  New Venture


        
   Whew!  I've done it.  I've got back the rights to my earlier books
published by Kensington and have made them available as e-books.
 "The Man for Her" is now up at Amazon.  "Her One and Only" will
follow next week.

   This has been another learning experience for me.  Previously I
self-published a collection of short stories, "The Man Who Loved
Christmas" but in that case I used a pre-made cover.
   This time I worked with Dawn Charles at Bookgraphics to create
entirely new covers for these two books.  I love them.  And what a
sense of power getting to make all those decisions.  With a print book, the
publisher gives you a cover and that's it.  Like it or lump it!

     Both of these books contain a few extras.  There is an historical tidbit about Remittance Men in The Man for Her  and one about crossing rivers in a basket in Her One and Only.  Each book also contains an excerpt from the other.
    I'm thrilled to see these books getting another life in digital form.  I'm very fond of the characters in these stories and was sorry to see them disappear from bookstores.  Now readers around the world have a chance to visit Prospect, British Columbia and come to know Lottie and Sean; Emma and Grey, not to mention the host of supporting characters.
