* MY MEMOIR IS AVAILABLE ON KINDLE *

To everyone who has been patiently waiting for my memoir to be available on Kindle, it's here! Just click on the direct link below. The Kindle version is $3.99

 Amazon.com   http://www.amazon.com/Pigtails-Hairs-Becky-Lewellen-Povich-ebook/dp/B00IXBG1F6/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394564953&sr=1-1&keywords=from+pigtails+to+chin+hairs


~~~

Also, here's an option I wasn't even aware of that some people might be interested in....The kindle matchbook...


If you buy a new print edition of this book (or purchased one in the past), you can buy the Kindle edition for only $1.99 (Save 50%). Print edition purchase must be sold by Amazon.

Below are links for the Kindle version at Amazon UK, and Amazon Australia. *I found out today that Amazon Australia (AU) does not ship certain things, and my print copy happens to be one of them. Weird! So, if any Aussies would like to buy my print copy directly from me, I will help pay the postage! Just leave a comment or send me an e-mail (in my profile).
 
 
 
 
 
 Thanks again to everyone who has already bought my book, and especially for all the wonderful reviews left at Amazon, Goodreads, and other sites. I truly appreciate it.


Remember when I posted about my little collection of statues of people or animals holding a book, or books! I'm showing this little girl again because she looks like "spring" to me.....and today's temperature is very spring-like! (I just looked back and I got her at a dollar store in May of 2011!)

** Welcome to my newest follower, Robin. I hope you will stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see!  Thank you so much! **


I've always professed that my dream is for From Pigtails to Chin Hairs: A Memoir & More to become a bestseller, and I make no bones about it. It may seem like a pipe dream to some, but hey.....it's my dream!

      Glad you like the little figurine, too.....and oh yeah, Chicago is almost always worse then St. Louis in the winters....and this year we came in a close second, I think.

  9. I have it! And love the reviews in the beginning. Well done! I, for one, read every single word of a book or magazine. (OCD maybe, dunno, don't care, I just DO) And I LOVE your acknowledgements. Whoo-hoo I know a REAL author and am about to launch into her memoir! Thanks, dearest Becky for all you do for me too. (((Hugs))) Jo xxx
