I had a postively wonderful time at the signing at Walden Books yesterday afternoon! So many of you came out, even though it was rainy and gloomy outside. But, then, what better way to spend a rainy afternoon than inside a book store???
The sun is barely up as I write this, and the draw is shrouded in thick fog. I did my morning devotions in front of the living room fire, in the company of my dogs and cats. (Friends, it doesn’t get any better than that. I am so blessed.)
I promised to tell you about last week’s book tour in Phoenix, so here goes. The sunshine was positively medicinal, a Spokane winter being–well–a Spokane winter. My able assistant Jenni and I arrived on Thursday, picked up the rental car and checked into the hotel. Then we did what any sensible women would do–we shopped! On Friday morning, I appeared on “Midday Arizona”, where I was delighted to make the acquaintance of Wilbur, a small and ridiculously cute kitten soon to be adopted, courtesy of Phoenix’s wonderful Humane Society shelter. As if that wasn’t enough, I got to meet Jimmy Wayne, a young (and very cute) country western singer. I was VERY impressed with Jimmy, not only because he has a terrific voice, but because he’s associated with a wonderful organization called HomeBase. They work with homeless street kids. Jimmy’s own story is pretty inspirational–check him out at www.JimmyWayne.com.
I’m working on getting some autographed copies of his CD to give as prizes on this very website.
So that’s today’s installment.
On the book front, “McKettrick’s Choice” is riding high on the bestseller lists. Yeehaw!!! (As Jesse would say.)
