I am delighted today to host the fourth of five authors I am going to spotlight, promote, and propel over five days as part of the RRBC BT Pay it forward week. Credit for this Pay it Forward idea has to go to Bethany Turner, who is a fellow member of RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB and such a supportive lady. She had the idea of supporting one author per day, and not promoting herself or anyone else at all for that whole day. Well, as RRBC is all about support, this was a huge hit, and we now have our very own RRBC Bethany Turner Pay it Forward Week! For more information, or to sign up for future Pay it Forward weeks, please click HERE. Okay, I’m sure you’re all dying to know who my author of the day is today …
A HUGE warm welcome to Bethany Turner! Bethany is a member of RRBC, as well as a talented author! Bethany is also a volunteer on the Tweet Support Team of RRBC, which means she devotes her time every week to supporting fellow members and authors on Twitter. And, of course, I couldn’t support supportive authors and fellow book club members without giving a day to Bethany, the person who dreamed up the idea of Pay it Forward week in the first place! Even more special, is that Bethany is the newest volunteer on the Governing Board of RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, which means that she is going to be devoting countless hours each week to help ensure that the club’s members have the best book club they can. So, lets all please give Bethany as much support as we can today! 🙂
about the author
With the Abigail Phelps Series, author Bethany Turner had the unique opportunity to bring together in one series of books all of the pop culture places and things with which she has ever been obsessed. We should have known it would come to this…
Her first writing award was in the 2nd grade – at a State-level contest, students were given the assignment of writing about any living person they would choose to have lunch with, and why. While do-gooders all around her chose Reagan, Thatcher, and Gorbachev, Bethany chose John Stamos – yes, Uncle Jesse. Her obsession with pop culture continues more than 25 years later, and Bethany is proud to say that John Stamos ignores her on Twitter and Facebook, even to this very day.
Bethany is a born and bred Kentucky girl who relocated to Colorado in 2001, three years after meeting the love of her life in a chat room – back before anyone knew that wasn’t a good idea. Thankfully, it worked out in this case, and she and her husband are the proud parents of two boys.
Bethany is the author of the ABIGAIL PHELPS series of books … I’ve Loved these Days, Scenes from Highland Falls, and Two Thousand Years, all of which can be found HERE.
“The very first time you met me you knew that he would never be the same again, didn’t you? For the record, I was never the same again either. And while times have changed and opportunities have been lost, I still know in my heart of hearts that I never will be. But we can’t go back, and we can’t undo. What’s more, I don’t really want to. While my life is not perfect, it is uniquely, ridiculously mine, and I would not trade it.”
Abigail Phelps has written her memoirs, but the world has never heard of her. So why should anyone care? Perhaps no one would, if the letter in which Abigail reflects on changing times and lost opportunities weren’t addressed to Jacqueline Onassis, and the man who would never be the same weren’t John F. Kennedy Jr.
Put aside all you think you know and jump into the greatest love story the world has never known.
“I knew that Senator Kennedy would not accept defeat. He would not step aside and allow his horrible error to be a wake-up call. He would not reach out to me and suggest we put our bitter feud behind us. He would try again, for Kennedy men do not give up. They don’t give up on their dreams of the White House, they don’t give up once they decide they want to spend their lives with the woman they love, and they don’t give up until they’ve gotten rid of anything standing in their way.”
The delusions of a woman detached from reality? Or the scandalous, well-kept secrets of the greatest love story the world has never known? In the second installment of the Abigail Phelps Series, Abigail’s stories become even more difficult to believe, and absolutely impossible to deny.

Bethany also offers book reviews: http://www.seebethanywrite.com/see-bethany-review, and her blog can be found HERE, where she hosts many of her fellow authors. Watch out though, because the backdrop is a scene from a high rise tower block! My nervousness of heights always kicks in whenever I visit Bethany’s blog, but the awesome content soon has me calmed! Seriously, I love this backdrop and am secretly a little bit jealous 🙂
In addition to all of this, Bethany is one of the hosts for the brand new RAVE WAVES radio show! You can catch past and present shows HERE.
