The Publication Schedule

Since I’ve switched from one book a year to two books a year, what’s coming out when has grown a little more confusing.

Here’s the publication schedule for both Pinks and stand alones for the near future:

The Ashford Affair (hardcover): available now!

(UK edition available now, Spanish edition appearing May 28, Polish edition June 11, Italian edition in July, German edition September 20, and French edition TBA);

The Passion of the Purple Plumeria, aka Pink X (trade paperback): August 6, 2013;

The Victorian Book, aka Stand Alone Novel #2, untitled (hardcover): spring 2014;

The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla, aka Pink XI (trade paperback): August 2014.

The two new Pinks, The Passion of the Purple Plumeria and The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla, are coming out as trade paperback originals– which means that it’s just coming out in trade paperback, no hardcover. On the plus side, it means everyone gets to read the book at the same time, no waiting for the paperback to come out a year later!

I don’t have an exact publication date for The Ashford Affair paperback yet, but I’ve been told it will be early 2014 (before Stand Alone Novel #2 comes out).

    Thanks – this looks great!

    I’m in the UK, and my copy of The Ashford Affair is what I would call a trade paperback, i.e. a larger than usual paperback. I just double-checked both the book itself, and Amazon UK, and it’s definitely not a hardcover (although I could have bought a hardcover instead).

    Hi, HJ! Ooops, I should have specified that the various international editions are all in different formats, some hardcover, some trade paperback. The UK edition is trade paperback.

    Just to make life more confusing, the U.S. hardcover edition is available in the UK, but the UK trade paperback isn’t available in the U.S. There’ll be a separate U.S. trade paperback release next year, possibly with a different cover.

    All I can say is that you are an amazing young woman!! Have you even taken time to “baby shop” in the midst of your writing schedule? (Nevertheless, I’m so lookin forward to all the new stuff!!)
