you’re invited !!!

Pretty much every book-related thing I do is fun.  But there’s something extra-magical about a book launch party.

You’ll be there, right?  Even if you’re in New York, say, or Canada?  Git yourself down here and let’s kick this thing off right!

(And PS: You can pre-0rder books from Brazos and I’ll sign them beforehand so you don’t have to wait in line!)

new book tour stop: Dallas!

Looks like I’ll be headed to Dallas on March 5, 2009 for a reading for Everyone Is Beautiful at Legacy Books. From what I can find online, Legacy books looks enormous and swanky and gorgeous.  Can’t wait.

speaking at the Mom 2.0 Summit

I’ll be speaking at the Mom 2.0 Summit in Houston this coming February.  The Kirtsy Chicks and OpMom are organizing, so you know it’s going to rock.  

mom2summit

Here’s how they describe the summit:

What do you get when you mix top brands, mom bloggers, social media experts, marketing leaders, media leaders, tech moms and mompreneurs all under one roof talking shop?  (Well, besides a whole lotta awesomeness….)

Plus the speakers are awesome, and the venue is supah-swanky!

katherine to speak at the fort bend county book & author dinner!

ba-bliss1

 

Katherine with author Bliss Broyard at the Houston Chronicle B&A Dinner last fall.

 

I will speak as a featured author at the Fort Bend County Book and Author Dinner on February 15, 2009. The dinner is just two days before Everyone Is Beautiful goes on sale, but it’s against the rules to sell books before their on-sale date.  But you CAN pre-order Everyone Is Beautiful, and it’ll arrive at your house on the 17th!  (Or so I’ve heard…)
