Having a great time at BEA and I had a wonderful short interview with Sheila from ArmchairBEA:
Bette Lee Crosby is at BEA for the first time promoting her seventh book, Previously Loved Treasures. This book is the follow up to The Twelfth Child and is Bette's seventh published book with Bent Pine Publishing.
Previously Loved Treasures is a beautifully covered book about a young woman trying to rebuild her life and discovers an unusual second hand store where there the owner seems to anticipate her every need.
“I never meant to write a series,” Bette says with a laugh, “But when I came to the end of The Twelfth Child, I realized I was not done with these characters.”
Bette's advice to anyone who wishes to write, “Be demanding of yourself and true to yourself. If you fall in love with the book – your readers will too!
Bette is at BEA this week with her husband and is surprised at what a big show it is.
The ArmchairBEA had another great question about meeting an author so I asked my BFFs on Facebook and they gave a couple of their favorite fan moments:
I met Alex Kava and Erica Spindler. I bought their books and got their autographs after they had shared their thoughts on their books and writing along with some fun personal thoughts and feelings. Of course, I feel privileged to know Bette on a bit of a more personal level and love her books just as much as murder and mayhem. – Sherry
Ok I have met Nora Roberts and Marie Bostwick but the venues were so different but I have to say meeting Marie was the best! I went to her signing recently in Hagerstown MD at a quilt shop which was more like a book show bc she literally put on a show and she was so humble and sweet like we had known her forever! I got books signed by her and a hug! I mean wow I was starstruck and I will never ever forget it! – Maria
