Scenes from the Bootylicious Booktour

I've got so many sole-ful experiences and photos to share from the ongoing Bootylicious Booktour, it's hard to know where to start. I know, I know. The longest journey begins with one step. One boot at a time.

So, from my visit to Quail Ridge Books--one of the most dedicated bookstores around-- in Raleigh last week, a few pics. I gave the bookstore a boot planter, pictured here, with succulents and a plant called "Jamaican Rope."

And speaking of cool names...While in Raleigh, I stayed a hotel called The Velvet Cloak. Named after the chivalrous Sir Walter of course, but it just sounded deliciously euphemistic. I'll meet you tonight at the Velvet Cloak-- that's the kind of text msg or tweet that might get you in trouble. Come to think of it, it's also the perfect name for some gorgeous dark rose.

Don't want to clog up the bandwidth, so I'll post just a few pictures every day. Tomorrow-- McIntyre's Fine Books.

Quail Ridge in Raleigh


  1. Taking in your pictures, I imagine it must be nothing short of the culmination of a significant, if not primary, dream to write books—stories—that you find personally meaningful and fulfilling, and then to see them published and ultimately warmly received by the public. I wish you a deep readership.

    Indeed, “The Velvet Cloak” is a decidedly delicious euphemism. I trust it had an equally delectable and salacious saloon as an apropos adornment to further invoke its surreptitious inference. If not, that’d be a shame. :)

  2. Thanks for the good wishes, and yes, for some reason this time documenting with my camera has been really fun and fulfilling.
