Brazen Self-Promotion–One Last Time

I am really, really, no kidding winding down my promotional blitz for THE FIXER UPPER. I’m starting a new book, and really, I am so ready to ditch the whole make-up and Spanx routine. Not that I don’t love meeting and talking to you guys. I just wish I could do it in my jammies and scuffies. But there are a few more events this fall where you can catch me. And Spanx or no, I’m really looking forward to all of ’em. The first one is this weekend, at THE AJC DECATUR BOOK FESTIVAL. Oh yeah, there’ll be some other authors hangin’ around. Like 200 or so, including my former AJC colleague and Pulitzer Prize winning buddy Doug Blackmon, and Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse books that are the basis for HBO’s TRUE BLOOD series, and an awesome range of children’s authors. As for me, I’ll be presenting Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Decatur Presbyterian Church Sanctuary stage. Hey, my kids went to pre-school here! So you could get your funnel cake and then come see me. Details here.

After that, on Sept. 16, you can put on your fall finery and join me at the SMART WOMEN LUNCHEON in Savannah, to benefit St. Joseph’s Candler Hospital’s Mary Telfair hospital for women. It’s a good cause, and I promise to be extra glammed up and funny. Check it out here. The next day I’ll be slummin’ at The Cloister, but if you’re not a member there, you can always come to my book signing afterwards at G.J. Ford Books on St. Simons Island, Thurs. Sept. 17, from noon-2p.m.
And finally, I’m gonna be in the company of some amazing Southern writers of the female persuasion at a CELEBRATION OF SOUTHERN WRITERS being held Sept. 20-24 at the beautiful Old Edwards Inn and Spa in Highlands, NC. Come and get a sneak preview of fall at one of the South’s most stunning inns. Pardon me for name-dropping, but do names like Kathryn Stockett (THE HELP), Cassandra King (SAME SWEET GIRLS), Margaret Maron (SAND SHARKS), Patti Callahan Henry (DRIFTWOOD SUMMER) and Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays (BEING DEAD IS NO EXCUSE) ring a bell with you? There will be seminars and luncheons and drinks on the veranda, and laughing and lots of good talk about good books. To get all the details, go here.
