Waking Rose and Shadow of the Bear in Hardcover!


Happy Feast of the Assumption!

Just wanted to announce the official release of Waking Rose in hardcover. It's available only on Lulu.com, for $35.00. (Whew! Self-published hardcovers are pricey!)
And I'll make an official announcement of the first release of The Shadow of the Bear in hardcover.
As you afficianados might recall, Shadow was the new softcover title of the Snow White and Rose Red: A Modern Fairy Tale. So this is the first time there's ever been a hardcover of The Shadow of the Bear. New typesetting, and a lot of errors from the softcover are now fixed, which we are very happy about.

As for Black as Night, I'm still waiting on a license (for Claire Hamill's song, You Take My Breath Away) before I can release it. But hopefully it'll be here within the month.

The hardcovers take a LONG time to print, so be forewarned! But they're nice, classy editions for the diehard fan, and I hope you enjoy them!

My copy of Waking Rose (softcover) was shipped today from Lulu and I cannot wait until it gets here. I will be ordering the hardcovers of Waking Rose and The Shadow of the Bear as well! So very excited! Must now go calculate just how many hours it will take to arrive. (Come on. Give me a break. I have been anxiously awaiting this book for two long years!)

Regina-
I am soooo excited!!!!!! I emailed you a long time ago, but haven't in awhile, but all this time I have gotten on your website about once every week, looking for hidden doors, Waking Rose news, and updated notepad!!!! When I got on at the beginning of this week and found that your site had een redesigned and that Waking Rose was finally HERE I was ecstatic. My copy of it is on its way to me, and I have never been more excited to read a book than Waking Rose! Thank you so much, Regina, for writing such wonderful novels!!!

When i finished black as night this past spring i was so excited for when the third one would come out. I didn't know it already had until alst night when i was on my catholic school website and one of the girls was talking aobut how much she loved Shadow of the Bear and has anyone read the third one yet? i asked what the title was, (I actually thought it was WALKING Rose haha) and it took me forever googling it but i didnt find it til i was beside myself nad my best friend (Who is actually a protestant ubt loves the books as well) found this site! I have to ask my mom to order the book asap! I cna't wait to read it!

I just ordered my copy! Can't wait until it arrives... I didnt realize it was out though, because I had been only checking your notepad... My little sister found it though! Can't wait to read it!

I have ordered my copy of Waking Rose and I am excitedly awaiting it.
Just a question - for those of you who have ordered your books and received them. How long did it take for them to ship it and how long did it take for it to arrive? On the website (lulu.com) it said that it would take 3-5 business days. I ordered last Friday and they haven’t shipped it yet, so I am just wondering.
I don’t mean to be impatient, but, I’m leaving out of town at the end of the week with my family and I really am hoping that the book will be here before we leave. Thanks and God bless!

My case of 25 books took about 2 weeks to come. I wonder how long it took for those of you who ordered a single copy?

I really hope your book gets there in time, Veronica!

My copy took about 10 days total to arrive, and it came 4 days after being shipped.

My sister and I ordered our copy on the 12th of August, and it arrived on the 18th. I think our copy came 2-3 days after being shipped. I was really pleasantly surprised with how quickly it came! Since it seems like everything but schoolbooks (hehe) takes forever to arrive, I wasn't expecting Waking Rose till at least the 21st. :D

I got the book today! YAY! I can't wait to read it! Thanks to all your comments...
God bless and happy reading to all!

My book arrived after only a short (yet in a way so very long time) of six days. Each day went by as slow as molasses until it arrived, and I almost died with joy when it did! Lol. Thanks for such an awesome read, Regina!
