    • Thank you Julianna for stopping by. Not quite sure how to help with your comment. Are you able to download the ebook? Here’s the direct link in Smashwords ( – you’ll have to create a free account with Smashwords before you can download it.)

      You can then scroll down the ebook title page where it has the choices of what you want to use to digitally download (i.e. Kindle, ePub, Online Reading HTML, PDF) and on the right double click where it says “download” and it will bring the application of your choice up on your PC or mobile device.

      If all else fails here’s the link to my unpublished PDF ( It won’t have the title page or reader credits like the published version.

      Please let me know if you have any problems and I hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to another visit.

  2. Thanks for sharing your stories. I downloaded your e-book from smashwords,com. I relate to sleepless in Bailey – when I visit my island in the Caribbean, I find myself rushing – California style – I have to remind myself to be in the moment, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility.

    Love your book.

    • Wow! Adalia – you just made my day and made me smile! 🙂 ~~ Thank You!

      I truly appreciate your feedback and I can’t tell you how much it means that you enjoyed the stories and could relate. Those wee hours of the morning take on an almost magical, unique ambiance giving a sense of serenity and calmness. Like you, it reminds me what’s important, when I slow down long enough to notice and capture the moments.

      I hope you’ll come back for another visit. You’re welcome to pull up a chair anytime and sit at my internet “kitchen table” to share a tale or two.

  5. Hello Pat,

    I have just created a sub-blog, “Ekasringa Avatar’s Book Reviews”, for which you will retrieve the link in the menu “My personal writings” from my blog “Welcome to the World of Ekasringa Avatar”.

    And I wanted to honor your book as the very first one I reviewed as a debut for me into book reviews. If you would like a complete look on my blog post regarding review of your e-book, here is the link:

    When you have a moment check it and tell me what you think about it 🙂 Meanwhile all I can tell you as a start is that this e-book of yours is a real WOW 🙂

    • Oh my, thank you so much, Uma, for such a beautiful review on my free e-book. I loved it — you made my day! I’m truly humbled and honored by your kind words but most of all I’m happy you enjoyed reading it.

      • Hello Pat, you are welcome dear 🙂 In fact I have no experience in Book Reviewing, it’s the very first try that I did, and this through your ebook 🙂 I am pleased that both you and Sherri appreciated it, though I did it as an amateur reader, but my aim between reviewing books is, in one hand to analyze the story, including characters and narrative environments, and in another hand, give a personal point of view about the book as a reader.

        Sherri also will have reviews from me as well very soon, that’s for sure 🙂 And this for free 🙂

        • It’s your first attempt in book reviewing, Uma, and it was my first attempt in writing any kind of a book.

          Sherri’s book will be a real, full-blown hand-held one, I’m sure. Not a short version like mine and only electronically. She’s been working on it for awhile.

          Thank you again — your first review sure was a hit in my opinion. 🙂

    • Aw — thank you, Raili. Hope you enjoy the read. It’s short and sweet and shouldn’t take too much time to read. My first attempt. Let me know what you think. 🙂

I would love to hear from you. . .thank you for stopping by.
