Beyond FUN: Carleen Brice Book Club Visit

Denver novelist Carleen Brice, author of Orange Mint & Honey (and editor of Age Ain’t Nothin’ but a Number), visited with my neighborhood book club last night at a nifty restaurant in the south suburbs. The evening flew by thanks to the terrific company, service, food, and maybe one or two glasses of wine (woohoo!). The event was attended by ten of my book-lovin’ neighbors, two of their moms, my old buddy Donna, and Lisa of Eudamonia fame. Thanks to everyone who attended and thanks again to Carleen for making our special summer edition book club meeting so memorable!

Prior to dinner, Lisa, Carleen, and I celebrated the long-awaited release of Amy Mackinnon’s Tethered by posing for a photo at a new (I love those purple walls) Borders. Amy’s launch party was probably in full swing back in MA when we took this photo; from today’s report at The Writers’ Group blog, that event was a ton of fun, too. Congratulations, Amy!

I wish I lived close enough to join you, Karen. NE Ohio is too far a hike!

Perhaps Debra and I can come out together when Lisa's debut novel is launched/read/celebrated!

Sounds like a plan, Larramie and Debra! I'll be sure to let Lisa know. :)

I know what you mean, Tara! If only we didn't need to sleep, right?

Amy, you're very welcome. TETHERED is on my list of upcoming reads. Can't wait!

Hi Barrie! The evening was very cool, and very fun! Carleen is a gem. K.

You all look beautiful, and of course, so does Tethered. Makes me wish I lived in Denver.

Hearing from you just made my day, Patry. Hope you're enjoying a peaceful late summer there on the Cape. Denver's great, but I'm pretty sure you'd miss your walks on the beach. :) xo, K.
