Book clubs...

Last night I had the pleasure of visiting the Townsville Businesswomen's book club. These lovely ladies had read one of my books (Claiming His Family) and what a lovely night we had. It was very gratifying to find readers who don't normally read M&B, who graciously said how much they'd enjoyed the story.
There was lots of chatter about divorce (an important element in the book's storyline) and children's attitudes to this, and about adoption... and all kinds of issues of supreme interest to women. I should have been taking notes. Such nights are pure gold for authors.
This book club is one that uses books from our local library. The library buys in sets of books specifically for book clubs. Isn't that a great idea?

How nice that the Library chose your book for their group. They must have been so excited to have the author along!!
