Welcome, Jeanette.  Thanks for stopping by to talk about your writing and your new book. How did you get started writing for publication?
When my son was a baby, I wrote several poems for La Leche League, which they published in their international calendars.  I was thrilled to see my work in print, delighted that people all over the globe were reading it. LLL offered me a job editing the newsletter for our local region, but I turned them down, since I had two small children at the time, and wanted to devote all my time to them.

Big Birthday Celebration

TBCN’s Having a Huge Birthday Bash during August! They’re giving away ten books a day.

Hi Nora, welcome. We can’t wait to hear about TBCN. What inspired you to start TBCN?
The Book Club Network was born out of a desire to share Christian Fiction authors with other book clubs, share book club ideas with other leaders and to encourage the authors who are writing such amazing books.
