Four Things on a Monday: More Book Covers!

A few days ago, Thing 1 (age 5) noted that Memorial Day was coming up. She said, "I know it's supposed to be about people who fought in wars, but I always think about animals instead." Whether you guys are remembering soldiers or animals, I hope you have a good one.

1. I did some housekeeping over the weekend, as in re-tagging every single blog post and removing funny but useless post tags. So hopefully it's now easier to find butt-kickings, writing posts, rants, events, etc. Without having to dig through posts. Here is the complete list.

2. Paperback. Shiver. It comes out tomorrow in stores and I think is already available online. Rumor has it that it also has blue ink for the text like the hardcover. I am keen to see if this is indeed true. I am planning a ninja trip to the Garrisonville, VA Borders this week to sign their copies.

3. I've had a rash of requests on ordering signed copies of books, so I'm going to post a link to the independent bookstore that ships signed copies of my books in the U.S. and Canada (unfortunately I don't have any way to set this up for overseas yet, though if you're a bookstore who ships overseas and you want to try to work something out with me, let me know if you have any ideas). Anyway, here's the link -- you can also pre-order signed copies of Linger here.

4. I also uploaded a bunch more of some of my favorite things . . . foreign covers. Oooh! Aaaaah! And yes. The Italian edition of LINGER did get renamed DEEPER. Yes. I know. It's still pretty, right?

German edtion of Shiver

I was just at our local Barnes and Noble on Saturday and I saw the Shiver paperback!! I was tempted to get it even though I already have the hard cover, but I restrained myself. And yes it does have blue ink :):):)

I think about animals this day too:)

I do love seeing all these international covers. There is something about the Brazilian edition that is quite moving. Congratulations!

I hope life can only get better said...

Thanks, it is so interesting to see all the international covers, they are really pretty! Do you have a hand in the names of the international editions?

32, Amelia, can you believe it!?

And nope, I don't usually have much say in the titles/ covers of the foreign editions. Which I guess is probably a good thing since there are so many of them . . .

Why did they rename it? Just curious.

Caffenero said...

How strange! Now I noticed that in the Latvian cover they changed ALSO your name :O
As far as I know you have to do it if you have a different alfabet, do they have?
