    Just finished your book and loved it! Thanks so much for your great story and looking forward to the next…have shared my opinion of this great book with friends and co-workers..still need to book my trip to bora bora. P.s. I actually cried in the beginning..loved that Tess was in her 40s and had a great marriage..I could relate

    • Thank you, Julie! I’m luck to say that I’ve been happily married for almost twenty years, but I had to go through hell to find my heaven. I think most authors add a bit of themselves to their writing…I know I do. I’m glad you enjoyed and I appreciate the referrals! πŸ˜‰ As for Bora Bora…GO! It’s amazing!
      Happy reading,

I’m going to jump in and get my feet wet with blogging, so be sure to follow along. You can expect a few smokin’ hot excerpts, great author interviews and of course signed paperback giveaways!

      Hi. Loved’loved’loved no more wasted time. Just one thing. Says book 2 due out Jan 2013 and I can’t find it. Its march 2013. Help please πŸ™‚ !!!!!!

      • Hi Glenna! I’m so happy you loved NMWT. πŸ™‚ I must apologize, I’m a bit behind on book #2. My perfectly healthy husband turned 50 in Oct and wound up having the mother of all open-heart surgeries. He is now the proud owner of a new valve and aorta. Life is just now beginning to get back to normal, but I didn’t touch my laptop for nearly 4 months. So…Shayla’s Story is coming and I promise it will be worth the wait!!! I’m shooting for May/June. The good news is book #4 is completely finished and #3 has already been outlined, so the wait between books will not be nearly as long.
        I’ll be giving away a few signed paperbacks with the cover release of Shayla’s Story, so be sure to follow my blog. Or you can follow me on Facebook too.
        Thanks for your patience. πŸ™‚ Beverly

  9. Lauren

    I starting reading your book this afternoon and could not put it down. I just finished it. It is the perfect combination of love and romance in a fast moving storyline. Looking forward to the next book!

  10. Maura

    I loved No More Wasted Time! I cannot believe this is your first novel and that you are self published! The flow was seemless, the pace was consistent, the characters stayed true, I finished the book in 2 sittings and have spent a good part o fmy day thinking about the new friends I made, Tess, Tom, Lisa (I loved her spirit), and Tess’ children. I was surprised to hear Shayla’s story is next . I would have guessed John. Looking forward to your next novel . I posted reviews on amazon, goodreads and the bookclub i belong to on facebook

    • Hi Wendy. I’m thrilled to hear you loved NMWT! You’ll be happy to know that the entire series of four will be out by this time next year.

    Just wanted to say I loved NMWT!! Now I want to go to Bora Bora and Greece!!! Thanks for a wonderful story. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Was hoping for a book about Shayla. I can so see her and a certain other character hooking up… Maybe.. πŸ˜‰

  15. patti johnson

    So enjoyed your book…lost my husband after 35 years of marriage and was heartened by the raw but true emotions of Tess…thank you….PJ

    • Hi PJ. I wrote NMWT after having a dream I’d lost my husband. I’m so sorry for your loss and can’t imagine what you’ve gone through. Richards memory will play a positive roll throughout the series.
      Thanks for sharing,

  16. Nikki

    Just finished your book in less than 4 hours. Could not put it down. I cried with Tess every time. I have to say Tom has a lot of energy for a 49 year old guy and wow Tess too, I am 41 I hope to be as active at 44 like her, if you get my drift. Lol. I guess it does get better after 40!
    My only wish is that a miracle baby would have happened! Your way was more realistic.
    Can’t wait for next book!

    • Wow you are a fast reader! I’m so happy you loved NMWT! I just read and tweeted the review you posted on Amazon! Thanks for that! πŸ˜‰ Watch for Shayla’s Story this spring and the entire Mathews/Clemmins Family series will be out by this time next year!
      Happy reading, Beverly
      PS Forties…ROCK!!! πŸ˜‰

    I just finished reading No more wasted time. I started it this morning snd I just couldn’t put it down!! I loved the way the romance between Tom and Tess played out and i hope to see more of them in future books. Their story pulled me in from the first page and brought me to tears so many times…but what a fantastic love story!!! I’m really looking forward Shayla’s story and can’t wait to see whet happens with the rest of the Mathews / Clemmins family.

    • Hi Susan! I’m not sure how your post slipped past me until now!

  25. Catherine De La Cruz

    Hi Beverly I just finished No More Wasted Time and am about to start Shayla’s Story. It was a great love story and I fell in love with Tom, Tess and her family. I also loved Lisa and Benny and wanted to ask if you were planning on writing a prequel or novella of their love story, I’m very curious and would love to read about how they met and fell in love!

    • Catherine De La Cruz…grab your wine glass because we are going to Tuscany in book three! πŸ˜‰ Lisa Levi is one of my favorite characters. You’ll see a lot more of Benny and Lisa this winter! – Beverly πŸ˜‰
