Mistress of the Revolution: the paperback is coming!

Catherine Delors Mistress of the RevolutionSo my publisher tells me. It will be printed in a few days!

Sometimes the paperback cover of a book can be quite different from that of the hardcover edition. This is not the case here, which suits me very well since using a detail of Fragonard’s wonderful Stolen Kiss as my first novel’s cover had been my idea.

Do you notice a subtle difference, though? The colors of the title and my name have been reversed. We had tried it for the hardcover, and I liked it a lot then, so now I am very happy to have this color combination for the paperback. Many thanks to Claire Zion, my editor at NAL, for supporting this idea.

What about you? Do you like this new cover better?

The paperback will hit a bookstore near you on March 3, and it is already available from Amazon for pre-order.

If you know of a book club that would be interested in chatting with me, I am available, and enjoy this tremendously. Nothing like live feedback from readers.

    Many thanks, Cheryl! I will link to this. These days I can certainly use all the help and good wishes that come my way…

  2. Dear Catherine,

    Wonderful news about the paperback. During the month of February, The Book Connection has featured romance novels, and today we are featuring “Mistress of the Revolution”. You can find my post at http://thebookconnectionccm.blogspot.com/2009/02/february-featured-novel-mistress-of.html I also make a mention of the paperback coming out in a few days and posted a link so people can pre-order it from Amazon.

    Best of luck!

    Thank you so much, Elizabeth, I am truly honored!

  4. Yeah, I can’t wait. Oh, and I’ve just awarded you the Butterfly Award.

  5. Catherine Delors says:

    My apologies to your household, Suzanne, and many thanks for your kind words and visit. Hope to see you here often. I did enjoy my Sunday, which is unfortunately over…

  6. Suzanne G says:

    I am 3/4 through Mistress of the Revolution and am loving every minute of it! I originally heard about it via Tea at Trianon (Elena Vidal). I cannot put it down, which is effecting the running of my household…..*wink* But, a book like this comes along usually only once a year for me, so we’ll survive! Thought I’d pop over here to your blog and read what other interesting things you have written about . Hope you are enjoying your Sunday,

  7. Catherine Delors says:

    Thank you, Julianne! It is exciting and a bit scary at the same time…

  8. Congratulations, Catherine! Another milestone in your career…

  9. Catherine Delors says:

    Cinderella, Judith, I am delighted to have found two fans of the blue title! You are right, Judith, very Petit Trianon. Of course, there’s no way of knowing until we see the book actually printed. I can’t wait…

  10. Judith says:

    Congrats Catherine! I’ll be first in line on the 3rd of March! I love the new color combo! I’m a sucker for that watery Blue color. It’s very Petite Trianon!
    Best wishes!

  11. Cinderella says:

    I do like the blue title better! I think it makes the cover appear more colorful.

  12. Elisa says:

    Thanks for the notice–I’ll be watching out for it! :)

  13. Catherine Delors says:

    So do I, Amy!

  14. I like them both and I think that reversing the colors for that oh-so-subtle difference between both editions is a fabulous idea!

  15. Catherine Delors says:

    Thanks, Lucy! I, for one, am ready for the blue title. Just the right amount of change…

  16. Lucy says:

    Hi Catherine, I love glitz, so I am biased to the gold…but whatever cover, the book is a true winner in every sense.

  17. Catherine Delors says:

    Thanks, Penny! I hope the man-who-has-everything loves my novel. Let me know…

  18. Penny says:

    I like them both, It is a very vibrant, almost neon shade of blue. I think i prefer the gold, a contrast to the dark background.
    any word on the cover and title of number 2? and i have pre ordered your book. it will make a great gift for my friend, the man who has everything, except a bookshelf of Catherine Delors historical novels:-)
