Comments: 3Q with Susan Gregg Gilmore

"we were both as twitchy as coked-up squirrels over it. She was worried she would get light headed and faint, which is at least a LADYLIKE way to panic. I, meanwhile, was threatening to vomit"

You just keep on givin' it away for free. . .your blog is the reason I bought your first novel. . .and I feel like every entry here at FTK is Christmas. Coked-up squirrels? I must go and find Ray Stevens on you-tube and listen to his famous song. . .

I am having to laugh at myself after my comment, because it dawned on me that only a southerner would consider "The Mississippi Squirrel Revival" a "famous" song--or even KNOW who Ray Stevens is. I may have him with a side of Jerry Clower then fix crowder peas and cornbread for lunch.

Hey, Roxanne, I knew exactly what you were talking about in your first comment before reading your second comment. Oh wait, I'm a Southerner too. Oh well.

Can I share the peas and cornbread?

I love Susan's explanation of the title of her book. I've seen it at the bookstore and had wondered. Now I'm going to have to buy it. Thanks, Joshilyn!

Thanks Joshilyn for following up on "your favorite authors" blog I planted in your brain that night at the Decatur library. This one has been ordered...
