Finally, A Bright Power Rising is available in paperback. Personally, I feel that it looks splendid. Its 5×8″ (my favorite book size) with cream paper and a matte finish cover. I never imagined that I would know the specifications for my favorite book size or have strong opinions on paper quality and cover finishes, but I do now!
It looks good on the shelf too! It nicely blends in.
My biggest concern was the layout of the maps in the paperback. That was why I hired Polgarus Studio to format the book for Createspace. Not only did Jason and Marina ensure that the maps were perfectly legible, but their layout was better than anything I could have imagined. They did a fantastic job and were worth every cent of their price. I am so glad I sought their help.
The maps are absolutely perfect!
As an aside, I needed both hands to hold the pages open so this picture was actually taken by my nose.
The book is currently available Createspace (https://www.createspace.com/4764841) and will be available on Amazon in five to seven days.
