I heart Book Clubs!

Muchas smooches to all the book clubs who are reading Orange Mint and Honey!!! Seriously, authors owe as much to book clubs as we do to booksellers, so you have my deepest gratitude! If you're in Colorado, I can meet with you in person. If you're out of state, email me and I will do a phone in to answer your group's questions.

Send me a jpeg of your group reading my book and I'll send everybody a little orange mint somethin somethin (bathsalts or candies, anyone?).

In the back of the book there are recipes for orange mint tea and cookies. But I also have other recipes good for a book club meeting. For example, orange mint mojitos! Get the recipe over at Tayari Jone's place. As part of a weekly feature for spring called Cocktails with Writers she's posting recipes. Poet Honoree Jeffers' Almond Joy Cocktail sounds delish!!

I'll post other recipes here soon.

I recommended your book to my former book discussion group in New Orleans.

Thanks Shauna! Hey, since I will be at BEA, we can plan on meeting for a coffee or something.

Great! I'll let you know when I find out which day I'll be there. (Or, if you're only going to be there one day, please let me know which one and I'll try to arrange my meeting with my agent for the same day.)

I bet my wife would really like those orange mint mojitos.

I'm so irritated! Neither Target nor WalMart (in my area) has your book. I'll end up ordering from Amazon but dayum! Why aren't my local stores carrying the book -- and YES -- I AM complaining to them! Doesn't seem to do any good!

I just finished reading Age Ain't Nothing but a Number. Loved it!

My better half just received her RH book club mailing yesterday––and there you were!

When she registered online she had to pick a name for her group. Now we get mail for "Leesha's Hotties."

I love it.
