I've been so thrilled to do events at bookstores and libraries and fundraisers. The whole experience of publishing my first novel has been a dream come true in so many ways. One of the things I never expected, but have been so thrilled and gratified to do, is book clubs.
I've done them in person and on the phone, in people's homes and in restaurants. They are always a blast. The other night, I had another great time with a book club in Westerly, Rhode Island. This group of readers was smart, thoughtful, and insightful. The conversation could have gone on for hours. There is no greater satisfaction for a writer than to hear from readers who get into the world that the writer creates. Our conversation really reflected that. Thank you so much, Westerly/Stonington!
