LitVersations, The Book Conversation Game

Hello!!!

My name is Debra Owsley and I want to tell you about my passion project that I’ve been working on for over two years-- LitVersations.
 I’m an avid reader and love talking about books with my friends and book club members. When discussing books with other readers, I realized we were having the same dialog, different book. So I wanted to change the conversation to a LitVersation!

 I created LitVersations The Book Conversation card game to really get into a deeper conversation and
comprehension of the story, it's characters and also to delve into what may have been on the author’s mind when they were writing the story.

 These 70 thought provoking questions tend to spin off into spontaneous conversation more in depth book discussion.  They also help promote richer exchanges and interpretations and pull everyone into the LitVersation, even the quietest book club members. Instead of allowing the discussion to lull or die out, the moderator or club members need to only pull another card to keep the discussionactive.

My test users have reported that their discussions were more fun, lasted longer and challenged members to probe for a deeper understanding when they used the LitVersations game cards.

I want to make reading and discussing books even more fun with this game.
This game was created by a book lover, for book lovers.

These questions are also great for bloggers and interviewers, when interviewing authors.

 I am absolutely passionate about The LitVersations project I've created, and want to introduce it to the world but...
I need your help to produce this game.

I want to be able to produce and purchase

these game cards in bulk to keep the prices affordable and made in the USA.

In order to keep the price affordable, however,    mass-production is recommended because small print runs are not cost efficient.

All monies raised will be used to cover production costs.

I will not be able to go further without your support,word of mouth and pre-orders.

 Please help me bring this to you and readers across the world!! Please donate whatever you can.  No donation is too small because any amount will help me to reach my goal.

There are rewards at certain donation levels, for your

generosity.

 Thank you for letting me share my passion project with you, and any assistance you are able to offer is deeply appreciated. 

Debra Owsley LitVersations  Owner and Creator

Really trying hard to meet my goal date of June 30th. Please donate what you can, nothing is too small. One of the goals of doing this campaign was to get the game printed in a large bulk order, so I could make the price lower. Not asking for a hand out, just a hand up. I truly appreciate all those who have already pitched in. Can I ask you to share this to someone who may be interested

Here are a few comments about LitVersations from my beta testers.....
In today's busy world, we often put off little things, like preparing discussion questions for our book club group, until the very last minute or we find ourselves totally unprepared when we discover there are no questions at the end of the book, as we start the discussion. Debra Owsley has solved these problems for the busy book club member by creating a compact and portable way to have probing and well-thought out discussion questions at our fingertips at all times. Her cards are a unique time saver that can be used over and over!

I am writing in regards of the Lit-Versations game. I really LOVE the concept. Great idea!
Yes, I would use this at my club meetings to enhance the discussion and for the spontaneous questions. The card games questions are on point. They cover every aspect of a novel. It is better than using a Reader's Guide.If I were you I wouldn't change
a thing with the game.. I love the design
or style of the cards. It was very easy to follow the directions and questions were easy
to read. Understandable game . Directions are clearly stated. The name of the game
is simply AWESOME.
Debra , I look forward to purchasing this game.
Much success sister!

From Cover 2 Cover Book Club is excited to endorse LitVersations, the literary card game. It is definitely a game changer in the world of book club discussions; an exciting way to stimulate conversation, and break the ice. The directions were easy to follow, the questions were intriguing, and the members thoroughly enjoyed them. One member said that the questions also assisted her in writing better book reviews

This is truly a great idea Debra and I'm confident that books clubs will enjoy and it will definitely spice up their meetings
