Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment. I appreciate all the great info! I put everyone's name on little slips of paper and put them in my mini-coffin. The name I picked is: Jeanette 8042. Send me your contact information and I'll get in touch about which book you'd like.
I'm offering encouragement in the form of a prize for my blog readers' opinions. Since I jumped into the e-book pool in mid-March, 2010 by putting up versions of my two trade paperback vampire novels (THE VAMPIRE SHRINK and DARK HARVEST) and an erotic paranormal novella I regained the rights to (UNDEAD IN THE CITY) on Kindle and Smashwords.com, I've been pleasantly surprised by the excellent results. I have been able to introduce my books to many, many new readers.
Now, I'm thinking about which e-book reading device (or devices) I might want to buy: Kindle? Nook? iPad?
So, I'm hoping you'll give me your thoughts about ebooks and ebook reading devices. Do you like reading books in e-form? Do you own an e-reading device? More than one? What do you like/not like about them? What's your opinion about how popular e-forms of books will be in the future? Do you only read paper books? Would you be upset if the predictions about ebooks becoming more available than paper books were to come true?
I'll give away a copy of either an e-copy or a print copy of one of my books (your choice) to a commenter here. I'll choose a winner (and will post the name on the blog) on Sunday evening, June 13.
This topic can be a heated one, so please keep your comments "polite."
