BookBub has a FREE suggestion for us this morning. I’m excited because Robin Lee Hatcher is one of my longtime favorite authors and she’s become like a friend. I find it’s impossible to experience multiple exposures to the creator of enjoyable stories without developing an emotional attachment. The essence of the person behind the words leaks through and the reader is drawn to a new friend. The attachment is rarely reciprocal as for that to happen the participants would have to meet somehow. Reading and writing are not shared occupations, no crossing of paths involved. Still, the reader’s life is richer for the experience.
Things are changing in the communication department though. More and more, authors are looking for ways to connect with their readers. Modern technology and social media provide options that make it easy. Interaction is a very good thing for the world of books and reading. My own list of followed and enjoyed authors is constantly growing.
I’ve never met Robin in person but she is one of my many favorite book friends and I can see already that this new read will be another good experience.
Firstborn: A Novel
Erika Welby had a secret she thought no one would ever discover. But someone knew ...
“Dear Mrs. Welby, I know you were only seventeen when I was born. I’ve got many questions. I wonder if you have questions to ask me, too.”
Erika’s worst fear is realized when her well-kept secret shows up on her doorstep. As she reaches out to the daughter she gave up for adoption 21 years ago, her husband pulls away, leaving Erika with an impossible choice.
I’m currently reading one of my new favorite authors. As always her story is drawing me in and it’s not easy put down. Newly released on September 1st, it’s still a bargain if you’d like to give it a try. When I stop to think about it, I think the message of this positive story can be a life changer. Spread the love around.
