Coming Soon to a Bookshelf Near You

Through Amazon’s CreateSpace print-on-demand service, Second Death will soon be available in Bookshelfa paperback format.

The proof (or prototype) I ordered arrived and is now undergoing my careful scrutiny. I have a few modifications to make and nuances to tweak, and as soon as that’s done the book will go on sale for $11.99.

Now, eBooks have their place. They’re convenient and they’re cheaper; but they will never compare to holding a real book in your hands. To hold it: to feel its thickness, to caress its cover, to run a finger along the spine, to leaf through the pages; that is when the magic sinks in. A physical book feels real . . . and yet not real at all, for it is something a little more than reality.

But more than anything, it’s the words that really count. Paper is but the conductor for the magic conjured from the pen. I will always prefer printer’s ink, but even in E-ink the words are the same.

Stay posted, the paperback is just around the corner.
