Our first virtual book club meeting last week was a success! First, I want to thank Allison Winn Scotch for stopping by the blog and answering all of our questions about her novel Time of My Life. Thank you to everyone who read the book and stopped by to leave a comment, too. It was fun to see what everyone else had to say and was especially great to read Allison’s responses. You can keep up with Allison at her blog Ask Allison.
For our next selection…drumroll please…The Bad Behavior of Belle Cantrell by Loraine Despres. I haven’t read the novel yet, but I fell in love with Loraine’s first novel, The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc. Learn more about the novel on Loraine’s Web site. I spoke with Loraine last week for an author Q&A that will appear on the blog on Monday and Tuesday. We talked so long it is going to take two posts to get everything in!
My virtual world and real life will collide in November as I am reading Belle for the online book club and hosting my local book club to discuss the book. I can’t wait! I am going to find some Southern recipes for my in-person meeting and will share the recipes online.
Loraine generously sent me autographed book plates that I am going to give away this week. Leave a comment on Monday and/or Tuesday for your chance to enter. You have until 5:00 Eastern Friday, Oct. 16 to enter. I will announce the winners on Monday, Oct. 19.
