Hello, I'm blogging with author Mimi Barbour
those of you who are new to Mimi Barbour’s books here is a short bio. Mimi took
early retirement to spend her days and many nights hovering over her computer
to spin stories that have been vying for her attention over the years. She
tells me her husband is supportive and feeds her and even plans occasional
forays into the outside world. She has a son who makes her happy she was born a
woman so she could be his mom. Gardening lights her inner fires, and she needs
no urging to get out into the yard when the weather dictates. Other hobbies
beckon, such as quilting, crocheting, but alas when the computer entices she
has no time. Her books include the Vegas Series and Angels with an Attitude
Hi Mimi, I’m so glad you could stop by to talk about your Elvis contest.
Please tell us about it.
After I listened to an old Elvis Presley hit called “She’s Not You”, I couldn’t get the words out of my head. Finally, it came to me. The sentiments were so beautiful that the story they told should be written. So, I wrote the first chapter and the song stopped haunting me. I released book #1 of the Elvis Series late in November 2013.
When it came time to decide which of Elvis’s song should be chosen for Book #2, I decided who better than the readers themselves to make the choice.
“Make an Elvis song into a book contest!”
Here it is live for the whole month of February.
Please let all your friends know about it!
Tell your mom and her pals who grew up with the King!
