Have you ever met someone you knew you could love forever but you never got the chance to say it? Or perhaps that someone special is not who they appear to be. Everything is a simple twist of Fate.

Follow the lives of five couples as they find their way on this winding path. The journey begins with Another Love Will Find Us. Jack and Annie meet one rainy afternoon and find that you can miss out on a chance for love if you are too cautious.

During the month of July, Taps will make its debut. Brooke meets Chris while they are in Paris. The secrets he harbors could bring their romance to an abrupt end, so he hides the truth in hope that love can really conquer all things.

In If It Takes Forever, Taye loses his heart to Cassie. Can he make her see beyond the dangerous life he leads to see the man he really is?

On the last day of her vacation, the paths of Jessie and Liam cross. Forty Shades of Green tells story of their long distance romance and the obstacles they have to overcome along the way.

Madison learns that being in the wrong place at the wrong time can have a very unusual result in Upon a Midnight Clear.

And don’t worry if you miss a part of your favorite story, the entire So Close collection will be available as an eBook late 2012.

Are Books an Endangered Species?

Cnnfn.com had an interesting headline recently: Is Print Dead?

Curious, I clicked on it and watched a video of Mark Cuban, of all people, talking to a reporter about whether or not he believed the end was near for print media.  Getting your news from an actual newspaper these days is a little like using an abacus instead of a calculator.  Personally, I cancelled my subscription for my local newspaper years ago for a variety of reasons.  And although the discussion with Cuban centered around newspapers and magazines, it got me thinking about books. 

Print books aren’t dead just yet — heck, I just bought two this past weekend.  On the other hand, high on my wish list is a new e-reader, although I can’t decide between the Kindle and the Nook.  (Yes, I’d love an iPad but that’s not going to happen this year.) 

Anyway, Amazon predicts its digital books could increase 84% this year.  Last Christmas, their digital books outpaced sales of their hardcover books.  The growth of digital books has been, and looks like it will continue to be, nothing short of meteoric.  What’s not to like? You get what you want, when you want it, cheaper, and usually within 60 seconds. 

While I’ll probably continue to buy the occasional hardcover book, mostly because I love to visit my local bookstore, I’d say that while hardcover books are not dead they are most certainly on life support.

What’s your take on this? I’d love to find out.
