Kin Platt Message Board

Hi Chris, I think the distributors probably won't, which is why I let my own local indie bookseller know. Since they love me with a deep and abiding love, they pay attention to what I'm reading, what I'm ordering, and what I recommend. I bet mine will not be the only copy they sell.

Hi Matt, Thanks so much for spreading the word. I found the blog quickly enough. What a nice writeup, too. Love what he says about indie bookstores, but I do not know how long it takes for the distributors to alert such businesses that a new title is available.

Chris, well done. Thanks for making it happen. I've ordered my hardback. I also alerted my friend J. Kingston Pierce, who runs a highly attended blog called the Rapsheet about crime fiction. His blog doesn't usually deal with juvenile or young adult books but he included a note about <em>Sinbad and Me</em> in a post rounding up recent publication happenings.
I included a link to the Rapsheet blog the first time I tried posting this comment, but the comment got censored. So I don't know how to get you there...there are more than one blog with that name. I guess you'd have to do some creative googling. Anyway, I wanted to let you know the book got a little plug there.

The cover is beautiful!

Tah-Dahhhh! The hardcover and paperback editions of Sinbad and Me are now available online from both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. For some reason, the eBook versions take longer to get posted, seems counterintuitive, right?

Hi Kevin, YES, the eBook version of Sinbad and Me will be available in both Nook and Kindle formats, and the distributor should be up-loading it to both Barnes & Noble and Amazon. There's also a generic eBook format, and that format will be available, too. Enjoy!

That is fantastic that Sinbad and Me is being released around May 1. I can't wait to read it. I like to read books on my Nook. Will the ebook available be able to be read on a Nook?

Hi Andrew, I re-published Blue Man back in 2005, but it was a very small printing, and the originals from which it was printed have since been lost. The plan for this new publisher has been to start with Sinbad and Me and see how that one does, since it was always the most-popular of all Kin Platt's YA novels. If all goes well, then we would try to print the other Sinbad titles, The Mystery of the Witch Who Wouldn't and the Ghost of Hellsfire Street. Finally, it would be The Blue Man, a dogless kind of Steve Forrester prequel.

My apologies for a repeat question, but when is The Blue Man going to be republished????
Keeping these books locked up is a travesty. :D
