A writer inspired by nature and human nature


True-to-life Americana

DOG BONE SOUP by Bette A. Stevens– ONLY 99c / 99p from March 29th through April 4th

 

“…adventures and misadventures to the likes of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry

“As with all great literature, it is underscored with life lessons particularly memorable to this [Baby Boomer] generation…”

“DOG BONE SOUP is a fascinating literary study of poverty and family dysfunction in the 1950s  & 1960s. It is written in a fast-flowing, entertaining style that kept me turning pages, one after another.

“Despite the odds stacked against them, two brothers—Shawn Daniels and Willie—manage to survive, escaping the rants of a drunken abusive father and the hardships of rural life, cutting out on daily adventures and misadventures to the likes of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry. DOG BONE SOUP is about making the best of what you have. It’s a story about survival, struggle, and the human spirit—rising above it all. As with all great literature, it is underscored with life lessons particularly memorable to this generation…” –Frank Scozzari, author

  12. Just bought your “Dog Bone Soup.” Bette, I’m so impressed with the number of top-notch reviews on Amazon. Still struggling with getting reviews for my memoir.

    Impressive, Bette. Write on! 🙂

    • Thanks so much, dear Marian! ❤ I hope your reading of Dog Bone Soup lives up to the reviews. Reviews came slowly, beginning by my giving away (gifting) copies to a few readers at a time. Now I generally run 99 Cent promo 2 or 3 times a year and post reviews and short excerpts on my blog occasionally to pique interest of readers. Also, I'm a 6 year member of Rave Reviews Book Club #RRBC and receive great support there. Keep getting the word out on your memoir! xo

  19. Thank you for sharing!.. I haven’t finished the book as of yet, but the children remind me a great deal of my brother and I while growing up on a small farm here on the prairies in the 1940’s and ’50’s… 🙂

    Hope all is well with you and family and until we meet again..
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    May the sun shine all day long
    Everything go right, nothing go wrong
    May those you love bring love back to you
    And may all the wishes you wish come true
    (Irish Saying)
