A blog! I need a blog! This thought has been keeping me up nights for quite a while, so finally, here it goes …
I’m pleased to announce I’ll be blogging here regularly (I hope) about my writing and family life, my adventures in the Colorado mountains, and mostly, my musings on what makes Texas so crazy and yet so special. Hint: It has everything to do with hard-livin’, hell-raisin’, big-hearted people. And maybe cows.
The big news today on the writing front is that the paperback release of Blue Straggler is scheduled for mid-February now, and readers can even pre-order the book now via Barnes and Noble. I can’t wait to hold a proof in my hands soon. And my husband BETTER take me out to dinner. I’m talking steak and vodka, baby.
I’m already making some calls to see if I can set up a couple of book signings down in Texas in March. Let’s face it: I love a good excuse to enjoy the spring wildflowers, especially the bluebonnets, and perhaps a margarita or two with some of my dear friends at Texas A&M. Stay tuned for updates!
For now, I’ll leave you with a phrase a colleague just told me “must be a Texas-ism.” I simply told her that my laptop crashed “like a mother dog.” And now I’m thinking that may just be a “Kathy-ism.”
If you want to read more of my writing, I send out the occasional newsletter. Sign up here:
Steak and vodka! Did you know I’m vegetarian? When we finally meet (soon let’s hope!), it’ll have to be garden burger and vodka I’m afraid. Ha!
I make a mean spinach enchilada, honey, so come on over!
Oh boy, did this make my mind run rampant with Texas-isms and Kathy-isms. Like “colder than a witch’s…” fill in the blank. We were probably in Kansas and you were on your way to your “living in the Colorado mountains” adventure : )
Ha! I thought we would never speak of Kansas again. I just added the cold as a witch’s … to a chapter I’m working on in A Good Kind of Knowing!
Congrats! I wish I could go to all these book readings! Could we have one at the Dixie Chicken?? Looking forward to all your posts!
