Paperback Writer!

Okay, so I think it's only fitting that we all have that Beatles song in our heads. I mean, seriously. Because today, I have become a paperback writer!

That's right. POSSESSION is now available in paperback!



I also think it's hilarious that these are the words at the beginning:
Dear Sir or Madam will you read my book 
It took me years to write, will you take a look

Doesn't that sound like querying? It's exactly what we do! And then sometimes, if you don't give up and keep working hard, you actually can become a paperback writer.

You can get the POSSESSION paperback here.

And don't forget that there's a pre-release tour for SURRENDER going on! Lots of chances to win an ARC and get inside information about that book before it comes out. Click here for the full schedule. And CLICK HERE FOR TODAY'S TOUR STOP at I Read Banned Books. 



So do you want to become a paperback writer?

Congrats, Elana! This is exciting. Gotta dig myself of a time-challenged hole now, but your book's on my TBR list when we hit the beach this summer.

Congratulations! What an achievement! I do hope I can get there someday. I once heard that Barry Manilow once said that when he started hearing all his songs while riding the elevator, he knew he'd made it as a musician. I think paperback release is like that for writers. If you have a book that's been released in paperback, you are officially a real, successful, grown-up writer! Yea!

How appropriate is this? PERFECT, I'd say. CONGRATS!!!

Laura Pauling said...

That DOES sound like querying! Happy Paper Anniversary to POSSESSION! You've even spruced up your outfit! (Though I miss your sparkles.)

Happy paperback release, Elana!

I'd like to start in hardcover first, and have that book sell so well that they release it in paperback.

Is that too much to ask???
