Purple Plumeria FAQs

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.

Are there any housekeeping questions I haven’t covered? Just post them in the Comments section below….

    Hallo Ms. Willig!

    I realise your on the brink of a book release, which might be why my email went unnoticed but it is sort of a ‘housekeeping’ question rather than anything else which is why I felt I ought to post it here!?

    I know we’re allowed to use the ‘cards’ that were featured on the post for 11th of July , as you encouraged us to share the ‘cards’ anywhere on the net, which I did, as I’ve decided to rotate them on my newly created blog which launches soonish, so I only picked the ones I liked best, and saved them. I always direct anyone who clicks the card/badge to your website as well.

    However, what about the ‘new ones’!? For instance the ones that promote each Carnation book? Are we allowed to save those and use on our blog as well? I thought that might be a clever way to start a blog post after each book I read as I never had the proper chance to get past Pink I!

    Thank you for always addressing our concerns and questions! I appreciate the time you give to us through your website and blog!

    Dear Jorie,

    I’m so sorry I missed your email! I have a little eleven day old at home right now, so I’m just beginning to catch up on the email backlog….

    Anyway, you can absolutely use any of the cards! In fact, I would be delighted if you did. Thanks so much for checking with me about it, though!
