Kinda like a Hog Calling Contest, Kinda

I hope y’all won’t take offense to that hog calling reference once I tell y’all what’s on my mind. It’s just that I thought, being southern and all, y’all would undertstand hog calling contests, and chicken calling contests, and husband calling contests, and well– y’all get the point. We do a fair share of calling around here, don’t we, now?

I’m crossing my fingers that y’all might be willing to use all that experience of yours to help a girl out. I’m hard at work preparing for the Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy Tour. It takes a herculean effort to get things tied up to be gone so my goal is to  maximize every opportunity to meet as many folks as possible out on the road. Today I thought to myself, “Self, why not harness the power of the ATS porch and social media to help?” Myself thought we might be on to something, so here are the details:

I’ve made graphics below of the stops along the way. If you see your area, could you be so kind as to post the picture (or text if you prefer) to your blog, twitter or facebook wall? (For my less techy friends, it’s as simple as right-clicking on the picture and choosing “save picture as” and saving it to your computer desktop. Then you can upload it easily in the status bar.) Of course, if you don’t see your area, you could always post as many of the graphics as you’d like or share this blog w/your friend list. Any effort would be much appreciated. 

I also have plenty of marketing postcards. If you’d be willing to pass some out among your friends, book club, church group, etc., just message me your snail mail address and I will be delighted to put some in the mail for you.

Now for the fun part– should you choose to participate by doing any of the above, your name will go in a hat and I’ll be drawing out 5 names to send free copies of “Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy!” Let’s go viral!

How about it, folks? I always say that I have the best readers and listeners in the world.  Who’s in?

    I have posted the B’ham, Alabama date on Facebook. Unfortunately, I won’t get to come because I’ll be out of town (and the country)! Maybe later. . .
