1. Everyone in the group is an avid reader or writer of YA fiction. We are all about YA and nothing but. Which equals to utopia in my world. I could sit and talk YA with them for DAYS, I tell you.
2. I am one of the only non-agented and un-published members (um, five of them have books coming out in the next year), so I should feel intimidated. And, I kind of do. But we start talking, and I hear about their struggles along the way, and I somehow feel better about my journey.
3. All of the group members are smart as a whip, and they have great advice and recommendations. What's that saying? Something like--surround yourself with people smarter than you...
The only way it could be more win-win for me is if the group moved to a restaurant, and I could discuss YA with a glass of wine in my hand. *smiles sheepishly* Any takers?
Our next book club is August 15th and the book is DECEPTION.
