Lorelei Books to Host Author Shellie Rushing Tomlinson Book Signing Tomorrow




Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy: The Belle of All Things Southern Dishes on Men, Money, and Not Losing Your Midlife Mind. The bestselling author of Suck Your Stomach In & Put Some Color On! returns with more helpful how-to’s and keen observations from Dixie. Guided by principles from the ancient Belle Doctrine, the host of radio and television’s All Things Southern offers down-home advice on everything from health and fitness-managing thy caloric calculations without going Straight Running Crazy and surviving the Raging Inferno Syndrome (aka hot flashes)-to the Southern art of handling your man (Bubba Whispering). Whether giving business tips or debunking the Big Boned Theory, making political observations or celebrating the inevitable resurgence of big hair, Shellie is an adviser women can relate to and laugh with regardless of their age or which side of the Mason-Dixon they call home. As an infant, Shellie Rushing Tomlinson had one of the earliest cases of appendicitis ever documented. Fifty-four doctors came to Natchez, MS to study her case. In retrospect, Shellie believes it may have been better had they studied her brain for she admits to hearing voices. After briefly considering medication Shellie chose a career in storytelling to give them all a chance to be heard. It’s working out pretty well. Today this author, speaker, newspaper/magazine columnist, and Belle of All Things Southern entertains audiences on the radio, TV, and web, in a full out celebration of the South with a heavy emphasis on faith, friends, and family. Shellie’s gift is mining the exquisite from the ordinary. A list of the radio affiliates airing Shellie’s daily segments can be found at along with her weekly video porch chat. Shellie also produces and hosts All Things Southern LIVE each Monday evening from 5:00 to 6:00 P.M. CST on TALK 540 KMLB out of northeast LA. The show streams live and podcasts are archived so everyone can join Shellie’s southern celebration. Whether sharing her love of story, interviewing radio guests, or interacting with readers thru Facebook and Twitter, Shellie’s passion for life has proven to be highly contagious. Shellie’s first Penguin Group USA release, “Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On” was chosen as a SIBA Nonfiction Book of the Year 2009 finalist.]]]]> ]]>
