Subject: Accessible World presents romance discussion group August 21, 2009
Have you ever sat in awe entranced by a book you have just read. Do you ever
yearn to share your feelings with the author of the beautiful book you've
just finished? If you have, you will have an opportunity to talk with
Barbara Bretton, author of Sentimental Journey, a book featured in our
romance discussion group several months ago in our next meeting on Friday,
August 21. .
What does Barbara think while writing a book? How are her choices made
about plot, setting,and characters? Does she ever wish she could go back
and change a part of the plot or eliminate a character? How does Bretton's
life experience and maturity affect her perception of past work? Is being
published all sweetness and light or is it filled with disillusionment,
disappointment, and pain? What is the honeymoon period after publication
and why must it end
Barbara Bretton is a fascinating writer and will honestly speak with us
about all of the above questions. She will share not only what publishing
means to her, but how it feels in a way you have never heard before.
A delightful lady, Barbara has been publishing books since 1982. When you
listen, you will look at writers and the world in which they work
differently. Your life will be truly enriched. In an hour with Barbara
Bretton, you will be captivated and eager to read more of her books. Don't
be surprised if you have fallen in love with the author herself when our
time together comes to an end.
In addition to discussion of Barbara's novel Sentimental Journey mentioned
above, we will touch on two of Barbara's other novels, A Soft Place To Fall
and Just like Heaven. The information about where and how they can be
obtained is below. Reading them is optional, but please download and read
them if you wish. If you love to read, put that book you are reading down
for just an hour and join us. You will have no regrets.
