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.
