Drum Roll Jubilee’s Journey Book Two Wyattsville Series

DRUM ROLL for JUBILEE’S JOURNEY, BOOK TWO IN THE WYATTSVILLE SERIES

BLCrosby-JubileeJones-Original2Jubilee’s Journey is scheduled for release in October 2013.

The Wyattsville series started with Spare Change, but it wasn’t meant to be a series. Spare Change was written as a stand alone book…but somewhere along the line I fell in love with Ethan Allen and Olivia, so much so that I simply couldn’t bear to have them leave me.

Like Spare Change, Jubilee’s Journey could easily be a stand alone novel…but instead it’s the best of all worlds. It’s a full circle story that enabled me to go back and revisit some of the people I came to love.

Jubilee’s Journey starts with the story of a coal mining family from West Virginia, so I thought my readers might enjoy meeting the source  of my inspiration… they are my family. Well, my mother’s sister and her family to be exact.

Beginning Monday I will feature three stories about these awesome people. They are inspirational, heartwarming and real. They are part of who I am and why goodness inspires me. For more years than I can remember I have held these stories in my head and now it’s time to share them.  Join me for a look at what life was like in the coal mining country of West Virginia. Once you get to know the very special people in these stories, I think you’ll be as anxious as I was to move along with Jubilee’s Journey.

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.
