Greetings from Cowan’s Book Nook

Shellie: Oh, what a wonderful time we had at Cowan’s! Can’t wait to do some video editing of the conversations we had with readers and sellers about love of the story and state of the book. On the far right here is Melinda Cowan, owner, and her lovely staff, Ansley in the middle and Sharon on the far left. Somehow, in all the confusion, I missed taking pics of the customers, but they’ll be represented in the video clips~ We appreciate all of you! It was fun.

River: And the customers greatly appreciated our fun give-aways from Panola Pepper and Literary Threads. 


Shellie: Of course, after all that talking, we needed sustenance, which it just so happened was waiting for us around the corner at the Pig on the Hill.

River: As it happens, Gary an employee of the Pig and a Cowan customer had stopped in the bookstore to say hello and pick up a copy of a travel book on London he had ordered, a place he longs to travel to…

Shellie: While we oh, so badly wanted to buy a flag with our name on it and have it “planted on the hill”, (please note that the flags are in the shape of a pig),  we were flat out of time.

River: Slap out of time or not, we could not pass up a chance to ride the wild pig.

Shellie: Which, no doubt, increases our literary respectability and creds. See y’all in Chattanooga~

Keep reading and Keep Believing,

River and Shellie


  1. Love it!! Love it!! My prayers are with you both on this wild journey. Only wished they had strung lights around your marquee..'0)

  2. That's some picture of you and your girl riding the pig.But I think those are more for the people that usually ride those pigs like the kids that are 4 or 5 . But you do look cute.
