I have something of an obsession for the stuff. If you don’t believe me, check this out: http://www.pinterest.com/sabrinayork/bacon/
In this story, I took it to a new level. The bacon actually serves as a character in the story. And certainly features in the plot twists. Without that bacon, Wade and Lyssa would have been doomed. (Doomed I tell you.) But then, isn’t that the way it always is with bacon?

INSIDE SECRET: Much bacon was consumed during the writing of this story. Okay. Not really a secret to those who know me.

THE CAT. I love cats because they don’t take any crap off anybody and they are funny as hell (but don’t tell them that—they are easily offended). Since Wade and Lyssa are trapped together in a snowbound cabin, I thought it would be fun to throw a dog…and a cat in the mix. That this cat is a bacon klepto only makes her more loveable. She is also a little chunky, so when she leaps onto the table to steal some bacon, the coffee sloshes. You can picture it, right?





FAVORITE LINE IN THE BOOK: Biby rounded the couch and parcoured off the coffee table up into the mantel. Bo, hard on the cat’s tail, but lacking those razor-sharp feline reflexes, skidded in the turn on the hardwood floor and plowed into Wade, knocking him over.

TRUTH: Cats do parcour. 
 

INSIDE SECRET: Biby is named after one of my street team members, whose icon is a white cat.

THE TIARA: Okay, there is no tiara in this book. I am just mentioning it because it is my emblem, and I occasionally give them away to readers and I happen to be doing a Snow Angels Tiara Giveaway and I thought you might be interested.

I hope you have enjoyed this peek inside Snow Angels! Be sure to check out all the Calendar Men and see if one of them lights your fire! (You need a lit fire to cook bacon, after all!)


SNOW ANGELS by Sabrina York

The last thing Wade Masters wants on his month-long getaway to his sister’s wilderness cabin is company. A wounded warrior, Wade is looking for complete isolation to deal with the tragedy of his life and his screaming guilt.

But company he gets, in the form of Lyssa Salk, a spunky, diminutive massage therapist. Who says she can talk to dead people.

Trapped together in the snowbound cabin, Wade and Lyssa have little else to do but help each other heal, spiritually, physically and sexually.

The last thing Katie expects—when she meets her friend Joy for a girls’ weekend in Vegas to celebrate her divorce—is an ambush. But Joy, determined to get Katie “back on the horse,” has submitted her profile with Madame Eve—who’s found her the perfect man.

Katie doesn’t want another man. She certainly doesn’t want or need confirmation that it’s her fault Mark could never satisfy her.
When Sebastian—scarred by the infidelity of his wife—overhears Katie’s confession, and the fact that she was faithful to her husband for ten years even though he never met her needs, he’s intrigued. More than intrigued. He’s determined to prove to this gorgeous, tempting, fascinating woman that she is not frigid. In fact, she is fierce.
