I checked out your blogspot and was extremely impressed by the quality of your group. You seem to be very honest in your evaluations and diverse in your opinions. Since books are an art form, your group seems to have a broad and intelligent perspective of this difficult medium. I am an author who just recently moved to the Maryland area. My first novel, Unholy Grail by Berkley, is a suspense/thriller based upon some highly researched religious myths, conspiracy theories, and doctrines. My publisher promotes it as fiction with content. I am finishing my second novel, which is a bio-terrorism thriller and would be very interested in the opinions of your group regarding Unholy Grail as a means of improving my writing skills. I find it important to receive a broad spectrum of comments.If your group would be interested, I would gladly provide free copies of Unholy Grail and be willing to participate in your discussion by providing insight into the process and extensive research I used to create the novel, which is being translated into German, Russian, Norwegian, Bulgarian, and Romanian. You can get some perspective of my novel from my Web site at: www.dlwilsonbooks.com.Please let me know if you would be interested.Sincerely,David (D.L.) Wilson
Even cooler than the signed books is the fact that Mr. Wilson is attending our book club meeting in July when we discuss his book. He's agreed to talk about his research methods and answer any questions we have about his book. My girls are pretty excited about this, needless to say.
I probably won't start reading this until July so it's fresh in my mind for the meeting but I'll get a review up as soon as I've finished it. Until then, if you've read this book please let me know what you thought of it. And if you have any questions for the author I'd be glad to ask them at our July meeting!
Note for book clubs: In case you are wondering WHY out club was chosen by Mr. Wilson to read/discuss his book, here are his reasons. First, we read books from all different genres. Second, we don't always agree about the books. He explained that he wants to hear from diverse readers who know how to verbalize their thoughts - good or bad - on a book.
