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.

Roy Exum: He’s Exempt From Drunk

I love the old story about a popular Senator who, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was asked late one evening, “Sir, what if we get bombed?” to which came the quick reply, “I’d be absolutely delighted … I can get one of my aides to drive us home afterwards.” You think of stuff like that when word comes from Kentucky that state legislator Brandon Smith was caught driving erratically ...
