What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use a Kindle Fire. I've never used any of the others so I can't really compare. With the Fire I get a great view of covers.
Describe your desk
My desk, hmmm, in a word, messy. I start out neat and organized, but a day or two into the week and it's messy again. I work much better when it is neat and organized. Unfortunately, I seem to have an issue keeping it that way.

Smashwords book reviews by Sandra S. Kerns

  • 1001 Romance Story Starters on Aug. 17, 2012
    (no rating)
    1001 Romance Story Starters is one of the best prompt books I've ever purchased. Ms. Elton has a great way of making you feel like she is there cheerleading you to start your story. The prompts are quite varied and range from actual story starters to ideas for ending scenes and chapter hooks. Wow! This is one you definitely want on your 'shelf' for reference when that dreaded blank monitor or piece of paper is taunting you. This book is definitely worth the money.
  • Love Child on Oct. 21, 2014

    Love Child is a wonderful return to true contemporary romance. The conflict between the hero and heroine is more than believable, it's all too often true in the 'real' world. Amelie Rose has a great grasp on characterization. All of the characters were well rounded and enjoyable, even the 'villain', though I enjoyed her in a totally different way (truly a character worth hating). Well done, Amelie.
  • You're Getting Married Soon... Now What? A Book for All Couples on July 22, 2015

    Great, down to earth advice for anyone thinking about gettingmarried and a must read for newly engaged couples, or people thinking about getting engaged. The straight forward advice in a sometimes humorous, sometimes personal tone, keeps you turning pages because it feels like a friend talking to you. Someone you trust, who has maybe been through it themselves. I wish I had a guide like this when I was first thought of marriage. It would have made life so much easier.
