A few Common Threads have bound Shellie and River together and set them up for the Great Southern Wing and A Prayer Tour.
Both love promoting authors and all things related to words on their respective radio programs. ( All Things Southern and River Jordan Live )
They have matching recorders for those professional interviews with Book Sellers, readers, and book clubs.
Both have serious crushes on those grand babies and are a bit Braggalicious here and there.
The Native Southern Girls have a deep and abiding love for the deep South and the best of the things it has to offer. (Like boiled peanuts, crickets at night, heat lightning, and STORYTELLING.)
The list really goes on and on. But what the two authors didn't know during the planning of this wild, engaging multi-state romp was that they would both have books coming out next year with Penguin - and actually with the same editor.
It's a little Serendipty, Kezmit, and Divine timing all rolled into one. So stay tuned for more as Sue Ellen's Girl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson and Praying for Strangers by River Jordan make their respective debuts in 2011!
Thanks for following the tour updates and travel plans. Shellie and River hope to see you soonest in a city near you.
