       For those of you whom I may never have the privilege to meet: you are always welcome to send labels or bookplates to me in a self addressed, stamped envelope. I will sign and return them, and you can put them in your books so you will have autographed copies! My snail-mail address is at the bottom of this page.

       Do you have some of my books in e-reader format? I can now "Authorgraph" my e-books -- which means I can send you personalized digital inscriptions for any of my books offered in e-reader format! Click here for details and available e-books. All you have to do is "Request Authorgraph" and include a message to me to receive a personalized inscription that you can view in your favorite reading apps and devices!

Waving American flag       I have the utmost respect for our veterans of all wars, and for the spouses and families who supported them on the "home front." Our response to threats to our freedom is a wonderful example of how Americans can come together and protect not just this country, but also virtually the whole world. In the past I participated in veteran interviews for the "Lest We Forget" project, wherein thousands of stories were sent to Washington for historical preservation. I am very proud and honored to have had the opportunity to talk to these men, and I have heard some very interesting personal stories - the kind of things you don't read about in the history books about the war.

       For veterans' stories from all around the country, along with suggestions for interviewing and recording interviews of your own, please see the Library of Congress Veteran's History Project website at:

Some of the magnificent scenery from our 50th anniversary trip out West in August 2015

       And after all our trips out West, "America The Beautiful" doesn't seem like a good enough description for the stunning, magnificent landscapes of America's "Big Sky Country!"


       As always, if you can't make it to one of my personal appearances, you can still send me a bookplate or stick-on label to sign. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (or a self-addressed envelope and an international reply coupon if you live outside the United States) and mail to:

Rosanne Bittner
PO Box 1044
Coloma, MI 49038

       If you'd like, you can also send me your book and I'll sign it. Just be sure to include a return label with your name and address clearly written on it, and also return postage!
