Books & Writers & Blogs & Friends

Before I let another day go by without acknowledging something important......

There are many of you who have cheered me on during this long road to publication, (and I'm still not there yet!) and have also said you want to buy my memoir when it's "out." I appreciate every one of you! 

And there are many of you who have already published a book, or two, or more, that I have not purchased. I want you to know the only reason I haven't done so is a lack of funds for any "extras." But I've been saving my pennies (just kidding!) I know I'll be able to buy at least one book a month, beginning very soon. 

SO, if you're one of my published writer friends, please leave a comment or e-mail me the title(s) so I can put your book on my list of Books to Buy

  1. Love your generosity. And I will MOST DEFINITELY be buying your book. Sooner rather than later I hope. If times are tough, the cats will have to eat no name food...

    1. Hi EC! I certainly hope it's sooner than later, too. But the most important thing, obviously, is that it's the best it can be when it finally arrives!

  2. Hi Becky....I can identify with the "lack of pennies" situation. Well, little drops fill the bucket, so, drop by drop, we can save up for a rainy day "book" fund! Susan

    1. Hey Stephen T! I rec'd an e-mail saying “I would say that you will hear back in the next several weeks, depending on the schedule of those in the office.”
      Ahhh....the virtue of patience!

  4. Becky you must let us know when you are ready to publish and we so will buy and read. Yes we have books but no worries. You concentrate on getting yours sorted. Looking forward to it. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. Thanks, Julie! I know I will. It's really cool to read a book written by a friend or acquaintance!

  8. Aw, thanks. But you don't need to buy my books. You can sure check them out though, on the right-hand side bar of my blog.

    1. Hi Sue! I AM going to buy one of your books! I'll let you know when, because I haven't started my list yet!

  9. That's very generous of you, Becky, and if I had a book, I'd take you up on the offer:)

    Hoping WIP#1 will become a book one day soon... I'll keep you in the loop, and please do likewise :)

    1. Hi Mark! Thanks so much. I'm sure your WIP#1 will definitely be published, too! I can tell you're a very dedicated guy, in your writing and in your family!

  10. I, too, always want to buy many books, but the budget doesn't allow for that. Seems I'm always waiting for the credit card to change!

    I'm working on my life story, but it's not something I expect to publish for the masses, only for my family. It may seem crazy for a non-famous person such as I to write my life story, but as I've been doing my family's history, I have wished to find a journal or autobiography written by one of my ancestors. I assume future generations will feel the same about me.

    I look forward to the day when I hear you are holding your published book in your hands.

    1. Hi Patti! I think it's really cool that you've been working on your story. Digging into ancestors can be a lot of work, but SO interesting!! And thank you so much for your very sweet last sentence! Hugs..

  11. This is very sweet, Becky but you don't have to buy my book. I enjoy cheering you on and will enjoy it even more once your baby is out in the world. :)

    Take care and enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hey Julie! You're such a sweetheart! And I WILL buy your book!! So there! :)

  12. I'll make you a deal. I'll buy your book when it's done and you can buy my book when it's done. I'm guessing that you'll get done before me and have tons of royalties to buy mine with!

    1. Oh, Debora! You're a sweetheart, too! In fact, I'm so blessed to have so many kind and encouraging friends! :)

  13. Becky,
    Well, I'm not one of those authors you're speaking to but I'm commenting just the same. I'm looking forward to your book! Just let me know when it comes out! Some day I hope to get around to writing a book myself.
    Some day...

    1. Hi Sandy! Thank you! I don't know what I ever did to deserve such wonderful people in my life! And I hope you will write your book someday, too!

  14. I wish I could purchase all of the books I love to read. I am afraid I have to rely on our wonderful library to keep me supplied. Hugs,

    1. Hi Laura! Oh, I am the same way. That's why I have to spread out my purchases! I've read many more books from the library than I've bought. Thank you for stopping and commenting. You're a sweetie and hugs back to you!

  15. Best wishes that your book gets published soon! I would love to read it - I so enjoy your writing. And I know all about saving pennies - what a bummer!

I'm sorry, but I have to change my comment moderation, due to some strange and offensive comments that were left overnight.
