Several weeks ago, I got an email from someone who works at a bookstore and had an advance copy of my book. She told me she was so sad when the book ended. She didn’t want it to end. I wrote her back and told her the story didn’t really end–I still write every day right here at Chickens in the Road.
I’m still living my story–the next story. New life, new love, new adventure, new things to learn. I’m very excited about the future, and I hope you’ll stay with me! Life is a bold adventure, and I am far from done living it.
I’m doing a booksigning this Thursday, October 17, at Taylor Books in Charleston, from 6:00 to 7:30–please come see me! This Thursday is also the same day as Charleston’s ArtWalk, 5:30 to 7:30–so come get a signed copy of my book and get free wine and snacks up and down the street!

See inside the book. Today, you will finally be able to see the amazing job my publisher did with this book in print. The cover image is vivid, and inside the book, chickens are sprinkled artfully throughout the pages. The photographs are in full color and glossy, and the recipe/craft sections in the back are also done beautifully. And yes, they even got in that photo of me with the chicken that I didn’t want on the cover–in the author bio at the back of the book jacket. (I forgive them! LOL!) I’m so grateful to HarperCollins for the incredible care they took of my book, and of me. This is a book I hope you’ll want to have in print and keep–and share as gifts with friends and family.
