I’m writing a lot this week, working on my new book, and it’s exciting and challenging, and compelling and frustrating, but isn’t that how a new book always is?
But even with all the writing, the She’s Gone Country book tour rolls on. This Friday I’m at the Borders at Sea-Tac airport at 9 am, and then Thursday Sept 9th is my big Bellevue launch party with the Barnes & Noble discussion and signing at 7 and the party over at Ooba’s at 8 pm. Lisa Johnson, owner of Ooba’s, stopped by my house this morning to discuss the drinks and menu (their signature margaritas plus yummy Tex-Mex food). If you’ve attended the Bellevue party before you know it’s always a lot of fun and I’ve got great reader giveaways so come!
For those who want a more literary feel on the other side of the bridge, we’ve got an event for you, too at Third Place Books Saturday, September 11th. Join me for a reading and a great discussion. I’d love to answer all your questions from why Texas to what’s happening in Hollywood with my books now.
Sunday, September 12th is a book event at Borders in Visalia, California. Visalia is my hometown. I was born at Kaweah Delta Hospital and graduated from Redwood High. I’m hoping to have a great event there, too, and want you to grab a couple friends to come with you.
And then… (breathless pant here….) we’ve got that big ole’ Texas book tour coming up kicking off October 10th with a tea with the DFW Tea group, and then a fun girls night out party at Love and War in Texas. I’ve got 8 days of events in Texas and I want to see everyone that I can. So book clubs, grab your girls and come see me, or clubs and groups, email me and see if I can join you for something. I haven’t done a big Texas tour in 5 years so let’s make this one HUGE and awesome!
Now it’s back to the story and love and hugs and gratitude to all of you!
