Reading All Over The Place for Your Book Club? Invite Me.

I need to tell you about one of the cooler things that ever happened to me.

And I know some of you are like, “Ugh, no, Geraldine this whole neurotic, insufferable girl with the awesome life thing is wearing thin” and I KNOW IT IS, PEOPLE. It is not my fault, okay? I do everything wrong and I fight with the President on Twitter and I’m just generally terrible and I say things like this.

 

I AM HORRIBLE.

But cool things just keep happening and I’m going to chalk it up to life being unfair. I mean, how many great people do you know who have awful things happen to them? Tons, right? So shouldn’t a terrible person have great things happen to her?

Hmm. Perhaps not.

Anywho, I give you the latest installment in Geraldine Does Not Deserve Her Life.

Yesterday my friend Deanna met with her book club. This month’s selection? All Over the Place. My book was their book club selection.

MY BOOK WAS THEIR BOOK CLUB SELECTION.

 

This means that people got together and voluntarily read my book. THAT HAPPENED. Naturally, I freaked out when I heard the news. I also asked Deanna if I could call in and maybe answer some questions. And we did. Deanna actually prepared some questions that were brilliant and insightful and I rambled on about Jane the Virgin.

For real.

But it was also super fun. And I think that maybe Deanna and her awesome group didn’t mind that I make no sense? And that maybe I screamed a couple times during the call because I was in the car while Rand drove through crazy traffic?

It also made me think that this is something I would love to do again, if people were interested. So here’s the deal: if your book club reads All Over the Place, and you’d like me to call in to your meeting via Skype or phone, let me know. I probably won’t do video chat because I don’t like to wear pants or a bra when I’m home.

Reminder: a book club cannot consist of you and three of your cats.

It has to be a minimum of four cats. And they’d better each have their own copy.

(Just kidding, it can be you and three of your cats. I’m a first-time author. Seriously, that whole four-cat-stuff is reserved for the Elizabeth Gilberts of the world).

Anywhoodle, if you’re interested, email me at deenie -at- gmail and we’ll set up a time for me to ramble. I’d love to meet all you weirdos and talk about this strange little book of mine.

  • 11 years. You have made my life what it is, Rand.
  • When you find out that @britneymuller has surreptitiously been taking photos of your butt on her phone.
Me: Why.
Her: Because it's perfect.
*swoon*
❤️❤️❤️
  • Hair toss, check my nails. Baby how you feeling? Thirty-nine as hell.
  • Me: You cannot go to sleep at 10pm EST.
Him: Watch me.
  • I didn't do nearly all that I set out to do today. But I had a lovely dinner thanks to this man and some excellent out of town guests. So perhaps the measure of a day isn't always about that damn checklist. (Maybe. Ask me again tomorrow when all the stress hits me. 🤔😅)
  • You can't expect things to look *exactly* like the picture in the cookbook. But sometimes they do anyway. #alisonroman #diningincookbook #diningin #cocoabananabread #instadesserts #baking
  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴

All Over The Place

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
