VIP Fan of the Month – Fun Features

Elizabeth and Bette


I met Elizabeth on Goodreads way back in March of 2012 when we were (and still are) both members of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Book. What a wonderful way to meet a woman who is an awesome reviewer and I am proud to say my Facebook Fan Club.

The first book (of mine) that Elizabeth reviewed was Spare Change. She gave it a glowing five-star review and then moved on to read all of my other books. Now Elizabeth is one of my top reviewers and she receives an ARC of every book that comes out.

We got together in Florida… Elizabeth is from Kansas but when she and her hubby Mike came down for vacation we made a date and met at a halfway point in a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach. I can’t remember what we ate, but I can remember that we had a wonderful time. What fun it was to get to see the personal side of Elizabeth; and while we chatted about books, quilting and needlework, our hubbies found plenty to talk about.

This is a special time for Elizabeth because she has retirement looming on the near horizon, which means plenty of free time for reading and pleasurable pursuits.

To thank Elizabeth for being part of my #1 Fan list, I am sending her a “I Love Books with Heart” tote along with some goodies that I’ve selected especially for her, And on a personal note…Hope you are soon dancing a jig Elizabeth.


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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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