Dispatch from Lesley Conner:
I love reading a book for the first time. Exploring new worlds. Falling in love with fantastic authors. Discovering new characters.
Do you know what’s even better, though? Reading a book and having someone else who’s reading it along with you to discuss it with.
My copy of Dark Faith: Invocations is in the mail. I can’t wait to dive into it. I’m planning on doing just that as soon as all the hectic running around of the holiday season has passed. I’ll be able sit back, put my feet up, and take the time to really enjoy the stories in the anthology.
Why don’t you read it with me?
I’m going to read one story from Dark Faith: Invocations every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting January 7th. The morning I’m reading the story, I’ll start a discussion thread on the Apex Publications Goodreads group, sharing my first impressions. (Here’s a handy link – http://bit.ly/Vbj1zw)
I want to hear from you. I want to dissect the language, gush about what I love, and debate what didn’t jive for me. It’ll be an open conversation where we can go beyond a simple “That was a good story”.
Grab a copy of Dark Faith: Invocations today and get ready to read along with me.
