Paperback is out, and Word of Mouth

lftlthumbIt’s finally here!  ‘Lament for the Living’ is now available in paperback:

Lament for the Living in paperback

There are a couple of differences between the ebook copy and the print version.  No changes in the story, but some formatting details had to be omitted from the digital version.  As minor as they are, the print version is the actual vision I had for the book.

The changes are:

  • The ‘proper’ verso pages
  • Names with special characters are correctly included
  • The diary entry is handwritten

For those who like a nice physical book, then this is for you.  Ebooks are convenient, but I still like being able to flick pages (and be able to drop the book while reading in the bath…).

Also, word of mouth.  I’m sure that there are other people out there who have read my works via word of mouth, but yesterday I contacted a reader who had left some nice reviews of both ‘Lament for the Living’ and ‘The Deluge of Elias’.  I thanked him for taking the time to review my books, and asked him if one had lead to the other.

He replied that ‘The Deluge of Elias’ had been recommended to him via an online group, and that as it had been free that weekend, he downloaded it.  From there he read the included chapters of ‘Lament for the Living’ and proceeded to buy a copy.

How cool is that?
