Book Clubs and Making Connections

I couldn't have imagined a more stellar group of readers. And, thanks to Regy, for setting up this timed photograph--something totally beyond my abilities. (And note how we match!) This was a great way to spend a Sunday.

From left to right: Julie, Lisa, Nicole, Heidi, Michele (me), Holly, Jessica and Samantha.

Today was a feast and delight. It meant so much to me to be with past writer friends, Lisa and Nicole, and the other beautiful ladies were funny, smart and insightful. I look forward to spending more time with all of these gals. I felt embraced and at home.

Thank you! And thanks to the folks at Borders, where I signed books yesterday. I met some wonderful people like Robbie (the third-grade writer), April, mother of two, Wendy, who's in the Richmond Book Club I'm meeting with June 15th, and Deborah, who really needed my book. I felt an immediate connection with Deborah. Since publishing The Handbook, I am meeting so many wonderful people, all of whom reaffirm the messages and themes present in my novel. THANK YOU!
