I'm a Pulpwood Queen and for those of you unversed in the ways of the piney woods of Texas that is a female bookclub reader. (Men are Lumberjacks, I think). An international bookclub, the Lake Charles chapter is reading for its August selection a good book called, Heart of Lies by M. L. Malcolm. (It may be a REALLY good book, but I'm only halfway through.)
A compeling story and page-turner, it has something for everyone. Set between WWI and WWII, it is a high intrige love story, traversing several continents. Interesting writing from a writer's point of view, as Malcolm changes voice within the scenes. Something I was told was a NO NO, but it works for her. It's published (Harpercollins), and was previously published under the name Silent Lies by Longstreet Press.
Ms. Malcom will be visiting the Lake Area in August for the monthly Pulpwood Queen's meeting, Aug. 25. To honor Malcolm and promote book sales, the PWQ's are hosting a meet and greet at Central Library in Lake Charles, LA starting at 5pm. You're invited. Refreshements will be served and a great time will be had as we Queens rock.
