One week to go!

One week from today, a New York book club is having a meeting. They read a “light” book every August. This August, it’s my first book, The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom & Their Lover. I was invited to attend.

My book didn’t get chosen randomly – I went to college with one of the book club members. She’s promised me that if they have things they really hate about the book, they will save them for the next meeting, when I’m not there. (Heh.)

I am actually pretty excited, and glad I was invited. I’ve already booked my travel and a hotel room for the night. This is the first time a book club has read one of my books (that I know of) and I’m desperately curious what they will think of it, from their pov of people used to talking about more literary fiction. Will they see anything that I didn’t realize I’d intended? And, after so long, what do I think of the book myself?

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.
