Print or ebooks. What’s your preference?

Charmaine Headshot for Author CentralAs an author, I speak to lots of people. When we talk about preferences in print vs ebooks, they almost always hold up their hands as if they’re reading a book. I’m sure there are a zillion younger folks who laugh and say, Kindle or Nook or I thingy whatever other options rather than purchase a book. Some say they love the smell and feel of a book, the act of turning a page.

Vanilla Heart Publishing, always thinking ahead especially with my series of Mature Romances, has just this very day released Volume 2. To see three of my stories once again, under the umbrella title of The Beginning. . .Not The End warms my heart. Here come blurbs from the three stories. You’re going to love them. Trust me. I’m the author. Shamelessly, I proceed.

No Time for Green Bananas
Celeste Hamlin, seventy-five year old widow, has a goal… conquer the six mountains in the Saranac Lake region before deciding what to do with the rest of her life. Sixty-two year old Professor Paul Harris, meets the dynamic Celeste, and recalls the last words his wife said before she passed. “Find another love and begin again.” Will they begin again?



She Didn’t Say No
Grace didn’t say no to the Big Man On Campus, Scott Dwyer. And then her life changed… Years later, a too-close encounter of an unpleasant kind with a skunk and Scott’s German Shepherd reunites the former lovers. What happens in between are their stories of beginnings and endings and love lost, then found.


Dr. D and the Dad
A trip over a mound of sand on the beach begins a journey for Diane O’Rourke and Tony Flannigan. She’s a pediatrician, a bit over weight; he has a foster care home with three children under his sheltering wing… and a dark secret. Can they overcome the past and make the future work for them? They might just find the initial trip was well worth it.






SMASHWORDS for ALL Ereading Devices


What a great gift for all occasions like Mother’s Day, birthdays, any days. I might just stop by and read a chapter or two for you. I did that for my daughter while on a sleep-over last Friday. We had a lot of fun ’til the dog barked and spoiled it. Labradors don’t enjoy a good book even though all my stories have dogs and cats as integral characters.
