Thanks for your loyalty and encouragement. As always, I love to hear from readers at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Just click on the address to reach me. God bless each of you. Every single book sale means so much to my career. Thanks to all of you, I am living my dream. (Which is great, because I’m not fit for anything else.)


As always, I waive my usual speaker’s fee when I appear at large women’s charity fundraisers and regional Red Hat get-togethers (with a minimum of 250 pre-sold tickets, the proceeds of which are all yours). All I ask is that my hosts bring me in, put me up in pet-free, smoke-free accommodations, feed me something I can eat (I’m a cheap date; I don’t drink), pay my basic expenses; and have a local bookseller provide copies of my books to offer after I speak (no pressure). Many booksellers will donate a portion of the sales to your favorite charity, which makes it a win, win, win situation—my favorite kind.

For trade shows or professional events, contact me well in advance at, and I’ll have my assistant send you specific terms and requirements. I can only do two out-of-town events a month, so my calendar gets booked up pretty quickly, but I have occasional cancellations (like the New Orleans event that was supposed to be right after Katrina), so even if you’re not booking for next year, e-mail me anyway and I’ll see what we can do.

To inquire about personal appearances, just contact me at
