A year ago, if someone had asked me, “E-books or print?”, I would have said print only. I bought an eReader late last year, and while I still tend to purchase more print books, I have been reading more and more e-versions of books. I bought all of the Guild Hunter books as eBooks, and the entire Midnight Breed series is on my reader. Ward’s books were bought as print novels, so I won’t mix them up and start getting eBooks of her BDB series. I get anal about it all, honestly. If I’m reading a set, I want them all in the same format, so… Plus, short stories and novellas are most often only available in eformats, and they’re easy to take with you that way, too.
I listen to music all day long; it’s what keeps me focused, and some days it’s what keeps me sane! When I’m writing, I love environmental sounds playing in the background, wolves howling, storms, rain forests, etc. When I want singers, I tend to turn on Radio Italy Live from New York, and just let that play in the background. Music can often enhance the writing of certain scenes, because they set the mood in a subconscious way.
What about you? What are your thoughts on e-readers and e-books and/or music?

Once in awhile you create a book that seems to resonate with people, and this is one of them. A historical Western that was born in my fascination for my childhood hero, Paladin. So, Dylan Coulter is a combination of Paladin’s urbane charm and sophistication and his lethal side, of course. Maggie is a woman a little ahead of her time, strong, compassionate, and independent.
