I love when a proof comes in the mail. It's usually the first time I get to see one of my books as an actual book, rather than a stack of printed paper. This came yesterday:
So, you know... SQUEEEEE!
What do y'all think of the new cover direction? The proof shown above is a paperback, but I've been asked about the possibility of a hardcover edition. The problem is pricing. A hardcover would probably need to be priced around $35. True, it's three books in one, but that seems too high for a YA book, even though the individual editions retail for $13.99 each.
Would YOU pay $35 for a hardcover 3-in-1 edition? Seriously, let me know in comments.
