Hello fans of romantic comedy fiction in the greater Richmond area! If you love to laugh and get together with girlfriends to talk about a great story this is the group for you.
I recently wrote my first novel, not surprisingly a romantic comedy, and in talking with my beta readers I have realized how much fun it is to socialize with a great group of savvy ladies and discuss the fantasy lives of women we can all identify with.
This group is NOT about reading my book or talking about my book or doing anything related to my book. Sure, I would love to gain exposure and share my work with others - what writer wouldn't? But I have noticed we have a hole in the Richmond book club meetup arena. I was looking to join a book club that focuses on the lighter side of women's fiction to see what hip chicks are reading these days and to expand my GNO invite list. And guess what? - there aren't any!
So let's band together and change that - book club meetups will have different themes each month. Wine and books, ethnic cuisine and books, cupcakes and books, happy hour and books, basically any venue where it is reasonably quiet (or they will let us have a private room) and we can take some time to sit and chat. I will certainly be open to member suggestions, but we will meet once a month and the venues will change.
When you join please suggest a book! I will put them in a hat (or maybe a basket - I don't wear hats) and pull out a few selections to vote on in the polling area. Future books will be picked by the members - with a different member choosing the possible selections each month, which will always be voted on. Let's just make sure we are staying in the genre and preserving our brand identity as the most exciting and trendy book club around. : )
Any woman is invited to join but the meetups will sometimes involve alcohol and the books may have bad language and/or graphic content. This is an adult group and we want to be able to stay on the cutting edge of romantic comedy, which sometimes pushes us OVER the edge of.... whatever we want. : )
I promise my group members that they will not receive any book promotion from me at meetup events, in their e-mail, etc. If you want to know about my book just ask or go to my website, ttp://carolmaloneyscott.com.
