Large print editions of all my novels are out now, through Brodart's McNaughton press. Season of the Witch, Magician, Dead Birmingham, Medusa and Lady Midnight are available on Amazon, as are the other, standard print versions, (trade paperback) Brodart will be featuring the series in the mystery section of their catalog, from which basically every library in the English-speaking world buys their large print collection. Words quail.

Meanwhile, I slave away on Roland Longville number six, The Burning Day, which is almost finished.

Wish me luck, my friends! And a happy and safe Fourth of July to all of you here on Crimespace.

Yes, I'm really expecting the library orders to account for most of sales. I'm also interested in ebooks (can they make the dent in the market we were promised years ago, now that the Kindles are here?) but it all pretty much remains to be seen.

I have a large print edition also. Yes, they're expensive. Libraries seem to buy a lot of them for their Large Print sections. I don't see them selling well on Amazon.

Huh, I didn't know that. Thanks for explaining.

Yeah, it's a huge market. The population is aging, and some publishers put nothing but these out. Libraries are THE forum for large print editions.

Happy Fourth to you, too! Congrats on the large print edition news.

And while you're busy practicing the safest in fireworks enjoyment, might you take a moment to explain something? What is the benefit of releasing large print editions? I understand they are for readers with poor eyesight. But are there really scores of people demanding 20 point font? Aren't these runs expensive to produce?

I don't mean any of this about you in particular. I've always wondered that about large print editions.
