The Secret to a Perfect Latke is Back!
My contract was up on my OmniLit bestselling ebook The Secret to a Perfect Latke, so I decided to take the plunge, create a cover for it, and upload it to Amazon!
If you've been wondering what happened to the funny story about Noah coming out live on national television, here it is:
Noah has never been on TV before, but he dreams of having his own cooking show one day. When he's asked to help a gourmet chef prepare latkes for a Hanukkah segment on the Sunny and The Bear show, his family is proud but suspicious. Sunny and The Bear is a "lifestyle" show that's popular among straight women and hosted by gay men. What's more, the guests on this show have an uncanny tendency to come out of the closet live on national television...
An OmniLit bestselling comedy short from LGBTQ Young Adult author Foxglove Lee!
Read a Sample:
“You must be new to the show,” said the curvy blonde with a head full of ringlets. “Don’t worry too much. Just focus on Phil and Sunny. Try to forget about the millions of people watching from home.”
“Millions?” Noah’s throat ran dry. “It can’t be millions.”
The blonde woman shrugged. “I don’t know -- millions, thousands, whatever.”
Noah kept checking his watch even though there was a clock in the Green Room. He didn’t trust it -- time couldn’t possibly move so slowly. He was getting so agitated his insides were itchy. He wished he could reach inside his skin and scratch.
And then, out of the clear blue sky, Sunny walked into the Green Room with Phil “The Bear” following close behind. Sunny threw his hands up in the air and cried, “We’re heeee-eeeere!”
The women and Chef Troy did the same and shouted, “We’re queeee-eeer!”
Everybody laughed, leaving Noah feeling stunned and out of touch as the guys did their “How’ve you been?” rounds with everyone they knew. And then they got to Noah. The Bear shook his right hand while Sunny shook his left.
“What’ve we got here, Phil? Looks like fresh meat!”
“Oh, I’m not very… meaty.” What a stupid thing to say, but everybody laughed so it must have been funny. “I’m Noah. I’m helping Chef Troy make latkes.”
