The Melanie Chronicles is live on now!

Yup, that's from

So now it’s official: the print version of The Melanie Chronicles is live on Amazon. You can find it here and it’s only $3.99 + shipping. A few people asked me why I was doing a print version when it’s already available as an e-book. Well, not everyone has or wants an e-reader. My mother is one of those people. She isn’t interested in e-readers at all–despite all my efforts to convince her of the joy that is Kindle. When I was in Philadelphia in February, we had a conversation that went something like this…

Me: Mom, I’ve published my collection of short stories now.

Mom: Oh, good! Where is it?

Me: It’s an e-book, so it’s on my Kindle. (Show my mother the ebook.)

Mom: But where’s the book?

Me: On the Kindle. See? Right there… (Show her the cover, etc on the Kindle.)

Mom: That’s so nice, honey, but I want a real book. Can’t you print one for me? You know I don’t like these techno-thingies.

I should also add that my mother doesn’t read the email I send her unless I call her first and tell her I’ve sent her an email. She’s not very into computers. She won’t even buy anything online if she can help it.

Anyway, several of my friends have also said they want to read my book but don’t have an e-reader and don’t like reading books on their computers. Plus, I am one of those people who loves my e-reader but still loves the thrill I get from having print books.

So for any of you who are like me and still like print books or if you’re like my mom and you don’t like techno-thingies, the wait is over–the book is now officially live on You can also order it from my CreateSpace mini-store.

That’s it for now! I am trying to finish A Little Night Music and Another Cup of Love, plus the revision/editing of Snowbound so you can have even more from me to read .

  1. Congrats, Kim! Since you’re also an Italophile, you’ll understand the expression ‘Viva la mamma!’

    I work with ‘techno-thingies’ all day and in my free time I want an old-fashioned, dog-eared book between my hands rather than a machine. Even better if it has sand in its pages from reading it on the beach. : )

    So I’ll look forward to seeing your paper version. Special thanks to your mom! And congratulations on your exciting news!

    • Thanks, Kimberly! Now that I know what to expect from doing a print-on-demand paperback, I think it will be easier next time. I just ordered a copy to send to my mom. I think she will be pleased. 🙂

  2. Kim, I can identify with your mother. I don’t have an e-reader device either. I know this sounds crazy, me being an author and all of my books are in both formats. But I prefer the feel of the book. It is true, not everyone has an e-reader. Best wishes to you and your book.

  3. Hi Kim I just transferred my old blog to a new blog and I titled it The Chronicles of Melanie lol. I had no idea it was already taken. I did a “Melanie” search in wordpress, and got you. It’s a good thing I got you. I’m trying to keep my new blog a secret from certain people, so I don’t want it to pop up in a “Melanie” search.

    I’ll check out your book on Amazon. Good job on writing an Ebook! I’ve been wanting to do that, but I’m too darn lazy. Some day.

    • Thanks, Melanie! 😀 I will have to check out your blog. Hope you enjoy the The Melanie Chronicles when you get a chance to read it. I’ve got a short story + novel planned for next e-realease. 🙂 Not about Melanie but there are more Melanie stories coming.
