There’s a moment of connection between reader and character—a moment that changes the way the rest of the book is going to feel. It’s the moment you realize that you’d rather stay up all night to find out what happens to them, to make sure they get their happy ending, than get a full night’s sleep.

...it is with a great deal of excitement that I get to let all of our faithful Dog-Eared Readers know that all of our books are now available in digital, directly from our website!

Truth be told I’ve always been a bit of a stickler for print books over their digital counterparts. I like the way physical books feel, the gloss of a cover, the pulpy texture of pages, even the way they smell. But on the other hand I learned one of the distinct advantages to digital format as a teenager who wanted to read well past my bedtime, but who did not want to balance a book in one hand, a flashlight in the other, and a blanket over my head to dim the light shining through the crack under my door. Print books also take up far too much space in my carry-on every time I fly overseas. Meanwhile, I can carry a veritable library inside my iPhone without taking up any extra space.

EPubs also help to provide a slew of accessibility options which, in the past, haven’t always been at the top of the priority list for the publishing industry. But if I love a character, and a story, and how all of it fits together I want everyone to be able to experience the same adventure.

And so, with all of that in mind, it is with a great deal of excitement that I get to let all of our faithful Dog-Eared Readers know that all of our books are now available in digital, directly from our website! None of the adventures are more than a click-download away, and you won’t ever have to worry about picking which one to bring along again—just bring.
