BEA is over and now just a lovely memory – Bette Lee Crosby

Bette with her banner at BEABEA is over and now just a lovely memory.

Coral and I had lots of fun but it was overwhelming sometimes. I had no idea the Javitts Center was that big with a mile long hike (literally) to get to the bathroom. I got my workout for the week done in one day.

Bette signing a book at BEAI met lots of awesome librarians and people at the various companies I have been working with these past couple of years. Learned some new tricks and also gathered information about the process of getting books into libraries, which is one of our goals for this year. There were plenty of great seminars to check out and learn from too.

Article in PW at BEAIt was a wonderful trip. One of my most fun moments was spending time with Coral and getting to know about her varied accomplishments… she is WAY too modest. Did you know this gal won a grant to study the conflict between North and South Korea… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. More to come. In the meantime, thought you would enjoy seeing some pictures from the trip. It was fun but a bit hectic so glad to be home!

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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