A Good Bit Of Giddy-ing

First of all, I hope the predicted stormy weather will go ahead and move into Birmingham in the next hour or so because Hazel is on HIGH ALERT. Every little rumble of thunder sends her into watchdog mode because CAREFUL OR THE SKY WILL ATTACK US ALL, and I don’t think my nerves would mind the opportunity to SIMMER ON DOWN.

Second of all, I have been dealing with a sinus infection / barking cough all week, and the current state of my voice might cause you to think that my preferred snack for the last 20-odd years has been a pack of Marlboro Reds along with a bottomless mug of scalding black coffee.

Basically I am one of Homer Simpson’s sisters.

Third of all, how are y’all? Delightful, I hope.

We are officially in the wind-down part of the school year, which means I find it nearly impossible to get out of bed in the mornings. As soon as I hear my alarm, my first thought is typically this:


Somehow, though, we will power through, and one day in the not-so-distant future I will turn off that alarm and LO, I WILL SAVOR SOME SLEEP.


It occurred to me earlier tonight that I had neglected to share some important book-related news here on the blog. So here it is.


All you have to do is pre-order Giddy Up, Eunice from your favorite retailer, then go back to the Giddy Up website and upload a picture / screenshot / PDF that confirms your purchase. You can also download the first chapter and GET TO READIN’.

So. That is all of my news. I hope y’all have the best weekend.

And please, by all means, giddy up.

    Love you Sophie Hudson and love your stories!!! :-) God bless you.

  2. Just because I’m curious – when will the kindle edition be out?

  3. You don’t know me at all, so this is probably weird, but I totally had a dream last night about going out for Mexican food with you, me, and our pal Eunice. Apparently I am eager for your new book 😉

    Ugh, yes, here in Nashville our storms caused some flooding in the northern part of the state, but near me, they were just loud enough to be disruptive to the pets and kiddos. Yikes. Also, I just pre-ordered and submitted the form for the promotion (what a great promotion!!) Looking forward to a good read and to sharing the 2nd copy.

  5. We Canadians are not immune to some good readin’… I am looking forward to purchasing a copy on pre-order! (And my mind will TRY to read it with that southern drawl that I love so much but I fear the odd “eh” might slip in there without warning… eh.)
    Feel better soon!

  6. Heather says:

    I am having trouble getting my receipt submitted to your publisher. I pre ordered my copy a few months ago so I am so excited about the BOGO but every time I submit it, it keeps coming back a day later as a delivery fail. I don’t want to miss out! I also sent an email to where to ask questions for help and even that came back! What should I do?

  7. Melanie says:

    Same as Heather above! I am having trouble getting my receipt submitted to your publisher. I am sure it will get worked out in time.

  8. Hate to nitpick, but Patty and Selma are not Homer’s sisters. Patty and Selma are Marge’s sisters.
