Cover Story for The Twelfth Child by Bette Lee Crosby

The Twelfth Child by Bette Lee Crosby Book ONE Serendipity SeriesIt’s always awesome to hear from friends, fans and reviewers. Most times it’s good but in one instance it caused me to stop and think. One particular review on Amazon addressed not just the story but also the cover of my novel, The Twelfth Child. Funny thing is, I have no idea of who the reviewer is but I do remember she gave the story a five star review and said “Loved the story, hated the cover.” She went on to say that the cover simply didn’t capture the premise of the book.

When someone is right, I’ve got to give them credit for being right. In this case I had to agree with the reviewer, but taking a successful book and having the cover redesigned seemed a terrifying task. Then along came Previously Loved Treasures, Book two in The Serendipity Series.

Now there is family pride involved. The Twelfth Child had to have a face lift to keep up with her baby sister, so I went for it. This is the new story-telling cover of The Twelfth Child. I hope my readers like it as much as I do.

Please note, if you have already read The Twelfth Child, do not buy this book. It is the same story, it simply has a shiny new face. However, if you’ve read and enjoyed The Twelfth Child, be sure to mark your calendar for April 28th, the official release day for Previously Loved Treasures. I promise it will be s book you’ll enjoy.

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.
