Pink I in Mass Market!

As someone who grew up believing that the Beatles’ Paperback Writer was a vocational theme song, I’m counting down the days until The Secret History of the Pink Carnation makes its mass market paperback debut.

Today? After a long stretch of “no image available”, Amazon just posted the new paperback cover of Pink I.

It’s up on B&N and Borders, too. I know it sounds silly, but having the image up there makes it so much more real to me.

Only one month and fourteen days until Pink goes mass market!

    Call me stubborn or die-hard, but I’m still in love with the original cover art. Accept no substitutes! hehe

    That’s great news! I had that same view of “Paperback Writer” when I was younger…it’s a calling. I just started a doctoral program in literature and I’m recommending your series to *everyone* I meet. Now I can tell them that the paperback will be out soon!

    I am so loving this cover! I secretly want a second copy just for that reason… 🙂

    Congrats Lauren! Yay!

    Is it just me, or does this cover have the same feel as the new Orchid cover? If they could save that cover for the mass market release we might like it better since we’ll already have a more original one. Just a thought…
