Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments Hello All -I have just found Good Reads and am new here. Here's a little about me:

I am the author of Megan's Way, a work of literary fiction, and the Founder of The Women's Nest, a social and support site for women (sorry guys!). Along with our forums, blogs, and free medical and financial advice, we also host a book club w/author chats! I'd love to chat with other authors who are willing to chat on-line with book clubs.

Looking forward to getting to know you!
Melissa

Niki Welcome to the group, Melissa! What's your book about?


message 3: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments Thanks for asking, Holly the Great and Powerful Empress!! LOL!

Here's a brief synopsis (from my back cover):

What would you give up for the people you love?

When Megan Taylor, a single mother and artist, receives the shocking news that her cancer has returned, she'll be faced with the most difficult decision she's ever had to make. She'll endure an emotional journey, questioning her own moral and ethical values, and the decisions she'd made long ago. The love she has for her daughter, Olivia, and her closest friends, will be stretched and frayed.

Meanwhile, fourteen-year-old Olivia's world is falling apart right before her eyes, and there's nothing she can do about it. She finds herself acting in ways she cannot even begin to understand. When her internal struggles turn to dangerous behavior, her life will hang in the balance.

Megan's closest friends are caught in a tangled web of deceit. Each must figure out how, and if, they can expose their secrets, or forever be haunted by their pasts.

FYI - I'm doing a blog tour starting Sept. 4th, and a few of the hosts are giving away copies! Details on my website: Megan's Way

Niki Wow. That sounds really good! Do you think it'd be available at a library?


message 5: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments Not yet. I have sent a review copy for the association, and hope to hear back before too long. Although I have donated one to the library in Eastham, Mass :-)


message 6: by Niki (new)

Niki Oh well. The library doesn't like me much, anyway. I always *forget* to give them back their books. For some reason, they usually frown on that type of thing.


message 7: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments We are late retuners, too :-) I think those who love to read hate to return books in general :-)
Thank you for the kind welcome!


message 8: by Niki (new)

Niki Yay for late returners! And it's always great when the new members of the group actually participate!


message 9: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments Yeah, I run a board and I love newbees! LOL! It's fun to get involved and meet new people!


message 10: by Niki (new)

Niki Most definitely. Especially when those new people are published authors and can give you tips. *winks*


message 11: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments OMG - finally someone who "gets" it! There is so much to writing and getting to know your craft - I was thrilled when I found this board!


message 12: by Niki (new)

Niki Maybe you can help us get some of the threads back on topic. Haha.


message 13: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments I'm a gabber - I hope I don't cause more OT posts! LOL!


message 14: by Niki (new)

Niki OT posts are our thing. You'll fit right in!


message 15: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 21 comments I'm signing off soon b/c I'm whipped, but I will def be back tomorrow. I just posted in your We're Dying thread :-) and I'll say it again - it's terribly hard to keep forums alive and active - Thanks for all of your hard work and even if you have just a few regular posters, you're doing a great service!!
