Jason And Katie Mitchell To Sign Book At McKay Used Books

Friday, January 31, 2014

Local authors Jason and Katie Mitchell will appear Saturday, Feb. 8, from 12:00 - 3:00 at McKay Used Books, CD’s, Movies, & More as they share and sign copies of their nonfiction book, Don’t Settle for a Fairy Tale: A True Love Story. 


Growing up, Katie and Jason dreamed of meeting their respective Prince Charming and Lady Love. But although they tried to pen their supposed soulmates into their life script, their “perfect matches” always wandered off the page. That’s because God had a bigger, better story in mind.


Don’t Settle for a Fairy Tale presents a radical, relevant perspective on love and romance as Katie and Jason share how their relationships with Jesus Christ and his astonishing answers to prayer united them in a grander story more beautiful than any they could have created.

Katie will also be sharing her whimsical rhyming children’s book, Dr. Hickerup: The Hiccup Healing Man illustrated by local artist, Chelsea Spring. She will be handing out free coloring pages designed by the illustrator to any children in attendance. There will even be a drawing for a free copy of the next upcoming book in The UP People children’s series, Mrs. Trimitup: The Magical Hairdresser. Visit the website at www.theuppeople.com.

Lock Her Up? - And Response

It's concerning that the Republican Party elite attending the recent convention would indict, convict and jail a political opponent, when the FBI found no criminal intent to compromise national security and no other law violations were found. This "lock her up" mob mentality is third world, over-the-edge behavior that has no place in a country based on the rule-of-law, where ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
