So the first bits of data are coming back from my pre-sale launch. Exact numbers are hard to get, but judging by indirect evidence, it seems like the paperback and hardback versions of my book are selling better than the ebook versions. I find that a little surprising. The ebook is far more economical IMHO and more accessible.
I tried reaching out to some of those who have pre-ordered the print copies, and I did get two responses. They were both fairly similar. Essentially they said, "This is the kind of book I'd want to display in my house/on my table."
I'm very flattered by that. I can't take much credit for the cover, though. It was the brilliant artists at Eight Little Pages who put that together for me, specifically Claire. She's incredibly talented at making great looking covers.
But anyway, I can see what the respondents mean. I find the hardcover jacket particularly attractive myself, because the main element (the dire wolf) stretches from front flap to back flap as you can see:
I just want to shout out a big thank you to everyone who's ordered my book already! We're just getting started, and it's going to get even better as we go along together :)
