Speaking to Book Clubs (Anywhere!)

Do you know that I speak to bookclubs via speakerphone? There have been some weeks when I make a call every single night. I always promise 20 minutes, but I have so much fun talking that I may ramble on for 30. The time just flies by. This week I spoke with a book club in West Chester, Ohio in the middle of the afternoon. That was a first. The name of their club is Lettuce Read! They’d read Before the Storm, and after our call, they sent me this picture. I love it!

If you’d like me to chat with your bookclub when you’re discussing one of my books, just fill out the form on my website. I have to warn you that I’ve had to turn down some requests lately because of my crazy travel schedule as I promote Secrets She Left Behind, but I will do my best to accomodate you.

    What an adorable book club and name!
    I think it’s so cool that you do this, Diane! I bet the clubs really love talking with you.

    Good grief. Do you sleep?

    Do I sleep, Brenda asks? Not nearly enough! In the early years of having rheumatoid arthritis, I had to sleep so much. Fatigue is a big part of the disease. I’d get at least ten hours, usually about 8 at night and another 2 in the afternoon. In recent years with better treatment, I rarely feel tired. I aim for 8 hours, but I usually get 6 or 7. I am so happy not to feel tired all the time that I hate to waste a moment!
