All Kinds of Jiggly inside


Ohhhh, so many happy things going on, where do I start?

Well, first, Julie and I leave on our booktour in 10 days. Wow. I am so, so, so excited. I've heard from several people who are planning to come out and I'm stoked for the support, and for the chance to meet some people I've only known via facebook and e-mail. Julie and I have our rental car rented, our sleeping arrangements made, and Julie has a GPS, although she informs me it only speaks Swedish. Lucky for me, she's fluent--or GPS fluent anyway. I've updated the itinerary on my website to reflect our new stops in Reno, Fountain Valley and Newhall. We've about given up on the last few presentations, but if you have a last minute request--or just want to go to a movie with us or something in the cities where we haven't gotten anything scheduled, be sure to let us know.



Second, I find it a lucky qirk of fate that my booktour coincides with English Trifle being featured as a title selection for Time Out For Women. I was stoked when Lemon Tart made their list, but English Trifle too? Wow, wow, wow. I was interviewed for their site HERE, so check it out, I don't think I sound too stupid, which is always nice.








Third, Devil's Food Cake is done and under review with Deseret Book. I'm so glad to be finished, it frees up my brain to start thinking about the next book which will be titled Key Lime Pie. Yummmmmm. I can't tell you what it's about because...well, I don't know yet :-) But it's gunna be good and take place in Florida.




And Fourth, I got my computer back. It was $400 but they fixed everything, everything, everything, and seriously, after the hours I log on this thing it deserved a spa day; or week. I'm relieved it's all glammed up for the trip and that I don't have to use the timer on the kid's computer anymore, that was totally lame.


And there's only two more days of stupid Halloween crap to deal with. What could be better? Other than only one day of stupid Halloween crap left.

Where do you come up with ALL your yummy titles for books? I really need to get one of your dessert books--English Trifle and lemon tart book to start...:D

Good luck with the tour. Wish I lived somewhere where you'll be stopping by. Congrats on the Time Out thing. That's awesome.

Hooray for the return of the lappy! Hooray for tours with Julie! Hooray for LT & ET getting on this list for TOFW! (Hooray that mine name coincides with Lemon Tart!)
Seriously, you couldn't have given me a better gift than to know that Devil's Food Cake is out to DB. Happiest of days! (And remind me when I talk to you next to tell you about my not-so-clever-realization about your book titles.)

Do I get to claim Sunday the 15th yet?

I need to give English Trifle a read. I just got back from a 2 week tour of the UK and I'm craving something British. Sounds like the perfect thing.

PS: Enjoy your book tour!

You are just all kinds of awesome Josi!

Yay on the computer. Congrats on English Trifle making the book list! And way cool on the interview too!

And have a super duper fab time on your tour!

Stephanie Black said...

Josi, I am appalled at your attitude toward Halloween :)

Have a great time on the book tour and congrats on Time Out For Women! That's fantastic! I'm reading English Trifle right now and it's awesome. I need Sadie to move in and cook for me.

Karlene said...

Good news about Time Out for Women. That's awesome! And I'm glad there will be a 4th book in the series. I've heard Florida is a good place to honeymoon...

But really, Josi. You're a Halloween hater? I can't believe it.

Can I be your driver on your book tour?

I lived in Florida for two years, so if you want the low-down...I'm there for you.
