Welcome To The Club

Hello my Crazy Little Book Fiends!

Welcome to the inaugural post for the new GTBC Blog.  I am very excited to get the blog launched and to start interacting with you all. I am new to Blogger and have been trying to learn the ins & outs so that I can run a fun and easy blog for our club members. As you know Facebook has become very strict on their Giveaway Policy so I am going LIVE here a little sooner than expected so please be patient with me. Here are a few things you can expect on this blog:

1.) Book Info:  Release dates, Covers, Synopsis’, Teasers, ETC… I will do my best to keep you informed on the status of all your favorite books.

2.) Author Info:  I will be letting you know everything from author’s official websites to appearances & signing schedules.

3.) Reviews:  I will be posting links to my book reviews to help you navigate which books are worth the read.

4.) Giveaways & Contests:  I have lots of swags, signed books & gifts to share with you all. All of our future contest will be hosted here. I will still keep you all informed via FB & Twitter, but to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun be sure to subscribe to this blog for updates.

5.) Local GTBC Info:  Our book club is open to anyone anywhere. We have certainly grown from our small group of 24 to over 600 members. I am so proud of our little book club that could.  We are keeping with our tradition of having local meetings for our local members who meet once a month and enjoy food, wine and discussions on the book selection of the month. I will be posting dates, locations, wine selections, books of the month, etc for these meetings here as well. This is for members in the greater Charlotte, NC area and is open to anyone interested in making new friends with the same passion for reading.

Ok so there you have it in a nutshell. I am just a wife and career woman with a full-time reading addiction that loves to share her passion with others. I hope you enjoy the page and that you find it helpful and fun! Welcome to the madness ;)

WARNING:  I am an autocorrect nightmare on mobile devices. I will do my best to make sure all my post are at least coherent … but there will definitely be typos and misspellings in my haste so please understand that I am not always intoxicated when posting (sometimes but not always) and I am most likely just overly excited ;)

SO LETS DO OUR FIRST CONTEST SHALL WE >>>> Ok here is how it works. Just subscribe to this blog and leave me a comment of encouragement below (shamelessly asking) to let me know we are in this together (include your email address) and you are entered to win a $25 Amazon or B&N Giftcard (winners choice) and a little GTBC Swag.  I will let Random(dot)org choose our winner Sunday Night (April 7th). NOTE: If you send someone our way and they comment that you sent them… you will get an extra entry.  GOOD LUCK!
