Splurge Purchases!

It's been almost two years since I took the very fun, very amazing, very cool girlfriend-road-trip with my most excellent friend, Cindy-Rae. (See book acknowledgments for more on her!)

We're going again THIS JUNE for research, ALA Conference in New Orleans, book trailer filming, swamp tours, most excellent food, and talkin', talkin', talkin' to many folks and librarians and book bloggers as well as seein' gorgeous plantation homes.

I bought this gorgeous porcelain doll last year and never showed her off!

Isn't she spectacular! One of those splurge purchases. I couldn't fit her on the airplane since I bought her at the last minute and was already packed and stuffed to the gills, but the shop at Houmas Plantation shipped her for me real cheap. I still need to think of a wonderful Southern name for her. Any suggestions??? Please give me your favs in the comments below!

Maybe I'll just name her after the beautiful porcelain doll that magically appeared in my new, upcoming book CIRCLE OF SECRETS - October 1, 2011. Anna Marie . . .


When I went to Barnes and Noble's site for the link above to The Healing Spell I found this brand new review!


"i saw this at my schools book-fair and read the back. i couldn't get it cuz i didn't have any money. POOOOOP"

Awwww, man, what a sweetie - I wish I could send sam5 a copy! There are times I just want to give my book away so readers who are dying for it can read it.

My brain has officially turned to mush. Thanks for connecting my synapses!

Charlotte said...

ah gee--I wish I could send Sam a copy too!

And Evangeline seems perfect for her.

What about Caroline? Caroline Hampton Preston was the wife of John Smith Preston who owned Houmas House Plantation in the 1840s.
By the way, thank you for sharing your experience at Houmas House Plantation. I hope you'll come back again soon!

Hi Jesse, so glad you found my post - and what a great idea about naming her Caroline after the mistress of the plantation, too! Houmas house was fantastic!!! Thank you!
