The Girlfriends Book Club began in 2003 as a virtual blog tour, one of the first of its kind. It was featured in the New York Times and the Village Voice. In recent years it was re-invented as a group blog for women’s fiction writers. As members of the GBC, we blog every weekday about our books and writing adventures.
We are a group of traditionally published, award-winning, and bestselling authors. In recent years, many of us have become the new hybrid author—indie publishing and, of course, still traditionally publishing. We invite you to read, comment, and spend some time hanging out with us. Our online blog can be found here: www.girlfriendsbookclub.org
Included in this book are 34 of our most popular blog posts on the subject of writing and the writing life, as well as 17 featured fiction excerpts from our published novels. We truly hope you will enjoy this unique collection!
