Years ago I'd give talks about e-publishing and only a few people really were interested.
I'd also speak up at conferences and mention e-books were definitely in our future. I was poo-poohed, sometimes insulted, and heard things like "but I want to smell the paper and be able to turn the pages." (And I still hear that at times.)
One fellow author got down right angry with me and told me I ought to keep my mouth shut because nothing like that was ever going to take off. I haven't as yet checked to see if her books are on Kindle, but I bet they are.
At this time I already had several books published electronically. At first, of course, the computer was the only way they could be read. Then came the Rocket ebook, which was easy to use, easy to download books to, and great to read on. The back lighting made it easy to read in bed and if you fell asleep it turned off automatically. Sony came along and bought them out and it was years before they came out with their own e-reader which wasn't nearly as good or easy to use as the old Rocket.
By this time of course, everyone was talking about e-books, then along came the Kindle and opinions began to change. Oh, I've still heard people talk about the smell of a book--but frankly, I don't care what a book smells like. I do still read the kind of books where you turn the pages the old-fashioned way, in fact I have quite a TBR pile--and not in just one place. I also have a TBR list on my Kindle. I've read lots of books on Kindle and love to read that way. Because I haven't paid a whole lot for any of the books on Kindle, if I don't like a book I don't feel the least bit bad about not finishing ti.
What I like best about the Kindle is I can take enough books on a trip without weighing down my suitcase. What I don't like about it is it's not back lit, so you do need enough light to read on a plane or in bed.
And, yes, most of my books are on Kindle and the Nook. Earlier books in my Rocky Bluff P.D. crime series (written as F.M.Meredith) that are no longer in print can be found on Kindle.
Final Respects is the first one in the series.
I loved writing this book and at the time had no idea this would end up a series. If you're one of those people who likes to start at the beginning of a series, you might try this one.
And to wrap this up, I'd like to run into all those folks who gave me such a hard time years ago and say, "I told you so" or even more satisfying, "Nyay, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah."
