Excused Absence

July 5, 2007

Wow—can’t believe how long it’s been since I updated this—sorry!  However, I DO have an Excused Absence—here’s what it’s been like on the home front since we got back:

By the time we got done with the Big Ass Book Tour on the Big Ass Bus, it was only 3 weeks until PARADE TIME—so we lit right into Float-building and making ready for the 80-gabillion Queens who were about to hit town!  If you haven’t looked at the GALLERY lately, go there now and see all the fabulosity from this year’s MILLION QUEEN MARCH—it was the 25th Anniversary and it was plenty swell.

No sooner was the Parade over, the next BOOK was due and I commenced to writing feverishly on that—with not a little bit of help from the Worldwide Queendom!  The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit will be out in January, ’08—and a whole bunch of y’all will find yourselves and your children in it!  I regret that it was not possible to use ALL the stories and recipes y’all sent—I swear, I’ve got enough for another book!—and I’ve saved ‘em all for future use, you can bet! 

We have already been working on the 2008 MILLION QUEEN MARCH™ festivities—and it is going to be SOOOO much bigger and even better than ever—I can’t wait ‘til I can tell you all the details.  There is going to be MORE MUSIC and MORE FOOD—which is my favorite?  Hard to say!  We’re working on an event HONORING ALL BOSS QUEENS—there are currently over 5,300 of ‘em out there—and we want to see every one of ‘em here in Jackson next March. 

If you haven’t booked your rooms yet, go IMMEDIATELY to our FRIENDS page and click on the link to the HILTON.  Not sure if they are full yet—but if you try to book through other routes, it always says  “no vacancy” so go through our link—it’s the only hope at this point.  If you can’t be at the Hilton, get as close by as you can and you can e-mail me at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com if you need guidance for that.

Will be heading to Grand Haven, Michigan, sometime soon to do the reading for the audio version of the new book.  BRILLIANCE AUDIO is located in Grand Haven—very cool studio—very cool town—can’t wait!  If I have to work in the summertime—can’t imagine a better place to do it and better folks to do it with.

Folks are already asking me what the NEXT book will be about—and I don’t rightly know at this point!  What would YOU like to see me address next time around?  In what area of your life are you feeling the need for further SPQ™ Guidance and Direction?  Write me at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com and lemme know—I do, after all, Live to Serve!
