This Merry Summertime is now available for sale on several retailers besides Amazon. It joins the nine other books already distributed via Draft2Digital. You can find it listed at B&N, iBooks, Kobo, and more. Click this link to see eleven stores where the book can be found. It will actually be available in more, but some of them have longer publishing times or they don't have easily accessible links because you have to plug into their system to view content.
Library distributors like Overdrive and Bibliotheca are among the outlets that take an additional week or two to publish content, so I'll notify you when MerrySummer hits library ebook shelves. Meanwhile, all of my other books have been library-accessible for over a year. Reading ebooks at the library is really easy. You can check them out just like regular books except you read them on your phone. You return them by clicking a button—or they will return into the system automatically when their time is up. Audiobooks are also available to check out through library systems, if you like audiobooks, along with loads of ebooks. My library uses the Bibliotheca system—many others use Overdrive or a different system. Bibliotheca doesn’t have a browsable website of titles (that I could find anyway), but if your library uses Bibliotheca just log into its app with your library card.
Having my books available in library systems doesn’t mean you can automatically borrow them. The library has to purchase them first. But they are available for the library to buy because I’ve listed them in some of the sites that libraries use to buy books. If you’d like to check out one of my ebooks through the library, you can search for it using your library ebook app and then hit a button that requests for the library to buy it. There’s not a guarantee it will be bought, but libraries often fulfill requests from their patrons, and then you and others can enjoy the book for free through the library.
And there will be more updates.
Pleasant Fiction in an Age of Noise
I write peaceful stories with happy endings. When I started writing, I wanted to write the kind of books I like to read. I wanted them to be upbeat and friendly books that make you feel like you're being whisked off on an adventure with friends. And there's also a purposefulness in that because many stories already written miss out on a great deal of what people experience every day.
