and it's betsy for the win!  
Just got back from the city, where the only shopping I did was to buy another bag to put all the books my editors gave me in. Harlequin loaded me up, but I gotta say it's Betsy Mitchell for the win with an advance copy of Naomi Novik's EMPIRE OF IVORY, fourth book in her Temeraire series. Bwahaha. I know what I'm reading on the plane tonight. :) Also: OMG. The foreign translations of Naomi's books look so awesome. The Korean one is *gorgeous*. So jealous! But not really. I don't even know her, but I'm terribly pleased for her. :)

For being stuck, it's been a pretty good day. I met a bunch of people at Del Rey, and met the new head editor at Luna, and only got lost on the subway twice, where 'lost' means 'I went the wrong direction'. And now I'm going to the airport really early so that I can be damned sure to get on that plane and go *home*!

Any possibility that the new one will get a clue and start putting stuff out on mass market paperback instead of trade paperback?

Or at least putting out MM paperbacks sooner?

It's not a matter of cluefulness. It's a matter of trade paperback having a much higher profit margin, and for the books they're continuing to put out in TPB instead of MMPB, their sales in TPB are continuously high enough to warrant the TPB format. *Believe* me, I understand just how frustrating it is, but until sales fall below a certain threshold, it makes more financial sense for the company to maintain the TPB format.

And I gotta say, as a writer, I also get a lot more bang per book on TPBs, so I'm terribly, terribly grateful to everybody who keeps grinding their teeth and shelling out the higher price for the trades. :)

And of course, for the ones like me, who hate to switch book sizes in the middle of a series, they manage to get us, too. Heh.
