My mom’s birthday is this weekend, and I wanted to give her a copy of my new anthology as part of her gift. The copies I ordered through Sleuth’s Ink Mystery Writers won’t be here until after her birthday, so I ordered a copy from Amazon. It wouldn’t be any fun to make her wait to open part of her birthday present. She deserves her entire gift all at once.
I pre-ordered the ebook version, so I’ve been enjoying this great book for a few days. Even so, holding the physical book in my hands makes my heart race and thrills travel up and down my spine. I’ll admit it; I danced around my house in joy when I opened the package containing the book.
“Lost Sheep” isn’t your typical mystery. I wrote it to be light-hearted and fun. The characters are from my favorite nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Little Bo Peep teams up with Little Red Riding Hood to find Bo’s missing sheep.
I enjoy skipping around when I read an anthology. I also like to go back and check facts given in earlier chapters when I read a novel. That’s a bit of a challenge with an ebook. Of course, I’ve always preferred reading a paper book over reading on a device. I’m old-fashioned that way.
You can’t beat a Kindle, Nook, or tablet when you’re traveling, though. You can start a new book immediately after finishing your last one. This comes in really handy when flights are delayed or rerouted. You can take hundreds of books with you in your carry-on through the magic of ebooks. I speak from experience.
