Eureka in Eureka!

BigFoot Pam, Dixie Ruth, Doc Ned, Alaska Patty

Last weekend (June 25-26th) I had a book signing at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Three of my writing buds went me and together we traded the blahs of every day life for the healing magic of the Springs. Not only was this a much needed "get-a-way-from-reality" weekend, it was also a time to celebrate:

I had a book signing for Soldiers From the Mist. 

Alaksa Patty signed a contract with Wild Rose Press for not one, but TWO romance novels due to be released in November, Santorini Sunset and Redneck Ex.

Big Foot Pam's new novel, Redneck Goddess,has been released from HighHill Press and the next book signing will be her's.

Gypsy Jan signed with an agent and it's only a matter of time before her novel, Broken Dolls finds a home.

 Doc Ned headed over to the Springs on Sunday to lend his advise and experitse.

Alas, we didn't see any ghosts at the famous haunted hotel probably because we laughed so hard we scared them!However,the siging was very successful.  Thanks to Linda Clark and her staff for their help, and to the owner, Jean for her support.

Something wonderful happened last weekend in that small town nestled in the Ozark hills.  Nerves calmed. Time disappeared. Food and drink flowed. And laughter, lots and lots of laughter rejuvenated us all.  

Too much excitement for Jasper Cat

Never under-estimate good friends and good laughter, for that is the true magic in life!

  1. So excited for you my friend! Sorry you didn't see any ghosties but I'm absolutely certainly the three of year scared any away. Wish I was there! Much love and hugs - Rhonda

  2. I so wish I could have been there. Big Foot Pam, Alaska Patty, Doc Ned, Dixie Ruth, and Gypsy Jan. Love the names. Congratulations to you and your writing buds. Wishing you all the best.

  3. It was a blast even without the ghosts. I think Rhonda may be right - we scared them away. I'm ready for the next escape from reality!
