    I can’t seem to enter a comment in the contest entry above, but I wanted to say how great I think it is that we indies can get together to set standards and improve the field for our reading public. Everyone wins that way.

    Really, really need an Ereader. :)

    • Christina Jean Michaels August 27, 2013, 10:36 pm

      Ebooks didn’t appeal to me until I started reading on my phone. Then I was a goner and had to buy a tablet! If you have a smartphone, you can download the Kindle or Nook app. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Karen S. Bell August 28, 2013, 5:35 am

      Hope you win. Lots of great books to read on it! Thanks for your support of this site.

    • Massimo Marino August 28, 2013, 5:56 am

      LJM, you can install the Kindle application on both a Mac and a PC.

      Thanks for passing by.

  • Valeria August 25, 2013, 5:46 pm

    Excellent Opening Party!! Love the freebies!

  • Mary Eichman August 25, 2013, 6:27 pm

    Love freebies! I have been an ebook snob since getting my kindle in ’08. I was one of those skeptical “o noes, I will miss holding a book, smelling a book” etc and so on, but let me tell you: I have only read two (TWO!) “book” books in the last five years, and hated every second of it. eBooks forever!

    • martinthewriter August 27, 2013, 10:34 pm

      Thanks Mary, and I agree. I love my Kindle. We really appreciate your support!

    • Christina Jean Michaels August 27, 2013, 10:37 pm

      You sound exactly like me. It took me forever to see what all the fuss was about with ebooks. Now I can’t imagine reading anything else.

  • Cissy Dutton-Tuggle August 25, 2013, 7:37 pm

    • Tahlia Newland August 26, 2013, 5:26 pm

      We can train you, Cissy, if you read a lot and can recognise the difference between a book that meets the same standards as a traditionally published book and one that doesn’t, then with a bit of training, you can join our readers team.

    • Massimo Marino August 28, 2013, 5:59 am

      Thank you, Cissy. Here you’ll find authors who cherish their relationship with readers, and strive and work hard to improve every day so to never disappoint them.
