THE TRAGICALLY TRUE ADVENTURES OF KIT DONOVAN is out in paperback!!
And it has a bright and shiny new cover. And it has a blurb from the legendary historical fiction writer Karen Cushman right there on the cover!
Isn’t it lovely? It totally reminds me of covers of books I read and loved when I was a kid. Plus, there’s just something so accessible about a paperback book.
Confession: When I opened the box of hard cover books Albert Whitman & Company sent me last year, I couldn’t touch them. Seriously. I could barely look at them. They just seemed so real and so scary and so serious I couldn’t quite believe they were mine.
But when I got my box of paperbacks last month, I reached right in and pulled one out. I even flipped through it. I wasn’t afraid of breaking it, or making it dirty, or otherwise mishandling it. It felt familiar – in a way the hard cover never did for me.
I hope that readers find the paperback as enticing and as comfortable as I do.
If you haven’t picked up a copy of THE TRAGICALLY TRUE ADVENTURES OF KIT DONOVAN, now you can for the paperback price. (How fun is that?). And if you have bought a hard cover, thank you! You still might want to take a look at the beautiful new paperback, though. It’s so pretty and such a good deal, it’s hard to resist.
