Talking to book clubs and libraries over the phone is a terrific way to connect with readers who can’t make it to a book signing.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 06, 2013
Book clubs today are looking for a more personal way to connect with the author who wrote their latest book club selection. New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susan Mallery has invited book clubs to arrange a personal phone call from her to discuss her latest women’s fiction novel, Three Sisters. The call is free of charge. Details of how to arrange the call can be found on the Book Club page at http://www.blackberryisland.com, a website devoted to Mallery’s Blackberry Island trilogy.
“I’m always looking for opportunities to connect with my readers,” says Mallery, who is known for her open relationship with her fans, particularly on her popular Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/susanmallery. “Talking to book clubs and libraries over the phone is a terrific way to connect with readers who can’t make it to a book signing. I love hearing about their take-aways from my books. How did they relate to the characters? Did they feel the same themes while reading as I felt while writing? Which characters resonated most deeply with them? What surprised them about the book? It’s fascinating and fun and always something new.”
The readers’ discussion guide at the end of Three Sisters has helped make the book a popular selection for book clubs. Three Sisters is about the transformative power of female friendship. In intertwining storylines, Andi, Deanna, and Boston fall in love, overcome grief, and resurrect a failing marriage with the support of their new friends. Brought together as neighbors on quaint Blackberry Island, off the coast of Seattle, the women discover in each other kindred spirits, and their friendship gives each the strength to change her life. The discussion questions guide readers to explore personal connections with the book, such as asking when they have experienced similar events in their own lives, or how they would have behaved differently than the characters.
Three Sisters has spent five weeks on the bestsellers list so far and is currently on the New York Times bestsellers list for ebook fiction at #7, for trade paperback fiction at #30, and for combined print and ebook fiction at #11. Three Sisters is also on the USA Today bestsellers list for the fifth consecutive week, currently at #15. Three Sisters is available in print, ebook, and audio wherever books are sold.
