Upcoming Personal and Virtual Appearances

Updated 18 February 2020

Rosanne and fan Chester Cripe. Chet now has 39 of Rosanne's books and plans to collect them all! Rosanne and MI State Representative Pauline Wendzel.

     I always enjoy getting together with my readers! Chester "Chet" Cripe, one of my faithful long-time fans, is a decorated Korean War Veteran. Yes, "real" men really DO enjoy reading my books -- and if you don't believe it, just ask Chet! At my Back-On-The-Rack signing in November, I was also privaleged to meet my MI State Representative, Pauline Wendzel. She is another of my long-time readers, and I hope I can some day say I personally know the Governor of Michigan!


       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.

       Brand new Bittner titles are distributed through Wal-Mart, Barnes & Noble and But locally in Southwest Lower Michigan -- my books are available at Hardings Market and Linda's Antiques in Coloma and Back On the Rack in Watervliet! You'll find my new books there, as well as an assortment of my older titles. I am excited to have such great outlets for my work right here in and near my own hometown. (Plus, Email me and we can get together for a personalized autograph.) You can also check with your local library or book store and ask them to order any of my books you’d like to read.


I would love to travel to give talks and conduct workshops at your clubs, writers' groups and conferences, schools, universities and libraries! Please contact me for details and fee information. (Please note: there is no fee for book signings!)

Also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and my writer's Blog, and join my Discussion Group on Goodreads to exchange ideas with other readers of my books!

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!
