  3. Re: New books available on Amazon/Kindle but not Nook

  4. Re: Pulitzers Announced: Will Reading the Winners Make You Smarter?

    I agree. The tend to choose 'worthy' books rather than a 'good yarn' (as my mother used to describe an enjoyable story.)

    Re: Plot Driven or Character Driven?

    If I don't care about the characters then I won't care what happens to them, however good the plot. But I prefer family saga type stories to thrillers, and that does make a difference.

    Re: How public are you?

    I once overheard a woman say that her husband wouldn't read books written by a woman. I quick survey revealed that in a few cases this still holds true, so I used a gender neutral Jan. Then I was...

    Have to agree with the escapism. My YA book is a Hardy Boys-type adventure story. I wrote it to appeal to teenagers from 12 yrs up. Teachers were complaining that teenage boys are reluctant readers....

    Re: Indie Authors???

    I think reading samples is a good idea.
    If you have found some good Indie authors have a look at their reviews. If you find a reviewer who felt the same about the book as you did, then have a look...
