Book club love

Is your book club reading one of my books? You can get signed and personalized copies if you order directly from my neighborhood independent bookstore, Anderson's. Click here and place your order. They'll call me and I'll hustle down, personalize your books and they'll ship to you. OR if you don't live near a city where I am reading, send me a note and I will sign bookplates for your club and mail them to you. Right now, we have three different plates, depending on what you're reading.

Once More, With Feeling

And so it begins. Again. The roller-coaster car is clicking back up the incline and the next run is about to start. The first boxes of Queen of America have arrived from New York. It's hard to believe we have come this far, Teresita and I.

The book is so pretty. Little Brown truly outdid themselves this time. And I like to think that I did, too!

Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat:  If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.

Tell us all about your book club!
