The announcement was updated here.
I’ll have both the paperback and hardcover on hand – the hardcover is quite nice.
I’ve discounted the Hardcover (new Lulu feature), so the price is more palatable. There’s also a Lulu coupon code you can use at checkout this weekend only for 15% off! (well, 14.92% off in “honor” of Columbus). If you cannot make the launch party, and you want the hardcover, the coupon code is: EXPLORE305.
One more note about the hardcover: I ordered 25 (the first 25) for the launch party. I’m going to number them 1-25 (my wife gets #1). Hell, maybe someday I’ll be famous (likely for something other than my fiction, like maybe public indecency) and you can say you have a “Plourde Original”! Or something…
I’m back from the west coast, so maybe I’ll fit some bloggin’ in next week.
