Trade paperbacks grow in popularity

I’m so old that I remember a world before trade paperbacks. You had your hardcover, and your mass market pocketbooks.

Trade paperbacks are increasingly popular, according to the USA Today. "If we want to appeal to a twentysomething audience, we have to do it at an affordable price," says Carrie Kania of HarperPerennial, which will publish a record 100 or so paperback originals this year. "And a trade paperback is the price of a new CD."... And the format has been a winning introduction to readers for best-selling authors such as Richard Russo, Sophie Kinsella and Jhumpa Lahiri, whose first books were paperback originals.”

Face of Betrayal is now available in a trade paperback. There’s no hard “on sale” date for this version, like there was for the hardcover, so Amazon has been selling it since about mid-month.
