We Have Been To The Queendom!

Yes, that's her!!! The Sweet Potato Queen herself (she's the one in the sequins--ha ha ha), Jill Conner Browne! She held court at Barnes & Noble tonight, and, as you can see, Queen Penny & Queen Pam marched their noble a***es down to the event!
The "wannabe" queens arrived a full hour early and MAN ALIVE are we glad we did!!! We only arrived early so that we could grab a bite to eat, but lo and behold, there were already several gals with chairs claimed!! So, we were able to get an "A" ticket, load a couple of good chairs down with books, and then grab our food.
We sat on the fifth row back--primo seats dearies!!! Finally, HRH Jill arrived, told several amusing stories, read from her latest book, and answered questions. She is most accomodating--quite friendly, and very accessible. She acted as if she were willing to stay all night if required.
Anyhoo-after a time, it was photo op heaven!!! Queen Jill signed our books, even personalizing them, and allowed us to take as many pictures as we wanted!!!
It was tons of fun! Even saw some familiar faces in the crowd. But, alas, we had the best seats, and weren't going to go and make small talk for fear of losing them!!!
So, if you haven't read any of the Sweet Potato Queens books, hop, skip & jump to the local library or bookstore and pick them up! She has written, "The Sweet Potato Queens Book of Love" "The Sweet Potato Queens Big-Ass Cookbook & Financial Planner" "The Sweet Potato Queens Wedding Planner" (which on the flip side has "Guide To Divorce"), and "God Save The Sweet Potato Queens". The books are funny, raunchy, and southern with a capital SOUTH!!!!! If you want to know more before the stores/libraries open, check out the website at
Have a blast ! And sleep well my pretties!!!
