"Red Dirt Rocker" Release Month!

I received an email from my publisher this week that let me know that we are going to shoot for April of this year for the release date of "Red Dirt Rocker!"  I cannot wait to be able to hold a hot little copy in my hands and read like it was the first time!

I have also started on the first chapter of my next book, "Cowgirls And Painted Ponies."  More on the subject matter and inspiration for the book soon.

Blessings and have a great weekend y'all!

God Is Good And So Is Metal!

Forrest was filming our little special needs baby boy, Eddie Jett, yesterday and caught his first jump in the air with both feet off the ground!  He also filmed him saying a new word.  Keep in mind he signs most of what he wants at 4 years old.  His vocabulary only consists of;  Mama, Ga-Ga, up!,yogurt, and he has now been calling Skylar's new wonderful beau, Da-Da on occasion.

Forrest was filming precious Eddie Jett "head banging" to Metallica on his bed (his favorite pastime) and he asked him to say, Metal.  He looked dead on at Forrest and said it with the cutest grin I've ever seen and then buried his head in the pillow!!  "Metal!!!"

God is good and so is Metallica!

Hey There Sports Fans!

Hey y'all!

Long time no post. No excuses, just life.  I thought the holidays were busy, but I think it's
the weeks afterward that I took time to try to organize my life a bit more in order to be
ready to face 2012.  I've stayed busier than ever, but I'm ready to start writing again.

It's Super Bowl Sunday.  My daughter left very mad.  The Patriots, her team, lost.
It was a fantastic game though.  A nail biter to the end.

Just a quick post to catch you all up.  I still don't have a release date for my book, but
hopefully I will very soon.  I'm still so excited and motivated as ever to get it on the
shelves.  Forrest got some great news in the last couple of weeks music wise.  He
is going to have the extreme honor of recording at David Teegarden's state of the
art recording studio in the next couple of weeks!  Yes, David Teegarden, the drummer
for The Silver Bullet Band, the drummer that has worked with Eric Clapton.  Unreal!
He is so very excited.  God is truly working in his life.

My daughters and their babies are doing great as well.  We had a "pony party" for Eddie
Jett's 4th B-day party two weeks ago, complete with a blue and white painted pony.
The kids had the best day ever.  Landon and Clara Jane are growing like weeds.
Landon is counting, knows most of his colors and shapes as well at 2 years old...
Little smarty pants.  Clara Jane is developing her personality big time.  Love them so.

My daughter Skylar (Eddie Jett's mom) has fallen in love with the loveliest young man.
We are thrilled for her.  He treats her like gold and loves Eddie Jett with a sweet,
gentle, understanding love.  So blessed.

Hope 2012 is treating you all well.  Have a blessed week all!
