Barbie Turns 50 Today

I just have to tell everyone — Barbie turned 50 years old today. Can you believe that _itch still fits in the clothes she wore at 20?

I am back from two weeks of book signings — during which time I was forced to wear makeup and pantyhose — and I’d like to thank those who showed up. One reader brought me home made candy so many thanks to PJ for that! Now get this: We left Alpharetta, Georgia, bound for Lithonia, Georgia, on Sunday, March 1st and hit a snow storm! Actually, it was a blizzard! I’m not exaggerating! I always said if I wore makeup and pantyhose hell would freeze over so I’m sort of thinking I had something to do with that snow storm.

Although I’ll have to go to a couple of signings at the end of the month, I am SO GLAD to be home. I missed my pets, even the dachshund with the flatulence problem. He is sprawled across my feet as I sit here and type this. Every time he farts I spray him with Lysol. I’m not sure it’s good for his fur, but it keeps me from barfing on my keyboard.

So now I have two weeks to finish my book. There is also a box of unopened chocolate in the house, left over from boxes I purchased for bookstore sellers. I hope all of you will keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I try to stay out of it.

Big warm hug to everyone!

    Charlotte, it’s hard to imagine Barbie being 50. First, she fit into all those clothes that we didn’t even look good in at 20 and she still can? There’s something unfair about all that.

    I’m glad your signing went well. I saw your latest book, Nutcase, in my grocery store. It’s amazing to me, when I look at books now, how many names I recognize. Promotion brings authors on a more personal realm with their readers these days. That’s a good thing because it proves a point I make. Places like FB and other social networks, create name recognition and allow readers to get to know the personalities of the authors better and make them more inclined to look for those new books.

    I laughed at your Lysol solutions. My dogs don’t have the problem on a regular basis, but I do have a bottle of Fabreeze handy.

    Looking forward to your next book. Happy writing!
