You Might Win a Touch of WHIMSEY!

My thanks to Joanna
Campbell Slan for inviting me here to tell you about my new book.
Kaye Wilkinson Barley
My new book.
Never in a million
years did I think I would say those words.
But after having
gotten my toes wet writing a blog and then having two memoir pieces accepted
for publication in two regional anthologies, my writing urges went crazy.
The result is a book I
love.  It’s full of things I love, and
while I know it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s my heart. There’s a quote attributed to Toni Morrison that many of you have probably seen–“If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
I guess that’s what I

I’ve written the novel I wanted to write. It has magic and best girlfriends.
There’s pretty clothes and great food. There’s laughter and love and music. Art
and a perfect little gallery on a lovely little idyllic island in the
Lowcountry. There’s a ghost or two and a pixie named Earlene who happens to be
partial to Christian Louboutins. It’s impossible to put a tag on – kinda like
the most interesting people I know who refuse to be placed in a single
category. Eccentric and flawed. and fun.
And now, I hope to get
the word out there in hopes that others with discover the joy of Whimsey.
