I enjoy "giving birth" to a band new character, as in Officer Foster in "Spirit Woman," but have fun taking a previous character and including them in other books as in Logan Singing Grass Young Bear.

Debra Can someone, anyone, tell me why it's like pulling teeth to get an eBook on my shelves. I've even tried going to my Kindle shelves, but it's not there for some reason. Should it be so difficult when eBooks are out selling hard copy?
