I invited a few friends to join me for a virtual book group today. These were people from various parts of my life- high school, college, grad school, my neighborhood- who came up with the idea that we should discuss the novel. I sent the invite.
We had a lovely time talking about the characters and how the story developed, who we liked and who we didn’t like, and how I came up with the story and the ending.
Launching a book in a pandemic is a lonely process, and this was a life-line to the public part of publishing a novel. I was so happy to see everyone and to introduce them to each other. Many thanks to my friends from close and far away!
