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.

Tea with Ida B.

On July 11, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m., I will become my alter-ego, Ida B. Peevish of Ida's Salon of Beauty & Live Bait Shop, and hold court at The Daily Grind, a really good coffeehouse right next to the courthouse. Because the proprietors are of the British persuasion, you can get a good cup of tea, too.

I'll be signing copies of my latest vanity-pubbed tome, More Peevish Advice. I really want to say it's "fresh off the press," but—as a print-on-demand book—it's digitally printed, so no press was involved. It's my new book, though—a thematically arranged collection of "Peevish Advice" columns from 2001 to mid-2006.

Fellow Lake Writer Marion Higgins (When Men Move to the Basement) will join me.

Hope to see y'all there! (I really hope to see y'all there buying books. But if you just want to stop in and say "hi" or complain about something I've written, that'll be OK, too.)

This has been a blatant promotional advertisement. We will return to our regular blog subjects tomorrow.

(If you can't make it to The Daily Grind, More Peevish Advice is now available on Amazon.)

I must say that I agree with Miss Marion, in that you seem more of a coffee mug gal than a tea cup mistress. I hope to make your signing and I'm looking forward to a hilarious read!
