Great News!

I am so pleased to announce that, so far, Evergreen is going to be published in France and Norway! I am particularly excited to dust off my college textbooks and test my French out!  Thank you, Mercure de France and Pantagruel.

“Life and death- what paltry words, what tarnished bookends,what unjust summation for drawing breath one moment and failing to release it the next.”
Rebecca Rasmussen, The Bird Sisters

“This book I'm reading says if you want to be as thin as a stalk of celery, then that's what you should be eating. I'm not sure I want to look like celery, but I know I don't want to look like a biscuit.”
Rebecca Rasmussen, The Bird Sisters

“Once a bird had lost his ability to fly, not much else could be done in the way of mending him. Losing a wing was a little like losing a leg and the freedom of movement, of spirit, it granted you; most people could live without the former but not the latter.”
Rebecca Rasmussen, The Bird Sisters

“These are the days when birds come back, a very few, a Bird or two, to take a backward look.”
Emily Dickinson

“Life and death- what paltry words, what tarnished bookends,what unjust summation for drawing breath one moment and failing to release it the next.”
Rebecca Rasmussen, The Bird Sisters

“This book I'm reading says if you want to be as thin as a stalk of celery, then that's what you should be eating. I'm not sure I want to look like celery, but I know I don't want to look like a biscuit.”

Beth Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for befriending this mystery author on Goodreads! Looks like we're both going to have a release about the same time--my Deadly Currents book comes out in March, 2011. I hope you'll put my existing books, A Real Basket Case and To Hell in a Handbasket, on your to-read list. If you'd like to enter a contest for a free copy of To Hell in a Handbasket, sign up for my email newsletter at: http://bethgroundwater.com/ .
