A book club founded ten years ago in North Texas (and still going strong) invited me to their January meeting to discuss both of my novels. Many thanks to Elizabeth Tessler for selecting Johnnie Come Lately and The Final Salute for a two book discussion in the warm surroundings of La Madeleine in Arlington, TX. The group was genuinely interested in my writing process, and they seemed pleased that I’m working on a third novel. When I told them I have a tight deadline, they cheered me on with words of encouragement and asked lots of good questions that will help me as I complete Seven Wings to Glory.

Club member Shawna Ashlock gifted me with this beautiful bookmark at the end of the evening.

Our cashier’s face lit up when she discovered I’m an author. Turns out she’s an aspiring writer with dreams to publish one day. I gave her my card and invited her to contact me. We writers need all the encouragement we can get. Thanks again to “Book Club” for investing your time and emotion in my stories.

  1. I’m glad to see you stay very active in appearances of various types. We are hoping that Rochelle will get more opportunity this year. Keep on keeping on.

    1. Hello Jan,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a note. So kind of you. I’m rooting for Rochelle that she can find the right outlets and opportunities to help promote her work.

      Take care and thanks again for commenting,

      Kathleen
