MISTLETOE MARKETPLACE NOV 7-10, 2007 MISSISSIPPI TRADEMART JACKSON, MS

Please visit Ponder House Press Booth 409 in the central building of the Mississippi Trademart during 2007 Mistletoe Marketplace "Celebrate the South." Darden North (Points of OriginandHouse Call) will be joined by Alice Nicholas (Talk Football) and Billy Watkins (Apollo Moon Missions: The Unsung Heroes), making their novels and books available for sale and personal autographing.

Directions to Booth 409: Enter the main/central building. Our booth is just to the left of Center Court, about midway down. Lots of other great merchants are on our "street" at Mistletoe 2007. Also, I am pleased to announce that HOUSE CALL is now available in paperback. The hardcover edition is now out-of-print ... so hang on to your copy, or better yet, buy another hardcover copy of HOUSE CALL if you can find one. Only 7000 or so were printed! You never know! --- Darden
