We move around a lot. I told my husband I can be happy anywhere as long as I can find a good book club. Two of my very best book club friends ever have been doing some pretty amazing things.
First, my friend Alicia just started a new site: The Search for a Great Book Starts with Chapter One!
It is a great website where you can read the first chapter of a book for free, before you decide to buy the entire book.
Next my friend Stephanie actually wrote an entire book- A Flutter of Butterfly Wings.
Lorelei has the life every teenager dreams of: a kick butt attitude thanks to karate, an awesome boyfriend, Zane, and supportive, loving parents. And, well, what else is there?
Her life shifts when she tries on a pair of sunglasses at a vintage store and is transported back in time. There she witnesses a young mother and her child in grave danger. She recognizes the young mother as her own grandma and the child is her mom. The vision ends with a gun shot.
It’s not long until they discover that family secrets aren't meant to be kept. With help from Zane, they begin to piece together what happened in her grandma’s past, just as the present begins to unravel. They soon realize that history has a way of repeating itself.
Doesn't that sound like something you'd like to read?You can check out the first chapter HERE or read the entire book HERE.
UPDATE: I failed to mention that you must first log on to Swoon Reads to read her book. It's basically a site to help aspiring authors get their books published, but it is free to read any book on the site. If you are interested, you can read more about the site HERE.
