I just got done reading your book. And let me tell you I loved the book. As I was reading it made me thankful for a great hubby and wonderful boys. Thank you for writing the book.
Hi Claudine. I’m so glad you connected with No More Wasted Time! I still cry when I thumb through it. 😉 Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Happy reading, Beverly Preston
Hi Beverly I really enjoyed my reading, you gave me the book on Sunday at the art fair and I just finished it. I can’t wait for the second one. Thank you it was very nice to meet you.
Hi Elia. It was wonderful to meet you Sunday at Art in the Park. What a crazy weekend! I’m glad you enjoyed it. Watch for book two in the series early 2013. 🙂
Happy reading, Beverly Preston
What are the chances of getting this through Barnes & Noble for the Nook?
Hi Amy. First off I apologize for taking so long to get back with you. My husband has been in the hospital for 4 weeks and wound up having open heart. Thankfully all is well and today is his first day home.
Unfortunately, I might not be on B&N for some time. Amazon gives indie authors an amazing opportunity to gain exposure and readership, but it also means that I’m exclusive with Amazon. The good news is that you can download the Kindle app for free on most e-readers including your PC or laptop. No More Wasted Time is also available in paperback.
Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays. 🙂
I just got done reading No More Wasted Time and I have to say I loved it. I immediately came to your website to see if you had written any other books. I am pleased that you are going to continue on with the characters. I love Tom and Tess’ story and look forward to learning more about the others. I have to say I was very pleased with the amount of passion between Tom and Tess. This book reads a whole lot better than most romances I have read. There never seems to be enough passion in most books. They always leave you wishing there was more, but not with your book. I was thoroughly amused that Tom and Tess couldn’t keep themselves apart for very long. I think me and my husband need to take a trip to Bora Bora, LOL. Thanks for such a wonderful story and I will be keeping an eye for the next one.
Thank you, Brandi! All of your favorite characters will make appearances throughout the series. Shayla’s Story is next and be prepared for a smoldering read!
Happy reading, Beverly
Just finished reading 🙂 what an incredible read!! My heart was touched by the story. Excited for the next. xx (love from Australia!)
Good morning all the way from Las Vegas! I’m so glad you enjoyed NMWT. See you on Facebook. 🙂
Happy reading, Beverly
This was such a great read. I couldn’t stop. I cried and laughed. Very touching. It’s so nice when true love can be found again. Cannot wait for the next one. A definite must tell to all my friends. Thanks for a great read.
I’m glad you enjoyed, Lori! 😉 Thanks so much for telling your friends! I can always use great reviews on Amazon, if you’d like to drop by and post one. Happy New Year and happy reading, Beverly
Great Read! I lost my husband after 35 years of marriage and appreciated the true raw feelings of Tess. Can’t wait for your next book! 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. Shayla’s Story is coming this spring. Please feel free to follow me on Facebook! 🙂
Thanks for sharing ❤ Beverly
I read A LOT. Not very often I come across a story that touches me in such a way that I know I will always remember the characters and how much I loved it. NMWT is definitely one of those books.
I am a little confused though…is Shayla’s story coming out this month or in the spring? (Please please say this month)
Hi Wendy! I’m so glad you are falling in love with the Mathews/Clemmins Family! All of your favorite characters weave throughout the series.
Shayla’s Story will be out this spring and I promise it will be worth the wait. 🙂
Obviously, I’m a big believer in the motto Everything happens for a reason…it’s the backbone for the entire series. You might already know from my bio that I wrote NMWT after having a horrible nightmare that my husband died and I was on a boat in Bora Bora. Well…as we speak my husband is recovering from open heart surgery. He had a valve replacement and an aorta aneurysm a few days after turning 50. We are very lucky!
That being said, I had to blow dust off my laptop. I didn’t touch it for 3 months and I’m just now getting back to my writing. I’m diving in and shooting for the end of April! You’ll be happy to know that the 4th book in the series, The Perfect Someday is already written and waiting patiently on my desk to be released in order! The entire series should be out by this time next year!
I plan on sending out an email update soon, but until then please take a peek at my Coming Soon page to see a pre-cover of Shayla’s Story! And last but not least, you can always follow me on Facebook.
Thanks for your patience and Happy New Year! 😉

Lost my husband 6 years ago,, my soul mate, reading this gives hope that you can still find love. Being alone without love is not a happy place to be. Not a place i want to live my life out… thanks.
I’m so sorry for your loss, Rose. I never expected my book to touch so many women who have been through the loss of their partner, but the messages I’ve received have truly touched me. I believe there is always hope. – Beverly ❤

Pingback: Review: No More Wasted Time | The Smutty Kitty
I loved this first book. There’s really no need for the bad language though. It wonderfully written, and therefore needs no further embellishments. Please remember this while writing your next installment. It will be a deciding factor in my buying purchases in the future.
Thanks very much!
I’m so glad you loved No More Wasted Time. As far as the “embellishments” go, they will be added depending on the personality traits of each character. Shayla and Tracy don’t use very much profanity as where JC swears a bit more often. Lisa Levi weaves throughout the series and she does have a bit of a potty mouth, but again, it is part of her character. As a writer, I never intend to offend anyone, so hopefully you can see past the few swear words and fall in love with The Family.
Thanks much – Beverly
