Book Fun Preview

Hello and happy spring/winter? It seems the seasons have slipped backward a bit, and I am not mad about it. My sweater collection was strong this year, so I’m happy to bundle up for a few more days.

I’m looking forward to fall, though, because that’s when the book fun starts! We’re planning a book launch party in my hometown of Yreka, California in September or October. I’m so looking forward to celebrating the milestone of my book’s debut with people I’ve known all my life. Then it’s off to a few events for book signings, author talks, and meeting the good people who are interested in my little story. Here’s the link to preorder Never Burn Your Moving Boxes now so you’re all set when these things roll off the printing press.

In the meantime, you can read my latest Western Horseman blog here. It’s about a subject I’ve often laughed about: authentic cowboy decor. Advertising execs want consumers to think hair-on-hide couches and stoneware dish sets are “real” western decor, but you and I know it’s more horsehair everywhere and mismatched, chipped enamel plates. Those things might be hot to the touch, but they’re also virtually indestructible.

Oh, and the comments on that blog post’s WH Facebook page are pretty fantastic. Most people chimed in with their own version of authentic cowboy decor – bits in the bathroom sink and a pile of barn clothes in the mud room. But my all-time favorite comment came from a gal named Ruth who wrote, “It shows you’ve never been in a horse owner/cowboy’s house.” I read that comment three days ago and haven’t stopped laughing about it since.

Here’s another thing to laugh about over on my YouTube channel – how much help I’m not.

And I’ll have you know that shortly after this video, I caught a horse and trimmed all four feet. My husband only had to help me on all four feet, but I successfully nipped a hoof all the way around in one piece, so I was stoked.

Hope everyone is staying warm, grateful, and blessed!
