Update on Dust Cover for Lulu HC

I realized the text on the new dust cover of my novel at Lulu.com was not large enough. I should have noticed earlier because of wearing progressive bifocal lenses. The book cover was adjusted to improve the type. One of the objectives is to have the lettering so noticeable people can see it from a distance if the book is positioning on display at a book shop.

Another Hard Cover Edition of Waiting for Regina

At the Barnes and Noble online store there is a hard-cover edition of Waiting for Regina in addition to the digital e pub and paperback versions of the novel. That attractive, white trimed B&N hard-cover have the cover design printed on it with no dust cover as you may be viewing in the photo on the left with the little black cellphone. It is on sale for $17.69, the price may increase to $19 due to the increased content from the third revision.
Another hard-cover edition was recently produced at Lulu, this is the one that is having the dust cover. It can be purchasing online for $20.79, if you are a member of Lulu you might get a discount. You may be aware Barnes and Noble offer incentives for their annual members. The Lulu dust jacket with inside flips appears as image below. The front cover inside flip is left partially blank for pending store retailers. It is highly desirable for me to also having a dust cover version on the market, thank you for visiting and happy reading!

App To The Times

Comfortable reading: a section

Library by an unknown artistian.
Having both the reading apps of Kindle and Nook Press, I learned recently of another difference between the two. People who purchased either the first or second edition of my novel Waiting for Regina can ask Amazon to update their digital copy to the third edition of the publication without cost. What about the Nook version of my book on the same tablet?
It was surprising for me to discover the Nook app automatically updated the novel to the third edition. I did not have to contact a Barnes and Noble's customer representative by phone or online. Although Amazon's current publishing profits and successes are painfully crushing to the B & N's Nook division, nevertheless, the Nook app have that updating advantage over the Kindle reading app. Is this a feature you favor? You may comment below if you wish, thank you.
