Last day for a buck

Today is the last day to get Bucket List* for a buck. I’d give this thing away for free for a week every year (I run a special each year around my birthday) if Amazon would let me (99 cents in the minimum they will allow me to offer) since I know from past experience…

Big thanks

Big thanks to those who have purchased and read my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike, and then taken the time to post these lovely reviews. Here is the latest. 

Latest review

“I read Pattie’s latest book in one sitting, and she has captured the spirit of what a bike can do for one’s body and soul. It’s fun (and easy) to place one’s self on her bike seat as she negotiates her life’s climbs and descents. I chuckled several times, and also found my eyes misting…

In addition to the books I’ve put in Little Free Libraries in metro Atlanta, I’m offering one free book in this…

I grew up near New York City and moved to Atlanta from Manhattan; my older daughter graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and…

Epilogue now available for free

I decided to make the epilogue available for free. The new cover of the book is live on Amazon in all global markets, and the quick-read book is instantly downloadable to any device via the free Kindle app for less than the cost of a movie. I hope something I experienced is helpful somewhere in…
