* CRAZY? DID SOMEONE SAY "CRAZY?" *

Would you believe I've recently passed the SIX MONTH time period since my memoir was published on November 6, 2013? During those months I've been promoting it like crazy, which is obvious to anyone who has landed here more than once.

 
Crazy? Did someone say "crazy"?


Why, no....I haven't totally "lost it" yet!


I have two more blog stops where friends have graciously allowed me to be the Guest Host. So, in between and after those, I intend to keep my blog posts interesting, informative, humorous, etc...and on a variety of subjects. Oh, and I'll have giveaways from time to time of assorted goodies! Which means I won't be yackity-yacking about my book all the time. (Aren't you all glad? Do I see a standing ovation?)


I LOVE this picture!
 
This was taken in one of those photo booths around 1993 or '94.
That's me in the middle, with a straggly perm and wearing contacts!
I may reveal the names of the two boys at a later date......

    1. Hi Donna! Thank you! I'm so glad I managed to save that poster. It's just a piece of paper about 8 x 10!

  2. Your post makes me smile, crazy, who's crazy? LOL. I sometimes promote my books like crazy too. Sometimes on Facebook. Sometime we could chat via email on crazy promo ideas.

    1. Hi Terra! Glad I can make you smile! I would love to e-mail with you about "crazy promo ideas." Every time I look at a new site about book marketing, I learn at least one thing. But there are SO MANY sites....and that's what makes me crazy! I feel as if "Will I ever know all that I can possibly know about this?" And of course, the answer is NO! )

    1. Claudia, I absolutely love your comment! I think I'll type it on a Word document in about a 40 font and hang it on my wall! LOL
      I can honestly say that I was and still am a fun person to live with! When I act goofy, Ron likes to say that old line of Mr. Grant's on the Mary Tyler Moore show, "I HATE spunk!" And then we both laugh!

  6. Ha. I love the quote Becky and the pictures are precious. If you're crazy, that makes me a total lunatic. How fun.

    1. Hi Sandy! You're awesome! I wish I could say I was signing books there in that Barnes and Noble store...but alas, no! But, I was having a great time with some writer friends in the cafe! That was right after I received my first supply of books.

  9. Hello Becky...You look wonderful!

    I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated your kind words on my post about my beloved kitty, Honey Cat, dying. It was a week ago today. I'm still soooo sad.

    Thank you for commenting. It meant a lot to me. Susan
