‘Ruthie Leming’ In Dallas

Greetings from DFW Airport. Headed in a few minutes to the Mobile, Alabama, for tomorrow’s reading at the Page & Palette in Fairhope. Not much time to write this morning, but I wanted to let you know that I had a terrific time in Dallas. Last night’s reading at Barnes & Noble was very well attended, and we sold out every book in the house (over 80). It was so, so good to see so many old friends, to meet new ones, and to meet Lancelot Lamar and other blog readers. I wish I had at least one more day in Dallas to spend time with folks, but the relentless schedule of the book tour rolled Mono Boy out of bed at five this morning and sent me to the airport.

Over and over, I meet people at these events who, with tears in their eyes, ask me to sign a book in hope of healing a badly broken family relationship. A weeping woman last night asked me to sign a book for her mother, with whom she hasn’t spoken in 10 years. You might disagree, but I believe folks like this have a powerful intercessor in heaven in Ruthie Leming.

Before I get on the plane, here’s a podcast of my hourlong interview yesterday on Think, Krys Boyd’s excellent north Texas public radio show. I believe you can click on that link and listen online if you like. And here’s a clip of my interview on a Dallas TV station. I really, really love Texas, especially Texas people. Especially Texas women (hell, I’d better; I married one!):
