First time non fiction writer and good friend Liz Moore releases hard copy version

MAKING IT HOME...a novel by Liz Moore

"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step..." Lao Tsu

I read and reviewed Making It Home, immediately upon reading her fantastic journey. Rushing off to, I wrote my glowing review of my friend's book. I had expectations that the writing would be good; afterall, Liz spent part of her adult career as a writer. Knowing the soft spoken Liz, I thought her novel would be demure .. well, was I surprised. Liz has shared a big part of herself that isn't immediately obvious. This polite, gentile woman has let it all out as she chronicles her travels from small town to small town, finding temporary home withing the lives of others; either in individual residences or as part of a quaint, homey Bed and Breakfast in the hills of the West Coast. I wish I could share my entire Amazon review but it is not avilable for this site. Please check out to find more information, helpful reviews and comments. In the meantime, I have a bit more to share about Liz and her great story:

Available now on Amazon. com and Barnes and Noble online, my good friend has just notified friends and family that the hardcopy edition of her delightful book is now ready for our eager hands to hold a real life bound edition of her excellent story.

I met Liz when I moved to SE Kansas almost 5 years ago. An engaging, thoughtful and soft spoken woman, I quickly discovered how much I could learn from Liz's life experiences including her lengthy career in the field of writing as well as being instrumental in altruistic endeavors as represented in her work with The March of Dimes.

Liz is from a small farming community in America's heartland. She attended grade school, middle and high school in the area before venturing off to college and career. Having resided in Washington D.C., Virginia, and Texa while following her career opportunities, Liz was able to sample a wide variety of life and style within these United States. Along with her many and varied "homes away from home," Liz has been a world traveler, having visited such sought after locals as the beautiful Mediterranean coast of Italy and environs, among others. She once shared the story of having seen the play Cats in Europe in a grand theatre with all the accoutrements which make such an experience heightened beyond one's greatest expectation.

Somewhere along the way, Liz came upon the idea of visiting different parts of America, on her own and with no particular time frame except that she hoped to complete her check list of the 'new and untried' within a year's time. Contributing to this amazing decision was the fact that Liz had reached 'middle age,' a time when most are slowing down and making every attempt to create a predictable, secure, routine existence....not Liz!

Her book, Making It Home, is quite an adventure. I downloaded it immediately upon hearing that it was available, initially, only on Kindle...I truly did "devour" each and every word." Here, within the very well written pages of her journey, was a story with which I related in so many ways. Along with the sheer enjoyment of reading such a well told story were many emotions and thoughts including, "I wish I'd done this," "what a beautiful and brave concept," "no wonder everyone loves Liz so," "this crazy woman put herself in some pretty risky places," "how could she possibly have done THAT," and more.

I am very pleased that, today, on my FB page, I discovered that Liz had completed her final edit and the book is now available in local SE Kansas bookstores, online and in some libraries. With demand comes a wider choice of purchase points so, I am officially 'putting out the word!"

Making It Home is a fun, fantastic and fabulous romp through America by one very brave and gutsy lady who had the vision and gumption to get out there and do it!!! This, alone, is worth going out and picking up a copy ASAP! (Lucky me, I've been told by my friend Al that a hardback, autographed copy is waiting for me when I return to SE Kansas!!)

Congratulations, Liz Moore, on a job well done!
