Imprinted: The Paperback
Several people had asked about a print edition of Imprinted, the Magic ex Libris novelette coming out in January. (Conveniently available for pre-order in electronic format from Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords, and Google Play.) I know there won’t be huge demand for a higher-priced paperback of a 15,000 word story, but I figured, what the heck. So I spent the weekend working on typesetting and formatting, along with this:
It looks like the paperback will be priced around $5.99. I might be able to knock that down a little, but I’ve only got so much room for print-on-demand. (I’ll also try to get some author copies to sell at conventions, and I might be able to sell those a little more cheaply as well.)
I’m waiting for files to get approved, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to do a pre-order link for the paperback, but if so, I’ll share that link as soon as it becomes available.
Thanks to everyone who’s expressed their excitement over this story. I can’t wait for you to read it. Especially the ending 😉

I’m delighted. I always pick print over ebooks so if I bought the ebook I’d never get around to it.

I’ve already pre-ordered the ebook from Google Play, and read the sample. So I say “ACK!” Peanuts-style to having to wait another 6 weeks.
Not that I don’t have plenty to keep me busy till then…

Hopefully, there will be copies available at Confusion.

It seems appropriate to buy Jeneta’s story in ebook format, but I’m thrilled to hear there will be a print version as well, so I can put it on the shelf next to my other Magic Ex Libris books. (My husband will also be happy, since he doesn’t read ebooks at all.)

JoelZ – I should have a few copies on hand by then, yes 🙂

I wonder if print on demand works in Canada? I know where there is a store in New York that does it.
I don’t do eBooks at all.

Having all the others in HC means Ill have to stick with the digital copy of this one.
My OCD wont be able to bear having a paperback next to the HardCovers on the shelf
