Some feedback on Finding Kylie

I got a really sweet voice mail today from a former co-worker and friend, named Kim. I just had to post it for you all to hear. When I heard her crying at first, I thought something was really wrong and it scared me. Then I listened to the rest of the message and felt so honored at her reaction. Give it a listen! If you've not read the book yet, you can click on my book button on the sidebar of this blog. Scroll down a little and click on the book cover of 'Finding Kylie'! I look forward to your reviews too!

My Son's Career Path

It doesn't take much to recognize certain traits in our children from early on. My son's a born salesman. Last night at my book launch party, which went phenomenal by the way, he circulated and worked the room, asking every single person if they've bought a book by his mommy. I even saw him dragging my mom over when he noticed she didn't have hers yet. He pulled her across the room, made her out a ticket, and gave her a five-dollar bill and a nickel. It didn't matter that she hadn't bought one yet, he gave her the standard change he saw us giving out to all those that paid with a twenty-dollar bill. His math and reasoning skills are very high for someone his age. At the of the night, one man, whom I met for the first time last night said, "Hey, your son signed my copy of your book." me--"Huh? He did?" Opening to the back page, I saw a backward J that was crossed out ... and then a correct J next to it. me--"What did he p

Fat lip and all ...

So last night my son purposely head-butted me and busted both my top and bottom lip. I keep trying to teach him to be gentle when playing with girls and me... but I don't think he's catching on. This morning, the cuts were barely noticeable. Relieved, I continued with my day. My little guy stayed home from school today. He's been on antibiotics, which make him crazy - with a capital C! We were playing and he shoved up his arm and fist, pretending to knock someone out. Unfortunately for me, I turned my head toward him and into a little fist. Now I have my first fat lip. I look like I had a collagen injection! Well, I always wanted sexy full lips. Now I have one! (I hope it goes down before tonight's book launch party)

Blog Talk Me Baby

Here's my first interview. IF you have a little time to hear about the book, check this link out. Kimberlee, my publisher, is a really neat lady and she asked some awesome questions. We had fun bantering back and forth.

Missing Blogger Needs Your Help

Tara has been doing a great job of keeping us all up to date on Kathleen's disappearance, with posts like these . I'm sickened to think of a fellow blogger gone for 11 days and her local media is just NOW caring enough to run stories to get leads for the police. Was anchorage so caught up in local and national election coverage that threat of a missings woman's life was too trivial to cover? It angers me that a loved and missed family member, mom, wife, and friend can just disappear with no one covering it!!! Sheila Kathleen McBroom, more commonly known as Kathy McBroom, has been missing for over ten days. Please watch this video, and if you know someone who knows anything please contact the local Anchorage authorities!

Review Me Please

Hey, you guys! As you read my book, I want to invite you to write a review on Amazon. If you have an account through Amazon, you can review my book here ! I hope you'll thoroughly enjoy it, and take the time to jot a few things down for me in order to promote it through Amazon. Thank you! Tomorrow morning, I have my first book signing at my university library. It's their Homecoming weekend, and part of the festivities is their first alumni book signing event. It's an honor to be asked to be involved. I only have fifteen books to take with me for this one, but I am not worried as most people who want it will hold off for the big event in downtown OKC. Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill is graciously hosting my launch party on November 20th. If anyone is in OKC that night let me know!
