Which do you prefer? Live, on the phone, or the on-line author chat?Why?

Live - personal; develop relationships; make friends

Phone - personal; develop relationships; make friends

Least appealing - On-line book clubs - hard to concentrate on each individual while typing. :)

Please describe a book club experience that really moved you,encouraged you. Why did it touch you?

Live book club experience. The women were readers and writers. We had great eye contact, which meant a lot to me in making new friends. Always making readers is important, but relationships are more important. I believe my writing is a ministry.

Hey Nora, Thanks for having me be part of your book clubs last month on the phone. It was great to laugh with your group. Hope to get to Atlanta some day and do your book clubs "live".

It was great to laugh with you too DiAnn. It was neat to hear the behind scenes of your book Breach Of Trust!! It was great to get to know you better. Thanks for sharing your heart and passion you have for the lost boys of Sudan. Blessings to you and your writing adventures.
