Lisa Wingate To Visit Thurs

I'm giving up my Thurs posting day so Prairie Chicks can participate in the Lisa Wingate blog tour as she promotes the release of her newest book, Never Say Never. Excerpt

Lisa Wingate is a popular inspirational speaker, magazine columnist, and national bestselling author of several books, including Tending Roses, Talk of the Town, Drenched in Light, A Thousand Voices, and A Month of Summer. Her work was recently honored by the Americans for More Civility for promoting greater kindness and civility in American life. Lisa and her family live in central Texas.
 
 By participating in this blog tour, one person who comments on Lisa's interview will have their name entered for this fabulous Grandprize Drawing of Donetta and Imagene's Texas Road Trip Basket (approximate total value over $150). Take a Texas road trip, without ever leaving home! It contains:
 
- Daily Texas Series by Lisa Wingate:
  • Talk Of the Town
  • Word Gets Around
  • Never Say Never
 - The Blue Sky Hills Series by Lisa Wingate: 

  • A Month of Summer
  • The Summer
  • Kitchen 
- Beyond Summer (a special advance copy not available in stores until July 2010)
 
- Road Trip Snacks (Straight from Texas, of course!)
 
- Wrap it all up with a fuzzy, fleecy Texas throw blanket for those cold nights on the road (or curled up with your books!)

 
So come back here tomorrow and leave a comment with your email address, preferably using (at) and (dot) so the net spammers can't find you. Only those leaving an email address will be entered.
 
For this blog tour contest only, you have until midnight Feb 18th to leave a comment. I will randomly pick one person's name on Feb 19th to submit for the Grandprize drawing.

Hi everyone! I'd like to thanks the Prairie Chicks for having me here. I don't know how the weather is on the prairie, but here in Central Texas it can only be called a writer's day--rainy, cold, gray and misty. It's a perfect day for staying inside to curl up with the laptop and a favorite writing food!

Hope it's a good writer's day where you are. I just finished writing a Feb 2011 book for Bethany House, so right now am chillin' and catching up on all the things that get ignored when there's a deadline looming. This spring, I'll be writing another book for Penguin, which is pretty much how the last few years have stacked up. I've been writing for Bethany House on the CBA side and for Penguin in the ABA market, which is sometimes challenging, in terms of time management, but also great fun.

I'll check back for questions later in the day. In the meantime, happy writing and reading, all!

Hello Lisa
Glad you decided to stop by the prairies. It is a good writing day here too..grey, snowy and darn cold! We drove through the northwest corner of Texas a few years ago in late fall. We could see the storm down the road and drove right into it. You Texans surely know how to hold a storm!
Congratulations on your upcoming schedule. Hope you will join us again soon connie
p.s. we are fairly canny at holding a storm ourselves, such as the several days of minus 45 in December. We could use an inspirational talk in December and January.

Howdy, y'all. It's freezing down here in Houston, and raining cats and dogs. Happy to see you here, Lisa! I've got your interview running on my Double Booked site, too. Congrats on the awesome book. I've been telling all of my friends about "Never Say Never." Can't wait to see what's coming next!

So this is where you were hiding. I should have looked here sooner. No problem, you found the right post. :)
