Book Club Mom’s February 2021 Recap

Hi all! I hope you are doing well. Thanks to everyone who visited my blog this month. I very much appreciate your support! February was a pretty good month. We got a lot more snow, but now most of it has melted, except for a big pile the plows made on the island in our cul de sac.

Unrelated to books, this month I participated in the 24th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count. For four days, I counted the different types of birds I saw in our backyard. I downloaded and app called Merlin Bird ID on my phone and it helped me identify them. The data goes to researchers at the National Audubon Society, Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Birds Canada and helps them learn more about how birds are doing and how to protect them and the environment. I had a lot of fun doing it and the app was easy to use. This is a global event and anyone can participate. If you’re interested in doing it next year, you can learn more about it at birdcount.org.

I also got back in the reading and blogging swing this month. Here’s a rundown of what I read and other posts.

Reserved by Tracy Ewens Preview

Reserved
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’m looking forward to settling in with Reserved, a new romance by Tracy Ewens. Reserved is the fourth book in Tracy’s Love Story series. I’ve read the other three and have thoroughly enjoyed the author’s modern, sassy and a little bit steamy writing style.

Here’s a preview of Reserved, as it appears on Amazon:

Makenna Rye Conroy was living the dream—with an amazing husband and a beautiful new baby daughter—when one night changed everything.

Almost six years after Adam’s death, Makenna and her daughter Paige have built a solid, happy life together. Makenna manages her brother’s trendy restaurant, The Yard, and helps out at Ryeland Farms, the family business, all while navigating the world of private school parenting. Sure, being a single mom has its challenges, but she hardly has time to pack her daughter’s lunch in the morning, let alone think about dating.

Travis McNulty, the middle child and biggest disappointment of the McNulty clan, is a chef at his best friend’s new restaurant. He gave up apologizing for not being the football hero his family wanted a long time ago. In fact, Travis apologizes for very little these days. He loves creating great food—it’s more of a passion than a job—and he lives life on his own terms with few complications.

For the past couple years, Makenna and Travis have worked side by side at The Yard, bickering, teasing, and never taking each other very seriously. That is until Makenna has her usual reoccurring dream; but this time, instead of her late husband as the featured man, Travis stands in his place. Travis may be attracted to his best friend’s sister, but she’s a widow and a mother, which tops the charts for complicated in his book.

As the game changes, Makenna and Travis, with a little help from Paige, have to figure out what they are willing to risk to reserve a table for three.

Looking forward to reading Reserved soon!

Looking for Indie Authors for Who’s That Indie Author

whos-that-indie-author

Hey indie authors! Are you wondering how to get people to know about your books? If you have seen my Who’s That Indie Author profiles you will know that one of the greatest challenges independent authors have is promoting their books. Why not join the Who’s That Indie Author community?

Here’s the problem: Some writers are so busy writing their books or working at another job they have little time left for promotions. Others are overwhelmed by the opportunities social media offers. And some writers are just uncomfortable putting themselves out there.

Think about some of the great writers. Can you imagine J.D. Salinger tweeting about The Catcher in the Rye? Or Emily Dickinson posting a poem on Facebook? Cormac McCarthy has only granted one interview, ever and that was to Oprah Winfrey. (You can watch that interview here.) He says, “I don’t think it’s good for your head – if you spend a lot of time writing about a book, you probably shouldn’t be talking about it, you should be doing it.” But of course, he has other people promoting his books.

Whether you are uncomfortable with self-promotion or are too busy, Who’s That Indie Author is a great way to tell readers about your books.

If you would like Book Club Mom to post your profile, email me at bvitelli2009@gmail.com and I’ll send you the template to complete.
