Yee Haw ! Two visits out WEST!

Howdy ya'll~This week I visited librarians in Amarillo and Lubbock. They were a great audience. I love speaking to library people. Candy and Coye the Abdo reps that arranged my trip were terrific. Talk about being a hostess with mostess. They treated the librarians like queens providing snacks, lunch, and door prizes. I would do it again! Kylie Jean would say, "I had more fun than ridin' the Ferris Wheel at the state fair!"

Super Summer!

Hello Readers~

This has been a super summer! I had a wonderful visit to Jacksonville, TX. I was the speaker at a mother/daughter rodeo dinner. The audience was awesome! You'll never believe it, but I got to sit at the table with the "real" rodeo queens. They were gorgeous. Then I did an author visit at the Bullard, TX public library. It is in a log cabin. Really! One of the best parts was finding out that one of the little girls was a Kylie too. Some of the kids were reading the Kylie Jean books and had them checked out. On a mini vacation this weekend in Austin,TX I found my books on the shelf of my favorite book store, Book People. I signed all of their copies! This fall so far I will be doing visits in  Dallas, Diboll, Chireno, and College Station. I plan to be at the Texas Book Festival in Austin. Also, signing books for Capstone at The American Association of School Librarians, AASL in Minneapolis, Minnesota!

Yee Haw Read!

Barnes and Noble book signing huge success!!

The book signing at Prestonwood Barnes and Noble was a huge success! Thanks to all my fans for coming out and thank you to the manager Lea for having me. Also, appreciated my friends Jay and Joan in childrens' books for keeping the line moving. Especially Jay for setting the signing up. I loved seeing my Kramer kids, DKG friends, tea club ladies and fellow librarians. We sold about 300 Kylie Jean books! I'm still on cloud was a wonderful day!

Football Queen is Finished! Yea!

Kylie Jean shares her football mania with readers. Even Ugly Brother loves Friday night football. She makes up this cheer for her brother T.J. who is the quarter back for his team...
Kings are gonna rock you
Kings are gonna sack you
Better watch the clock you
Our Line Backers will wack you
Carter’s gonna win it
He throws the ball to spin it
Kings are gonna rule
Kings are really cool!
Go Kings, Go Carter!
Go Kings, Go Carter!
Can't wait for these books to come out! It will be a while. Look for them in January 2012!

Kylie Jean Spelling Bee Queen

Hey Kylie Jean Fans! I just finished writing Spelling Bee Queen. It turned out super cute! I love the part where Kylie Jean and her best cousin Lucy find a baby cat and they both want to be its momma. Kylie Jeans' spelling adventures in the Piggly Wiggly grocery store are pretty fun too. Now it's on to Football Queen. You know in Texas we love our Friday night football...
