Naked and Hungry Hits the Road in 2012!

Thanks to the support of fans like you, Naked and Hungry had a great year in 2011, with invitations to speak at two bookstores, three Rotary clubs, Spa at Bell House, Coffee and Crepes, The State of Things, and the crowning event, being the guest of the Happy Bookers Club at the Asheboro Library last month.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve got an exciting line-up for Spring 2012, as Naked and Hungry hits the road again, with stops in Pittsboro, Colfax, Asheboro, and Cary.

If any of these events are near you, I hope that you’ll find the time to attend. As always, I’ll be reading from the book, discussing the joys of fiction….and giving away a crepe pan from Williams-Sonoma!

The highlights are listed below, but there is much more to come (including area bookstores), so please stay tuned to the Events Calendar throughout 2012. All events are free and open to the public.

Thursday, January 26 at 7 p.m. – Chapel Ridge Book Club, Chapel Ridge Community Center, Pittsboro, NC

Tuesday, February 21  at 7 p.m – River Landing Retirement Community, Colfax, N.C.

Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m.- Friends of the Library Adult Program, Asheboro Public Library at 7.p.m.

Wednesday, March 28  at 7 p.m – Glenaire Retirement Community, Cary, N.C.

Hope to see you soon!


Mopping My Way into 2012

I may be the only person who celebrated New Year’s Eve by mopping her kitchen floor but boy, was it cathartic! You see, after one and a half years, Born Again, Dead Again is finally finished. Of course, much proofreading lies ahead but I’ve done the hardest part, tying up the loose ends and resolving the plot to my satisfaction.

And after several days spent curled up with my laptop, it felt great to stretch my legs again. That made me look around the house and see all the work that I’ve neglected for the past few days…but first I think I’ll treat myself to a coconut martini, a bowl of popcorn and a re-run or two of Strangers with Candy (my guilty pleasure).

I suppose I should set new resolutions for 2012, but having finished this book (a 2011 resolution by the way), I’m okay playing it by ear for a change.

We do have a number of events ahead next year for Naked and Hungry, so I hope to see you in 2012. For now, here’s wishing you a productive year and a few quiet moments to celebrate the accomplishments of 2011.
