When I started the First Draught Drink of the Month feature, I had every intent to alternate between beer and cocktails each month (fair coverage for all). Except now it’s October, and per the rotation it’s time to feature a cocktail, except, what about all those pumpkin beers …
I know, I know, there’s pumpkin everything these days and it can be a bit much. But I’ve always been a huge fan of a nicely spiced pumpkin beer. A phenomenon that well pre-dates pumpkin flavored Milano cookies, pumpkin hand soap, pumpkin potato chips and yes, even the hallowed Pumpkin Spice Latte.
So this month, while Alexis Anne and Julia Kelly (as her alter ego Vivienne Thorne) share all their amazing knowledge about writing serials, I’ll be sitting back, sipping a lovely fall brew. Serials are sort of trendy right now, just like all things pumpkin, but to stand the test of time you’ve got to create a well-crafted story meant to be delivered in small “sips”. And just like a good pumpkin ale, Alexis’ and Vivienne’s serials are perfectly spiced!
See you this Tuesday, October 6, at 8:30 PM EST to chat serials and sip pumpkin beer!
