Poughkeepsie Enhanced Collectors Edition App Tour.


Welcome to the Poughkeepsie Enhanced Collector’s Edition App Tour.
We were lucky enough to get to play with the app already, and let me tell you, it's addictive!! I can't wait for the time when all the books and series we love come with apps just like this. Read all about the app below, check out Jenn's review, and BE SURE to enter the enormous giveaway at the bottom of the post!!


Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia has been a cult hit bestseller since 2011. A homeless guy counting the smiles of a kind train commuter spiraled into a novel that was nominated by the Rockstars of Romance as one of the most romantic stories ever and won 2nd place!   It was a story that deserved getting a jumbo-sized enhancement. Extra scenes out the ying yang was, of course, a huge part of the fun. Getting to spend some of those previously undiscovered first moments with Blake and Livia or the moment he proposed was worth exploring. In Debra’s wildest dreams she imagined Poughkeepsie with its own soundtrack, anchored by her favorite musicians. When blockbuster talent Ron Pope signed on with fourteen songs and then Rustic Overtones agreed as well, she knew things were going to get crazy cool.

 After almost two full years of development, the Enhanced Poughkeepsie is ready.  Debra lost count of the hours spent, as did the developer poured into this. It was beast, and more amazing than she could have ever imagined. This app became the most exceptional reading experience Debra could devise for her readers.

Jenn Donald reviews  the Poughkeepsie Enhanced App from Debra Anastasia

Poughkeepsie is one of my very favorite books! It makes me laugh, cry and just captures my heart and this app takes reading to a whole new level!! It makes it an experience. There is music, oh the music, pictures, additional stories and commentary from Debra on certain moments and scenes. I always felt like these characters were real people and now I know they are!

I absolutely lost myself in the story (again) while going through the app and while I haven’t had a chance yet to go through every detail it is amazing and beautiful! I love to get lost in a book but this version of Poughkeepsie is a full emersion into the story. I felt every emotion deeper and became a part of their story. There are so many new details and moments that it was almost like experiencing it all for the first time again. It’s something truly unique to have the pictures and songs right there next to the moments as they happen in the story.

It’s a new and magical experience and I want to hug Debra Anastasia something fierce for creating this gift. I know without a doubt I will continue to spend hours with Blake and Livia and the entire Poughkeepsie crew. I am truly in awe of what she has created here and am amazed to say that I love Poughkeepsie even more, which I truly didn’t think was possible.  Thank you Debra, for creating this beautiful creation that has forever sealed these people in my heart!


For this tour, there is one HUGE giveaway that you totally should treat yourself to entering.
