“This is the ultimate love letter to my readers,” says Poughkeepsie author, Debra Anastasia.
The enhanced eBook APP for Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia is exclusively available for iPad users via the APP store on your device. Additional Apple and Droid platform apps will be available soon.
"I am totally loving this new way to "read" a book. The moment I launched the app I knew I was in for a treat! I loved and appreciated how the first thing I saw was a video of Debra telling us all about the app. The additional stories and all the accompanying videos just make the reading experience that much richer! I'm so digging the music, I'm listening to it as I read. It's like opening a gift at every swipe! This isn't reading, it's an experience!" – Francine P.
“The Poughkeepsie Enhanced EBook brings reading to a whole new level. The author is an amazing writer, and she paints some very vivid scenes and characters for you in the book...the Enhanced EBook takes it a step further. The added scenes give the reader some new perspectives to the story. The music, sound effects and the photos help even the most limited of imaginations to really step foot into the story. This app is in one word...GENIUS. I wasn't sure I could love this story more than I already do. The app proved me wrong because it's like experiencing this story I love so much as though it was the first time I read it and through different eyes. What a brilliant idea. Books will never be the same.” -- Eve

Poughkeepsie SYNOPSIS: He counts her smiles every day and every night at the train station. Morning and evening, a beautiful commuter acknowledges him, just like he’s anyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others. He’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.
Tracing the path of her daily trek to the city, Livia McHugh is convinced she’s the same. The same as a million other girls. Nothing special—certainly no one to be cherished. She continues on her way, smiling politely at everyone, never imagining that some people rely on her simple human gesture to jumpstart their day.
Then comes the moment when Livia must do more than smile. She steps into the fray to defend the homeless man, never expecting his voice to trickle so thrillingly down her spine. After the danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something within each of them as it evolves into love.
It seems simple, and it’s certainly exciting, but their bond must soon prove its strength. Entanglements from the past will prove a challenge to both their love and their lives.
Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?
Debra is a writer and mother from Maryland. Book signings and author events to be announced. Please see http://www.debraanastasia.com for more information.
