ON-SITE BOOK CLUBS ARE MAKING A COMEBACK!

How many of you are a part of a book club? One where you actually leave the house and interact with other people? Just curious since I'm doing some traveling this summer and it would be nice to visit a couple!

It is so much easier to commune with readers online for so many different reasons, but I’ll tell you, since I’ve been a published author, I haven’t had an opportunity to be a part of many on-site book clubs! The laughter, the discussion, the WINE! Lordt…I miss sharing two of my favorite past-times with my friends - drinking wine and discussing books we enjoyed (or didn’t enjoy)! Apparently, on-site book clubs are making a comeback. I know I for one can’t wait to hit the road this summer to visit a few!!

I saw this list in another blog - Read It Forward and thought I’d share the 13 Reasons Why Book Clubs are Changing the World. Check it out!

1. Book clubs bring people of all backgrounds together to talk about great propellants of change: books.

2. They provide people with a sense of community and remind them that they are not alone.

3. Book clubs champion diverse thought and points of view. From the members in the club to the authors of the books, voices that are not always heard finally have a chance. Empathy is built and strengthened, which is no small feat.

4. Lifelong friendships are formed through bonding over the same book.

5. Wine and cheese platters are everything. Seriously.

6. When everything else seems unstable, you can rely on your regularly scheduled meetings to put your mind at ease.

7. They create a chance for conversation, which seems simple but really helps those who might not have an outlet for such things.

8. Reading and finishing a book that you picked with a special group feels intimate and even more rewarding.

9. You will learn things about each story from your book club that you may have not noticed on your own.

10. They provide an escape from reality.

11. You will read books that you may have not picked for yourself.

12. Regular reading becomes a must because you don’t want to miss a meeting or discussion.

13. Book clubs are uniting and not dividing, which is a huge deal today.

Are you a member of a book club? Let me know and maybe I’ll see YOU this summer!

Love to read? √

Enjoy reading with friends? √

Need a little extra cash? √

THEN LV's BOOK CLUB IS JUST FOR YOU!  
 
HOST AN LV BOOK CLUB PARTY AND EARN COOL GIFTS AND PRIZES

HOW DOES IT WORK:  It's a tiered incentivized gift and prizes system. Host a book club party where readers purchase autographed print books of mine from you (you purchase them from the LV SHOP) and for every book sold...there is an incentive for you. The more you sell the bigger the incentive.

Readers do not have to be physically present for the book club but there must be at least 5 books sold in order to earn a prize.
Those prizes range from VISA gift cards to hard cold cash AND
possibly a visit from ME!
 
Marrying your love of reading with making a little extra income is the best of both worlds right?

This time of the year can get so busy that every now and again, you want to sit back, relax, and curl up with a good book (Fragments of us is available now- shameless plug) or movie.   If you're like me...

LV's 2017 GOALS!

LV's 2017 GOALS!

Happy New Year!

 

I’ve been looking forward to ushering in 2017 since June of 2016 – LOL!  The year in review was full of many surprises - some had me crying tears of joy and others just had me crying.  Still…

I want to say THANK YOU for such a successful 2016!  From The Right Side of My Pillow, The One That Slipped Away, the launch of my Londyn Vasser pen name with two releases under my belt – The Rules According to Gina & My Dangerous Reflection, and finally the release of FEVERISH Unbroken which is currently available at most e-book retailers - you, the readers have had my back, showed up and showed out!  THANK YOU just doesn’t seem like it’s enough to show my gratitude.

 
 

Now that we’re here . . . in 2017 . . . I’m EXCITED about all the things I’m cooking up for the year.  Some of the goals I’ve set are probably similar to yours -

1.    Lose weight.

2.    Stop drinking soda and drink more water.

3.    Read more books.

4.    Get more sleep.

5.    Get more exercise.

6.    Travel more.

I’ll keep you posted to my progress on the personal front. 

As far as the LaShawn Vasser Brand is concerned, I have goals and then I have GOALS!  I can share one of them but the others are still a work progress.

My brand is EXPANDING!  Not only can you find my books at iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Nook, Kobo, BookShout, as well as my own personal website, you can now walk into any Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million (BAM) store and order FEVERISH Unbroken!  Soon, they’ll be on bookshelves too.  Working on making my more popular titles available soon.

I will be busier than usual this year and I’ll reveal more and more information regarding my upcoming releases and more as the information becomes available!  In the meantime…

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!
