Book Club Blog - Our First!


So happy you found your way here, where I hope to create a special place for book clubs and book club readers.

Over the last few years, I've spoken to more than 50 book clubs from all over the world. Some by phone, some by email. I've Skyped with book clubs and, if I've been close by, I've visited several as well. It's been gratifying for me, as a writer, to be able to connect so intimately with such invested readers. If you'd like to schedule a visit with me, fill out the form at the bottom of this page and tell me about your book club.

In this blog, we'll feature the book clubs I visit. If you send me a picture of your bookclub reading my books, I'll put that up here for the world to see! I'll post exclusive book-club content and hold occasional contests just for you. I'll answer your questions and maybe ask a few of my own.

Check back frequently and thanks for reading!
