This spring I joined a Facebook group called Fifty Shades of Geek, which is such an awesome collection of enthusiastic folks. We’re pretty much allowed to go nerdy on anything. It’s very inclusive.
One of the admins of the group, Robin Elizabeth, is an indie writer. I just finished Episode 1 and Episode 2 of her novellas, What Happens in Book Club… I affectionately nickname them the Australian Bridget Jones’s Dairies. They tell the story of Gwyn, a high school teacher who with her besties, Selena and Mac, belong to a monthly book club that takes place in a local pub. They’ve just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey and are trying to disinfect themselves with classics for the next year. Should be safe, right?
Except Gwyn’s finding her sex life is becoming a blur between fact and fiction, as she unwittingly chooses partners who mirror characters in the books her club’s reading.
The language is raw, the dialogue honest, and I find the women so charming. They are the saucy types I would have hung out with in my 20s. Or maybe even now.
I’m totally thinking of joining a book club now. 😉
Cait Gordon is the author of Life in the ‘Cosm, which will be out in the fall of 2016. She’s also accidentally writing the second book in this series. She didn’t know there would be a series. Huh.
