SUBMITTED by Susan Peterson Gateley (7-Dec-2010)

Susan Peterson Gateley, author of six full length books and three shorter works on Lake Ontario has just published “Twinkle Toes and the Riddle of the Lake” as a Kindle book on Amazon.com's website.

Ebook downloads continue to take a growing share of the market, and the Ontario native said “It was time for Twinkle Toes the cat to leap into the digital age”. She hopes the story of a crabby cat's cruise from Pultneyville to Canada to solve a mystery will appeal to to lake watchers and sailors.

Gateley joins a number of other local scribes who are experimenting with print on demand books, blogs, and ebooks. Author Brooks Tenney has several of his thrillers listed as hard copy books in Amazon's regular bookstore and, like Gateley, has his most recent work available as a Kindle download. E books with their lower prices and no shipping costs are surging. This past week the Internet search engine powerhouse Google opened its own ebook store and claims to have 3 million titles available for download and one industry analyst is predicting a billion dollars in sales this year for digital works.

Peterson Gateley has been publishing 'traditional' books for fifteen years and says she's a bit of a klutz when it comes to going digital. “I bumbled around the Amazon store for a long time, but I think we managed to get the whole gang up there. When we checked with my husband's Droid download app for Kindle, everyone still had their heads and tails.” Still she says, she thinks it's a little weird to be able to read one of her books on a cell phone. She 's now working on converting “Riddle” to a format for Sony and other readers that don't allow Amazon downloads for sale on her online store www.chimneybluff.com.

For other 'traditionalists' out there you can find Peterson Gateley's paper based books at The Apple Crate in Williamson, Orchard View Farm stand in Rose, Wolcott Pharmacy, and at the Village Book Market in Palmyra as well as at other independent bookstores in Webster, Rochester, and Oswego. No batteries required.
