Anderson’s offers “priority numbers” to readers in order to be at the front of Nalini’s signing line. You can receive a priority number by purchasing your copy of HEART OF OBSIDIAN at Anderson’s now! Simply ask the store to provide you with a priority number when you purchase your book and bring that number with you to the event on June 10th. You may also purchase the book online through Anderson’s website,www.
Don’t forget we also have a book club chat for Nalini Singh’s Heart of Obsidian on June 15. We’ll deconstruct this book, the series, and start the speculations for the future. I promise I know nothing and will be speculating/guessing along with every other reader.
“Personally, we would be hard-pressed to say The Silver Crown has ‘significant’ literary value and is a work ‘of great import,'” Richman wrote. But, he concluded, “we cannot simply dismiss the work as nonserious literature because it deals with werewolves and other paranormal creatures and activities. For better or worse, some segment of the population is fascinated by werewolves and other mythical beings. … Werewolves, in fact, have played a role in popular fiction for centuries.” Law.com
It’s hard to say whether digital books have a higher margin because the costs of the production of a book (cover, advance, editing, marketing) is absorbed in the print version or whether it is an apples to apples comparison but according to the information provided by Harper, “the ebook edition is 39 percent more profitable, returning an additional $2.20 in profit to the publisher over the hardcover. Authors and agents will immediately note that much of the additional profit exists because the royalty allocation once earned out is $1.58 lower on the ebook than for the hardcover. On a hardcover, the author earns 30 percent of the publisher’s gross revenue, and 42.5 percent of the total margin (what the author and publisher together earn). For now, on the ebook, the author earns 25 percent.“ Publishers Lunch
