I work with a wide range of publishers to select books and authors for Poppy Loves Book Club.
The author always particiaptes in the discussion, either in person or online and our members absolutely love interacting with them on social media during the month as well.

A note to unpublished authors...
I very much want to support new and unpublished writers. I select one unpublished author each year, which we read in the month of September. I have filled this slot for 2016.
If you are an unpublished author, please contact me in January 2017 and I will select the book that month.
