I got some very exciting news this week-actually it came by way of a Blind Pig reader-NCMountainWoman (THANK YOU).
Rob Neufeld writes a weekly book column for the Asheville Citizen Times-and last Sunday he mentioned my book! Here is what he said:
Tipper Pressley, “on a mission to celebrate the rich culture and heritage of her beloved Appalachian Mountains,” alights like a bee on flowers on 25 varied subjects in her photo and facing-page-caption book, “Appalachia Through My Eyes.”
Her nostalgia is a living one, for she perpetuates life-ways with her family—her husband, “The Deer Hunter,” her daughters, “Chatter and Chitter,” and elders in a Brasstown cove. She is a member of “The Read on WNC” social network and website, and the author of the heritage website, “Blind Pig & the Acorn.”
Now that made my day! And what better way to find out about the good news-than from one of you. Seems only fitting that this month’s giveaway should be a digital download of my book.
And the winner is…Kathryn Magendie-I hope you like it Kathryn!
