Saying Goodbye...continued

Welcome friends!
 I'm not really saying Goodbye ...
Here on my blog I'm actually saying
HELLO!

Below are the last two questions that
Annie (rubyslipperz) asked me in her interview about
 my book..."Saying Goodbye"

click on the link above
 to read the first part of the interview

After the questions below...you'll find something..
Yep...it's a SPECIAL something!
It's a
GIVEAWAY!


me: How did you find a publisher?...editor, illustrations…cover artwork?
Billie Jo - The cover was created by a neighbor Mr. Murray who listened to my thoughts and then showed me the results. I was thrilled! I love that hunk on the cover… who wouldn’t ? I believe that having a great editor was the thread that bound my words into a book. We laughed and cried and complained and then at the end of the day we would say good job to each other

Me: What is the thing that you like most about writing this book and having it in the marketplace?
Billie Jo - Writing this book has ended a chapter in life that needed to be closed and shared.  I have so many women who have read the book commenting that it should be a movie.. Hey.. Another dream !  The reviews I have received have touched my heart  and brought tears to my eyes.  So many ladies have a story and I so badly wanted to share mine.



The Giveaway...



It's a free autographed copy of my book!

  1. Not a dream to "create", but a dream to "do" something. Even though I'm 58 years old, I've had a dream for a long time to be a flight attendant. I recently attended a hiring session with well over 300 applicants and didn't even make it through the first round to the interview session. I heard they're coming back in December, and I'm going to try again. Wish me luck!

    And I'd LOVE to have a copy of your book. Can't wait to get it in my hands!

  2. My dream to create is to learn how to long arm quilt. I would love to be able to help other quilters finish their quilts.

  3. I just came over from Annie's blog. My dream is to one day have a craft room all to myself where I can make as big a mess as I would like :)
    I'm going to have to look for a copy of your book if I don't win it!

  5. Visiting from Annie's blog. Yes I think we all have dreams that are tucked inside our hearts. I always had a dream of owning a quilt shop but in today's economy I don't think that would ever happen :-(

  8. My dream is to expand on my quilting journey and someday be a long arm quilter that can feel good about stitching on other quilter's master pieces! I've got the long arm machine but only work on my own quilts.....it's a dream and I hope someday it will come true. I'm also dreaming for days with 36 hours....and that is not about to happen. I haven't read a book in a long time but you have caught my interest and would really like to read this one. My DDIL is an avid reader and I know she would luv this one. She loves true life books. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. Came over from Annie's blog and I would love to do a lot of things. I'm learning to quilt right now, which is fulfilling one dream of loving to work with fabric. I love reading and am now interested in your book! :)

  10. I don't have any big dreams for myself, but I do for my children. Basically for them to both have healthy, happy, God-loving partners in life to grow old with.

    Me....I'm like the rest of the quilters and want a longarm....grin.

  11. I dream of being more adventurous - going on a long canoe trip with a few other women in the wilderness, staying by myself for a couple of months in a log cabin in the bush, or something along those lines. Perhaps one day I will stop working and be able to treat myself to an adventure. I'd love to read your book.
