No one really knows what goes on in the AMAZON universe. But here we are on a BEST SELLER list!
And for however long that lasts – Amazon updates the list hourly – it’s terrific.
“This is an incredibly moving, revealing and profound collection of stories inspired by a series of ‘salon’ events for women. They are a raw insight into women’s lives – their secrets, hopes and disappointments; their loves and their losses. I couldn’t put it down.”
Sometimes when we tell our stories we travel down the same well-worn tracks. The questions in The Sunday Story Club are carefully crafted to sidestep the prepared narratives you use to explain your life experiences to yourself and others. In this way, you learn about your self.
We wrote The Sunday Story Club to share some real-life stories and also encourage others to run their own story salons so that they too could experience their magic.
It has begun.
Thanks, Ashlee & Cristina for the feedback on running your first salon. It sounded fabulous.
My co-author, Doris Brett, and I launched The Sunday Story Club at Readings Book Store in Hawthorn, Melbourne, recently. The launch was so successful we almost developed hand cramps from signing books.
Doris’s talk addresses the importance of face-to-face communication, explains why telling our stories out loud can help us understand ourselves and shows how having deeper conversations can lead to insight into our life experiences and, ultimately, to wisdom.
Thousands of books are published each month so getting your book reviewed at all is worthy of popping the champagne cork.
I read the review holding my breath. Then I had to read it again because I was too terrified for the words to register.
Hallelujah! The short review (below) by Fiona Capp was terrific. I could breathe again.
This is the blog that turned into a Salon that turned into a book called The Sunday Story Club.
We wrote the book to not only share some of the stories but to also show you how to run your own Salon.

We like to use quotes from famous writers or philosophers as if they are the only people who reflect on life.
The quote above is by ex-model Yolanda Hadid, star of the reality TV show, The Real Wives of Beverley Hills.
We all carry stories within us. THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB (PanMac) is the book group without books where you share your own stories of love, loss, trauma & triumph BOOKTOPIA.
This is one of the real-life stories of breaking up with a friend from The Sunday Story Club.
In Foster’s 1909 novella, The Machine Stops, people communicate via glowing screens but live lonely, isolated lives. His dystopian world has become our reality. We wrote The Sunday Story Club as an antidote to screens.
