E is for eBooks – The New Normal for Publishing


Harry Potter: I loved them!

I know most of you will not believe it, but I think my first experience with eBooks was in 1998 or 1999. The Harry Potter series was just starting off and the books had not reached India yet. Then one day, a friend got me a pdf file on a CD, and said that I HAD to read it as it was a brilliant book (It was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, of course). I am so glad I did!

Giveaway of ‘Bleedover’ by Curtis Hox and $50 Gift Card


Thank you everyone who entered the giveaway! The giveaway is now closed and the winner will be contacted by the author!

As part of the ‘Bleedover Blog Tour’ I will be giving away a copy of the eBook to one lucky winner.

The author is also giving away a $50 Gift card to one lucky winner who will be chosen from across the blog tour. The link to enter this giveaway is available below the entry form.

About the book:

An intriguing phenomenon in literature and arts.
A maverick professor’s quest to find answers.
And a discovery that will shock the world.

Books, TV, film, advertising. It’s all being mysteriously altered, and no one knows why. Dr. Harriet Sterling claims she understands, even if no one believes her. She calls it the New Phenomenon of Bleedover.
She’s alone, though, because the science establishment stands in her way. When trusted graduate students generate an apple out of thin air in a controversial bleedover project, the world takes notice. So does an old enemy thirsty for revenge, Corbin Lyell, who manipulates bleedover to hurtle monstrosities from the world of his pulp heroes, H.P. Lovecraft and R.E. Howard.
Dr. Sterling must stop Lyell’s apocalyptic plans, but with enemies on all sides undermining her discovery, can she succeed?
With a heady mixture of serious literature and genre fiction, Bleedover dazzles as a thought-provoking work of science fiction and contemporary fantasy that both inspires and entertains.
