Pink feather hat, boa, tiara, clown outfit, marketing material– check,check, check, and oh mercy I’m sure I’m overlooking something! Yes, indeed, it’s that time again. This weekend I’ll return to the Pulpwood Queen’s Girlfriend Weekend Greatest Show on Earth in Jefferson, TX to present my latest book, Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy! A veteran of this affair by now, one might think I would know what exactly what to expect and how to prepare.
Excuse me. I couldn’t help myself. The truth is, this is one event that refuses to fit in a box, any box. For illustration, I invite y’all to join me this weekend via this blog and my Facebook wall for real-time pictures. (Here’s one from a past year of me and my BFF dressed as rainbows for The Big Hair Ball!)
And speaking of pictures, I have a special one to leave you with right now, preceded by a song which you should count yourself fortunate to be reading instead of hearing yours truly perform in surround sound.
One of the activities during the weekend will be an auction where authors will donate any and all sorts of goods to be bidded on by the attending Pulpwood Queen book club members, proceeds going to charity. This year, I’ll be donating a little mat board that celebrates books, complete with a cool crackle finish. I created it with my own two little hands, idea courtesy of Pinterest. And if I must say so myself, (since y’all aren’t here to pat me on the back), I think it turned out really well.
What say you?
