Ransom book talk goes well

This is a picture of me with the ladies of the Ransom Book Club, which is called "Between the Lines." I held a book talk with the ladies March 11 after they had all read my book.

Today I was lucky enough to be invited to the Ransom Book Club’s meeting. It was held at 2 p.m. in the Grisell Memorial Hospital‘s conference room in Ransom.

I was there to talk about my book: “Murder at St. Alfanus.”

This was my first book talk, and I was nervous because I didn’t know what I was supposed to do.

I didn’t need to worry. The ladies of the club, which is called “Between the Lines,” were full of questions. I was anxious to hear what they all thought, and I was rewarded with a lot of good feedback. Everyone said they enjoyed it, though a few said they could have done without some of the foul language.

All of the ladies were a lot of fun to talk with. They really made me feel at home, and I think I was named an honorary member of the club. So now I know what my free time will be filled with — reading books for the book club talks.

Oh, and they served delicious tea and scones with home-made jellies and jams. Wow! Great snacks!

I feel so blessed to have so many people supporting my first novel, and I hope everyone continues to enjoy it and tell their friends about it. Every time someone buys my book, they are helping me achieve a dream I’ve had since I was in the fourth grade, for which I am eternally grateful.
