From Head to Foot :: Update

It’s been a few weeks [maybe even months?] since we talked about the fact that I wrote a book and you can read that book. This blog is not about my book. But the blog and that book have the same author and there could be a chance that you are new here and don’t

Leader’s Guide!

Happy weekend, friends! While I’m not typically a weekend blogger, it is snowing here in Nashville and the idea of exiting my fleece pajamas for any other less snuggly type of clothing seems nightmare-ish. So I shall blog.

Just say it.

Well, these last two days have certainly been a whirlwind. Not the scary tornado type, but the awesome warm windy Oz kind. We have no clue how many copies of From Head to Foot have been sold in the first 48 hours, and that doesn’t totally matter. What was awesome was that social media was


First of all, the book comes out today. Yay yay yay! Here is the link :: [By the way, that’s the link that I implore you to share with your social media world. Thanks.] Thanks again to Westbow Press. I could not have done this without them. Literally. Now. Let’s talk about Seattle. It

Because I signed off on the cover and the galley. So pretty much I put my pen to paper and signed my name, saying, “so… if there are any issues on the inside of this little puppy, it’s totally my fault.” Which. Truly. Some of the jokes are so dumb in this book that you

Out of my control.

So the book is turned in. And it is now officially out of my control. Praise the Lord. And to be real honest with you, it was a bit anti-climactic. I mean, “yay! I pushed send on an email and now the book is gone into cyberspace.” For you possible future authors, let’s talk deets.

A book I won’t write.

Y’all know I wrote a book. And it is getting published by Westbow. And on Monday, there will be celebrations and confetti and explosions and a sneak peek at the back cover and the book will be turned in and the next step will begin. What is that next step? Yeah…. I dunno. I’ll tell
