Yep, that’s about it. Much like high school, my Friday and Saturday nights are basically free.
Truthfully, there is no greater joy for a writer than hearing readers discuss the story you’ve written. How fun to have my characters -- these trespassers, who have rummaged through my brain for years – traipse through other people’s thoughts.
Last night at Book Club, my fourth since the book was published in February, I listened as these wonderful women discussed who had done what to whom. It fascinated me to hear what parts of the book surprised them and what parts satisfied them. (Page 204 was a big hit – FYI.)
A couple people have asked me how much it costs for me to come to a book club. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I don’t know if other writers charge, but I can’t imagine asking for money for this much enjoyment. It’s like someone saying,” tell me all about your kids,” then having them kick back and listen.
Thanks to Skype and Google Hangouts we don’t even need to be in the same city. And while we won’t get a great selfie like this one, we could always try Photoshop.
