It's predicted that this holiday season will be the biggest yet for the new handlheld reading devices, making it even easier for avid readers to get the books they want, faster without the long lines and crowded parking lots! Kindle, Nook, Sony, Koob---and iPad, itunes, Smashwords---all have heard the clamor from consumers and answered the call.  And now publishers--large and small, new and traditional--have embraced this new way to get books into the hands of readers!

E-Publishing has come a long way  in thie last decade, making it impossible to ignore that eletronic publishing has a valid place in the publishing industry. Many small press and larger press now offer theor books in print as well as various downloadable formats, and authors-new & seasoned-- are partaking in this ground-breaking wave of reading.


30 DAYS OF DECADENCE   Books, gifts, fun and more await readers starting today--Black Friday!!

I am happy to launch the start of the 30 DAYS OF DECADENCE with my victorian-set historical holiday romance, a CHRISTMAS PROMISE;

Widowed Irishman, Brady McCormick made a promise to his young wife the day she died--to bring their son to America and begin a new life in the land of opportunity.Living in charity with a distant uncle in New York, barely scraping by, Brady is unsure he will be able to uphold the promise, much less quell the loneliness, until an angel appears at the docks, Saran Reichardt.

Headstrong and tenacious, gentlewoman Saran knows she's unlike most women of society. Dedicated to teaching and helping the impoverished, she has no need of a man to take care of her, but an accidental encounter with a stormy-eyed Irish immigrant and his young son changes her perception of what need really is. Will this holiday give them both the hope and faith they desire or will their own stubbornness keep them apart
