Finishing Up My Greatest Escape Ever!

Hi there, guys and dolls!   Well, hasn’t that been a wonderful couple of weeks.  I must say though, I’m ready to park the Edsel and hang up my girdle for a spell.  The girls have one more outing for great-escape-tour-banner-large-death-of-a-beauty-queen640me on Tuesday, February 17th — more details in the next few days, so be sure to keep your eyes open to Facebook and your ears poised for a tweet or two shortly — such a fun time is being had by all!

So let’s see — the last time I posted, I was just about to have my Santa Lucia royalty meet a member from another court on Lori Bones Caswell’s spiffy GREAT ESCAPES BOOK TOUR.  I had the pleasure of the QUEEN OF ALL SHE READS spotlight yours truly on her lovely site.  Also, JANE READS took some time to chat and share her thoughts on DEATH OF A BEAUTY QUEEN with her friends.  I’m also really glad that Shelley reported on her blog SHELLEY’S BOOK CASE that she enjoyed her stay in my town.  Amy had some interesting questions for me and my gals on her site, A BLUE MILLION BOOKS, while we were happy to note that Rhonda, who enjoys a clean read felt at home with our social set, as she reviewed in her READALOT blog.  Melina featured my glamour tips as well as her own amusement in the Poppy Cove patrons dilemmas on her page, MELINA’S BOOK BLOG.   Annie shared our visit and her thoughts on her EDITING PEN site.  Our final stop is to COZY UP WITH KATHY and I can’t think of a nicer way to end.  She lets me share how a lady gets ready to face her casual public.

Thank you all who co-ordinated, wrote, and read the posts.  Your kindness, hard work, and curiosity touches my heart.   A toast of the bubbly to you all!
