Pamela's Thoughts on the eBook industry and current trends
Much like other areas of fashion and entertainment, there are always industry trends, fads, and hot topics. It is simply the way of life and progress. Since the invention of laptop computers—heck before that to home computers!—the world has become more and more reliant on electronics. Think about it. Our mothers and grandmothers used hand-cranked, wringer washing machines, and now those appliances are digitally programmed. Cars are run with computers in lieu of the old fashioned engine that nearly any guy could take apart, repair and put back together in a single day. Reading is no different. At some point I even believe e-books will replace print books in many areas, especially with our young children so heavily exposed to the digital age. The computer/digital age is here to stay and so is the e-book trend. I adore my Kindle mainly because it is so much easier to carry several books compared to lugging them around in your purse, back-sack or suitcase. That said, I am a print book aficionado. Nothing, and I mean nothing beats curling up in a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine (or chocolate), soft light, and a good book. Well....some things beat that, but not much LOL!
PST: Oh yes! I love a good romance novel – just about any sub-genre of romance (historical, western, suspense), but I’m also a great fan of inspirational/spiritual non-fiction.
I'm a huge fan of romance as well, especially romantic suspense. Are you a true romantic at heart or not really?
Yes, very much so. I believe in romance…flowers or cards for no reason, notes in lunch box or on the pillow. I believe in loving someone with every fiber of your being – when the thought of what you can do to make his/her day special is the foremost thought in one’s mind. I still have the “Love Is” comic strips my husband (now deceased) used to cut out of the newspaper and the rock (no, not a diamond – a rock) he gave me while declaring his love as "like this rock…strong, solid, unchanging and one of a kind."
Love your romantic sentiments and that's such a precious memory to hold in your heart. What is your all-time favorite romantic movie (comedy or drama etc.)?
Pretty Woman. I just love everything about that movie…the humor, the reality, the flawed yet redeemable (and very identifiable) characters and the promise of HEA.
You can check out My Review of The Visionary.
A visionary is someone who sees into the future, Taylor Forrestier sees into the past but only as it pertains to her work. Hailed by her peers as “a visionary with an instinct for beauty and an eye for the unique” Taylor is undoubtedly a brilliant architect and gifted designer. But she and twin brother Trevor, share more than a successful business. The two share a childhood wrought with lies and deceit and the kind of abuse that’s disgustingly prevalent in today’s society. Can the love of God and the awesome healing power of His grace and mercy free the twins from their past and open their hearts to the good plan and the future He has for their lives? Find out in…The Visionary ~ Where the awesome power of God’s love heals the most wounded of souls
Can you share with us an excerpt from The Visionary?
Pam took a deep breath and forced herself to calm down. “I love you, Trevor. Why won’t you talk to me? Tell me what’s wrong.”
“You have no idea what love is.” He hissed through teeth clenched as tightly as the fists by his side. “Most people have no inkling as to what true love is. True love is sticking together when your whole world is falling apart, trusting each other when you can’t depend on another living soul, and being willing to die or kill for each other.”
