TGIF, RG2E Peeps!
What a wonderful week of Ereading we’ve enjoyed together!!! I can’t wait to tally up all of your fabulous comments!
In the meantime, let’s give a warm welcome to RG2E Featured Author Christy Hayes.
Christy has a question for u…
Book Clubs…What’s Your Stance?
Take it away, Christy…
I belong to a book club, or, I used to. My book club fizzled out and I’m not really sure why. Our group was small, our reading tastes similar, and we all loved to read. I think we no longer meet because we couldn’t find a time when all our members could get together.
I miss being in a book club for many reasons. I loved reading books that I would never have picked up on my own. I read books about other cultures, I discovered unknown-to-me authors, and I marveled at the different things people walk away from a book appreciating.
Often, the members of my group were drawn to certain characters and plot points in the books we read. Listening to the members discuss the things they liked and didn’t like was fascinating. As an author, I miss having that research group at my fingertips.
Many authors will admit they read differently since they started writing. I find it much harder to enjoy a book and really lose myself in the story because I’m too busy dissecting the plot, looking for the hook, anticipating the climax, and thinking of ways I would have written the book differently. I know I’ve discovered a truly gifted author when I no longer look for these things and just get caught up in the story.
So what about you, RG2E? Are you in a book club? If so, what do you appreciate most about the experience?
I’ll be giving away my romantic women’s fiction title, Angle of Incidence, today at RG2E.
Here’s a short synopsis:
Gwen Perry has the picture perfect life. Her Washington D.C. based photography business is booming, her husband’s law career is lucrative, and after years of trying, they’re only months away from the birth of their first child.
While a nasty turn of fate leaves Gwen devastated, angry, and on the verge of depression, her husband Rob walks a dangerous tight rope. He’s hiding something from Gwen that could destroy their marriage. But even the deepest secrets won’t stay buried forever.
When Rob’s past is revealed, Gwen agrees to join her college friend at the artists’ retreat he’s leading in Colorado despite the consequences to her marriage. But Rob’s not the only one keeping secrets from the past and her trip down memory lane could burn the bridge leading her back home.
Christy Hayes writes romance and romantic women’s fiction. She’s a member of Romance Writers of America and Romance Writers of America Women’s Fiction chapter. She lives outside Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband, two children, and two dogs.
