It Had To Be Christmas Again
by Betty Jo Tucker

Good news! CAKE: A Love Story, the movie based on It Had To Be Us -- a romantic memoir my husband and I wrote under the pen names of Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence – has won First Place in the Short Film Category at the 2017 NSAEN Online Film Festival. That’s why our Movie Addict Headquarters On Demand feature for November 20 through November 26 is an encore episode with George Bettinger and Lizette Amado-Bettinger reading the first chapter of our award-winning E-book, which Misha Zubarev and V. Ulea transferred to the screen so creatively. The film stars Debra Lord Cooke, Richard Vernon, Nancy Lombardo and George Bettinger.  

Listeners can hear this show at any time during the week by clicking the BlogTalkRadio link at the end of this article.  

Showbiz stars  George and Lizette play co-authors Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence in this audio version of Chapter One, which deals with two important Christmases for the estranged Lawrences. How does Christmas help bring these two together after being divorced for almost twenty years? Listen in and find out! Also, I give an update of the filming progress up through November, 2016. 

The Bettingers are a fun couple with a passion for bringing back the Golden Era of radio on their popular “Mom & Pop Shop Show” which airs on Tune In Radio in Florida each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. George is an actor, comedian, producer, writer and director. He’s won acclaim for his uncanny impressions including Groucho Marx, George Burns and the Three Stooges but may be best known as the voice of the red M&M. Lizette is a versatile actress and soprano singer with experience at the Metropolitan Opera. George and Lizette are truly Mr. & Mrs. Showbiz.

IT HAD TO BE US won first place in the Ebook category at the Hollywood Book Festival for its potential to be transferred to other mediums such as film, radio and TV. With the help of BlogTalkRadio listeners during the launch of the Kindle version a few years ago, the memoir hit Number One in the “Divorce” category for Kindle Ebooks.  

Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence donate their author royalties from IT HAD TO BE US to the IMAGINATION LIBRARY, a children’s literacy program sponsored by the Dollywood Foundation.
