Press Release for Grannies are Big Business

Press Release for Grannies are Big Business


April 28, 2014:

USA Today Bestselling Author Bette Lee Crosby, a grandma herself, has found success by catering to an audience few writers recognize. Her latest release, Previously Loved Treasures, Book Two in the Serendipity Series debuted as one of Amazon’s Hot New Releases and if it follows in the tracks of Book One, The Twelfth Child, it will most likely be a bestseller.

Crosby has carved out a unique niche in writing stories about older women facing real life challenges. No crocheting grannies in this group, her protagonists are sassy, smart and Southern. They deal with issues like unwanted children, loss of a spouse and financial ruin. Readers have identified with Crosby’s characters and turned this heretofore unknown into a #1 Bestseller on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

Crosby, often compared to Fannie Flagg, manages to find humor in even the most dire situation and that’s precisely what her readers want. Reader’s View stated “Crosby’s talent lies in not only telling a good compelling story, but telling it from a unique perspective.”

Winner of fifteen Literary Awards, Crosby has seven published novels and is credited with writing the memoir of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records calls the World’s Longest Living Quadriplegic.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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