Nobody can make you feel inferior

Something to think about....
First I was dying to finish high school and start college.
And then I was dying to finish college and start working.
Then I was dying to marry and have children.
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough
so I could go back to work.
But then I was dying to retire.
And now, I am dying . . .
And suddenly I realized I forgot to live.
So here it is October! My favorite month of the year. It even feels like October today, here in Nashville. I have windows open to let in the cool fresh air. The skies are blue and clear and the sun is shining for all those sun-lovers. It just makes me want to go sit on a pumpkin and look for Charlie Brown!
I hope each of you had a wonderful September. I had a very exciting one. But my most exciting news is that my latest book—number nine and second nonfiction—is now available. Not just available—but available and FREE!
Yes, free. Peggy Elam, my publisher, and I decided that this would be a good idea. The title is Something To Think About: Reflections on Life, Family, Body Image & Other Weighty Matters by the Queen of Rubenesque Romances. Download your free PDF ebook at: http://www.pearlsong.com/newsroom/patballard/somethingtothinkabout.pdf
I hope you enjoy it. If you do, pass the word on to your friends.
And for all you fiction lovers, I'm busily working on my next romance novel.
Everyone have a wonderful October!

George Carlin Was Right:
I’m going to write something here that may garner me a few enemies, but in my ample experience, it’s the truth.
If something promises you weight loss, it’s bullsh*t. In fact, as George Carlin said, “It’s bullsh*t, and it’s bad for ya.”
