Amazon reviews for Bad Red Shoes
*****Warm and insightful, March 27, 2015 ~ The poems are written by a very insightful person. It’s her perspective but one that so many of us share, the kind that brings a smile to your lips as you are reading because you can relate. I keep it on my nightstand. ~ Leslie Smith
****Love this book, November 13, 2014 ~ Love this book! It gave me insight into life; my own and just as importantly everyone else’s. After reading this, I felt connected to the human race. Betty opens up and shares her all in a manner that is accessible yet divine. ~ Stephanie Bridges
*****Wonderful, great read, November 6, 2013 ~ This was a touching collection of poems. Betty puts a lot of emotion into her poems. A good read. I could not put it down. ~ Norma Denty
*****Bad Red Shoes, August 3, 2013 ~ Betty Bleen shows a great capacity and compassion about the human condition. I could easily relate to her book. I would definitely recommend it. ~ Peggy J. Edwards
*****A Good Read!, July 4, 2013 ~ Betty always has the perfect word, the perfect metaphor to pull you into her work and have you wanting more. Once you have read just one of the poems in her book, you will be compelled to follow her and see what else she has in store for you. You won’t be disappointed. ~ Milt
*****Great Poetry, November 23, 2011 ~ I finished this book Tuesday night but was to tired to get up and review it. This was a wonderful book of poems. Sensitive and with lots of meaning. The author has a way with words that is hard to describe. ~ KYBunnies
*****Awesome Book, September 3, 2011 ~ This book is great, very well written. Great Job, I’ll recommend this to my friends and family. This is a must have for anyone that enjoys poetry ! ~ Lynda
Reading your stuff is like snugglin’ in Mama’s arms again. I have no doubt you are still doing that in your mind. Some of the poems in your book are like that and everybody should enjoy reading them. Happy birthday AND merry Christmas.
I put your link in my tool bar so I can remember to catch it more often.
This is a nice site. I see you have somewhere where you can post and obviously people can leave messages. That’s what I would want. Thanks for inviting me to come here, S
