I can't believe that its finally happened ! Since I was just a kid I've dreamed of being a Published Author - and that became a reality on February 3, 2015 - but NOW my short story "The Little Garage Library" is out there FOR SALE ! ! ! It's still an eBook, but what the heck? Everyone is moving toward eBooks and eReaders now, though we NEVER want to see the demise of REAL books, do we? That sounds too much like "Fahrenheit 451" and "The Time Machine", among others. REAL books, whether they'd be created from paper, hide, papyrus, or some futuristic plastic substance, are still the keystone of our civilization. I know I want my great, great, great grandchildren to know books and libraries - not just 'virtual' ones! 'Virtual' actually means 'pretend' doesn't it? Or 'not real' or 'not tangible'. No, I want everyone in the future, no matter what their stature or wealth, to know what REAL books are! Right now, though, we must make them WANT to read - even if it's on something electronic and looks like a computer-ish thing - such an enticement would be a small price, for now.
