Welcome Beverly Johnson to OTPblog!
My book, “A Door Opens”, by Bispo, is an e-book and I’m receiving great reviews from those who have read it. Letting people know about my book, is a challenge, because there is no book signing and nothing tangible for anyone to see or hold, but the book is there and it’s real.
When I announce to my friends, I have a published e-book, they look puzzled and ask, what’s an e-book? When I explain, they’re skeptical, and say they would miss turning pages, holding the “book”, and many more excuses.
What they don’t understand is, we are moving forward. The world doesn’t stand still for anyone. When the horse and buggy became obsolete, the new auto owners felt comfortable with the horse whip mounted close at hand on their new car. Not long after, the car owners learned to love their cars. I’m sure, one day; everyone will love their e-book; a huge library at their finger tips.
Libraries are going out of business every day. We had three book stores in Santa Maria, California. Now we only have a dollar book store and a used book store. We’re there folks.
The real winner is, our children. One day they won’t have to lug, to and from school, all those books on their backs. This is truly a blessing.
