The Widow of Wall Street, launches on April 11 and I’m celebrating by inviting a book club to join me for a night out in their town. The conversations I’ve had, in person, on Skype, and in person with book clubs have been some of my very best hours as an author.
The rules to enter the drawing are simple:
Any book club pre-ordering 5 or more copies (print or eBooks) can enter the random drawing to be my guests for dinner at a great restaurant in your town.
