Red face Greetings from Lisa Mason, Author

I've just published SUMMER OF LOVE, A TIME TRAVEL on Amazon.com as a Kindle book and got turned onto this amazing site by my gracious colleague, Jeff Carver. I started an online publicity campaign yesterday within minutes after uploading the book and already I've gotten some interesting reactions.

Older longtime fans and colleagues at the writers' organization Jeff and I belong to, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, have said,"Harumph! I only read REAL books." These folks (age 50+) are habitual, avid fiction readers.

When I've suggested they spread the word to the teens and tweens in their families--since SUMMER OF LOVE, A TIME TRAVEL is a harrowing coming-of-age story, a love story, a historical snapshot of a remarkable social phenom that happened in 1967 from which you can trace the very roots of attitudes and behaviors that once were "underground" and nowadays are mainstream, and a speculative look at the future--several have answered, "My kids don't read for pleasure."

What do you, my MobileRead friends, think about that? Who are you?

What do you, my MobileRead friends, think about that? Who are you?
I'm over age 50, a habitual avid fiction reader who is thrilled to be able to carry multiple books at the same time (on my Sony reader) without increasing the size or weight of my bag. I don't see the e-books as any less "real" than paper books.

Is SUMMER OF LOVE available in other formats, such as epub? It sounds interesting, but I can't read Kindle books on my reader and don't like reading books on my computer screen.
