Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) I am so excited to let all of you know that author Katherine Howe has graciously offered to answer questions for us on September 1st!

Monica and I have worked out the details and what we will all do is post our questions prior to 9/1 (in a thread I'll create for them) and depending on her availability, Katherine will either answer them directly on here or I will email her all the questions and then post her reply to my email in the thread.

There's also a surprise for discussion participants (hoping to include all but we'll have to see how many total we have), but you'll have to wait a little longer before I reveal what it is!


message 2: by Holli (new)

Holli Very cool Jo, thanks so much for arranging that! I need to get this book and get it read... don't think I'll make it for the discussion but I will enjoy from the sidelines!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) She & I were Tweeting on Twitter about the book, the discussion, etc. and we finally hooked up via email last week or so. She's so nice!

Lol Brenda! I agree great minds think alike!

I'm glad it's worked out Holli! I can't wait for you to read this novel! Like me, you like things with a touch of the paranormal - this novel does it brilliantly, not too much to make it unbelievable yet enough to make it so realistic! And I will say, there are a couple of things which the main character experiences that I have experienced myself! (I won't tell you what until you've read it).


message 4: by Monica (new)

Monica (imelda85) Thanks for getting all of this together, Jo!! What an awesome oppertunity!!

I'm anxious to hear about some of your experiences as well!!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) You're welcome Monica!

I'll share them in the other threads! ;-)

I'm glad you're starting the book Vikki! It will be fun to chat with you about it!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Can't wait to talk it up with you Vicki! Don't feel you have to rush, you can visit the discussion any time and no matter when you finish!


message 9: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cyndil62) | 1774 comments How exciting! I am still on hold for this book at the library.


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) I can't wait for you to read it Cindy and I hope you like it!


message 11: by Valerie (new)

Valerie That is so cool- thanks for setting this up, Jo! This book just came in for me at the library and I am so excited to start it!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) :-)

Hope you enjoy it Valerie!

Cindy (cyndil62) | 1774 comments I can't wait to read it either! I had it in my hands at the bookstore but it's like 24.99 so I just couldn't spend that much on one book (but may have to break down and buy it!)

I know what you mean, Cindy! I usually prefer paperbacks because they are cheaper brand new, but every now and then I see a particular book that really grabs my attention and I have to pre-roder it! That's what I did for Deliverance Dane! With my Barnes and Noble membership, I pre-ordered it for just under $16.00. It was a bit of a splurge, but I couldn't resist!

Usako (bbmeltdown) | 654 comments Jo, that's fantastic of you to arrange!!

You could go online to B&N.com - it's $16.89 for non B&N Members and $15.20 for Members! I've never paid more than $2.99 for shipping (and usually if you spend over $25, you get free shipping!). OR they have the e-book for $9.99!!! I paid $15.59 before tax in store.

Thank you for arranging such a nice surprise. I use a Sony ereader, so feel free to pass my sticker along to someone who joins the discussion late.

True but if you really wanted one, you could find some place else for it, lol! No worries - not trying to force ya!

Usako (bbmeltdown) | 654 comments I'll put the autograph book plate on the INSIDE of my Kindle's cover. Boo-yeah! A lil treasure trove. Thanks Jo! PMing ya now!

It is the ebook from Amazon, so I don't have a book to put the sticker on.
Maybe the authors should start this trend, and then we can have our Kindles covered with all the stickers :)


message 32: by Monica (new)

Monica (imelda85) Oh, wow!!!!! That is so awesome, Jo! Thank you so very much!!! What a wonderful surprise! Tell Katherine thank you! I can't wait to get it, what a special edition to our books!!!! :)


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) LOL Tanja!

I'll definitely pass along your thanks Monica!

I'll get these out during the week.


message 34: by Monica (new)

Monica (imelda85) Jo! I just sent you a message, I'm laughing because I totally didn't get your message until just now about the signed inserts! LOL! I'm so sorry I missed it!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) No Worries Monica! ;)

Thanks for the offer but I'm a library girl too I don't actually own the book. Very cool of her to do though. I really appreciate the generosity of authors.

The Kindle Edition of a book is the Electronic version. It is an E-Book Reader that allows you to hold thousands of books on a 10 oz device. You can check it on Amazon. I have had one for over a year and I am completely satisfied.


message 38: by Laura (new)

Laura (gutenberggirl) | 15 comments I'm just getting to this exciting thread and would LOVE to have a signed book plate. Please include me and THANK YOU JO!!

I read SO MUCH more now since I got my Kindle in December. Books are cheaper and you don't have to carry a big book or books around. Plus, I HATE holding pages open, especially if I am reading in bed.




Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Sure Laura & Brenda! Just message me your name & address!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Thanks for letting me know Tera!

I just had an idea: I'm going to get a really nice thank you card and send it to Katherine once we've finished up, sign it from Chicks on Lit & list all of our names!

".... I can't wait for you to read this novel! Like me, you like things with a touch of the paranormal - this novel does it brilliantly, not too much to make it unbelievable yet enough to make it so realistic! ..."

Jo: I have thought a few times that you may like "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon.




Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) I've heard a lot about the Outlander series on GR but never looked at any of them - thanks for the reccomend Aylin!

I'll update the ist above tomorrow or Tues and start getting these book plates out this week. (Cant edit posts from my cell and I don't bring my laptop up to our weekend/vacation place on purpose - my cell service is shotty up here too & I don't mind!!! Keeps me reading, writing & relaxing!)


message 46: by Valerie (new)

Valerie How cool! Thanks, Jo!

PS- I also loved the Outlander series. So good. :)


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) List above has been updated! If you haven't let me know one way or another, please do so asap, thanks!
