On the road again...

This is the time of year when my car and I become very well-acquainted. I've just finished the long journey from Miami to Virginia with stops in South Carolina to visit friends and North Carolina to visit family. And now I'm about to head out again to Ohio on a book tour.

For those of you who live anywhere near Columbus, here are a few of my plans.

I'll be doing a booksigning at Barnes and Noble, 1739 Olentangy River Road at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 29. Hopefully we'll have plenty of copies of Sweet Tea at Sunrise there, along with Home in Carolina. Can't get there? I'll be signing stock at several local bookstores, so you may be able to pick up signed copies of my books all around town.

I'm also going to be at the book fair at the Romantic Times convention at the Hyatt Regency, 350 N. High Street, on Saturday, May 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. I believe there's a $5 entry fee for the fair which will feature lots and lots of authors.

Right after the book fair on Saturday, I'll be hosting a tea at 2 p.m. If you're interested in attending that, I believe there are a very few tickets left. Please contact me at no later than Monday, April 19. These remaining spots will go on a first come, first served basis. We're going to have lots of fun debuting the video on friendships based on your contest entries, along with some terrific door prizes. There will be fabulous food, and a special magnolia cookie from my favorite cookie company, Flour Pot Cookies. I hope some of you will be able to join us for this event.

For me this trip to Columbus is a homecoming of sorts. Not only did I graduate in journalism from Ohio State, but I worked for the now-defunct morning paper for several years. Other than the wintry blast of cold, I loved Columbus, and I can't wait to get back to see how the town has grown, to visit with lots of old friends and see the campus again.

And I'm really looking forward to getting to see some of my readers from the area, so stop by one of the events if you can. Getting to chat with you is one of my favorite things.
