Jeffery McClanahan and Pamela Cumbie grew up in West Texas and now live in the DFW area. They write bestselling novels together under the delightful name of DIXIE CASH.
Their novels have wonderful titles, beginning with "Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash" (2004). They followed that with "My Heart May Be Broken But My Hair Still Looks Great" (2005); "I Gave You My Heart and You Sold It Online" (2006); and "Don't Make Me Choose Between You and My Shoes" (2008).
Now comes novel number five, also with a shoe theme (fettish?) -- "Curing My Blues with a New Pair of Shoes" --due out in July.
We've had several calls at Texas Star Trading Company -- http://www.texasstartrading.com/ -- about when the new book would be out and when the Dixie Cash sisters might come to Texas Star for a book signing.
Well, we've scheduled them for Saturday, August 8, from 1 to 3 p.m. Come by and meet the sisters, enjoy a few laughs, and pick up their new novel (and the older ones if you haven't read them).
We like having Jeffery and Pam at Texas Star for several reasons:
1. We sell a lot of their books.
2. Their books are fun to read.
3. Pam used to live in Abilene and still has a lot of friends here.
4. Readers enjoy meeting them because they enjoy meeting readers.
5. They like to shop at Texas Star and encourage others to do so.
Come see for yourself on Saturday, August 8. If you want to order the book or books in advance, call us at 325-672-9696 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
