This edition of my first book won't be available much longer:
remember the first time I saw the cover design. I clicked on the file
to open it, and then covered my eyes and peeked through my fingers while
the image slowly appeared on my screen. I was so scared that I would
hate it! Instead, I sat there gazing at it, enraptured. Before I saw it,
I had no preconceived notions of what the cover should look like, but
designer Sam Kim picked the perfect way to represent this story of
secrecy, loss, and obsession.
In this marketplace, however, books
tend not to last forever, especially hardcovers. Very soon, this one
will vanish. (I suppose I can then call it a collector's item?) It's had
a nice three-year life on the shelves, and it will live on in paperback
and e-book form, so I can't complain. I just thought I'd let people
know that if you've ever had a fancy for this edition, it's now or
Such is the cycle of (book) life that as one hardcover
passes out of print, another is getting ready to make its appearance.
This one won't be out until fall, so I'm not talking much about it yet,
but here's a sneak peek:
Coming September 2013.
