Paperbacks, Oh Paperbacks

Paperbacks Michelle Louring

Yesterday, I received the first paperback copies of the new editions of my books.

I picked up the package at the post office.

I got home.

I put the package on the table.

Then I proceeded to circle said package for half an hour, acting like it might go off and kill everyone (everyone being  me and my owl) if I were to open it.

I then opened the package because I was running late for an appointment and I didn’t have time to be scared of inanimate objects.

Somewhat anticlimatically, nothing blew up.

While not as bright as their digital counterparts (as expected, since ink has its limitations), the covers were still beautiful. The interior was gorgeous, with the choice of fonts and text size having hit the mark, and the title page I spent 3 hours obsessing over being worth every minute even though no one besides me is going to care.

But don’t worry: I hate the spines. They got a good talking to where I explained to them that their clashing colors were unacceptable and changes would have to be made.

I haven’t turned lenient all of a sudden.

Waterstones Is Training Delivery Owls. I Wonder If Artemis Can Get a Job?

Apparently Waterstones decided that if they can’t top Amazon in anything else, they will top them in crazy!

I thought it was pretty far-fetched when Amazon announced their new Prime Air program a few days ago, where they intend to deliver packages by drones, but it didn’t brighten up my day as Waterstones response today did.

Clearly, they’re not serious when they say they intend to train an army of owls to deliver books to their costumers, but take a look at the blog post anyway. The FAQ is hilarious!

Q. Isn’t this just what they did in Harry Potter?

A: Yes, this is exactly what they did in Harry Potter. You’re asking that as if this is a bad thing.

Maybe Artemis can get a job. He would have to deliver something small, like book marks, though(he’s tiny!)… Then again, he freaks out every time he sees paper towels, or anything that bears even the slightest resemblance to them, so maybe entrusting mail to him wouldn’t be the best idea…
