Dear Book Clubbers,
For years I was an editor at Cosmopolitan magazine. There were so many unique and hilarious things about working at the largest women’s magazine in the world, but one event the staff looked forward to every fall was our 50 Bachelors from 50 States initiative. Each November, a bunch of those 50 very good-looking single guys would descend upon our Manhattan office, leading to pure chaos and even the occasional one-night stand with a staff member.
What does any of this have to do with reading and book clubs and Help for the Haunted? Well, when I was thinking of the upcoming paperback release and of all the great book clubs across the country that I’ve been Skyping/Facetiming/calling into and even visiting in person on occasion, something made me think of that Cosmo initiative. That's when those two separate ideas fused in my mind and the idea of 50 BOOK CLUBS IN 50 STATES was born.
Beginning today and going all the way through next July 2015, I will Skype/Facetime/call and even visit in person when possible one book club in every state across the country to discuss Help for the Haunted. If I am able to talk with one book club from each state by July 31, 2015, the first book club I met with in each state will be sent a complete library of my novels as well as a swag-bag filled with my favorite book club books published by William Morrow! And finally, one book club will even win a date with a good-looking single guy...okay, just kidding about that last part. But the rest is true!
Sound fun? Well, be the first to sign up your state and your book club right now! All you need to know is listed below. Look forward to seeing you and your club soon!
