I'm off to the Kansas Book Festival in Wichita. Tomorrow, I'll be at the opening ceremonies with 19 other writers, all of us selected as Kansas Notable Authors, based on books we published in 2006. For me, that's The Virgin of Small Plains, which is set in the Flint Hills north of Wichita. I'll get to receive my certificate (or whatever they give us) from the Lt. Gov., and all I'll want to do is talk politics with him, hee hee. He used to be head of the Kansas State Republicans, but he switched parties and our wonderful Dem. Gov., Kathleen Sebelius, talked him into being her running mate. I want to get him off in a corner and ask, "How does she do that?" because he's not the only person she has converted. A very persuasive woman, our Gov.!
There's a fancy gala tomorrow night, and then I'll be on a couple of panels on Saturday.
I'll see you Sunday!
