SHADE paperback now shipping!

Hey! I just checked Amazon and B&, and the Shade paperback is now shipping.

This trade paperback version has many cool features:

  • It's lightweight.
  • It has a pretty new cover--now featuring full Aura!!
  • It contains an excerpt from Chapter One of Shift, the sequel.
  • Like the hardcover version, the front title is debossed--ooh, swanky and sensual!
  • I hear the parts inside with all the words are pretty good, too.
You can order the Shade paperback from or B&, OR you can get a signed, personalized copy from my local independent bookstore, Constellation Books.

When you place your order with Constellation, be sure to let the nice folks there know whether you want it simply autographed or if you want it personalized (i.e., "To [name of awesome reader]"). Either enter it in the comment section on the order page or tell them on the phone. If you do not specify how you want it personalized, I will just sign my name.

If you haven't read Shade yet and are still wondering if you want to, Simon & Schuster has put the first 100 pages up for you to read for free.

What's not to love?
