Judge for yourself. Do I look calm, cool and collected? Or do I look like a kid who has just met their rock star hero?
Me and Joshilyn Jackson
Joshilyn Jackson was in Wichita last night reading and signing copies of her latest book, Backseat Saints. When my friend, Cheryl, alerted me that Joshilyn would be coming to Kansas, I dropped everything and... well, marked my calendar.
Joshilyn was great -- very entertaining -- even better, perhaps, than on her blog. You all might remember that I've been a fan for a long time. It is a gift to her readers that she keeps writing so we have something to read between books.
She talked a bit about her characters and then read us a scene from her book. I like having her voice in my head. I was still hearing it when I started reading last night. She's got a sweet, southern accent that makes you want to slow down and absorb the words at a more leisurely pace.
I may have to revive the Sunday book review for this one. Only a couple of chapters in and I'm hooked.
