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!
