Things I'm Thankful For: Part 4

New technologies. Okay, I love the smell and feel of a real book. I love turning the pages and getting lost in an unfolding story. I love fun, sexy, clever cover art and intriguing back cover copy. The whole experience works for me, in a big way.

A lot of those things may be missing from e-reads, but they make up for it with convenience and instant gratification. Never underestimate the pleasure of sitting in your own cozy house, browing through online titles, deciding what you want and getting it immediately. I don't have a Kindle or anything, although I'm hovering on the precipice--currently most of my story downloads are handled through Adobe Acrobat. And I download plenty! All those stories you hear about how well the m/m fiction is doing at Ellora's Cave and Samhain? Yeah, that's all me.

Even more exciting, however, is the chance to download a brand new Bullet Catcher novella by bestselling author Roxanne St. Claire! One click of a button and you can be engrossed in a fast-paced story of heart-pounding suspense and sizzling passion. Just go to Roxanne's website and hit the link in the upper right hand corner. One note of caution: E-reads are dangerously addictive!


I'm hoping to win a Kindle in the Samhain contest. I feel like the force is with me.

Call me old fashioned, but I think that I will always be partial to tangible books. For instance, I sat in bed all day Saturday reading a great romance novel, "The Silent Note," by Patrick Davis. I don't know how I could have done this comfortably sitting in front of a computer- doesn't sound as relaxing to me.

You know I've never done this. You make it sound so intriguing. I really want a Kindle although I love a book. The feel the smell. Heaven.
