When you see your beloved writers’ books on a shelf, how does it make you feel? I must admit that most of my favorite novelists are mystery authors, but I don’t think it matters what genre you like best. It’s all in the presentation, as they say.
I admit to being a book hugger. I still like the smell of the new paper, the feel of the cover (especially delicious if it’s raised print, oh my), and the sight of the words, colors, or designs that fill the package.
I do like my Kindle, don’t get me wrong. Ordering an ebook while I’m lying in bed with time to read is still a delight. My bookshelves are crowded and novels are falling off the edge, so refraining from adding one more is not a big deal.
But oh how I love to hug that book! Instead of the onus being on sight, all five senses are engaged. I flip through the pages, take a sniff, feel the silky sheets, study the cover, read the flap (or its equivalent) over and over again.
Thus if you are book hugger like me (not to mention that I am a paperback writer too): Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book? It took me years to write, will you take a look? (stolen of course from The Beatles)
From November 1 to December 16, just in time for buying Christmas presents, my publisher is offering our books for $1 off the regular (already inexpensive) price. I promise my books are worthy of all your senses, from the fabulous covers to the delicious words.
