Let’s start a new thread for blogging for writers and readers by name of #Mondaymention. Under this you will share one excerpt from your book or a book you have read that has some component of strong response or action by a female protagonist indicated by the hashtag #feistyfemmes. So, when you share the excerpt put the title of the post as I have, except that you must replace my book title with the title from which you take the excerpt. Also please share all the posts with the hashtags. Since we are all busy we’ll limit sharing to Mondays and Tuesdays only.

Did you like her response? Leave a comment below.
