Greetings from Marion, KY

Posted Mar 25 2012, 6:57 am

Yesterday, my husband and I hurried over to Marion for the book signing at Crittenden County Public Library, with just enough time to spare to dash into the Marion Cafe. When I told one of the ladies that we needed to grab a quick breakfast, she was more than helpful. Before we knew it, we had scrambled eggs, crispy bacon and biscuits and gravy. Yum!

Less than 15 minutes later, we were off to the library. Zach,  from Books a Million in Paducah, already had a stack of books and a cash register in the meeting room. Regina, the director of the library, had beautiful glass pitchers filled with water and lemonade, trays of cookies out, and candy, too! Everything looked wonderful.

There was also quite a crowd. Over fifty people! I chatted for a bit, read a few pages from MISSING, then signed books for over an hour. I loved meeting everyone, and was so grateful to all who took time out  of their busy Saturday to come see me.

I think I smiled the whole way home.

Thank you to everyone in Crittenden County who made my day so special!

With Regina Merrick and Mayor Alexander

    I enjoy reading your books. This one “Missing” is holding my attention. I just came across something that may be a misprint on page 47 – 2nd line from the top – is this correct “nth” degree? Have a Blessed Day.

    I did type comment.

    I just finished your book today. One of the Amish ladies at the Amish store wanted to read it. So, I took Missing to her to read. It is a great book. I’m ready for the next one:)

    Piden liderazgo a Obama sobre reofmra migratoria Washington, 28 Ene (Notimex).- El presidente de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, debe tomar liderazgo sobre una reofmra migratoria integral en lugar de esperar una propuesta del Congreso, dijo Gabe Gonze1lez, asesor de la campaf1a Reforma Migratoria PRO Ame9rica. Sef1or presidente, por favor no espere a que el Congreso se mueva sobre la reofmra migratoria’, dijo luego del discurso sobre el estado de la unif3n en el que Obama reiterf3 la vedspera su compromiso a continuar esfuerzos para legalizar a millones de indocumentados. No permita que nuestras comunidades sufran otro af1o bajo el peso de nuestro disfuncional sistema migratorio. Estaremos de su lado en cada paso expresando nuestro apoyo en las calles, en internet y en el tele9fono. Juntos podemos hacerlo, pero necesitamos su liderazgo’, apuntf3.
