Special & "Celebration of Reading"

Dear Y'all,

URGENT!  URGENT!  URGENT!  It’s almost MOTHER’S DAY—May 11!  If you are one, you need to be planning your LOLLING now so nothing interferes with it.  If you are lucky enough to still have your own Mama or any other Mama special to you (including yourownself!)—we would love to help you out with a nifty MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL GIFT SET—which includes:

—a  signed (personalized if you like) copy of THE SWEET POTATO QUEENS’ GUIDE TO RAISING CHILDREN FOR FUN & PROFIT (even if the kids are grown—we can still laugh at our own memories and the struggles of those still in the midst of it!),

—the very sparkly SPQ/MINI-SHADES PIN SET,

 —one of my very favorite t-shirts ever:  THE FEAR OF WOMEN IS THE BASIS OF GOOD HEALTH!

—This is a $62.95 value.

We will also include FOR FREE—because we love you—THE 2008 SPQ WALL CALENDAR!


I am working away on AMERICAN THIGHS:  The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Preserving Your Assets—the deal I have with myself is that every time I finish 20 pages, I get to go to the nursery and buy plants!  If you haven’t sent me your favorite story/recipe yet—DO IT NOW—my landscaping depends on your prompt contribution! I'm getting some HYSTERICAL stuff from y’all—if I can quit laughing, I might get this book done! Tell me about your Teenage Romance Disasters—and/or your Re-Entering the Dating World at 50 Tales of Woe and Wonder! Fattening Foodstuffs—I know you’ve got some ideas on THIS—send ‘em to me at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com!

Next week, I will be in Houston…

On Thursday, 24 April, I’ll be doing another fundraising event for our Nation’s Queen Mother, Barbara Bush, and The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy’s Celebration of Reading in Houston, Texas. I’m wildly passionate about literacy—as far as I can tell, only folks who can read buy books and y’all know how much I LOVE to sell books and how much my plastic surgeon does too. The other authors joining me will be Amy Grant, Immaculee Ilibagiza, and Jim Nantz; plus, there’s usually a Surprise Author. For information, please contact Ms. Carrie Eickenroht at 1.800.222.5652 or ceicken@dinipartners.com or CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.

Since we are working on next year’s Million Queen March™—now would be a good time for you to send us your input. Tell us how we can make it better! We added a bunch of new stuff this year and we think it went pretty swell over-all. We didn’t get the BOSS QUEEN SALUTE done—because we didn’t figure out the timing right after the Parade—we’ll have a better idea how to do that for next year. We did the Conga Line—but not until Pearls & PJ’s™—so it was Big Fun but did not accomplish MY goal—of seeing all of y’all in your Parade Outfits. Again—better job next year. And we already KNOW we need MORE JELLO for next year—bwahahahaha! I would personally like to lobby for WARMER WATER for the Big Rinse-Off! Click here to get your JELLO WRASSLIN’ IS GOOD™ shirt.

Write to me anytime at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com —with funny stories, GOOD OBITUARIES, and/or Questions about Life Itsownself—I'm often wrong, but NEVER IN DOUBT!
