Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Signing at the General Store

Saturday, Marion Higgins and I did a book-signing at the General Store at Westlake. Our county no longer has a bookstore, so we depend upon Smith Mountain Lake gift shops to carry our books. The General Store is a fantastic gift shop!

That's me (left) with my buddy Marion Higgins at the General Store.

Marion signed When Men Move to the Basement; I signed More Peevish Advice. Our books are both humor, so they complement each other.

We were joined by our illustrator and fellow Lake Writer, Bruce Rae, who is best-known around Smith Mountain Lake for his fish carvings.

Marion Higgins and Bruce Rae look at her book.

Marion has already blogged about our signing, so I’ll refer you to her blog for all the details. We had a great time, signed a bunch of books, met a lot of neat people, and ate delicious snacks provided by Vickie and her co-workers at the General Store.

She and I—along with some other area writers and crafts people—will be back at the General Store on October 6, from 11 until 2. I’ll be signing A Cup of Comfort for Writers then.

Y'all come see us. And buy our books.

Looks like quite a success! And our little book fair here in Meadows of Dan the first weekend in July went very well; thanks for your help in spreading the word!

Nice pics Becky! I was just there two weeks ago with out of towners. It is a beautiful store. Too bad Ibby had to close her shop...
