A couple of weeks ago, the day my book released, my good friend Sherry from Montana called to say she needed to buy an extra copy. Apparently she listens to Outlaw Country on XM Radio and decided that singer-DJ-radio-host Elizabeth Cook needed a copy of Honky Tonk Debutante so she could talk about it on [...]

Since my book released six whole days ago I feel like I am just starting to catch my breath after a rigorous autumn filled with near-unattainable deadlines careening toward me in what felt like an unceasing, suffocating pattern.

Next Time Loretta. Next Time.

I am a woman of limited interests. Other than my daughter, my family and close friends, I really only love two things: fishing and honkytonk music.
