It’s good to be quirky – Previously Loved Treasures by Bette Lee Crosby

Previously Loved Treasures by Bette Lee CrosbyI’ve gone on before about Goodreads and why I love hanging out there and getting to know readers, and here’s another reason –

Previously Loved Treasures was added to the Quirky Southern Fiction List.

It’s number 181 right now but if you’ve read this story and think it qualifies as Quirky Southern Fiction, feel free to drop by and give it a vote. If people vote it might climb the list and move from page 2.

I’m happy to be on the list with such notable titles as The Help, Fried Green Tomatoes, To Kill A Mockingbird, and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. My stories all have a southern voice since I grew up there and readers have compared my stories to a couple of these titles. Makes a momma proud and you know how southern mamas are!

If you didn’t know the official launch party for Previously Loved Treasures was held over the last two days, so my new release is LIVE on all venues (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo). If you haven’t left a review yet please do. Reviews help get the word out about a book and reach new readers.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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.
