Fabulous Fan Fun

ElizabethFor An Author, nothing is more fun than getting together with a Fan Friend or a Book Club. I’ve been fortunate enough to do both and recently I had an opportunity to meet a Kansas Gal who is friend, fan and beta reader.  Great fun.

I met Elizabeth Richards on Goodreads when I wrote to thank her for a review she’d done of Spare Change, she then went on to suggest Spare Change as her local Book Club read and I visited with the group when they met to discuss the book…by telephone, of course. Over the course of time and books, Elizabeth and I became friends, then she told me that she and hubby had already planned a Florida vacation for May…unfortunately they were headed to Naples (Florida’s West Coast) and we are in Port St. Lucie on the East Coast.

But like the heros and heroines of our books, those obstacles did not stand in our way, we met in Fort Lauderdale by the Sea and enjoyed a three-hour lunch. Yum, lobster rolls, crab melts and iced tea. It is so much fun to learn about the lives of our readers. How she and hubby met, all the fun places they’ve lived, their family, and of course we talked about our dogs – doesn’t everyone?

So, I say to all of  you, just as I said to Elizabeth…If you’re in the neighborhood, look me up. And remember, I have a veyr large neighborhood.

Thanks Elizabeth for a wonderful afternoon.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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