Paperback anyone?

I know it has been a while since I have updated on here. I’ve been enjoying Christmas and work has been keeping me busy. However, one of the side projects that I have had going on is to create a print version of my books for people who do not have e-readers or prefer a physical book to the electronic version.

So, I am happy to report that I am almost done with getting Threads That Bind ready for print. I  had wanted to have it ready before Christmas (you know for gifts and all that) but alas, it was not meant to be. I do have a proof being sent to me soon, and assuming that everything looks good with it, I will have it available for purchase shortly thereafter. I hope to have Unbound ready not long after Threads is done.

The cost will be a bit more than I had hoped for: $12.95. Since this is through Amazon and their print on demand service, the cost is higher per book then it would be if I ordered a hundred thousand copy print run. I could have gone with their standard template with smaller font squeezed together. It would have been fewer pages and therefore less expensive to print, but I wanted the book to look nice and be pleasant to read.

I don’t anticipate the paper version to be a huge seller, but I wanted to have it as an option for those who prefer that format. Plus I want to be able to actually put a copy on my shelf and maybe even sign one. 🙂

    Any idea when the third book will be ready on kindle? And what about the beta version of chapter 1 that was tossed around? I was thinking it would be nice to have a print book for our middle school library – but not at the expense of me not getting to know what happens with Madison and Ryhs sooner rather than later! I saw “quit your day job” and get that third book written!

      Well, Bonnie, that’s the big question, isn’t it? 🙂 I am shooting for sometime late this summer to have book 3 ready, but at this point I can make no promises. Unfortunately my writing is much slower than all of your reading ability. I want to make sure that what you get is at the same level of quality as the first two. I don’t want to disappoint any of my readers. 🙂

      And don’t worry, my side project of getting the books in print isn’t taking away from my writing time for book 3. Promise!

        Well, I’m an attorney – went to law school at the U of O. So if you need pre reading… It’s kind of like pre-zerking… I’m your girl! And are you going to give us a preview?

        • Brant says:

          Bonnie – Thanks for the offer! I will likely do the preview. I want to have a couple of more chapters done first to make sure that I don’t need to go back and make big changes to the beginning. Maybe in a couple of weeks I will post something… 🙂

            I’m glad we’ll know what’s coming soon! My sister in law just bought both books. I haven’t really been able to read much – I have 2 kids – but I think I’m going to get a kindle myself (and stop using theirs!) I’ve read 5 books in the past 6 days (or maybe 5?) and yours were the BEST!

      Well, Lana, I sure hope you are right! I just got the proof last night for Threads That Bind and the book looks really good! I will approve the proof and have it for sale shortly. Then I will get unbound up. Thanks for reading!
