My former colleague, Dara, invited me to be the guest author at her book club. I met with the ladies last night, and I had such an amazing time. They were lovely women, and they all liked my book! The scariest part about putting your work out there is the fear that no one will like it, so it’s especially nice when you find out people do like and appreciate your work.
It’s also great to get their perspective on your story and know what they wanted to see more of and what questions were important for them to get answered. The meeting really inspired me to get busy and finish my second novel because I have people out there who are actually waiting to read it! That’s a pretty damn good feeling.
