I met with my first book club this summer. It was an exhilarating experience. I loved sharing my novel, Free of Malice with a dynamic group of women who had read the book and wanted to discuss the characters, plot-line and dive into their moments — and details.
Attention book clubs: I’m available for in-person or Skype book club discussions. During the balance of 2015 I’m looking for book clubs to be advance readers of Free of Malice. In addition to discussing the book and answering your questions, I’ll ask for your input or suggestions. You still have time to influence details in the book!
Input from the first club discussion created several adjustments to the book:
Wardrobe. I had the lead female character, Laura Holland, wearing a “little black dress” to Eddie’s Attic, a music listening room in Decatur, Georgia. The book club suggested that Eddie’s is more informal so we switched her to jeans. Great call.
Uber. At one point in the story, I had a character “calling” an Uber vs. “commanding” an Uber for a ride. What terminology do you use to describe getting a ride via Uber?
Two terrific tips. I’m looking forward to talking with your book club. Let’s dive into the plot line together.
