I plan to be there. :) Looking forward to it.

What's the best piece of advice you were given regarding writing?

How do you feel about giving away some of your secrets, or others, in your writing, and have you?

Really enjoyed reading your book.

Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

I would love to know what Delaune's writing space looks like and whether she has a set writing routine?


Shoot, I wanted to be there but won't be able to make it tonight now. I'll listen in later on. I have a couple of questions if you can fit them in.

One was that Fiona keeps secrets from her husband. Is it because she's always had to keep secrets, as an example from her mother so as not to get in trouble. Is keeping secrets her way of surviving?

Did you make Fiona an actress because she was always running from her past-in a sense acting through her own life?

Last, I would have liked to see the characters developed more as young girls-both Fiona and Patricia. I'm wondering why she chose to portray them more as adults.

You can just pick whichever of these you want depending on time. I really did enjoy the book. I'll be getting my review up tomorrow. Thanks Jennifer.

I'm hoping i can be here tonight to listen in but just in case i have a question.
I read in her bio about the outreach program, has any of the kids in the program gone on to be published writers?
also if she can tell a little about her up coming book?
I'm really enjoying The Safety of Secrets so far and hopfully i'll be able to be here at 7.00

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
