Energetic, Inquisitive Book Group in Charlotte

Betty is one of my oldest friends – so old in fact, that we can’t remember when we met – it was that long ago.  Betty’s bookclub read Scent of the Wild and invited me to come chat with them about the story.  And chat we did!  One reader asked if the story is literal or if it is an existential reach – wow, I guess I hadn’t thought of that.  Another said how much she liked Reggie and suggested that the next novel should be about him and how his life progresses.

I made lots of notes as I keep a file on comments I’ve received via mail, email and conversations, notes which may at some point turn into Novel #2.  There was no way to write down all the wonderful comments and suggestions I received from Betty’s group.  And  no way to express adequately how wonderful it was to be back in beautiful Charlotte with the dogwood and azaleas just bursting into bloom.

I doubt there could be a more perfect trip.  Thanks, Betty, and all who turned out for bookclub.  You made it fun and truly memorable for me.

Great lively conversations with these well-read women in Charlotte!

Another Andi Pearson? Oh, no!

Friends, if you are ordering Scent of the Wild on Amazon, be aware that there is another Andi Pearson.  I was alerted to this by a reader who ordered the wrong book!  I use my full name Andi Gregory Pearson so check that and just double check that you’ve ordered Scent of the Wild either on ebooks (for your Kindle or other electronic reader) or in hard copy.

If you read the work by the other Andi Pearson (a Brit, I understand), let me know what you think.

And remember, if you want to order a hard copy of this paperback novel, send a check for $16.95 (+$2.50 shipping if needed) to me

Book Group Boost to My Ego!

Thank you to Lisa R.

Book group fun!

and her delightful witty book group.  The discussion today of Scent of the Wild was interesting and many of your comments added dimension to the story.  I love that Jill thought Ken was “peaceful” by the end of the story and that Barbara felt the description of nature and the small town enhanced the fabric of the story.

If your book group is interested in reading Scent of the Wild, I’d be delighted to chat with you as you discuss the book.  You can contact me at agpwrites@gmail.com

And you can order your copy – I’ll sign it if you like – by sending a check for $16.95 (plus $2.50 shipping if it needs to be sent to you) to 1337 North Ford Street  Golden  CO 80403.

Unsolicited Review of Scent of the Wild

Recently, Rick, an RN in Denver, ordered Scent of the Wild from Amazon.  After reading the story, he wrote:

You’ve successfully pulled at several frayed strings from my life.  I’ve chosen partners in my life poorly.  I’ve known Edie and Noreen.  How can one know in the beginning of a relationship what it’s future will hold?  Then, hanging in there and “doing the right thing” counts for so little later on, and accounts for so many lost years.  What buried emotional baggage causes us to continue seeking acceptance where none will ever be found?

For a work of fiction, your story reveals realities experienced across a lifetime.  Very well done!

2017 – Debut Year

Yes, 2017 had its rocky bits but in late October, Scent of the Wild, my first novel, made its debut.  For good reading in 2018, you can get a copy by sending me a check for $16.95 + $2.50 shipping.  My address is  1337 N Ford St    Golden CO 80403

Recently, Ruth from NC said, “I usually skip long descriptive passages but I found the descriptions of Colorado’s rugged natural beauty to be enriching to the story.”

Happy New Year.

Ordering Scent of the Wild

I am just thrilled beyond words that so many of you have asked about ordering a copy of my novel, Scent of the Wild.  You cannot imagine how shored-up I feel knowing you want to read the story.  It’s always scary when one puts one’s creativity out there to be acknowledged and judged but many of you, from as far back as my junior high school days, are encouraging me through these purchases.

Keep in mind that if you do not live in Golden, and I do not sell the book to you in Golden, the cost is $16.95.  Shipping via media mail at the US Post Office is $2.63 so make your check for the total.

Mail it to me at

1337 North Ford Street

Golden CO 80403

And thank you again and again for your enthusiasm for my work!

Endorsement

“From family and fiction I have learned most everything I know about the world; Scent of the Wild adds to both of those categories, a practical casebook of lived family therapy, a narrative that honors Fate and Destiny in heartwrenching detail.”
