When is the Book Coming Out?
I’m so excited that people are looking forward to reading my book Getting the Mercury Out. The question I’m getting everywhere is:
“When is the book coming out?”
My answer is:
“Next week. No wait…I mean next month. Hold on, what do you mean by ‘the book’?”
I’m not being totally scattered. In this digital age there is a good reason for my confusion.
Let me clarify.
Getting the Mercury Out is going to be released on Amazon.com in both eBook and paperback formats. The eBook will come first. It will be available next week for instant download. It’s going to be a Kindle edition, but luckily, you don’t need to own a Kindle device to read Kindle books. They can be read on PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, the list goes on. You can download the software that makes it all possible here.
Now I know that some of you still enjoy reading books the old fashioned way. Believe me, nothing makes me happier than taking a break from all that screen time and cracking open a book printed on paper. (Did you know that some folks call them ‘tree books’? I guess cause it rhymes with ‘eBooks’?)
So for all you paper lovers, some time in May, Amazon will release a paperback edition of Getting the Mercury Out. When exactly? That’s not certain. I will let you know as soon as I hear. Watch this space.
By the way, the book is going to look like this:
I’d like to take 100% of the credit for this awesome design, but I couldn’t have done it without the fabulous Susan Walsh. Earlier this week, she took a break from designing books for the rich and famous to walk me through the finer points of cover and interior design. Having a consultant like her on hand is an amazing experience. I’m learning so much!
So the countdown begins to the first half of the book launch. I will post here as soon as the eBook appears for sale on Amazon….
Yay! I can’t wait!
