Me and Potpourri

Sounds like a book title, right?

I absolutely love promoting others on my blog and it’s been a very long time since I posted anything about ME. 🙂 So here goes, and a little fun music as well.

Last weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to deliver copies of my two latest books to the Coleman Public Library. It’s always a great feeling to know your books are sitting on a library shelf.

Jan Sikes and Sue Dossey – Coleman Public Library

From there I drove on to Abilene, Texas for the first music festival of the year, Outlaws and Legends Music Festival. I have been working the VIP and artist gate at that festival for 9 years, so it’s a standing event.

Thursday night was a volunteer appreciation party with a great meal and entertainment.

This short video was taken on Thursday and not even half of the campers had arrived yet. We wound up with close to 20,000 in attendance (people, not campers).

Whitey Morgan Thursday night

I absolutely love Whitey Morgan‘s music, so it was a big treat to get to see him perform!

Fridays are always a full day for me and I seldom get to hear any music on that day. This time I was at my gate from 9 am to 10:30 that night. As soon as I could close it, I headed to the motel, exhausted.

Oh, did I mention it was windy? Yep, it was.

These pictures are from Saturday. I SO enjoyed getting to hear some great music that day!

Saturday night, not being so exhausted, I stayed for the after-party for more from Whitey Morgan and a new artist to me, Kendall Marvel. Both fantastic! And I even got to dance a couple of times. Then it was over until next year. There will be more music festivals for me this year, but this one kicked off the season.


Now to shift gears to another ME topic – my books and some awesome reviews!

The always amazing Sally Cronin posted a wonderful review for GHOSTLY INTERFERENCE this week.

By the way, the Amazon eBook price for GHOSTLY INTERFERENCE is reduced! Whoo-hoo! Now’s a great time to grab a copy, if you haven’t already.

Then N.N. Light’s BookHeaven posted a fabulous 5-Star review for JAGGED FEATHERS!

I’d be honored if you’d stop by both reviews and leave a comment and share! Seriously, I would!

I have a newly designed, spiffy website! Take a look and let me know what you think!

That’s about it from the ME front. My two youngest grandchildren have sustained injuries on the school playgrounds in the past two weeks, so don’t know what’s up with that, but they will both be fine.
