Last week I attended an Oscar party, complete with red carpet, right here in my hometown of Tupelo, MS. My zany cousin Martha Jo went with me. Think Callie and Lovie from my Southern Cousins Mysteries. Here we are getting out of the white stretch limo and high stepping it onto the red carpet. Fun! I’m trying to look tall and twenty pounds thinner and she’s hamming it up!
Readers are telling me The Sweetest Hallelujah, written as Elaine Hussey, ought to be a movie. I agree. If anybody has a second cousin twice removed with Hollywood connections, start that campaign! Let’s go to the REAL red carpet!
Last week I promised you five winners in my NAME THE BOOK CONTEST. Next Monday there will be five more! Ten winners will receive a copy of my newest women’s fiction novel, written as Peggy Webb. You can still vote for the title. Choices are Phantom of Riverside Park and Till I Found You. Read an excerpt and vote on the title at www.peggywebb.com or on my Facebook page or leave a comment here on the blog.
The first five winners are Melody Gosner, Mary King, Bebe Yarbrough, Angi G. Booth, Marsha Beheler Halpain! Congratulations! There’s still time to win, but hurry. This contest ends March 17.
While you’re voting for your favorite title, so tell me how to rescue my poor cold-bitten Confederate jasmine. It thrived along the brick wall in my Angel Garden for sixteen years but this winter’s sub-freezing temps damaged it horribly. Should I cut it back now, or wait to see which stems are still alive and might put out green leaves?
See you next week!
