April Queenly Events

Dear Y'all,

Just to let you know, we are NOT resting up from the recent spectacular Million Queen March™ Weekend—we are ALREADY working on NEXT year’s event—and I cannot wait to share the details with you so you can begin the delightful Anticipation Process asap!

There are several Queenly Opportunities for us all this month:

TOMORROW—April 1, from 12:00-1:00 CDT, I will be participating in a live tele-seminar on SPIRITED WOMAN and I hope y’all will join in!  Check out all the other Spirited Women you can talk to in the near future, too.  Very cool site! CLICK HERE TO JOIN ME FOR THE SHOW.

This very weekend, I will be in LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS for the Arkansas Literary Festival and I hope to see a bunch of y’all there.  Like for instance—THE REEL DIVAS and THE TOAD SUCK QUEENS—y’all need to come by and explain how come y’all were NOT at the Parade this year, little missies!

On Friday, April 4, there is a Festival Author Party—which does require an advance ticket.  Most all the authors—especially ME—will be there for visiting purposes and there will be food, beer, wine and the Festival’s signature Pomegranate Martini’s.  Hmmmm.  I’ll know to look for y’all by the bar.

On Saturday, April 5, I’ll be doing my Keynote Speaker Thang in the Main Library (Corner of 2nd and Rock) in the Darragh Center—from 2:00-3:00 PM.  This is a FREE event.  That night, I’ll be part of PUB OR PERISH—another FREE event at the wonderful PEABODY HOTEL.  This traditional part of the Festival where the authors read and hang out is sponsored by THE ARKANSAS TIMES.  The Ducks are not invited—they always steal the show. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL SCHEDULE OF EVENTS.

On Thursday, 24 April, I'll be doing another fundrasing event for our Nation's Queen Mother, Ms. 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 Supprise 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.

Also, don’t forget to send me your stories/recipes for the new book—I’m getting some HYSTERICAL stuff from y’all—if I can quit laughing, I might get some writing 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!

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!
