Chocolatouring on a virtual book tour

Doreen Pendgracs

Known throughout the Web as the "Wizard of Words", I've been a freelance writer since 1993. I'm currently researching and writing volume II of "Chocolatour: A Quest for the World's Best Chocolate". Volume I was published in September, 2013.

    Best of luck! :-)

  6. Your stories of traveling the world in search of chocolate is so interesting. Have you thought about doing a story from a child’s perspective? We have a picture of our son, who crawled on top of some furniture to get at the box of chocolate. His chocolate covered face is hilarious and he will never live it down – cause we won’t let him.

      Hi Neva: Never having had children, writing from a child’s perspective doesn’t come naturally to me. And I think the fact that I’m aiming at the higher-end chocolate market who appreciates the quality of fine artisanal chocolate kind of rules out most readers under the age of 25. But there will definitely be times when I hit an attraction or venue that is targeted at children, and I’ll have to reach deep inside to bring out the child in me. You’re so fortunate to have your grand child(ren?) to keep you young! :-)

    What a wonderful idea to have a virtual book tour!

    It’s a logical thing to do, just haven’t thought of it for the simple reason that I don’t need to do one:-).

    Wish you the best of luck with it!
