Just add coffee..and sigh! I'm happy to share that I finally managed to upload a full-color version of my second book, "Heck on Heels," to Amazon's Kindle Store, where I've priced it at $2.99. The paperback sells for $14.95. Here's the link to check out a free preview, some reviews, and a description: http://www.amazon.com/Heck-Heels-Balancing-Chocolate-ebook/dp/B007T15AYY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1334617527&sr=8-2
This is my second essay collection, which originally came out in paperback in 2009. It's the only one of my three books that contain nature photographs, and on the printed page with only black and white to work with, the pictures were good...but relatively small and therefore underwhelming. Still, the book managed to earn an Indie Excellence Award and make ForeWord Review's list of finalists in the magazine's "Book of the Year Awards."
Now, with advent of color e-readers and folks being able to download e-books to their iPads, the time seemed right to reissue the book, but this time with full-sized photos, and quite a few more of them, and in color to boot. I'm aiming for a "portable serenity zone" here. In other words, with a good cup of coffee (which for me adds chocolate and whipped cream) and these photos and essays, you've got a serene place to escape to...even if you're sitting on a city bus. Please check it out! Like it on Facebook, Tweet it on Twitter, tell your friends who own Kindles and iPods!
