Tuesday Tidbit

So last night I was in the kitchen, leaning back against the counter eating ice cream with friends and family when … a HUGE spider raced nearly across my feet. HUGE. I jumped into the air and onto the counter with just the power of my butt cheeks.

Alpha Man caught him and said it was a wolf spider.

Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how unhappy I was. Everyone was forced to search the entire kitchen for the rest of the wolf spider’s family. We didn’t find any. Which is a good thing or I’d be moving right about now. Across the country.

Oh! And LOST AND FOUND SISTERS was found in JFK airport in NY! This did ease my pain somewhat… To ease my suffering, where have you seen my new book??

  2. I have to say I haven’t been out shopping lately. My husband is having back problems so we have been running back & forth to doctors trying to get him fixed up. But it’s on my Kindle.

    We have Wolf Spiders here in central Texas also & they can be very big!

    Take care & hope you have a great day

  3. Lol. Them wolf spiders are the size of a small dog. I hate them too. I’ve been seeing you books in Barberton,Ohio. At Marc’s, Target, and KMart etc. I’ve read it an now I have to wait for the next one which is so hard. Lol. Thank you for the morning laugh. Love you blog. Have a spider free day!

  4. In my hands! Love-ing it!!!

  5. I’m not a fan of spiders. I was bit by a brown recluse when I was in high school. I ended up in hospital for a week. I haven’t been out shopping lately. Next time I’m at Books A Million I will look for it!

  6. On my Kindle! It was really good!

  7. I got mine from Amazon. I think I have seen it at Costco and Walmart in Sterling, VA. Loved it!!!

  8. I had a mouse in the bedroom the other night. Still hasn’t been found. My cats are failing at their jobs. :-(

    I’ve seen it at the Target in Harrisonburg, VA. I haven’t been to many stores lately.

  9. Are those spiders scarier than the bears?????

  10. Sounds kind of like my night, I was doing the dishes and had just dumped two pans I had been soaking, when i saw something move…..A mouse had somehow fallen into the sink and had been stuck there. Hell no…Screamed and both my husband and son came running…only to laugh at me saying it’s only a mouse… Where I just had my hands!!!!!!

  11. only on kindle only place i look !!!

  12. I just finished Lost and Found Sisters. I loved it. I was so sorry to come to the end of the book. I’ve loved every book you’ve written. This was no exception!

  13. We have brown recluse spiders in Missouri. They are worse than black widows. My son has found them in his apt and I told him to move and he just laughs at me.

  14. Here in Oklahoma I’ve only seen empty shelves where “Lost and Found Sisters” use to be ! Congrats !!!

  15. I have to tell you how very very much I enjoyed your book Lost and Found Sisters. I have to confess that I reserved it at my library and was the first to get it! I lived it so much that I will be buying my own copy and adding it to my own library. Thanks for a wonderful reading adventure and PLEASE write another soon!

  16. I’m sorry but I haven’t been out in the wild much to check any stores BUT I DID read it and loved it! And tell me AM was impressed with your jump. :yes:

  17. In my hands then on my bookshelf for safe keeping. What a wonderful story!

  18. Hi Jill I just finished “lost and found sisters” I know you must have answered this question hundreds of time .. where did you come up with those heartfelt amazing Tilly quotes prior to each chapter? One of my most favorite is “why can’t everything be as easy as getting fat” story of my life! Thank you for giving me places to escape to when I need it most.

    Leslie ❤️

  19. In my bag to be read next!

  20. :smile: Lost and Found Sisters is right here in my living room. I just started reading it this morning. I’m loving the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. :grin: Is The Mixed Up Files of Tilly Adam’s Journal” for real? :lol: Once I finish laundry & some other fun things I will go back to reading. :heart:

  21. What a great read Lost And Found Sisters!! I’m keeping it not going to give that one to my Local Library..

  22. In my library network (29 towns) there are 15 copies of your book spread around to share in various stages either checked out, in transit or on order. I was lucky I’ve got mine.

  23. Ugh!! That is scary!! Do wolf spiders live in wood piles? I still haven’t physically seen your book, just on the amazon site.

  24. I found my copy at WalMart in Omak, WA. Am about 3/4 through and loving it. Somehow I hear your voice when Quinn speaks, based on the adventures that we hear about on your blog.

  25. First of all I saw your book on the bookshelf at Chapters in Winnipeg, MB. I NEEDED a great easy summer beach read to start off my summer and your book of which I have only 50 pages left to read but night is calling is one I have not CHEATED on. Yes, I am teacher-librarian cheat read. I read ahead, I read the end and then I go back and read the whole book and finish it. Your story has me not cheating and that is always a great sign for me. Secondly, I buy Woman’s World weekly or download it when I can’t get to the store from the Public Library. Low and behold your book is pictured and I laugh because I often get a lot of let’s relax it’s summer reading recommendations from this magazine. You have made me laugh as I read outside on my gravity-free chair surrounded by my one naughtily male cat Kali (aka Cauliflower) and my sweet Tusamee (not Sunamee!). With my feet in my baby pool of water in my deck, my neighbours could hear me laughing. I loved a phrase so much I bookmarked it with a copper bookmark. And as a teacher-librarian of teens your journal entries, well I want to plaster them all over my library walls. Tomorrow I will finish your book. Thanks Jill. PS I share my books too and so my whole female reading staff will be reading you as well. Blessings.
