Sometimes you want to read a story, but you don’t feel like reading. You don’t feel like TV. so what do you do?

Listen to a book from Audible!

I’ve been listening to some books here lately while I drive or when I’m just restless at night and can’t sleep. In the car, it gives me something to listen to besides the sound of the engine and the rough roads around here. At night, the soothing voice helps me relax into the story so I can sleep.

Don’t know what to listen to?

The first two books from my Esperance series are available from Audible, as well as my autobiographical book concerning my bout with breast cancer--Cancer and the Warrior’s Way.

Looking for something to read instead? You can find all of my books on sale at Smashwords through April 20 in the Authors Give Back sale as well as many others.

Don’t worry if the covers here don’t match Audible. I’m still working on getting the new covers uploaded…

So whether you want to listen or read, we have you covered. Go check it out and stay safe!

Who is Morgan?

She appeared for the first time in Jareth, First Lord, as one of the girls brought back from Clan Belfort. As the series progressed, I became intrigued by her story and decided to see where she’d come from and what Clan Brannach held in store for her.

She’d had a hard life before she moved to Clan Brannach and after she arrived, she was assaulted while making deliveries for her boss. She escaped being raped only because of two young men who came to her rescue.

Sure she’ll never find a happily-ever-after, she’s given up trying.

Until she meets James, who has also given up on love. But when he first sees Morgan, muddy, battered, and bloody though she was, it was love at first sight.

But his family has secrets of its own, which has scared off most of the women in his life. One woman he was dating took off running and was nearly trampled to death in the street when he gave her a glimpse of his Talent.

Can he win Morgan’s heart? And can she accept his unique gift as well?

MORGANThe Pixie and the Green Man–Esperance Book 3

Excerpt:

“Jamie, you’re up early this morning,” his dad called out as he strode down the path. “Got plans with a dark-haired pixie?”

“Sort of. Can I talk to you for a minute?”

Leaning on the rail fence in front of his parents’ house, he told his father what had happened the previous evening.

“I don’t see how you could have done differently, son,” his father said. “If you’re serious about her, she’ll have to know sooner or later.”

“But how can I know when to bring it up? I thought Gwen…”

“Don’t look back, James,” his father said seriously. “I was never sure about Gwen. I know you loved her and hoped things would work out, but that is all in the past.”

“I’m trying to look forward, Dad. But I couldn’t live with myself if I chased Morgan away.”

“Where are you going today?” his father asked.

“For a hike up the stream. It’s a nice warm day and it should be beautiful.”

“The stream isn’t far from the forest. Take her over and introduce her. See what the forest has to say.”

Black and whiteWhy must we be judgmental?

Every day on one social media site or the other, someone has posted something against eBooks, as if eBooks aren’t as good as print books, or that people who read eBooks aren’t really readers.

But what is the importance of a book? Is it how many of them you have on the shelf, or that you love to turn the pages and  smell the fresh ink or the decades of old dust?

Or is the importance the information or the story?

I am old-fashioned, I know. I love the feel of a book in my hands, as I turn the pages to reveal the unfolding plot of a good mystery. I seldom buy a print book that I don’t keep. Some of the books on my shelves I’ve had for 20+ years.

But when I travel, my e-Reader goes with me.

Why? So I can take my collection of favorites or new books I might want to read. How many books can I afford to take on a plane these days? And how long will one or two books last on a month-long trip to Europe or the Middle East?

To me, the importance of books and reading is the information or entertainment contained within, not what form it takes. As a writer, I’m more interested in whether people buy what I write, not which version they buy.

Who knows? Maybe they bought the eBook because they’ve never read my work before. The eBook is cheaper, so they won’t feel cheated if they decide my writing is not for them. And that’s fine. I would rather they buy the eBook and at least sample what I have to offer. Maybe next time they’ll buy the print version.

Don’t knock eBooks simply because you will never read one. Don’t belittle people who choose to buy them. You have no idea why they’ve made the choice.

As long as someone is reading, it’s all good. Scrolls, print, eBooks, they have all been used to impart information or entertain us with good stories. Let’s not quibble over form.

Happy reading everyone!
