No, you can't drop into a bookstore and pick up a hardbound copy anywhere. I'm sorry but that isn't an option.

Although, you can order a paperback version instead. It would be available in a few days. It simply depends on how quickly the bookstore orders it for you. Or you can order it on Amazon and have them shipped directly to your home or office or to a friend or relative. To find them in Amazon's search field, just put in the author's name to pull up the author page for ebooks and paperbacks:

for my author page or, without going through Amazon.com that way, enter on your search engine's IP bar:

As ebooks, the novels are available just about everywhere. Whatever reader you use, they should be available your way.

No money? There's another alternative. Read for free. Yes, ask your public library to obtain the ebook. I already have a couple in libraries, and they were just made available. I was amazed at not only how fast they were purchased, but also how fast people started "borrowing" them to read. Literally within an hour or so.

Keep in mind that dozens of books are published every hour, so it is easy to get lost in the mix. Searching by my name is the easiest and quickest way to find them.

Happy reading!  If you read my books, please rate them. It helps others in selecting books. I expect honest ratings. I also know that people are individuals with their own likes and dislikes. "You can't please everyone" is a true statement. Don't worry about my feelings.

Say what? 3 more what? Books, of course!

I have 5 novels. There are 3 steps for each novel: Amazon ebook; other ebook; paperback (as print on demand). I've opted out of hardcover standard printing.

All 5 novels have been published as paperbacks. These are NOT available on bookshelves, but print-on-demand via various outlets.

All 5 are available as ebooks on Amazon.com.

So far 2 are available as ebooks on numerous other outlets (and via libraries by request) and I'm working on getting the last 3 ready to go.

Meanwhile, I'm working on novel number 6, a sequel to number 5.

I also have a novella (Hearts Crossing) that needs a second look before I publish it. It is based on my paternal ancestors which in and of itself complicates things. Specific details not being available, it is not a true biography, and the characters are thrown into a location and relationship that never happened in true life, as far as I know. (It would be so fun if it really had happened that way.) Being torn between facts and fiction, I'm leaning toward writing a preface. I wouldn't want someone to assume that it's from an autobiography. There simply isn't a detailed one available! (Each family prepared a very brief sketch of their lives, which I used as a guide.)
