With less than a week to go until The Passion of the Purple Plumeria pops up in stores, here are some questions that have popped up in my inbox rather a lot over the past few months:
Q. Where’s the hardcover?
A. Short answer: there isn’t one. The Passion of the Purple Plumeria is being published as a trade paperback original, which means it will be available in trade paperback (the larger, snazzier kind of paperback) and e-book, but not hardcover.
Q. Will The Passion of the Purple Plumeria be available in audio?
A. Yes! I am delighted to say that there is, indeed, an audio book and that Kate Reading will be narrating. The audio book will be available for download on iTunes and Audible. (I’m told that the links will go live on release day, August 6th.)
Q. Can I buy the audio book on CD?
A. No. There will be physical CDs for libraries, but they’re not generally for sale. (Although if you prefer physical CDs, I’ve been told that it is possible to download the book from Audible or iTunes and then burn it onto CD. Not having tried it myself, I can’t vouch for that personally.)
Q. How many more Pink books will there be?
A. As of now, two more: The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla, which is scheduled to be released in August 2014, and Pink XII, which doesn’t yet have a release date, but will probably be out at some point in 2015. I also have another stand alone novel (more on that soon!) coming out in summer 2014.
