Pay it Forward

By Bette Lee Crosby / February 19, 2010

A dear friend of mine, Sunny Serafino — a wonderful writer with several award-winning novels to her credit — sent the following e-mail to all of her followers and friends. I thought it was so well explained, that I have decided to post it here on the blog. Please know that this is an open invitation, extended to anyone and everyone. My goal is to get an Oprah
Winfrey style book club going with everyone reading Cracks in the Sidewalk for FREE!  Down the road I will be opening a discussion forum where we can all share out thoughts and opinions on this book.

Here’s the e-mail – please copy and paste it into a few thousand e-mails to your friends and family:

It is my pleasure to introduce you to my dear friend Bette Lee Crosby who is a terrific writer. She lives on the east coast of Florida and has written two books, Cracks in the Sidewalk and Girl Child. BOTH these books took first place literary awards! How’s that for great writing?

Bette is launching herself on the internet in an effort to expand her horizon and get herself known by other avid readers and she’s come up with a terrific idea. By visiting her blog site you can get to read a chapter of Cracks in the Sidewalk and every week she’ll post the next chapter. So, you can read her book,chapter by chapter, FREE.  Bet you’ll get hooked. Also her blog site will offer all kinds of book-related stuff.

SO…go to http:///betteleecrosby.wordpress.com and meet Bette. Get started on her latest novel while she’s working on the next. And, if you like what you see, and you will, please share this website with others you think might be interested because the more people who visit the blog will help her reach those who might not ever get a chance to take part in this evolutionary concept. It’s a win—win situation.

Happy reading,

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.
