Signal Boost Tuesday — Prospero Regained in Trade Paper!
I was about to post about another author friend when I realized that today is the release in Trade Paper of PROSPERO REGAINED, the final book in my Prospero's Daughter series.
For financial reasons beyond the ken of mere mankind, Tor released the first two in paperback (mass market size) and the third one in the larger Trade Paper format.
Prospero Regained on Amazon
The Prospero Family is scattered across Hell, each in the place of punishmen for their besetting sin. Miranda must trek across the Inferno itself and gather them together, against all odd, if she is to have even a prayer of a hope of saving her father, the Dread Magician Prospero by midnight on Twelfth Night.

You can't judge a book by it's cover and all that, but a book with an ugly cover is unlikely to be judged further. So many SF&F titles put out these days have covers that, to put it mildly, do not entice me to pick up the book.
I don't think I could tell you why in any remotely analytical sense, but this cover makes my brain hit me on the head (if that's possible) and shout, "You have to read this! Buy it now!"
So—good on, ya. :)
I can recommend it. (Speaking as someone who refuses to buy hardcover fiction but bought the hardcover edition of this one anyway because Tor, for reasons just as ineffable as those that caused them to issue this one in trade instead of MM, was delaying the launch of any hardcover edition for longer than I could wait to read the rest of the series.)
But seriously, trade paperback -- ugh. It has all the disadvantages of paperback without the convenient size of MM; who thought this format was a good idea? :S
