I don't have much news, but I wanted to invite you to visit kathleeneagle.com and peruse the updates. There's a new discussion guide for THE NIGHT REMEMBERS. I continue to show off my Barbie collection, and with over 50 vintage dolls and a growing pile of clothes, I'll be dressing and photographing dolls until the cows come home. And I've added more family photos. By popular request, I will be putting together a montage of "down memory lane" photos sometime this summer.
Let's see...news. My Tennesee Walker, Superstar, had her baby last week. It's a boy! I'll be showing him off soon, too--a black and white paint. The book I'm working on now features another Indian cowboy--one of my favorite kinda guys--and hiring a "horse hauler" to bring Superstar to Minnesota from way out in Oregon sparked ideas for some of the details in this story. It's in the early stages, so hard to talk about, but more later.
I hope you're enjoying the rites of spring. Ours include a little flower gardening, getting the pontoon unwrapped and back into the water, and heading out to South Dakota for Memorial Day. But tomorrow I'll be packing my weekend bag and for a trip to Nebraska with my friend and fellow writer Lois Greiman, whose UNZIPPED, a mystery from Bantam, will hit bookstore shelves at the end of this month. Lois is well-known for her historical romances set in Scotland. She's really excited about this book. Anyhoo, we're attending a big confab hosted by the Omaha and Lincoln librarians this weekend. If you're in the Lincoln area, there's a book signing open to the public. Details at www.kathleeneagle.com. And don't forget to visit www.midwestfiction.com for more book news from Minnesota authors.
