Everything Smells Just Like Poke Salad by Linda Swain Bethea

First of all, it’s the title that caught my attention and also the man leaping over a fireplace. I’m curious as to what is a “Poke Salad”? If I’m correct a poke is a fish. Is it something akin to a tuna salad? I guess I’ll just have to read it and find out.

Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    That doesn’t sound very tasty. I don’t mean the book. The book is probably good. I haven’t read it. I meant the poke salad. They say it’s like an over oiled tuna.

    It’s akin to the American tuna fish salad. Poke is a very oily fish. It has a very distinctive odor. It kind of make the whole house smells. Mostly old people eat it, I don’t care much for it. My grandparents still eat it.
