Girls Write Out
Friday, March 30, 2007

It's been a fabulously awful day. I'd explain, but really, just take my word for it. I'm too worn out to even complain in detail, so you know it's bad! I can only take this to mean that my book (which releases today!) is going to rock it and God is trying to humble me in full before it does. Yeah, that has to be it.

For those of you who don't know, "Split Ends" was born out of my fascination with hairstylist Nick Arrojo from "What Not To Wear". I needed Nick to cut my hair. I have awful hair and he takes big, bulky hair and makes it a sleek thing of beauty. I needed Nick. So I did the next best thing beside go to New York and humiliate myself as a bad dresser -- and the truth is, I'm not a great dresser. I know HOW to dress, I just don't bother -- which is probably worse than the clueless. But anyhoo, I found out how good stylists become great and the novel, "Split Ends" about Beverly Hills hairstylist, Sarah Claire Winston was born.

With Easter Break coming up, it's the perfect time-waster into complete relaxation and the next level in hair covetousness. Enjoy!

Congrats, Kristin!! Hopefully the satisfaction of getting the book released will cover for the nasty day. I'm with you on the nasty-day thing, so let's have a swig of java juice and share in the misery. (bad hair included - wow - it was frizz city today)

Aww, sorry to hear about the awful day. I'm imagining all sorts of house and mommy disasters. Either or all that get a big uh-oh.

BUT I'm excited about the new book, even if it will take who knows how long for the local stores to stock it. *sigh* The downsides of living in paradise.

Whoo hoo! I had been looking for the book just last week, no wonder I couldn't find it!

I hope your weekend gets better!

OH! In reference to you word "time-waster": Currently I am reading "The Rest of God" by Mark Buchanan. It's a book on keeping the Sabbath, and one of the things I have been thinking about a lot is how I sometimes feel guilty about reading books that are so-called "time-wasters". Meaning I sometimes feel guilty if what I am reading isn't teaching me something "new"; books that I can check off my reading "to do" list; moreover, allow me to feel like I have not been idle or "wasted-time". SO when I read "chic-lit" or fiction that isn't deemed "productive" then I feel a bit guilty. (although not enough to make me not read...but still it makes the reading not as fun and not at all restful!)

I am learning that this is incredilby silly!

We are meant to rest and enjoy life! And for me, it's sitting down with one of y'alls books (preferrably with a cup of coffee) and enjoying it without that nagging feeling that I should be doing something productive! Reading is a productive rest! Especially now that there is such a great genre of Christian writers to choose from!

With that said,I am going to go out and get "Split Ends" time wasted here!

OK I'm Done!

Kellie, bless you. And look at it this way, you'll learn how to become a fabulously expensive hairstylist. See? All is not lost. LOL Oh and my weekend is better. I slept in. I never do that, what a luxury!

I spent most of the night in the hospital, so it was great to wake up this afternoon and see an Amazon box sitting on the table. I jumped up and down and tried not to scream, much to the amusement of my parents.

We're already a whole week past spring break and so now I have finals and huge papers looming in the next few weeks. If I don't make straight As, you're to blame!

Split Ends vs. The Struggle for Democracy...hmm.

At 2:45 PM, Blogger Kristin said...

Kayla, back away from the book! Do your studying, do you want to turn out like me? A professional on all things useless! I didn't think so. KB

At 3:34 PM, Blogger Kayla said...

Kristin, I'm an English and psych double major. Talk about useless!

At 7:52 PM, Blogger Katie Johnson said...

I can't wait to read this latest book--it sounds too fabulous.

I do hope you're feeling better by now. It's awful to get beat up by one icky thing after another. But the good thing is that you'll sure appreciate tomorrow if it's a better day!

I'm saying a quick prayer for you that as soon as you open your eyes in the morning, your day is going to be wonderfully blessed from start to finish!

It might be the perfect timewaster...but I'm so blessed by reading your books, that I guess I'm just going to have to waste a little time to read it, and then review it...gotta get the word out about one of my favorite chick-lit authors....!

Deena has a great blog of reviews, you guys. I was browsing through last week and found several books I want to read.

At 10:19 AM, Blogger Crystal Laine said...

Kristin, I,too, am a big fan of Nick, so I'm particularly looking forward to reading Split Ends! I so would like to have great hair. My hair has been hideous since I was born, and no one has been able to cut it right. I think Nick would do it right...Sigh.
Bad days are bad. Bad days with bad hair are doubly so.

At 12:55 PM, Blogger Unknown said...

Can't wait to read the book. Sorry you had a bummer of a day....but hey, you survived it, right? LOL And sleeping in all weekend is a HUGE bonus!

At 1:07 PM, Blogger Margo Carmichael said...

Sounds like fun! I'm in the middle of the country, so far away from either NYC or BH. This should be interesting!

At 3:22 PM, Blogger Kristin said...

It's not Nick, girls, it's the training! Yes, he does have special talent (have you seen one of his razor cuts?) But Im telling you, my gal here in Cupertino, is FABULOUS!! She was trained by someone who went to Vidal Sasson in London and now she trains others. There are good arteests out there, I swear!

I absolutely love your books. I just discovered them a few months back. The first one I read was "What a Girl Wants" and I immediately knew after the first chapter that I just HAD to read everything you write! :) I have a muscle disease so it limits what I can and cannot do, and reading is one of those things I can do and truly enjoy. I love your books because they have integrity while be extremely entertaining. I'm going to pick up Split Ends as soon as I visit my local Christian book store!

Love in Christ,

mytKristin, do you think any of those fabulous hair artists would want to live in Fairmount, Indiana? (James Dean is buried here...sort of Hollywood...) Yeah, I thought not. Well, here you have to be careful. The last hairdresser I went to dated my brother and then he broke up with her, and well, would you want someone working on your hair who got mad at your brother every time she saw you?? (Gotta love small towns. Gack.)Probably easier to book a flight to your hairdresser.

Steph, I do hope your disease gets better. Thanks for reading my books, I hope they lighten the load! Kristin

Crystal, I think you might be out of luck. But Indy!!
