* 3 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH & A SPECIAL BOOK PRICE *

Can it possibly be THREE years since I finally completed and published my memoir??
Publication date: November 6, 2013.

Sometimes I still can't believe I actually did it, but I had lots of help.

+ In honor of my deceased father, I'm offering a print copy of my memoir at a discounted price through the end of December 2016. Since Amazon and Barnes & Noble's online store already sell it for $12.95 plus shipping, if you buy it directly from me I'll not only match their price, but will also pay the shipping! (In USA only. Anywhere outside of the USA, I'll have to charge shipping.)


My website http://www.beckypovich.com/ has always offered it at $18.14, which includes Missouri tax and shipping. But I'll take care of the tax, too, for this special offer.

 
So, that means it's only $12.95 each when shipped within the USA!
I'll also be happy to sign them individually, if requested.
 
 
 
 MY MEMOIR WOULD MAKE A
FANTASTIC CHRISTMAS GIFT!

* If you are interested in ordering, please e-mail me or leave a comment and I'll get right back to you! * THANK YOU!
 
 

 
 
As many Amazon reviews point out, this is a great read,
no matter your age or gender -
 
 
"...I often found myself putting Povich's book down while I stopped in my cerebral rest stop to pursue my own past, and marvel at the similarities and differences. This is not a book through which one races - savor the nuances and differences, as one savors a multi-course banquet...Be sure to have your favorite comfort drink by your side - tea, coffee, lemonade - as this is as much a conversation with Becky Povich sharing her side of life, as it is a reminiscence oasis." - John Busbee, writer, actor, director, also the producer and host of "The Culture Buzz" on KFMG 98.9 FM, Des Moines, Iowa.
 
 
 "Charming!" - A.E. Hotchner, St Louis' own bestselling author.
 
 
"Becky Povich's memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs, is a largely affectionate account of life's ups and downs from a writer who learned to find her voice -- and her bliss." - Teri Rizvi, founder of the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop at the University of Dayton.
 
 
 
 
I'LL ALSO BE HAPPY TO GIFT WRAP EACH BOOK! WHERE ELSE CAN YOU RECEIVE SUCH PERSONAL SERVICE, AND WITH A SMILE?  J

 



 

+ So, what does my deceased father have to do with a special price on my memoir? Because tomorrow, November 30th, is the anniversary of his death in 2002, and we were able to reconnect in a good way before he died. A chapter about him, "Thoughts on Love & Forgiveness" is included in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Divorce & Recovery.

And also, the following is on Page ii of my memoir:


“If it hadn’t been for my father, both literally and figuratively, this memoir would never have been written.”

  1. I hope that lots of lucky and discerning people take up your offer.
    The anniversary of my father's death falls on 24 November. And the 20th was his birthday.

  5. My two copies of this wonderful book have made the rounds of family and friends to the delight of all. Couldn't recommend it more highly. It's a life story full of life lessons, told by a deft and insightful storyteller (not to mention, a funny lady.) If you're on somebody's Christmas list, you will want to point them to this book.
