MMP for TTD!

Use your decoder rings for the subject line! It means that there will be a mass-market paperback edition of Tall, Dark & Dead coming to a store near you in April of 2012 (or via pre-order today!)

If you're still scratching your head and asking, "Grandma, what's a mass-market paperback?" Well, honey, back in the late Jurassic, when your nana was young, MMPs were pocket-sized books you used to see on newstands. Most of nana's favorite books were mass-market paperbacks. In fact, nana is *so* old, we used to just call them "paperbacks," because there really weren't a heck of a lot of trade paperbacks to confuse them with.

Well, guess what? They still make 'em, and I'm super-psyched to be getting one!! And I hope they sell like HOTCAKES... no, child, I have no idea what a hotcake is or why it sells so well...

It's about FREAKING time! I never buy big sized books but made the exception for three of the Garnet books. Will love to see them come out in paperback. Yes, I never knew them by anything else either. The large size paperbacks just seemed like a money grab to me. So glad they are starting your books as paperbacks. I know you will get a ton of new readers now. The Garnet series is so much fun to read and well written with plenty happening to keep readers wanting more. Maybe you will get to write more of them. That would be pretty fabulous!
