Let's meet her...
K. Dawn Byrd is an author of inspirational fiction. She is an avid blogger who interviews several authors a week on her blog at www.kdawnbyrd.blogspot.com. Most of these authors, give away signed copies of their books there. She's also the moderator of the popular facebook group, Christian Fiction Gathering.
A Christian fiction book came out (Michelle Sutton's Danger at the Door) that I just had to read, but I didn't see it available as a print book. I e-mailed the author and she responded that it was available only in eformat. I kicked it around in my head for a few days and decided that I just had to have that book.
After I figured out how to download the first ebook, I was hooked. I've read ebooks in several formats, but the Kindle is my favorite because of ease of use. I have the Kindle app on my laptop, my netbook, my Eken, and also my Blackberry. I have purchased dozens of ebooks since that first purchase.
Out of all my devices, my favorite way to read E is on my BlackBerry. It's always with me, it's very portable, it's backlit, and I can adjust the font. It's not heavy in my hands like a book or laptop and I never tire of holding it. In addition, I never miss a phone call or an email, that is, if I want to take them.
I absolutely love ebooks. I'm not killing trees, using expensive ink or lugging around heavy objects. Trust me, I know all about this having recently lugged over five hundreds upstairs in my house. And best of all, I can read when I want on my cell phone. Anywhere. Any time. And, I can read in bed with hubby right beside me and don't have to worry about disturbing him with a lamp. The font is adjustable and right now my font is larger and darker than the print in a paperback. It's backlit and easy on the eyes. I can purchase ebooks in seconds and never have to leave the house. I have literally thousands of titles at my fingertips. Also, ebooks are inexpensive and many of them, especially those in the public domain, are free. They're not taking up room in my home and I can read them again if I choose.
I've decided not to fight it and I'm glad I did. After all, how many people fought purchasing a microwave oven? DVD player? Cell phone? An ebook? Progress will continue no matter how hard we try to fight it. I, for one, believe that ebooks are here to stay and I'm loving every minute of it!
Couldn't agree more. I hate change and was moving forward into the eBook movement, kicking and screaming. Now that I got a Kindle for my birthday, I love it and I've been "kindle-fied."
I work full-time in a job that has nothing to do with writing. Writing is how I relax after a long day at work. I also like to take long walks with my husband and Chinese Crested dogs along a lake near our home. When I have time, I enjoy reading.
Love that writing relaxes you. Same for me. Are romance novels your preferred type of book to read for leisure?
I write romance and romantic suspense. My favorite read is romantic suspense.
I love to read romantic suspense also. What is your all-time favorite romantic movie (comedy or drama etc.)?
Titanic. I absolutely loved the romance between Rose and Jack.
Epic movie and great love story. My sister and I have seen that together several times and have cried each time at the end.
Eden Morgan longs for a boyfriend of her own, an impossible goal when her best friend, Lexi Branson, gets all the attention and all the guys. When they fall in love with the same guy, Eden believes she doesn't have a chance. She can only hope that sometimes the good girl gets the guy.
Sounds like a great book and I love the cover. Where can readers find your book online?
