The Best Cake Ever

By Kathryn Cushman / October 13, 2007 /

Tonight was the big book signing event “Locally Inspired: Promises, Chocolate, and Murder”. Kate Schwab, the incredible Borders event coordinator, had this cake made for the occasion. Is that the coolest, or what? It was a blast, and I’m amazed at how many people showed up (over 100 they say). I’ll post more pix in…

Here's to the mentors

Here's to the teachers!

By Kathryn Cushman / October 4, 2007 /

In this very grainy photo, the lady in the green was my 3rd grade teacher– Mrs. Trout. Every day I brought in a stack of stuff I had written, and every day she smiled at me and said, “Thank you, Katie. I can’t wait to read it.” As an adult, I know she must have…

By Kathryn Cushman / October 2, 2007 /

Today, I’m posting pix of my friends from high school (and before) who came to the Tennessee book signing. I hadn’t seen several of them since high school graduation, so it was almost like a mini-reunion. Rita has been a friend since junior high. I still see her when I come home for a visit–…

By Kathryn Cushman / September 29, 2007 /

After a week of travels, I got home to piles of laundry and a deadline! But, deadline has been met (barely) and my laundry is–well, honestly, most of it’s still in piles–but I’m making progress. For the next few days, I’m going to catch up with pix from my trip. Some from the ACFW conference,…

There's no place like hometown

By Kathryn Cushman / September 24, 2007 /

I had a blast at the ACFW conference last week (pictures will be posted after I get home). I flew straight from Dallas to Lawrenceburg, TN, my hometown. Tomorrow I’ll be signing books at The Christian Bookstore on the Lawrenceburg square. I’m so thrilled to have my book launch here, because many of the family,…
