I received a little flurry of emails this evening from folks who'd pre-ordered the mass market paperback of Under the Skin from Amazon. They'd been informed that their orders had been cancelled as the paperback was no longer available and they wanted to know what was up.
As I mentioned the other day, Random House has decided to issue UTS as a trade paperback, not a mass market. Thence the unavailability of the mass market paperback. (E-books are not affected.)
I emailed Herself, my editor, and she said that they would be updating Amazon quite soon -- that the decision to change formats only became official this morning.
So the trade version will be available for pre-order. . . again . . soon.
Herself also said that they were working on a new and different cover -- I was reasonably happy with the blue road one but will be interested to see what they come up with now.
Many thanks to those of you who pre-ordered -- sorry for the inconvenience.
