In Search of eChapbooks

My family and I usually hide from the heat of California’s summers in the shade of New Hampshire’s maples. This summer will be no exception, but we will be driving instead of flying. I love tasting the landscape as it changes, rather than just instantly appearing in a new place. This will be the second time we’ve driven, but the first time we’ll take a northern route.

Since my children are older now and require less refereeing, I will have time to read along the way. So I got to thinking that it would be fun to read chapbooks written by authors from all the states/provinces we drive through–to not only see and smell the landscape, but to hear it as well. I’d love to hold the paper chapbooks in my hand as we drive, but I need to stick with Kindle versions since packing space will be limited.

In order to do this, though, I need your help. Do you know of authors who have eChapbooks currently for sale from:

a New Hampshire moment

I’m open to suggestions from both self published and indie press eChaps, as long as it is possible for me to read a sample before buying. Tweets & Goodreads ratings will be posted for the chapbooks I select. Possibly even a photo or two of me reading while resting in the landscape. Or even reading a video clip in situ?

Would LOVE to hear your suggestions. It’s totally fine to nominate yourself. Please use the comment section below to tell me title, author, state, and possibly a purchase link? Thanks ever so much! You guys are the greatest:-)

Cheers,
J.S.

P.S. Selections will be posted on my Cross-Country Reads page.

  1. Mmmmm. Jealous! I love taking trips like that. One of the biggest surprises was when we took 94 across North Dakota. It’s a unexpectedly beautiful state. I don’t know anything about chapbooks, but I’m sure you’ll find what you need and have a delicious reading trip.

    • Thanks so much, will check that out. My daughter and I are really looking forward to it. The guys? Not so much. We’ll have to win them over with loads of great scenery:-)

      • Ah, Illinois. Just realized you have those already. Not sure where Brett Elizabeth Jenkins lives now off the top of my head, though.

      • Hmmm. As a Wheaton & NIU grad, I could be persuaded to read multiple chapbooks in Illinois. Especially since we’ll be there for several days visiting friends. [pause while I cyberstalk for a sec] Oh you’re in luck! She’s from Minnesota. Heading off to download now…
