A Love Story for People Who Love Books
Posted by KAREN WOJCIK BERNER
Happy Release Day, everyone!
I’m so excited to share A Groovy Kind of Love with you. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the first two Bibliophiles books. Each is written as a stand-alone, so you won’t be lost if you pick up A Groovy Kind of Love first.
Before I tell you a little about the novel, may I offer you an appetizer? Perhaps a drink?
How about a smoothie? Very apropos considering co-protagonist Spring Pearson's family owns a juice bar famous for them. Or maybe something stronger? It is a party, after all.
And before I forget, all you have to do is write a comment below for a chance to win a Starbucks, Amazon, or Red Mango gift card. Fun fact: A Red Mango frozen yogurt and smoothies store occupies the building that the Pearson's Ambrosia juice bar does in my fictional Naperville. I’m also giving away the first two books in the Bibliophiles series, A Whisper to a Scream and Until My Soul Gets It Right. Just my little thank you for stopping by on this big day.
When I started out back in 2010, I had no idea what I was doing. Fresh from the Amazon Breakthrough Novel contest (A Whisper to a Scream was a quarterfinalist), I figured I’d throw it out as an ebook and see what happened. It was a new era in publishing, and I was eager to be a part of it.
Over the years, I’ve met a lot of great people both through the virtual world and face to face at book fairs, readings, and book club visits. I’ve shared excellent writers on this blog’s Flash Fiction Fridays during Bibliophilic Blather’s first couple of years, discussed my favorite books and authors, and even helped a few people with grammar issues with my old feature, "Editing for Grammarphobes." It’s been a fantastic ride.
This writing thing, it gets into your blood and embeds into your core. I’m very lucky to be able to do what I love every day.
I have a fantastic team that has works with me to publish the Bibliophiles books. A huge thanks to Streetlight Graphics who designs both the paperbacks and ebooks, Red Adept Editing, my beta readers and ARC team. And last, but never least, my husband and sons for their endless support and for putting up with me and my artistic self.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you A Groovy Kind of Love.
Uptight British lit lover meets a free spirit at a book club and his world is turned upside down! Thaddeus Mumblegarden IV was content with his Brit coms and books until he met free-spirited Spring Pearson at a book club meeting. But will an old college pinkie-swear promise Spring made fifteen years ago get in the way of this bibliophilic romance?
It is available at the following online retailers.

To celebrate Groovy's release, the first two books in the series, A Whisper to a Scream and Until My Soul Gets It Right are on sale for just 99¢ for the ebooks. The paperbacks are also discounted a bit.
If you could, would you mind sharing it with your friends and spread the word? I’d really appreciate it. Thanks. You’re the best.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, and don't forget to comment for a chance to win the prizes.
P.S. Here's Phil Collins's 1988 remake of the song originally released by The Mindbenders in 1966.
