Saturday in the Park

By Bette Lee Crosby / February 12, 2010

Very windy dsy, forget using signage! Although it proved to be a long day, it was lots of fun and several new readers purchased books. Loads of people signed up to connect to the website and blog post, so now I’ve got to get moving and put some meaningful input on here. Several aspiring writers registered for contact info and I really do enjoy helping other writers get started, so I’m always willing to share what knowledge I have of the publishing industry. Although I was positioned at the tailend of the exhibition walkway, I had the good fortune to be next to a delightfully talented artist by the name of Mary Ellen Koser. Her work is amazing. You can view her complete portfolio at – it’s well worth the viewing!
All in all, was this event worth the time and preparation it took to participate and would I do it again? The jury is still out. I’ve done a lot of speaking engagements in Vero Beach and I like having the opportunity to expand the market for my books, so the answer is probably a yes…but stay tuned for a final decision. This photo was taken in front of Mary Ellen’s paintings.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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