E-Books and Bookshelves

We  actually have a lot of books in a lot of bookshelves; books that span generations in my family. I love seeing them there.  Having written some hardcover books, now, however,  I am writing an ebook. Since I enjoy social networking (and am told I have some sort of “presence” there), my agent suggested I do an ebook. Why not? It’s called Women on Men, and it’s all humor from women’s perspective, mostly about the other half,  and will be out in the next few weeks. I know some of you already know about it, as I have been promising the book’s arrival for a while. But e-publishing is so different than the regular publishing world (from my experience): things don’t necessarily go according to schedule.  But I do know it’s soon!

For those of us who still love seeing books in real bookshelves and not just those virtual ones on your ereader, and for those of us who love holding books:  my ebook will be print-on-demand, too.

    This eBook sounds very cool. I look forward to “owning” it! (Does one “own” an eBook?) I might need to “print it on demand” as well. Good luck with sales. I now have a bookshelf devoted to Liza Donnelly books! (My daughter says I am the “queen” of using “quotation marks” and “exclamation marks” in my email and text messages so please “forgive” the overuse!)

    Has anyone designed an ereader shelf yet? Talk about scaling-down. I will NEVER give up on real, bound, smells-good-when-you-open-it, dusty, dog-eared, coffee-stained books. I will order your ebook, because I must see it, but I shall order a print-on-demand version as well: it’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it! Plus, my third shelf down needs one more book on the right. (Actually, your book should be on the left…hah!)

    Besides, if I’m ever in line at one of your book-signings, how can you sign my ebook?
