eBook Wednesday - Deidre's Secret Edition

We're all about eBooks and eBook readers here at Climbing Rose. So this month, when dozens of new eReaders debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it was hard to decide which one was the most exciting.

But how's this for inspiring eBook reader envy? It's the eDGe by enTourage Systems--a "dualbook" with WiFi and both e-ink and LCD displays. Here's an article and video about it (by a British techie guy with a cool accent :)

And if you're looking for a great eBook to download, look no further than Deidre's Secret by Terry Lee Wilde. Here's the blurb:

When Deidre Roux has premonitions of danger, watch out! Faced with thwarting bank robbers and protecting others from the high school bully, she must reveal her secret to her new friend, Mark Cummings. Can she convince him that she truly sees a world of imminent danger headed their way before it's too late?

Not only must Mark deal with Deidre’s premonitions, which he has a hard time believing, but his convicted uncle has returned home. Humor, suspense, and conflict rule the day as Deidre’s crazy aunt tries to do a true crime story on Mark's uncle. Deidre attempts to keep her aunt out of it before she gets mixed up in the much darker business of robberies and murder—her own, if she’s not careful.


And here's an excerpt:

When Deidre woke that morning, she knew there was going to be trouble. She was sure it had to do with turning sixteen the week before. In a split second, her whole world had changed. Now, the vision she saw wasn’t just about rescuing newspapers before the automatic sprinklers turned on, or saving a kitten from a tree. The scenario had turned deadly.

The tingling sensation began in her forehead and a snapshot formed in her mind. Just a brief image. A blurred profile of a teacher choking on a chunk of hot dog. Deidre would have to rescue her, and when she did, her chances of ever having a boy ask her to the Valentine’s dance would vanish.

But something else plagued the recesses of her mind. Something that forced a chill down her spine. The uncontrollable fear that her visions had warned her before and she had failed to save someone, swept over her like an icy shower.


Visions? Premonitions? Murder? That sends a chill down my spine! Download your copy from the Climbing Rose eBook store today.
