Do you love sitting around with friend chatting about books? Does the idea of curling up with a good book and cup of something warm make you smile? I’d like to invite you to come join me at The Little Blue Cottage — OPENING IN ONE WEEK ON NOVEMBER 12!
The Little Blue Cottage (LBC) is the name of a brand new virtual gathering spot for us to discuss all things reading, creativity, faith, and friendship. Imagine pulling up a crunchy gravel driveway to a cute little cottage just off a country road, tucked under tall shade trees and hugged by blooming bushes or showered by dancing fall leaves. There’s a porch for rocking, a fireplace for cozy chats when the air is crisp, stacks of books everywhere you turn, and fresh coffee is always ready.
You can “visit” the LBC by way of a monthly email and an exclusive Facebook group. Here’s what you can expect when you pop by the cottage each month:
- A FREE Short Story. If you’ve been around a long time, these “flash fiction” stories of approximately 500-1000 words will be similar to the Blue Ridge University series I used to offer in my newsletters. The sweet Southern stories with a hint of romance will be included in each mid-month email. Each installment will build on each other like old fashioned serial stories. You’ll get to know the characters and anticipate what happens next!
- Book Talk. I’ll share news of new titles releasing, great sales/deals, and recent reviews or book cover reveals from around the Christian fiction community. From time to time, I’ll even welcome an author to stop by for a mini interview or chat.
- Community & Friendship. Each month in the email, there will be something shared by a member of our LBC community! This might be sharing about a favorite book, posing a question or short devotional to the community for discussion on our private Facebook group page, or even sharing a favorite recipe, memory, or creative idea. If you’ve got ideas on how to encourage our community, let me know!
- Exclusive Membership in LBC Facebook Group! Subscribers will receive a link in our first LBC email on November 12 to join a private Facebook group where we can continue getting to know each other. (Subscribing after our LBC launch? No worries! New subscribers will be sent a link, too!) We’ll imagine sitting on the porch in rocking chairs, casually sipping on iced tea (or coffee during the cooler fall season), and chatting the day away.
