Book Club selection

The thrill of the work, the writing, planning, drafting, revision … is in a reader’s reaction to the story. When my publisher releases it to the public I anxiously await feedback and reviews. Did the story move my readers; give them something to ponder, or wonder about; provide some new little piece of information my research enabled me to share?

Today I received affirmation of my work in the happy faces of a book club in Warrenton, North Carolina. To see their joy sharing the stories read over the course of a year moves me. This pic encourages me to wrestle through more plots and move forward with whatever work in progress piece I’m working on. It’s like a beautiful present that I can share with readers! And I’m so grateful! Ahhhh, the writing life.

  1. I have only visited a couple of book clubs but I wholeheartedly agree: the boost from connecting with readers in this way is incredible. I’m glad you enjoyed such a wonderful interaction with this group.

  2. They are a happy group! I also like to prepare book discussion questions that are available for actual use while readers share their experience of the title. I think that highlights the different layers of story and theme. Thanks for stopping by!
