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.
