Kat Magendie is here! Come sit on the porch with us!

She's here!!!  The ever-talented Kathryn Magendie is here to share a little bit from her second book, Secret Graces, due out this April!  If you haven't already read the predecessor, Tender Graces, (what's wrong with you?) get out and snag it up...because it's one of those that stay with you.  The characters are so very real, and the writing will make you wish for that much talent.

I'm so excited and honored that Kat came over here to hang out with me.  So kick back with a cup of coffee...find your favorite comfy chair...and get ready to spend a few minutes listening to "Virginia Kate" from Secret Graces.

Wasn't that awesome??  Don't you just love the dogs?  LOL!  
Thank you so much, Kat for coming!  Can't wait till April to see what comes next for Virginia Kate.  You're the best, girl!

I forgot if I am supposed to behave on Kat’s friends sites, hmm oh well.
It’s great seeing Kathryn, bonus having her read a piece of her new book.
The dogs did try to steal the show.
Must have learned that from Kathryn.
Sadly I haven’t read Tender Graces, it’s my eyes you understand.
I bumped my head as a kid and now my left eye only sees far left and my right only sees far right.
It’s why I keep ending up in the bathtub instead of on the toilet because I keep choosing to sit left.
I sat right once.
Had forgotten about the plunger being on that side.
Trust me; left is a good choice.
All the best with the new book, I keep asking at my bookstore like I always do when I go in and don’t go off traipsing around trying to find out what critter is in pain and get your butt bit off by a bear or rabid chipmunk

Kat, I love you. You're amazing. Your writing is breathtaking and alive. And, Sharla, how the heck have you been? Great to see you doing well. Hugs to you both. ;-)

Wonderful interview. I just love Kat's live readings! Can't wait for Secret Graces to hit the shelves. Thanks Sharla and Kat!

Kathryn Magendie said...

Hi Walker - you crazy man! *laugh*

Hi Deb S....makin' me blush...

Deb- my mom came by, so did some friends, but they don't have blogs so couldn't comment - but said "hi!" and liked the vid, etc :)

Alissa said...

Very nice reading. Loved the beautiful setting. It's perfect!

Kathryn Magendie said...

Hi Alyissa - thank you!

When spring and summer are here, it's so breathtaking - we have such lush summers with all the green, but in spring, everything flowers it seems and that flowering lasts even through the summer--- one of my faves is the Tulip Poplar tree with its tulip-shaped flowers.

Thank you Sharla, for bringing Kat to your blog. I'm a little late dropping by, but it's always a pleasure to hear Kat read! I love the windchimes swaying in the mountain wind. Best of luck with the new book. I'm already chompin' at the bit to read it. :)

Hey girl! Everything looks awesome!

Kate and Sharla: Thanks for the great experience. Kate, you made me cry; Not a bad sort of cry, just feeling kinship w/ the character, as read by your voice. Great visuals now in neural pathways to take me on my way.

Critter sound reminds me of when the coyotes would run under the pole house at night in E TX. Scare the beejeesus out of me the first few times. Now we got coyotes in Portland neighborhoods and when they cry, I smile. It's all relevant isn't it. Thanks!

Suzette Saxton said...

Wow, what a porch! And I could hear the critter crying.

That was really, really neat. The only thing neater would be to be there in person!

Thanks, Sharla, and thanks, Kat!

Girls, I have been meaning for DAYS to come to this post. I'm so sorry it's taken me so long; I feel like the end person in a race.

Kat, you are darling. Loved your casual hair, your plaid shirt, and the whole feel of your porch there. Your writing is wonderful, and you were awesome to let us hear you read it.

Sharla, great hostess! Loved this idea of a video. Hugs!
