Southern Book Carnival 10/11-14

Thanks to Christy’s Book Addiction I’m doing a comment challenge and giveaway of A Home in Hopeful. 

If you’ve read Spare Change, you’ve already met Canasta Jones. In that story she was a woman in her nineties, and blessed with an outlook on life that few come to know. Her ‘down-home’ advice changed the life of Olivia Doyle and brought smiles to countless readers.

I’ve come to realize that Canasta and I are not so different in that we both had a Southern Mama to guide our footsteps and mold us into the women we became. I wrote this short story because I thought you might enjoy hearing Canasta tell about her early years.

Everyone who comments and tells me about the woman/women that influenced their lives will receive a free copy of A Home in Hopeful. Be sure to leave an email when you log in to comment. 🙂

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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