Into the Wilderness in trade paper

I may have mentioned that Bantam is re-issuing Into the Wilderness in the fall, in trade paperback format. ((TPB, sometimes referred to as a trade paper edition, is a paperback book in which the text pages are identical to the text pages in the hardcover edition. It is usually the same size as the hardcover edition. The only difference is the softbinding; and the quality of the paper is usually higher than that of a mass market paperback.

Trade paperbacks are typically priced less than hardcover books and higher than mass market paperbacks. Virtually all “Advance Reader’s Copies” are issued in trade paperback format. Wikipedia ))

What Bantam hopes (and I hope too, of course) is that this new edition will catch the eye, leading to a whole new readership. If it does well, (and I mean, really well), they will probably re-issue the other titles as well in new format with new cover art.

I’m quite happy with this design. The cut-off face thing is big now and sometimes I don’t like it, but I think it works here. And they got the clothes right. And the hair. So I’m satisfied. No, I’m more than satisfied. I’m really pleased that Bantam has such faith in the series.

  1. That’s great news, Rosina. I talk up this series wherever I can because I really do love it.

    I’ve noticed the “cut off face” thing myself. I suppose it gives the reader enough to go on without taking away all the imagination.

  2. I like the cover. I’ll be looking for this when it’s released in the fall.

    I really like the new look of your blog!

  3. That’s a gorgeous cover. I think it’s a good sign Bantam is doing this. It can only help the series. I hope it attracts a whole new line of readers.

  4. Oh My Rosina! It is absolutely gorgeous! I really love this cover. I personally do judge a book by its cover and I would immediately be drawn to this one. It’s a great idea from the publishers. A side note: I’ve thought before about the Outlander book covers and how boring they look.

  5. Wow, that looks fantastic. I need to get a copy – my original ItW is very dog-eared by now after many, many re-reads. :)

  6. I love this new cover – looks fantastic…. I’m definitely going out to get it (if it’s being released here in Australia as well).

  7. What a great show of confidence and an attractive cover – looking forward to the new look.

  8. I LOVE IT!!! What a beautiful cover and it reminds me a bit (cuz it’s now on the right of my screen) QOS’s cover also has the cut off face. Very nice indeed!

    1. Very effective cover.BUT what I would really like is for an UNABRIDGED audiobook version with Kate Reading narrating.Oh to hear “Into the Wilderness” as it should have been done.Any hope of this?

      1. Karen — it already exists. Has existed for what, five years? All of the books are available in unabridged audio read by Kate Reading.

        Here’s the library catalog listing for ITW, and you’ll find all the others there too. link

  9. the series is one of the most intriguing that i have ever read…enjoyed all and waiting for the next one
