I second the Kathleen Gilles Seidel, and the many posts for Judith Ivory/Judy Cuevas' books.

I'd also like to see more of Theresa Weir's books available, but I think they must be on the way, since a few have already appeared.

And Elisabeth Fairchild, Nancy Butler, and some of the other trad Regencies from way back.

Also, since we're on this subject, I've seen that Harlequin is making many titles from the 80s and 90s available, but so far, I've not seen any of the Silhouette Shadows or Dreamscapes from the 90s that were my first introduction to series romance. I really wish they'd digitize these, too, because I don't remember many of the ones I read (aside from Anne Stuart's "Break the Night," which was so wonderful that I had unrealistic expectations that were never fulfilled for the rest of the Shadows/Dreamscapes series, lol), and I'd like to see them again for curiosity's sake Laughing

I'd like to see the early regencies by Edith Layton, Laura London, and Candace Hern ebooked. Also, everything ever written by Maggie Osborn. Linda Howard's Silhouette Desires (all but the first couple). Kristin Hannah's early historical romances, the Rainbow Season/Promise by Lisa Gregory, Carla Kelly's entire backlist, Susanna Kearsley's older novels, Dara Joy's "familiar" books that she self-published and Risen Glory by SEP. Shana Abe's older books, Susan Andersen's older books, Rachel Gibson's older books, and Suzanne Robinson's would go a long way toward emptying my keeper shelves, also.

Another vote for Patricia Veryan. Also Edith Layton and Judith Lansdowne esp. her Just... series.

You can find Candice Hern's regency titles at Smashwords and elsewhere. Dara Joy's familiar books are at all the usual places, too. I just noticed that Susan Andersen's Exposure is now an ebook, too. Look on Inkmesh.com for digital releases on some of these, there may be more out there than you think!

Xina mentioned Linda Howard's Duncan's Bride in an earlier post. I would love this book as an ebook. Its one of my favorite rereads, and about a month ago a misplaced my copy. I finally found it under a sofa!

Just thought of another one. I've been hoping more of Katherine Sutcliffe's would be reissued as eBooks. Not sure what is in the works for her, though.

Yay! So much better than finding dust bunnies! Another one...Truly, Madly Yours by Rachel Gibson. I had the urge to reread and found that it is one of the few (or maybe the only) books by this author that isn't in e-book form. Seems like a cruel joke to leave the best one out. I had to go out and buy a paper copy. Couldn't find mine. (I should check under my couch)

xina, I totally agree with you about the books by Linda Howard that you mentioned. Oddly enough, after too many years, Midnight Rainbow and Diamond Bay were re-issued in paperback in a two-fer volume last year. (The title of the two-fer book is "Trouble"--kind of silly, IMHO!)

I don't know if Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles is available digitally--when the books were re-issued a few years ago, I bought them and they're still in good condition. If they aren't available digitally, they should be!

Dunnett's Lymond and Niccolo series are both available in e-book form.

I noticed on Amazon today that Kindles are now showing for several of Anya Seton's books. However, it strikes me as odd that the edition dates are the original publisher dates. Just wondering if anyone noticed this and has tried them? I don't want to buy one and find out it's badly edited or not legitimate.

I'm in the Carole Nelson Douglas group on groups.yahoo.com. She is working on getting her older titles ready to become e-books. That is, she's doing the work itself. From her description of the process, it's quite a lot of work when an author doesn't already have the manuscript in some kind of electronic format.

Thank-you! Yes...I downloaded it as soon as it came out, just as I have with all of her books. They are treasures. Smile


Now...I'd like to see the McNaught and Howard books available. Let me know if you see them before I do.

I have a fantasy that all of my old favorites will be digitized. Some I have paper copies of and some I don't, but I am so used to reading on my Kindle now that anything else feels so awkward!

Slowly, but surely, many older titles are finding their way into digital format. I keep checking my favorites in hopes that they'll be available. And sometimes I am thrilled to see that is the case. I am currently glomming all of Carla Kelly and Mary Ballogh's backlist trads. I would like to see the early works by Judith McNaught, Christina Skye, Catherine Coulter, Shirlee Busbee, and the Curtises digitized among others. I would also love to see some of the old categories from Loveswept and Silhouette show up in an ebook format. I also have a list of older mysteries that I am waiting for. What I hate is when only part of a series is digitzed and that leaves you hanging. Many authors such as Marsha Canham have been self-publishing their old OOP titles which is great.
