Welcome readers, authors & publishers!  My book loving friend, Stacey,and I would love to invite you to join our online Salt Water Reads book club.  We live in different states off the Gulf Coast & we both share a dream of one day owning a bookstore on the beach.  We choose a new book selection every month and host an online discussion with our readers at the end of each month about the book, and in many cases we are fortunate to have the author stop by!  We hope you can join us!    

Here is what our featured authors are saying about Salt Water Reads...

"When Salt Water Reads chose my book as their monthly read, I was beside myself with excitement. SWR is the creme de la creme of online bookclubs, and I had so much fun interacting with both Kourtney and Stacey and all the fabulous readers. Did it make my book a success? Absolutely. But I also gained me a whole new reader community to interact with, new friendships I treasure, and a lot of great book recommendations. What a win-win!"

            - J.T. Ellison, New York Times and USA Today best selling author

“Salt Water Reads is a wonderful community of passionate and engaged readers. Stacey and Kourtney are amazing advocates for authors and their books. It was an honor to be a featured author for Salt Water Reads and I had a lovely experience chatting with their readers.”

              - Chanel Cleeton, USA Today bestselling author of Next Year in Havana

"Saltwater Reads brings together a fantastic group of readers with a wide range of interests, backgrounds, and tastes. As a debut author, having my novel selected as a Saltwater Read introduced me to a supportive and passionate community that values discussion, creativity, diversity, and--above all else--the joy of savoring a great story. The relationships I've built with this readership inspire me every day, both as a reader and writer."

               - Elise Hooper, Author of The Other Alcott an Indie Next Pick                          and People's Pick of the Week

"One of the highlights of my time as an author on Instagram has been connecting with the Salt Water Reads book club. Such a smart, engaging and enthusiastic group of book lovers: It was a joy to hear their insights and reactions to my novel, and to make personal connections that I still value, all these months later. Instagram is a richer place for authors because of Salt Water Reads."

                               - Janelle Brown, New York Times best selling author
