Sunkissed in Paperback!

So excitingly, today my publisher informed me that Sunkissed is now available in paperback! As much as I love ebooks, I have to admit that there is something nice about being able to physically own a book.

There is an ongoing debate among readers as to whether ebooks or physical copies of books offer the best reading experience. I am hoping to join the digital revolution at the end of the year when Santa hopefully gets me a Kindle for Christmas. The benefits will be being able to own numerous books without having to physically store them somewhere.

But then, when I really adore a book I want to own it, want to be able to hold it in my hands and pass it on to friends to read and enjoy.

I don't think owning a Kindle will drastically change my reading habits I will hopefully just be able to read more books and then only buy paperback copies of the ones I truly love.

First Reviews...

The first reviews for Sunkissed have started to come in. It has been a tense time waiting to hear what people think of the story. Some YA book bloggers were kind enough to read Sunkissed and promote and review it through their blogs.

With reviews, you anticipate that there are going to be people who don't like it. Its such a subjective area and you can't please everyone, but for me, knowing that someone has read and enjoyed my book is a massive deal as ultimately that's why I write - so that others can lose themselves within the stories I create.

So when I read one of my first reviews, courtesy of Katie at Curse of the Bibliophile I was thrilled that she enjoyed the book and gave it 5 stars!

I know that not everyone will feel the same way, but its nice to know that someone out there loved reading the story as much as I loved writing it!

I look forward to getting more reviews and feedback from people. I've also commenced work on the Sunkissed sequel which is currently untitled.

Thank you to everyone who has agreed to read and review the story, I admire the time and dedication bloggers put in to their sites! And a massive thank you to Katie. It might be a typical rainy day here in England, but I'm smiling! : )
