So I'm reading a novel, minding my own business, enjoying it, when what should appear? Yes, donuts.
Specifically, on page 164 of Allison Winn Scotch's new novel, The One That I Want, a character enters the scene carrying a box of Dunkin Donuts.
What a magnificent moment. It's like she's writing directly to ME.
Okay, there are further extenuating circumstances here.
I first discovered Allison Winn Scotch through her entertaining presence on Twitter. Then I discovered her informative blog. And I then checked out her first novel from the library and, when the character spent time watching Price is Right at novel's beginning - which bookended beautifully with a Price is Right mention at the end - I knew I'd found a great author. So then I ended up tricking her into sending me an advance copy of her latest novel. Imagine my delight when I opened it to find the GREATEST INSCRIPTION EVER.
Why do you not own this novel? Go and buy it RIGHT NOW.
And get yourself a half dozen donuts to tide you over.
