Hey hey hey, Shadow's back on Amazon again!

Okay, some of you will be thinking,"What? Shadow of the Bear has been on Amazon since last year, through Amazon merchants. And of course I can get old copies of the Bethlehem version on Amazon."

True, true. But now for the very first time, my edition of Shadow with the new cover can be ordered directly from Amazon! This is because my husband and I decided to bow to the inevitable and officially become publishers, with ISBN numbers and everything. After several months of work, we have the new edition all set up with Lightning Source, who funnels orders directly to Ingrams, Spring Arbor, and big distributors like Amazon.

So what does this mean? This means you can go to your library and ask them to get a copy of the new Shadow in hardcover, and they can. You can ask your local bookstore to stock it, and they can order it right from the usual distributor they use for everything else. You can order copies for Christmas from Amazon and take advantage of FREE Super Saver Shipping! And it hopefully means lots less work for me and more time to work on writing the next book. :)

In just a week or two, hopefully the rest of the books will be up on Amazon as well. They'll be listed as "in stock" on Amazon: give me a shout out if you see them there before I do. And as usual, I will beg your generousity in supplying reviews for the book on Amazon: just cut and paste your reviews from the older editions if you like.

So click here to see the Amazon page of the hardcover edition of Shadow of the Bear. Feel free to rate it, review it, or just enjoy seeing the book easing out "into the mainstream" at last!

YAYY! I'm going to suggest it to my library tonight!

p.s. Is the Shadow of the Bear movie going to follow the book exactly or is it going to have to be changed around? And do you have any clue what/how it would be rated?

Thanks!

That is great. I just cross posted my review on Amazon.ca amazon.com and amazon.co.uk but I notice that it is not available at http://www.chapters.indigo.ca Canada's largest single bookseller?

Hi Minni mo!
There will be some changes to the movie, changes which I actually suggested that I think will help the movie translate better into a different medium. But hopefully all your favorite stuff will still be in there. Thanks for asking!

Hi Steve!
Not sure why it's not in there. Are they connected with Ingrams in any way? I know that not every book is in the Ingrams database yet: a bookseller friend of ours just checked....

ok, so I tried to suggest it to my library... but it's the library is small you have to fill out a form in person. :)

all right, that's cool... I just have a tendancy to NOT see movies that are made of my favorite books, because they usually mess them up... I probably won't be able to resist seeing this one though! I can't wait!

Oh sweet! So if I like go to the little tiny book store where I live and ask them to stock it, they should be able to?
