Today I'm excited to welcome Karen Metcalf to the blog, she's stopping by to share with us her thoughts on the benefits of an e-reader. She's also offering up copies of her e-book to three lucky commenters, so please check at the bottom of the post for details on the giveaway!
Why I bought an ereader (before my novella was even considered for publication)
When I started querying for a blog tour, I knew I was at a slight disadvantage because I was publishing an ebook. There is still a great deal of people opposed to them. However, there are so many advantages that I think people are missing out on.
To be honest, I’ve read more in the past year than probably any other. And you don’t have to pay the $25 for a hardback, or wait it out for the cheaper paperback version. Books are much, much cheaper. I’ve also gone home to visit in the past, and kicked myself for not bringing enough books, though there was no room in my suitcase, anyway. Now, I have every single book on a device slimmer than a paperback.
I come from a small town. It is a mission to get a new book, so most of the time we just re-read what we had. I convinced my sister to try it out, and she has been converted for life.
I don’t tell you this simply because I have an ebook coming out, I tell you this because I am a reader before I am an author. I know you guys love reading just as much as I do, and I’d hate for you to miss out on some really awesome reads.
Thanks so much for stopping by Karen! For more information on her and her books you can find her here:

IN THE STORM (from Goodreads)
Abandoned by the world around her, Carly believes she is fated to a life of torment at the hands of her stepfather and is desperate for an escape. When she can bear the abuse no longer and gives in to a thunderous rage, she suddenly finds herself in an unfamiliar, yet beautiful, storm world. This limbo between dimensions appears to be her private sanctuary, but it may just be her purgatory.
No one escapes fate without sacrifice, but is the price more than Carly is willing to pay?
