Book Clubs & BookFest

By Steph's Scribe @stephverni

BooksigningLast night I spent a delightful evening with a group of women in Clarksville who’d read “Beneath the Mimosa Tree” as its book club choice.

They couldn’t have been more lovely, supportive, and inviting.

We talked a little about the plot, but mostly about what it takes to be a self-published, independent author. I told them the truth: It’s much easier to write it than it is to market it.

I enjoy spending time meeting women around the area at book club talks. It’s such a great way to share a common thread: that we like stories and we like to read.

Thanks for having me, ladies.

Tomorrow, Saturday, December 1, Greetings and Readings in Hunt Valley, MD, will host BookFest 2012. Along with 19 other authors, I’ll be saying hi and signing books for people. It’s a great chance to do some holiday shopping and get in the holiday spirit.

As for “Beneath the Mimosa Tree” as a gift—it’s actually the perfect stocking stuffer or gift because much of the story takes place between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve.

Have a great weekend, everyone. Hope to see you!
