Chapter Two: Another Preview

There is a new preview of the youth drama publication Waiting for Regina for CreateSpace members and visitors. It features the entire chapter two with book cover of the novel.
https://www.createspace.com/Preview/1218707
For the record, it appears most individuals are reluctant to offer their viewpoints on a preview, which is their right and choice without obligation.




Nevertheless, there's is nothing to fear, you can provide your opinions nameless without anyone knowing who you are. And what you share could stick having value, your insight may be meaningful and benefit other writers, readers or visitors. Again, it is not required. Please, however, give it consideration if you feel inclined to express your thoughts.


If my book fare favorably on the market, I might treat myself to one of these desserts. (May it not be a long wait.)

Changing to Before from After

It is highly recommending that if you are publishing a book through varied platforms such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, CreateSpace, Lulu, Smashwords, and others. The content of the book should be the same on each of those venues, inside and out. 
It makes sense if the publication is priced smiliarly and being offered in different formats, print and digital. Recently, my first novel Waiting for Regina was differenting on that recommendation. The book cover was not exactly the same design among the online retailers. 
It is this week I made sure that the book cover is the same on each of the venues as much possible. The scene strip of the beach at the bottom of the front cover was removed leaving entirely the original cover of the first edition. It is my wish the adjustment will serve in the best interests of the public subtracting any confusion among the retailers.

Covering Regina

There is some distinction among the print editions of Waiting for Regina in their book covers. In aiding your understanding, the Barnes and Noble versions have a white border around the cover designs. Please note the printing examples below.


The orange dotted lines are printing measurements, you won't see them on your copy. The other edition, the CreateSpace version do not have white borderlines. The cover design varies a bit, I had to make changes on it because the back cover borderlines were not aligned properly. Eventually, all the covers will be the same designs on both the hardcover and printed editions.


Top and bottom (or second and third) images here are the front and back cover of the CreateSpace editions. Did you note the differences apart from the Barnes and Noble? The hint is the position of the iris of the eye in the watch for the back cover? Please feel free to express your viewpoints of the book covers. Not my wish to confuse you; the interior contents of the 2nd edition of Waiting for Regina are the same in the Barnes and Noble and CreateSpace print versions. From my understanding, all the print copies of the remaining first edition of the novel have sold out. If you wish to purchase the 1st edition it is only in electronic formats on sale at iBooks, Smashwords, and other online retailers.

Waiting for Regina Is Now in Hardcover

There is a pick of three editions of Waiting for Regina. If you look below in the screen shot on the right side of the image of the Barnes and Noble's page of the electronic version of the novel.  You see a distinction of prices. The Nook book is an epub, and it is also the first published 157 paged edition of Waiting for Regina before the recent revision.
There are paperback and hardcover editions of Waiting for Regina, these are the revised versions of 186 pages which include added content to the novel, a table of contents, and short author biography. I left out the additional materials last year to reduce the cost of producing the book.
You can read the entire book for free if you visit a Barnes and Noble bookstore repeatedly. That would be after a customer is downloading the free ebook on a tablet or smartphone. You have to read it in the store. The publication will disappear off your tablet if you return to your car in the parking lot. There are also digital formats of the first edition book on sale at Smashwords including Apple iBook.

For Now, No Waiting at Amazon

The 2nd edition of my novel Waiting for Regina is now on sale online at Amazon and CreateSpace in print and digital versions. My apology for the price increase, the cost for printing risen due to added content. The second edition of Waiting for Regina may be on sale soon on Barnes and Noble and other online retailers or in early April 2017.
