Print Pre-Order for The Frost Maiden’s Kiss

The Frost Maiden's Kiss, a medieval romance and third book in the True Love Brides series by Claire DelacroixThere’s a pre-order option for the PRINT edition of The Frost Maiden’s Kiss on Amazon this morning. This book is longer, around 110,000 words, and that shows up in the number of pages in the print edition.

It’s right here.

I’m asking but I doubt there will be a pre-order on Amazon for the digital edition. It’ll be available on Amazon on the 26th. The print edition will be available at other portals (like B&N) within a couple of days of the 26th – the Book Depository always takes about 10 days to process the information, so it’ll be a bit later.

Matte Covers on POD Editions

Sometime last fall, the print on demand supplier I use (Createspace) introduced a new cover finish. Until then, all covers had been glossy, but they began to offer a choice of finish: matte or glossy.

Beguiled was the first book for which I used the matte finish, and it really is lovely. Because I like it so much, I’ll be using it for all future books, and also working back through my publication list to switch older books over to the matte cover finish. The print edition of The Frost Maiden’s Kiss is all locked and loaded, and it will have a matte cover. This week, I also switched over The Last Highlander to a matte cover because I was updating the interior anyway.

Just in case you like the matte finish as much as I do, I’ll keep you posted on my progress in changing the settings on the older books.
