One Week of Wolves-Welcome!

Welcome! In one week’s time my first print release will be out, and I’m beyond thrilled. My author’s copies arrived, and I swear there is nothing like the feeling of holding a book I wrote! So to share a bit of the excitment with you, I’ve got a few guests coming in this week, and I’ll be giving away some books.

First off, I have to announce that there was a pre-party event, where readers/bloggers etc  shared information about this week. The winner of the draw for a print copy of Under the Northern Lights is:

Anna, From Anna’s Book Blog.

Congrats, and thanks to everyone for sharing the news about One Week of Wolves!  Anna, send me an email with your mailing address, and once I’m back from RWA, I’ll mail it out!

For the rest of the contest/celebration all you have to do is add a comment to the day’s post to be entered. All the prizes are available to anyone–I am capable of mailing to out of North America locations. ;)

Since I’m currently away at RWA, and I’m not sure how much internet time I’m going to get (HA!) I’m going to keep the daily contests open until the end of August 1st, so you’ll have until then to enter. I’ll announce the winners on the 2nd, and you’ll have a week to get in touch with me to claim your prize.

If I do manage to nab some internet time at RWA, I’ll hold a couple instant contests, most likely on Twitter. (@VivianArend) So keep your eyes open for those.

I hope you enjoy a chance to howl with me.

Congrats on your new print book!

Personally for my about 95% is in print while everything else is ebook. There are certain publishers I buy solely in ebook format (Elloras Cave, Samhain, etc) because it is cheaper. Others I tend to buy in print. I just love the feel of the paper in my hands.

Mine is more than 99% print, but so many cool stories only get released as ebook, that I very grudgingly am starting to get into ebooks. Wolf Signs was the first ebook I bought I must confess,

Congratulations! I love the title Under The Northern Lights, it’s so perfect ;-)
Right now my personal library is about 60% print, and 40% ebook. Since I’ve bought my Sony Reader, I try to only buy digital but because I live in the exotic locale of Canada (snort!) sometimes I’m not “allowed” to buy the ebook and have to get the print.

Have a great time at RWA!

It’s been about a month since I updated my Excel spreadsheet, but it looks like I have about 63% print compared to 37% ebook. I’ve bought only about3 or 4 prints this past month since I have a Nook now. I’m really concentrating on just buying digital but have noticed that sometimes they cost more than print.

I’m old skool. 99.9 percent of my library is print. I only have a handful of e-books. I just find them hard to read w/out an ereader.

I have a pretty balanced library. Though, I just got a Nook at the beginning of the year, I’ve been downloading e-books to my computer for years. I’m at about 46% e, 54% print.
I love to buy print books, and visit the book store. But, the convenience of e-purchasing, and the immediate gratification means that I have duplicate print/ebooks, as well as using solely epubs.

My library is about 2/3 print and 1/3 ebook currently. And will probably stay close. It’s hard to get an shook autographed.

Our library is primarily print books. Maybe 2% is actually ebooks, but they’re not ebooks that I’d read because they’re mostly non-fiction. The majority of books I buy also are print books.

MinnChica

Mine is probably about 60-40 ebooks. The only books I buy in print anymore are ones where I already have the majority of the series in print, ones I get from the library sales, and ones that my aunt sends me. :)

My bookshelf is probably 95% print and 5% ebook since I love buying paperbacks and seeing them on the selves.

Anna Shah Hoque

So the current number stands at around 450 print books vs 1215 ebooks – my e-collection is surpassing my print by leaps and bounds.

I love your stories and wait, anxiously, for each new one.

I have enough print books that I have had to clean curios off shelves to have enough room to shelve them – but I am having to get a portable hard drive to house my e-books, so I guess e-books win. I really enjoy both, but have found I want my favorite e-books in print form, for some reason. Guess it’s a generational thing.

Diana (Book of Secrets)

I have around 700 print books and 100 eBooks (mostly short stories). So, about 13% of my books are digital. If the price of an eBook is equal to or more than a print copy, I will buy the paper book.

I’d say mine is 70% print 30% ebooks. I recently got an ereader so I’m slowly accumulating more ebooks.

Wow. I did the math and found out that approximately 20% of my library consists of ebooks. The remaining 80% is in print. Impulse and backlist buying of ebooks adds up quickly…

Btw, WOLF SIGNS is one of the first ebooks I bought after I had my hot little debit card in my hands, and the first one I bought on impulse, just because I liked the sound of it. It’s still one of my favorite rereads…

I will say that my e-book collection is steadily growing…. I guess it is about 80% print, 20% digital… :D

Well, looking around me I’d say 65% is print with ebooks the other 35%. I’m buying more ebooks, but the number of print books I’ve bought and will buy still outnumbers digital.

Hi I must be the exception as I have 100% ebooks as I read on my computer and my iphone while away from home. Look forward to reading more of your books.

I have two ereaders with a combined total of 2176 ebooks, plus eight ereader apps on my Droid (kindle, kobo, ereader, B&N, borders and more) with over four hundred ebooks loaded. I would say my collection is over seventy percent ebook now. Don’t enter me in today’s contest because I have every Viv Arend book so far. Wolf Signs is still one of my frequent rereads.

Mine is about 70% print. While I love to feel (and smell) books, ebooks are just so much easier. I had an accident about 8 years ago that left me a quadriplegic with little hand control, so having a Kindle helps with handling books. Also, the web-sites that sell ebooks are just great for instant gratification.

I have hundreds of each format, so I guess it’s about 50/50. I love the ease of eBooks – reading them as well as purchasing them. I wouldn’t have tried a lot of great authors had it not been for the ability to read eBooks. If there is an eBook, I truly love, I’ll sometimes purchase that paperback. Love your books, Viv!! Thanks for sharing your gift with us!

I’ve only had a Kindle for a few months so right now I’m probably 97% print but from here on out I will mostly be spending my book money on ebooks.

Moonsanity (Brenda)

Until a few months ago it would have been like 10% ebooks, but I have really gotten into my kindle now, so I’m guessing it’s 50/50 now, maybe even more like 60/40:)

Oooo Thank you!!! I just sent you my mailing information.

I haven’t counted but I think I have just as many ebooks as
I do books in print. I enjoy both formats. :)

I’d say about 80% is print and 20% is e-books, but I have lots of both kinds. Books are my drug of choice.

Roxanne

I’d have to say about 95% of my library too is print. I don’t have a smart phone yet, or I’m sure I’d have more ebooks to read on the train! I’m very picky about my purchases too, once I find an author I love I hunt down her lesser known ebooks.

I would say aboyt 95% is in print but I feel more would be ebooks once I get a Nook or other ebook reader. I download ebooks on my computer though and enjoy them.

I keep very few print books on hand – most I either donate to the library or trade on Paperback Swap, but now that I have a Kindle, my ebook library is huge and shows no sign of slowing down. I’d say my library is about 95% ebooks and 5% print.

Until 3 years ago I was 99% print and 1% ebook but then I got an ereader and I have to say the ratio has changed. So probably more like 55% print and 45% ebook and increasing all the time.

Congrats on your print release. I have the 1st book in the granite lake series and need to pick up the rest of them. what percent of my library is print, wow I have 3 five shelf book cases that are packed so full of books they are over flowing. I probably have 400 plus books. My ebook collection is growing too. I have a kindle and have been collecting books for it for awhile. I have ebooks from Samhain, Ellora’s Cave and other’s on there besides the ones from Amazon. Since I’ve been reviewing books, I’m getting more ebooks… Read more »

By book list is still about 90% print books. I started getting e-books about a year ago when I found A series I wanted to continue and only found it in e-book. In the last few months I have wavered back and forth about the way I read. I really like to read a printed book, but the e-book takes up a lot less space. I also find a lot more selection by some of the authors i read come out as e-book long before they ever come out in print. Thanks to all the authors of all the hours… Read more »

I’ve been reading eBooks on my computer and Palm for years, so my library is probably about 70% eBook to 30% print. However, there are a few authors that I will ALWAYS purchase in print. I recently bought a Kindle, and Wolf Games was the first book I added and read! Anxiously looking forward to the next!! ?! Ashley
