characterinterviewgraphic

Good morning, all, and welcome to my stop on the GRAHAM’S DELICACIES blog tour!

I’m so honored to host an interview today with Emilie and Alex, the two nonbinary bakers in Em Ali’s short stories collection, Graham’s Delicacies! Em and Alex were two of my favorite characters in this book, so I jumped at the chance to talk with them!

Now, before we get into the interview, I’m going to quickly share the blurbs for the three stories, and then we’ll get down to it! And be sure to keep on scrolling past the end of the interview to see Em Ali’s bio as well as some additional information about the collection!

Saccharine

Jen goes to work, agonizes over college, and looks forward to the stolen moments in the kitchen, where she can watch Emilie bake love into every donut, cake, and brownie. Their delicate friendship takes a step towards a budding romance. But will Jen’s impulsiveness help their romance surviving its first hurdle?

Delectable

James has never been kissed but he wants to, especially by Sam, who he can’t talk to without turning into a little jerk, and who is made of all the good stuff. Will James’ insecurity in his inexperience ever allow him to make the move to kiss the boy?

Ravenous

Alex won’t let some foodie with a video camera bash their beloved bakery, even if it means they have to be petty. Except they’re nowhere ready for Yujin, the one who got away, and the one attempting to woo them. Will Alex’s second impression of Yujin let them see the sincerity in the bashful king.

Domino: Most people have phone numbers in little black books…

Zavier: Ray only needs my number, if he wants a good time…

Ray: *blushes* Hey! Phones are for phone numbers. And there’s nothing little about my black book, sheesh. But yeah, there’s always new stuff in the works. Plus rehearsing for touring and all that.
