Rick's New Book On Betsy Reed

My nephew just wrote a book about Betsy Reed. Betsy Reed was the first woman ever executed in Illinois. Supposedly she laced her husband's tea with arsenic. The date was 1845, and 20 thousand people came to Lawrenceville, IL. to witness her hanging. To find out more about this woman, go to There you will be told how to purchase this special book, by this very talented writer! Not that I'm partial or anything:)

Hey, since I'm family, do you think I can get an autograph audiobook copy? It must be unabridged! lol

Susie said...

Hey there DN...I checked and they don't have it on audio yet. When they do, I will let you know!
Love ya!

No, I didn't see it on audio either. Ask RK if they are going to put it on audio, or if his publisher knows! Also tell him that I've been promoting his book to my book list and friends! One of the ladies on my book list works at a library. So she'll be helpful too! I also requested our library to buy it! Hey, do you think he will hire me to be his P.R. person? lol After all, I am family! grin
Love You,

Susie said... are doing a great job at promoting his book! I'm sure Rick will greatly appreciate it! Not bad for an amateur PR person! You work cheap too! I asked his Mom about the audio, and she said they don't have it yet. Good job helping out DN, thank you sooo much!
Love you!
