FAN of the MONTH – April


FAN of the MONTH – April

April is part of my Advance Reviewer Group and I’ve had the pleasure of talking with her via email as she reviews my books. I asked if she would mind being my Fan of the Month for April and then I realized her name is April! I swear it wasn’t planned. I hope you enjoy learning more about her and a small gift is on the way.


Hello, I’m April. I’m in my late 30’s and my intense love of books has only deepened as I’ve aged. My parents read to me from the time I was born until I could read to myself and in doing so they gave me a great gift I could never repay. Books are everything to me! And I’ll read almost anything you hand me, cereal box, junk mail, you name it. Ha ha!!

So when I’m lucky enough to find a wonderful new author like, Bette Lee Crosby, I can’t tell you how exciting it is! I live with my boyfriend of many years (and our four very different cats) who also enjoys reading (but not quite like I do which is book after book lol).

Recently I was diagnosed with a chronic pain condition and a few chronic illnesses and was forced to stop working and was just devastated but my love of reading has really saved me! It’s gotten me through some very difficult times lately and some long days.

When I’m reading one of Ms. Bette Lee Crosby’s books I can forget about pain and unwell feelings and just fall into the worlds she created in her books with her amazing talent. Reading is unlike any other entertainment, you can build the story up in your mind, see the details as you picture them and explore it all in your mind.

Getting lost in a great book you can forgot your troubles or stress for hours/days/weeks! It’s truly an amazing thing. Thank you for your wonderful books Ms.Crosby, I can’t tell you how much they’ve helped me and entertained me. 🙂

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.
