The print copies of The Frost Maiden’s Kiss arrived! Aren’t they beautiful?
I feel the urge to give at least one away. Comment on this post and tell me why you should be the lucky recipient! I’ll choose a winner Friday night.
You know the drill – the contest is open internationally, and for every 25 entries, I’ll add another prize. Good luck!
There’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.
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.
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.
