How do I go about getting a personalized, signed copy of your newest Fried Chicken and Wine book? I know I can pick up a signed copy from Lemuria, but I’d like to have one personalized for my mother for Christmas.
We love your work!
If you get one at Lemuria, you can request to have it personalized and I will do it the next time I’m in the store.
Marshall, your comments under the cartoon this morning about Zig was great. How do I get a copy of your cartoon on the 7th anniversary of Katrina, with the lighthouse? I want to frame it to send to my brother in law in Biloxi.
Marshall, I’d like 22 (sic) of your books per our conservation the other day. How do I accomplish that?
I e-mailed you! Thank you.
After listening to you talk about Zig Ziglar yesterday, I wanted to tell you my story of meeting Mr Ziglar. Growing up I often heard my Father talk of his friends. He grew up in the illustrious town of Yazoo City. One day when I was around 6 the front door bell rang. This was really strange because no one came to the front door. Imagine my surprise when I opened the door to see this tall stranger with his hand extended. Being the proper young lady that I was I knew to stuck my hand out as a greeting to this odd fellow. He placed something in my hand. He told me that I was now a proud owner of a “round to it”. Zig Somebody is here, I shouted as I ran off. He did, however, impress my teenage brother as he took us for a ride in his Bentley.
Lots of requests in Greenwood. How can we sell the book?
Thanks, Jamie @ Turnrow
I would love to purchase a copy of your Zig cartoon and frame it. Is that possible?
Thank you for the Zig article in today’s paper. It moved me. I hope it moves others who may be struggling; it is possible to come out on the other side. Thanks for reminding me to always reach: whether it is down to pull someone up, out to encourage others; and up to aspire to be the best one can be. You Rock Marshall! Your neighbor, Laurie
Your cartoons always make my day! The only thing better is your short stories.
I would love for you to come to Starkville and sign copies of your latest book. Any chance this could happen? We have had so many of our customers requesting you and your book. Please let me know if this is a possibility.

Are there any more book signings planned for the Jackson area besides the one tonight at Lemuria ?
Your radio talk program in the afternoon was informtive & enjoyable.
Lately you are not there ?
Have you got promoted to TV perhaps, on extended vacation or some announcement
that I missed?
ps I like your cartoons also–ref. in CL
Thanks for a reply
No, I was fired. They cancelled the show. Thanks for listening.
This makes me sad. I looked forward to hearing from you every day!
They should never have cancelled you. I was a constant listener. Now I change the station.
I MISS YOUR RADIO SHOW!!!!!!! IT WAS COOL!!!! THE ONLY ONE THEY HAVE ON NOW THAT I LIKE IS LARGE LAWSON.
Could you tell me the name of the Christmas book you illustrated and where I can find it?
Thank you !
There are two: The Best Christmas Ever by Dave Ramsey (daveramsey.com) and Santa’s Wish by Santa. (http://www.circle504records.com/)

Did you ever get the name of the book written by a weather man, that you interviewed? Thanks
It’s Raining Fish & Spiders” By Bill Evans
IT’S SAD THAT SOMEONE CAN WALK IN SOMEWHERE AND START SHOOTING CHILDERN AND ADULTS. OUR COUNTRY DON’T NEED NEW GUN LAWS JUST SMARTER PEOPLE USEING GUNS. GUNS IS A TOOL–IT IS USE FOR HUNTING, SELF-DEFENCE, AND TARGET PRACTICE ON PAPER TARGETS AND TIN CANS.
LIKE EVERY MASS SHOOTING IT IS REALLY SAD. I heard that most all mass shooting happens at gun-free envirnment or gun-ban.
p.s. i miss your radio show.
Where can I order a copy of Fried Chicken and Wine?
Can you please email me a publisher contact for your book? I would like to buy stock to sell in local Books-A-Million stores.
I WOULD LIKE TO SELL YOUR BOOK FRIED CHICKEN AND RICE IN MY BOOKSTORE-COTTON ROW BOOKSTORE, 333 COTTON ROW, CLEVELAND, MS 38732—EMAIL (email@example.com). would you let me know how to order?
Yearly, our chamber joins forces with our community college and offers a great lunch and learn event, and I’d love to talk to you about coming this year as our speaker. Is this a possibility? Our date is set for late March so I look forward to hearing from you soon. I have my hopes up and fingers crossed.
By the way…I picked up your book at Mistletoe Marketplace as a present for my husband. He really enjoyed it…and now it’s my turn!
Marshall – My girlfriend is a big fan, and I wanted to get her a personalized copy of your new book before her birthday this weekend. Would that be possible?
Tru Lemuria. If you get it this morning, I can stop by this afternoon and personalize it.
Thanks, Marshall. The book is purchased and waiting at Lemuria. I really appreciate it.
I am reading aloud your book “Fried Chicken and Wine” as a gift for my mother. I just wanted to let you know in case you don’t already that there are many little typographical errors in the text. I’m enjoying the stories and I will continue with my project, but I invariably have to fill in an article or word here and there to make the sentence make sense. If I planned on keeping this signed copy of the book for myself, I would have highlighted the errors and noted them for you but I plan on sending the book on with the recording. Just one example from the chapter I just read. On page 113, line 7 it reads “David limped the plane over a nearby hangar…” Since the plane was already on the ground, I assume that this was supposed to read “over to a nearby hangar”. This type of error occurs multiple times in most chapters. This is a very minor issue when reading to yourself, but it really trips up someone reading aloud. Please take this information just as it is, information, and not a criticism of the work. I just thought if there comes a time for a second printing or a sequel, a close inspection of the text would be warranted. Thanks for all you do and the good thoughts you provide for us in your cartoons, radio and writings.
I absolutely love your book “Fried Chicken and Wine”. I received a signed copy as a Christmas gift. I really miss your show on the drive home – some folks in the radio business just don’t know good when they’ve got it. I hope that you continue your writing and publish another book very soon.
Marshall, I just ordered your book through Dave’s website (the 48 hour special – I am frugal!!). Are those shipped from him or are you shipping them? The reason I ask is if you are sending it, could you possibly autograph it? I understand if you left some with his organization to be shipped from there. Just thought I would ask. If you should see one coming to Lucedale to Mr. H*****, that would be my Mr. H.
Would it be possible to get a print of one of your ANG C-17 works? I think you did one on their initial arrival and then another of the MS Capital fly over. Would prefer to email the conversation if possible.
I’ll e-mail you today.
Thanks, I look forward to finding out about them.
Hey there…any chance of purchasing one of the C-17 ‘toons…haven’t got a message yet.
Who can I order your book from? I live in NY and no one her seems to carry it.
http://www.lemuriabooks.com THank you!

Mr. Ramsey — I have followed you for so long, love your editorial cartoons, your work with the cancer groups and your bent toward fitness.
I am the PR/Media Chair for the MS Walks in MS for the MS/AL Chapter of the National MS Society.
We would be so thrilled and honored to have a signed book to give away or a cartoon drawn for us — we’d just be beside ourselves!
I can have our NMSS Walk Chair contact you if need be but I’d love to work on this with you if at all possible.
Thank you so much for your time.
Good morning! My name is Michelle Nicholson and I am the Greenville Rotary program chair for first quarter of this year! Our president sent me an email saying that he saw that you recently spoke at the Jackson Rotary club, and wanted me to contact you! I think you would make an awesome speaker/program. We meet every Thursday at noon at the Greenville Country Club. The following are the days we have open…

My name is Jeremy Lindsey, and I am a senior at Provine High School in Jackson, MS. I am currently enrolled in senior advanced seminar and part of the requirement for the completion of the course is that I complete a portfolio. In addition to making a product, I have to have 15 hours of mentoring by someone who works in the field that I’ve chosen. I have several questions about the creation of cartoons and how they are used. Because of your experience with cartoons, I believe you would be the best person to mentor me. Will you please consider being my mentor?
There are several typos and misleading text. I like the book but I expected more from you.
Thank you for mentioning the typos. THe book will be re-edited for the second printing. Not sure what you mean by “misleading text” but I’m sure that will be corrected as well. As for you expecting more from me, I’m sorry you are so disappointed. I guess I’ll have to find the strength to go on. Thanks for writing.
Hello, Mr. Ramsey. My name is Jeremy Lindsey. You still have not answered my question? You’ve answered someone else’s posted comment, but I is still have no answer from you. It’s fine, but to save me some time, could you please read my last comment which I posted January 24th, 2013. Again, my name is Jeremy Lindsey, and I am willing to know what you think about my question. Thank you so much.
Jeremy, I haven’t answered you because I haven’t decided whether or not I can take you on as a shadow. I am looking at my schedule today or tomorrow for the next two months. I am a part-time employee now and barely have time to do the work I am asked to do. I’d love to help you out someway but would ask you please respect the fact that if I haven’t answered you, it is for a good reason.
Oh it’s okay! I respect you. After all, you seemed pretty busy anyway. I do apologize for for that. I understand that you have a lot of important things going on. I shouldn’t be impatient. Please forgive me.
Happy New Year and Congratulations on your incredible book; Fried Chicken and Wine!
Can you send us two dozen more – we’re SOLD OUT!
How is your new book coming along? Please come sign with us when it’s released. Starkville LOVES MARSHALL RAMSEY!!

Is there a way to get a print of your recent USM Ogle Tree House cartoon?
Dear Mr.Ramsey, my name is Eve and I heard about you on Dave Ramsey. I am eleven years old and am a writer. I have written several books and want to get them published. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on publishing my books or what I need to do next.
Hi – can I purchase the USM Alumni House cartoon from you? I lived in that house as a child.
PS – the “Store” link on this website doesn’t work.
Do you have an archive of your past cartoons? I’m looking specifically for one from 2002 or 2003. Thank you!
Sorry. There is no archive. The Clarion-Ledger doesn’t archive my work.
I have some questions about your upcoming 5K and would like for you to contact me at the included email address. Thanks!
Recently finsihed your Fried Chicken & Wine book. Although I enjoyed the stories, I was disappointed in the profanity that was splattered throughout the book. Had I known that was your writing style, I would not have purchased the book.
Sorry you were so offended. The profanity was very, very limited and light and only used in a place where a gosh or shucks would not work.
You may already be aware of this, but there are typos or wrong words on 19 pages of Fried Chicken & Wine. I do editing at work, so I couldn’t help but notice the mistakes as I read the book. Would be glad to share them with you if you wish.
Since you are so easily offended by my profanity, I have decided to have it re-proofread by another proofreader who is not offended by the word Hell. Thanks for your kind offer, though.
Thank you for speaking at the Welcome Neighbor Luncheon today. You were so delightfully entertaining, funny, inspiring and encouraging. It was awesome for us to get to know you up close and hear about your first job as a college graduate, how you met your wife, see lots of your cartoons and hear about trials you have overcome. What an inspiring speaker you are and you are funny too!
Thank you for taking the time to share at our meeting and we look forward to reading your book Fried Chicken and Wine. Also, thank you for loving Mississippi and staying here with your family and doing life. We know you could be anywhere you want to be, yet you choose to stay in Mississippi. How blessed we are! Keep up the awesome work! Thanks again! Judy Watts, programs WNC
Was looking at your cartoons on cagle.com. Great stuff. Love your humor and drawing style. Your an inspiration.
Hi Marshall – I’m interested in licensing a comic for a short run of mugs (~150) to use for staff party favors. Would you email me?
We would like to use your editorial cartoon for Starkville and West Point. Can you let us know the cost
Don Norman, Publisher
I would like to talk to you regarding using some of your cartoons on a social media site for a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Could you e-mail me? Thank You!!
We would like to use one of your editorial cartoons for a Social Studies Assessment. Can you let us know the cost
Marshall, Hi! I’m Peggy Welch. I’m originally from Clinton, but I now live in Bloomington, Indiana. My brother-in-law, Gray Swoope, turned me on to follow your tweets. They make me smile or just laugh out loud.
I get Garrison Keillor’s “Writer’s Almanac” each day, and this was a poem in the March 21st email. I thought of your running early mornings. Hope you enjoy. Blessings, peggy
“Every Day” by Tom Clark, from Light and Shade Every Day
by Thomas A. Clark
Awake the mind’s hopeless so
At a quarter to six I rise
And run 2 or 3 miles in
The pristine air of a dark
And windy winter morning
With a light rain falling
And no sound but the pad
Of my sneakers on the asphalt
And the calls of the owls in
The cypress trees on Mesa Road
And when I get back you’re
Still asleep under the warm covers
Because love is here to stay
It’s another day and we’re both still alive

It’s the birthday of poet Nizar Qabbani (books by this author), born in Damascus, Syria (1923). His mother, who was illiterate, sold her jewelry to raise money to publish his first anthology, Childhood of a Bosom (1948), and he went on to become the most popular Arab poet and to publish more than 20 books of poetry. Much of his poetry was influenced by the tragic deaths of two women he loved. When he was 15, his older sister committed suicide rather than be forced into marriage with a man she did not love, and he turned his attention to the situation of Arab women. He wrote romantic, sensual poems and poetry demonstrating the need for sexual equality and women’s rights. Many years later, in 1981, his second wife, an Iraqi woman, died during the Lebanese Civil War when the Iraqi Embassy was bombed. Qabbani was grief-stricken and frustrated with the political and cultural climate of the Arab world, and he lived in Europe for the rest of his life.
I knew when I said
I love you
that I was inventing a new alphabet
for a city where no one could read
that I was saying my poems
in an empty theater
and pouring my wine
for those who could not
From 3-6 I miss listening to your show.
Our state ABC convention is July 11th-July 14th at the Sandestin Hilton in Destin, Fla. We would be honored if you would consent to be the featured guest speaker at our business man’s breakfast on Friday morning July 12th. You did this for us about three years ago and everyone loved it. We will provide room accomodations for you and family and any other requirements that you might have. We hope you will accept our invitation.
Hi Marshall — I’m writing a story for Prevention magazine on gratitude–particularly feeling thankful when things are going wrong–and came across your blog post on the very topic. Would you be willing to talk to me about your gratitude for the bad stuff for the piece?
Thanks! And I look forward to talking to you.
