Readers share – What is your favorite author fan moment?

Having a great time at BEA and I had a wonderful short interview with Sheila from ArmchairBEA:Betty Crosby at BEA with Previously Loved Treasures

Bette Lee Crosby is at BEA for the first time promoting her seventh book, Previously Loved Treasures.  This book is the follow up to The Twelfth Child and is Bette’s seventh published book with Bent Pine Publishing.

Previously Loved Treasures is a beautifully covered book about a young woman trying to rebuild her life and discovers an unusual second hand store where there the owner seems to anticipate her every need.

“I never meant to write a series,” Bette says with a laugh, “But when I came to the end of The Twelfth Child, I realized I was not done with these characters.”  

Bette’s advice to anyone who wishes to write, “Be demanding of yourself and true to yourself.  If you fall in love with the book – your readers will too!

Bette is at BEA this week with her husband and is surprised at what a big show it is.

The ArmchairBEA had another great question about meeting an author so I asked my BFFs on Facebook and they gave a couple of their favorite fan moments:

I met Alex Kava and Erica Spindler. I bought their books and got their autographs after they had shared their thoughts on their books and writing along with some fun personal thoughts and feelings. Of course, I feel privileged to know Bette on a bit of a more personal level and love her books just as much as murder and mayhem. – Sherry

Ok I have met Nora Roberts and Marie Bostwick but the venues were so different but I have to say meeting Marie was the best! I went to her signing recently in Hagerstown MD at a quilt shop which was more like a book show bc she literally put on a show and she was so humble and sweet like we had known her forever! I got books signed by her and a hug! I mean wow I was starstruck and I will never ever forget it! – Maria

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
