Hey, if anyone is near St. Maries, Idaho, I'll be doing a booksigning for The Simplicity Primer tomorrow (Saturday) from 1-3 pm, sponsored by The Paper House (822 Main Street).

I realize this is (cough) a little out of the way for most folks, but I'd love to meet any local readers. Hope to see some of you there!


  1. Wish I was close by. The wife and I have been looking in the St Maries area for property. Is a bit difficult when we still live in the Washington DC area. But somewhere between there and Coeur d'Alene is where we would love to finally land.


  2. Cool!! I can finally post again! (And no..I haven't been some plug-in/add-on issues I think.)

    Girl, I'm so proud of you.

    When you get out here to sign books on the western peninsula I've got your room ready, and I'll do all the cooking!


  3. I finally downloaded your book this week on my Nook. I am at a loss for words on how wonderful it is!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing such a practical, inspiring, book. If you are ever in our area our door is open for you to kick up your feet and rest for awhile. Your book will will bless so many families for generations to come.

  4. Aww, thanks Debby. You're very kind.

  5. My wife's been taking forever to read her copy of The Simplicity Primer that I gave her for Christmas. I asked he what's she doing, memorizing it? She loves it, as I'm sure I will. Wish we could go to one of your signings, Patrice. We would love to meet you, but north Idaho is a long way from Arizona and we have no money for traveling. However, my oldest sis who lives in Cheney, WA, might be able to make it. Hope so! She'd love to meet you, too. Hope you have a good turnout! --Fred in AZ
