The new covers for THE VAMPIRE BRIDE SERIES enjoyed a wonderful cover reveal on Monday and the feedback has been extremely positive. The eBook formats already have the updated covers, but the paperbacks will continue to have the old covers until September. This post is all about the new versions of the trade paperbacks, how they will look, and how to purchase them.
Why The Changes?
Since I regained the rights to the first book, I've been wanting to update the interior and make the trade paperbacks fancier. Ebooks are very popular due to the lower price, which is completely understandable, so I wanted to make the paperback versions special for those readers willing to pay a little more money for a physical copy. The interior of the trade paperbacks have been undergoing a revamp as well under the skillful hand of Kody Boye. Utilizing vintage artwork, he's been creating a whole new look for the interior. The new artwork and formatting style has created a much more dynamic reading experience.
How Will They Look?
The boosk now have a much more otherworldly feel from the very beginning of the first book. Check out the new title page and the opening page of Glynis' journal.
Kody has added other little tweaks throughout the novel making it beautiful to just flip through, let alone read.
I understand that a physical copy of a book is an expensive investment and I want to make sure that the fans of this series will be able to purchase beautiful versions.
My own personal estore (on this blog and on my website rhiannonfrater.com) will have both books available and you can have them autographed to your specifications. We don't have a price set yet, but as soon as I have worked out all the details on Createspace (the printer) I will let you know.
Amazon.com will also have the updated books immediately. The books are POD (publish on demand), so a book is printed when you order and shipped to you.
Book Depository, Barnes and Noble, and some other online retailers may not have the new copies available immediately. They may have older stock that they will send you before they begin selling the newer versions. So be aware you may end up with an older version.
Also, second-hand retailers will most likely only carry the older versions as well.
The Vampire Bride Series is very close to my heart and I'm very excited about the revamp. I hope you will enjoy it, too.
