A few days after my February 7, 2015 book signing at Barnes & Noble in Southlake, TX,  I received a surprise message from Dr. Cindy Ryan, a minister at First United Methodist Church of Grapevine, TX. Dr. Ryan read about my latest novel in the Sunday book section of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (Feb. 1, 2015), ordered the book, then fell in love with the story. She is an active member of her church’s No Stress Book Club, and she’s picked Johnnie Come Lately for their March selection. On March 25th, I will have the honor of attending  their meeting to discuss my novel.

Both books are also available in paperback and e-book at most online booksellers.

  1. Go Kathleen. Nice to see things moving along for your books. I’m supposed to give a Leaning into Love service at a Unitarian Church 45 minutes from my home tomorrow morning. Usually that would be a piece of cake, but we have 6 inches of snow coming, -10 temperatures, and wild winds to make it -40 wind chills. It’s almost never this cold here and if it is, it doesn’t last. We’ve had bouts of this since Christmas.

    1. Thanks so much, Elaine! You know the thrill of signing your books and any venue is always wonderful. But you’ve also experienced the thrill of signing at a B & N in your area. Heady stuff for sure. But now I’ve got to get the sequel done in a few short months, and I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to juggle all of this. LOL

      Good luck with your talk. I hope the weather eases up so you arrive safely.
      Give Miss Willow a hug. I’ve been wondering about her and how she’s doing.

  2. Congratulations on the launch of JCL and the discovery by new readers of TFS. I have loved both, sometimes it seems, forever!

    I’m also thrilled that Texas Methodists have discovered Johnnie Kitchen! I’ve spoken several times at the First United Methodist Church in Bay Minette, AL. They are always thoughtful and informed. You and they are both in for a treat!

    1. Dear Bonnie,

      I can’t even imagine where my writing career as a novelist would be right now without your many years of endless support and friendship. It seems like we’ve alway known each other and worked to help each other with our books…. xoxoxoxo
