New cover and new author photo

This is the cover for the next book. One of my endorsers describe "The Hillbilly Debutante Cafe" as "Fried Green Tomatoes meets Steel Magnolias and Mayberry RFD with My Name is Earl sprinkled on top."

Another: "...reminiscent of a cross between Garrison Keillor and Phillip Gulley." (gulp!)
But the best? ((holding back tears)) Southern Lady magazine:  "....Kathie Truitt is the southern voice of great storytelling." Please tell me I'm not dreaming!!!

And this is my new author photo with my two best friends who also happen to be characters!

That's right! Violet and Sally are fixtures in the plot. There was a similiar pose that was actually better of me, but not the girls and of course since they're the stars of the show we (Sally, Violet and myself) had an emergency meeting and they decided that it was best to portray them in the best light, rather than me.  I totally concur - after all, who am I?  Only the author.

Still no release date. We will let you know as soon as we hear the news.

Til next time,

Kathie, Violet and Sally
